La Dolce Vita
When you want to sit on a big ivy-covered patio, eat some pasta, and bring up that trip to Rome that you’ve been “planning,” check out La Dolce Vita near Palmer Park. It’s been around for years, but unless you knew it was there, you’d drive by without giving it a second thought. Once you enter through the large iron gates though, you’re hit with the smell of garlic and greeted by a friendly Italian man waiting at the door. Besides all of the red sauce classics, La Dolce Vita is known for traditional dishes you won’t find anywhere else in Detroit, like Pollo Saltimbocca, and an extensive Italian wine list.
