Crosspudlains flocked to a party last night to celebrate the launch of a new local Italian restaurant.
The owners of La Dolce Vita laid on free tasters of pizza, focaccia, bruschetta and a selection of pastries, all washed down with Italian wine.
La Dolce Vita is based in the old A’Villa Caruso unit on Sandygate Road. The restaurant has been completely redecorated with clean white walls and a small drinks bar in the back corner.
It is a family-run affair, with Luciana and Gianpaolo preparing the food and Nirvana managing the restaurant with her husband Matthew.
The pizzeria is now open for bookings on 0114 266 9811.
