Beverly Hills began as a modest village years ago and
today you can still feel its small town origins, even
though it has become a major tourist attraction and
business center for the entertainment industry. This
town lives up to its reputation as an area full of
designer retail stores and residential streets lined
with mansions and palm trees. Inside the commercial

Steeped in Hollywood history, La Dolce Vita features a relevant menu and some of LA's most inventive cocktail recipes. Having been open for 50+ years, La Dolce Vita has quite a storied past. Frank Sinatra held court here and the Reagans convened their Kitchen Cabinet, on numerous occasions, at table 14. New owner Alessandro Uzielli tapped in to his New York Upper East Side Restaurant roots to bring this unique night spot back to being the go to place it was when it opened in 1966. Just blocks from Rodeo Drive and the center of Beverly Hills, La Dolce Vita provides an exceptional location, unparalleled atmosphere, excellent Italian cuisine, and great wine and cocktail offerings.
