Review: Dolce Vita

Dolce Vita ExteriorOn our last edition of “Write the Caption,” we showed the picture of this guy (see right.) The winner of caption challenge is Pam with:

Sir, may I take your umbrella?

Well, this guy can be found outside one of my favorite spots in all of Boston’s North End, Dolce Vita (which means the “sweet life.”) Owner Franco Graceffa welcomes everyone into his home for an unforgettable meal.

With so many restaurants claiming they are the best in this little neighborhood, Dolce Vita is our go-to place when we want to savor a hearty Italian meal. Franco does just about everything at the restaurant from seating you to taking your order. If you don’t see something you like on the menu, he’ll work with you to create something that you will love.

Taking a Little Breather

Dear friends,

I want to take this opportunity to, first, thank you for continuing to visit my blog. This has truly been an interesting endeavor that has also proved to be a learning experience and, at times, a struggle. My goal when I first started writing last June was to bring new content to you at least several times each week. Unfortunately, recently I have not been able to live up to those expectations due to some personal health concerns. Please do not worry about me!

It has been a tough decision to make but I have decided to take a short hiatus from the rigorous schedule of blogging. I have been taking the last few weeks to recharge my batteries and refresh my mindset toward the blog. I want to be able to bring you new, exciting content about food for a long time and feel that this is a necessary break for both my personal health and the health of the blog’s future.

In the coming days and weeks, you’ll still see posts. Starting next week, we will have a series from the fabulous AJ Wolfe at DisneyFoodBlog.com. AJ takes us behind the food on Disney Cruise Line’s new ship – the Disney Dream, which Brett and I will set sail on in early December. AJ’s series marks the 200-day mark to our embarkation date. We will also have some planning articles on making those Disney ADRs (advanced dining reservations), as our 180-day mark makes its way. Also coming up from the Boston realm, we have reviews of some North End staples: Dolce Vita and Mike’s Pastries.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my ramblings and being supportive of this writing experiment. I want to continue to bring you fun photos, videos, reviews and recipes to enjoy with your family for a long time into the future.
