South Tampa welcomed its newest Italian eatery earlier this week when La Dolce Vita opened in the space formerly occupied by Le Boudoir restaurant.
According to its website, the restaurant opened on January 17.
The menu is full of Italian dishes crafted by their chef from Naples, Italy. There are light pasta dishes, pizza and pressed paninis on the lunch menu, while the dinner menu offers comforting pasta dishes like lasagna, lobster ravioli, Penne Pomodoro, Carbonara and Bolognese. Other entrees include risotto, veal and chicken parmesan, baked salmon.
Although this concept shares the name of the La Dolce Vita in Sarasota, a representative of the Sarasota restaurant confirmed that the Tampa concept is not related—so make sure you check your GPS before heading over there.
La Dolce Vita is now open at 3310 S Dale Mabry in South Tampa, from 11 a.m.- 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m.- 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Check out the new South Tampa Italian restaurant and decide for yourself if La Dolce Vita lives up to its motto of “Authentic. Classic. Tasty.”
