Dolce And Salato (sweet and salty in Italian)
is a restaurant in Naples, FL that serves Italian Cuisine. I had not eaten there for almost 3 years. Remembering how good it was, I was happy when my dining companion (DC) that day decided to meet me for lunch.
Dolce and Salato has a very pleasant indoor dining area
with some of the nicest Parquet flooring of any restaurant in the area.
The restaurant also has a lovely outdoor dining area,
which is where DC and i decided to have lunch.
After being brought some really good Focaccia bread, some with olive spread,
DC and I split a starter of beef Carpaccio.
Our dish was served with mixed greens, shaved Grana Padano cheese, and Truffle Oil. This was absolutely delicious, and one of the best plates of carpaccio I have ever had.
I love goat cheese and beets, it's just something about that combination, so i ordered the baby spinach salad.
Baby spinach was circled by rounds of beets topped with dollops of Chevre cheese and topped with walnuts and Balsamic Glaze. This is a very light dish and just right for me that day.
DC had the tuna sandwich as a salad.
Tuna, capers, tomatoes, red onions celery carrots, olives, fresh basil and topped with balsamic glaze. DC really seemed to enjoy the salad.
On the way out of the restaurant from settling the bill I looked over at one of the counters and realized why the restaurant is named as it is, for it's sweet and salty snacks.
This is a very pleasant place to have lunch with very good food and good service. I think DC would second me on that. I will definitely be back for a return visit, and it will not be 3 years until the next one!
That's that for another post on forks.
