Dolce Vita Pizzeria & Enoteca

This Montrose institution – owned by culinary mastermind Marco Wiles along with two other neighborhood favorites, Da Marco and Vinoteca Poscol – makes for the perfect date night. Downstairs, the double-sided wine bar and covered patio are one of the hottest spots to see-and-be-seen, while upstairs, a funky maze of dining rooms offers lots of quiet tables. The menu reads like a tour through Italy, with small plates of fennel bagna cauda, calamari with mint and citrus, and salumis and cheeses imported from Italy which make for the perfect first bites before moving on to the big guns. Those come in the form of rich plates of pasta and scorched, Neapolitan-style pies topped with everything from porchetta and ricotta to clams and garlic.
