A firm favourite for Italian cuisine, Dolce Vita focuses on the freshness of ingredients. Led by Monza-born chef de cuisine Giorgio Maggioni, the culinary team whips up a reliable selection of classic dishes. Highlights include a hearty dish of handmade pappardelle with lamb ragout. Popular mains such as the pan-seared Tajima Wagyu beef tenderloin is juicy and flavourful. The dessert of crostata al limone—a sweet and citrusy ensemble of lemon curd, sable biscuit, meringue and elderflower ice cream—makes for a delicious ending. Service is impeccable and accommodating, and the staff are always ready to answer requests promptly and warmly. The elegant interior pairs the breezy atmosphere of Mediterranean resorts with calming blue seats and wooden furnishings. Panoramic views of the skyline also make the restaurant a popular spot for special occasions.
The impressive wine list features a wide range of wines from both the old and new worlds, some with unusual provenance; these include the Château Musar, an organic-certified Lebanese wine produced in the Bekaa Valley. Besides a diverse selection from celebrated regions in Italy, France and Spain, the menu also includes varieties from wineries in Australia, Germany, Slovenia, Switzerland and the US.
