UPDATES TONIGHT:

Starts smooth…

… then it bites!
-THE DRINKS; “SENATOR’S SON”- 

The drink tonight is the Senator’s Son which gets its name from the Bruce Willis movie Sin City. (FYI:The bad guy is not stealing mangos.)

Dolce Italiano’s “Senator’s Son” is  pungent. Smelling of mango vodka & Cointreau. Just like the name provides us with two meanings, the drink has two layers of flavor. One nice. One powerful.

A blended Mango puree. Very even. Very good on a warm Florida day. It starts smooth then bites! And finally finishes smooth. A fun drink!

Taste even better than it looks!

-THE PLATES TONIGHT; FILET BRUSCHETTA–

Tonight’s dish was excellent. And very comfortable.

Buffalo La bruschetta continued. And Chris just right around the edges. The texture is warm and gooey ready and soft crunchy nearly out to her sides. Hardy with the tenderloin seasoned just so. Through this bite each layer is different. And nice. Comfort level 100%. No way to disagree with this plate at Dolce Italiano.

Can you spot them all?

-ATMOSPHERE- WHERE’S WALDO OF WINE

*Note* if you look closely you’ll find hints in the decor at Dolce Italiano of an extensive wine bottle collection. The items are hidden thru the entire decor of Dolce Italiano.

-A personal note-

0608161931b

I, as a local radio DJ, am not a professional restaurant critic. My tastes are much like an average person who enjoys nice things.
Hopefully in sharing my experience from Dolce Italiano’s – and talking about the Atmosphere, Plates & Drinks- you will develop your own favorites.

-ATMOSPHERE-
**UPDATE**See inside Dolce Italiano venue in this video here
Just weeks ago, there was no decorative lighting in the building. The chairs were still in bubble wrap.
Now, Frank Sinatra plays overhead.
Today, in earthen tone surroundings and among the smooth white cloth tablecloths, is the kind of soft light one can feel handsome in. “Casual Fine Dining” is what they call it. The attire is relaxed, which is wonderful because just outside, Panama City Beach summers are 90 plus degrees. The sea breeze at the sugar-sand beach is a common escape. Inside, at Dolce Italiano, is an escape from the outside. Dolce Italiano selected casual attire, because it is that escape.
-THE DRINKS; THE HEMINGWAY REMIXED- Dolce’s “El Floridita”

THE HEMINGWAY – A refreshing citrus drink for the pallet, with a history!
-THE DRINKS; “THE BRIDGE ALLIANCE”-

The HUXTABLE; quickly becoming a signature refreshment
-THE DRINKS; -THE HUXTABLE-

Refreshing.

“This drink has pop to it!” There are several layers of tastes to The Huxtable. Even in the moments following a sip, and setting the drink back down on the table, more strawberry & basil, yes hints of chilling-basil surprises appear. The Huxtable drinks easily especially on a balmy Florida day.

If you are a fan of Martini style of drinks: stay tuned for more about this signature Dolce drink.*

*no pre-purchased pre-flavored vodka is allowed. Dolce Italiano is proud drinks are perfected in-house.

**UPDATE**

-THE PLATES; APPETIZER GOURMET PIZZA

0629162100c
APPETIZER PIZZA -with the perfect crust!

0629162100~2

An adventure of fun, came from the owner’s suggestion. “Here are one of our brand-new menu items.” Dolce’s -APPETIZER GOURMET PIZZA took over a month in the creation process. Dolce wanted to get the crust just so.

“The Owner suggested the grape pizza!?” – My Brain

The name might throw you, but this soft-blending sweet of grape (akin to the tastes of Hawaiian style pizza) combines with the Gorgonzola/mozzarella cheese, rosemary, & olive oil subtlety in the agreeably pleasing way. (All inside the most perfect crust. -My Brain) We even had one of the escaped grapes roll away on us! If you are up for an adventure, start here!

-THE PLATES; PURSE AND PEAR-

The first bite of PURSE & PEAR went by much too fast. I needed to have another bite before my wife could nearly finish the plate.

 We learned from the owner, who explained over dinner, that PURSE & PEAR almost didn’t make it to Dolce’s final hand-selected menu. We are happy it did.
PURSE & PEAR is an instant favorite with a softened subtle sweetness. PURSE & PEAR we award The highlight of our evening” award.

I highly recommend this flavorful bit of a surprise. PURSE & PEAR is satisfyingly-full flavored, yet light, with Basil & Alfredo within creamy-magic.

0614162021~2
Delicately fluffy with every cheesy forkful. But not overpowering. Which can be easy to do in a dish like this.

-THE PLATES; EGGPLANT NAPOLEON-

The layers of EGGPLANT NAPOLEON “feel like you’re being naughty with the crisp of the healthy.” – my wife

-SUMMARY-

From the restaurant’s building itself, to select atmosphere & decor; framework of staff; revolving dishes; & range of flavors; Dolce Italiano’s capacity is to be intentionally good in all ways a fine dining restaurant should. We predict Dolce Italiano strengthening a foothold in Panama City Beach with every passing day and for years to come. (For more of Dolce’s other plates and drinks you may click here.)
