Little Italy's La Dolce Vita Brings Back Monday Night Opera


  • La Dolce Vita, Facebook

Need another reason to dine in Cleveland's Little Italy? Look no further than La Dolce Vita which recently re-infused its Monday night service with live opera performances. 

Tonight, as well as Dec. 7, Dec. 14, and Dec. 28, the Mayfield Road eatery will host Claire Connolly (vocalist), Brian Skoog (vocalist), and Adam Whiting (pianist) as they perform classic operas of both the Italian and non-Italian variety.

"The idea is to provide people with a song, then maybe another, and wait a bit and then do it again," La Dolce Vita owner Terry Tarantino told "We want to complement the dinners and give people a taste of these beautiful songs."

The cost? $40 per person with dinner or $15 per person without. Visit for additional info and the menu.
