When owner Alessandra Siniscalco opened Café Piazza Dolce, becoming the chef of a celebrated Italian trattoria was the last thing on her mind. While the restaurant originally sold only espresso, gelato, and fresh baked goods like lobstertails and sfogliatella, Café Piazza Dolce's popularity soon transformed it into a cozy eatery serving authentic Italian pastas, pizzas, and grilled dishes. The menu, comprised of daily lunch specials, a weekend brunch, and daily dinner selections, brings together entrees from every region of Italy. Eggplant Campagnola and signature Bruschetta salads topped with fresh mozzarella and prosciutto often start dinners, followed by house-made pastas, mile high seafood entrees or perfectly grilled meats for main courses. Hand-tossed pizzas rise in wood-fired ovens, topping with ingredients such as egg, prosciutto, or bacon pesto, and the kitchen's grill chars a wide range of proteins from steak to salmon. On the weekends, the chefs have a great time preparing signature breakfast panini with 4 fried eggs and layers and layers of salumi. Now a full restaurant seating 60 and three quaint dining rooms to experience including an enchanting four season gazebo, Cafe Piazza Dolce will surely be a memorable dining experience.
