Ever had to decline a Sunday brunch invitation because there is nobody at home to mind your toddlers and the thought of them running riot in a fancy hotel is unbearable? Or maybe you prefer not to overindulge on a Sunday when you have work the next day. Well then, Dolce Vita’s Saturday brunch is perfect for you, so sit back and enjoy the sweet life for a few hours.
Dolce Vita’s kitchen is headed up by Cesena-born Chef Marco Pedrelli and serves mostly traditional Italian fare with a contemporary touch. The brunch is à la carte, which makes it very relaxing because you’re not constantly hopping up and down to a buffet and missing out on interesting snippets of conversation with friends.
You can choose to have small tasting portions of all 10 starters and all 12 mains, and then re-order larger portions of your favourites. Alternatively, select a few dishes and have a larger portion of those. Standout dishes include wild forest mushroom soup, carpaccio of Australian beef tenderloin, orecchiette pasta with ragout of venison, bacon and pecorino cheese, Norwegian salmon with spring vegetables, and roasted rack of lamb with provençale ratatouille. If you still have room after all that, the dessert buffet has plenty of tempting offerings including ricotta cheese tart with berries, rice pudding with candied fruit and crème brûlée.
