Sicily is both the largest region of the modern state of Italy and the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. Its central location and natural resources ensured that it has been considered a crucial strategic location due in large part to its importance for Mediterranean trade routes. For example, the area was highly regarded as part of Magna Graecia, with Cicero describing Syracuse as the greatest and most beautiful city of all Ancient Greece.
Carlo and Filippo, managers of Dolce Vita and both Sicilian met in Leicester in 2013. Whilst working in the same restaurant, their bond grew, becoming something deeper than just a friendship. They both shared a dream of having a restaurant of their own.
Today Dolce Vita represents a platform of Sicilian cuisine in Melton Mowbray rural capital of food.
