Mediterranean restaurants abound in Los Cabos, but the northern Italian fare served at La Dolce bears a closer resemblance to Italy’s European neighbors France and Austria. Think more butter and less olive oil. At La Dolce, you can expect rich sauces, more beef, and homemade pastas. Nearly two decades in, co-owners Stefan Miotto and Juan Calderoni know how to keep customers coming back. There’s a lot to choose from on this menu. Start with antipasti like thinly sliced fish carpaccio in La Dolce’s secret sauce or trifolati misto (shrimp and calamari sautéed with garlic, capers, red pepper, and white wine with Pomodoro). The lasagna is made with Bolognese sauce and a béchamel with mozzarella and Parmesan. La Dolce also serves an excellent beef tenderloin with Gorgonzola and mushroom sauce. You can’t leave without trying the tiramisu. Cabo San Lucas: Miguel Hidalgo and Zapatas, (624) 143-4122, www.restauranteladolce.com. Nightly 5 p.m.–midnight.
