CAFFE DOLCE VITA on Federal Hill

Whether you are looking for the perfect place to spend an afternoon sampling the finest Italian desserts, enjoying a great sandwich or just out for drinks, at Dolce Vita you will be reacquainted with the "sweet life".

Enjoy fabulous outdoor - alfresco - dining on beautiful DePasquale Plaza and sooth your soul with the latest in contemporary Italian music as you capture all the spirit and romance of Rome's finest cafes. Every evening at 7:00 pm enjoy live music by the outdoor fountain for your listening and dancing pleasure.




"Caffe Dolce Vita is the realization of a young Italian man who felt there was a need for an authentic Italian caffe in Providence. Gianfranco Marrocco (Gian)was born in Cassino, Italy and has spent many years in both countries; therefore he has managed to recreate the perfect ambience for its clientele. The aroma of espresso pervades beautiful DePasquale Plaza which evokes the wonderful memories of sitting at an outdoor caffe in Rome. The pastries or "dolci" are imported directly from Milan. The Coppa Dolce Vita and Frutta di Bosco are only two of the luscious desserts that await you. Add to this authentic "gelatti" and Italian music and I defy anyone to feel like they are in the United States!"

    I purchased a groupon. Anyone want to split it with me?

      For those of you who have a groupon, you can only use one per table, so you have to sit at a separate table.

    before you guys go too crazy with the groupons, you can only use one per table. We can split up and sit at different tables or not, post your thoughts.

    I would be more than happy to split a Groupon with someone or to buy my own and split. anyone interested?

      Yes it has to be used for two or more. Are they going to allow a group reservation to use more than one Groupon? Some restaurants don't allow using more than one per party/group.

      July 10, 2014

    • Deborah (a.k.a. K.

      I will check, might have to split into several tables anyway.
