Life is indeed sweeter, thanks to La Dolce, an Italian eatery that embraces a Northern Italian trattoria style. Co-owner Stefan Miotto is from that region, which is known for using less tomato and instead incorporating wine or broth for liquid and relying heavier on butter rather than olive oil. And here at the restaurant Miotto co-owns with Juan Calderoni, you’ll quickly see that seafood and fish are big (think mussels in wine sauce). An appetizer of sautéed mushrooms with garlic, red pepper, and white wine is served with a basket of bruschetta.
The primo course may just be the house-made egg noodles with zucchini and. Spaghetti al Cartoccio is a seafood dish chockfull of clams, shrimp, and calamari and served in a white wine sauce.
