Our Story

Welcome To Dolce Italia

Authentic Italian Food In Sarasota

The origin of Dolce Italia comes from Ischia, an island in the Gulf of Napoli in Italia. Tiziana Di Costanzo came to the USA from Ischia and started Dolce Italia in 2010. She brought both traditional authentic Italian food as well as family recipes combined with her love for life. A staff was assembled that persists to this day.

I am excited to share this year with you!
