Dolce Ital­ian

Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - Showtime - South Broward - - BARS & CLUBS -

On the busy street of Collins Av­enue, amidst art deco build­ings and swanky night­clubs, is Dolce Ital­ian, a restau­rant tucked in­side the Gale South Beach Ho­tel. Happy hour is of­fered seven days a week from 4-8 p.m. at the bar and café area only. Sadly, this means you can’t sit out­side and watch the char­ac­ters of South Beach walk by, though there is plenty of traf­fic through the Gale to keep en­ter­tained. Dolce has an ex­ten­sive wine se­lec­tion, and dur­ing happy hour, four of their house wines in­clud­ing Prosecco, Pinot Gri­gio, Chi­anti and Rosé Lacryma Christi Sor­rentino are avail­able for ei­ther $8 a glass or $25 a bot­tle. The only beer avail­able on draft at happy hour is the Peroni ($4). There are eight cock­tails on spe­cial, each $8. The Spicy Rasp­berry Collins is nei­ther too spicy nor sweet, poured with Ab­so­lut vodka, lime, fresh rasp­berry, spicy syrup and ginger beer. And Dolce knows how to serve a good Old-Fash­ioned, too. Their Maple Wood Smoked Old Fash­ion is served with High West Camp­fire Whiskey, An­gos­tura, mole bit­ters and sugar. Pizza is one of Dolce’s spe­cial­ties. Dur­ing happy hour, three are avail­able at a dis­counted rate in­clud­ing a spicy salami, a broc­coli and Ital­ian sausage and a tra­di­tional Margherita, all $8. All other happy hour ap­pe­tiz­ers are also $8, in­clud­ing meat­balls, tuna tartare and gnoc­chi al pomodoro. Happy hour: 4-8 p.m. Mon­day through Sun­day Rec­om­mended drink: Spicy Rasp­berry Collins ($8) Con­tact: 1690 Collins Ave., Mi­ami Beach, 786-975-2550, Dol­ceI­tal­ianRes­tau­rant.com!
