After driving by this hidden gem in Beverly Hills for a couple of years, I finally was able to check out La Dolce Vita. I had heard good things about it and a lot of lore related to it's stint as a favorite spot of the Rat Pack. It did not disappoint. Its classic Hollywood past would be enough of a reason to stop in for a visit, but don't be fooled - this is a lovely spot to dine with delicious food and a wonderful ambiance. I had the special ravioli (veal, cheese with a marsala wine sauce full of tender and tasty bits of shiitake mushrooms) - amazing! My friend went with the Veal Scallopine Marsala which was also very tasty. The wine was delicious and the house Tiramisu is not to be missed. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and very polished. Overall it was a fantastic experience and one I can't wait to repeat again very soon.
