About the restaurant
Rumours Wine Bar was brought to life from a vision that began back in 2019 in our living room. Dana had recently resigned from her Wine Sales position and wasn’t sure what she wanted to do next. She had always dreamed of opening her own Wine bar so we created our logo, our name, and our brand and simply followed our heart. We opened as a retail store in January 2020 and pivoted when the Pandemic started by creating an online store and offering curbside pick-up and delivery. In September 2020, we passed our final inspections and received our beer and wine license for “on-premise” consumption as well as a restaurant license. We have not slowed down since. We have won numerous awards from our local community including 2022 and 2023 "Best Local Cheers Bar." Our mission at Rumours Wine Bar is to simply embrace intellectual stimulation linked to wine in a relaxed and friendly environment.

Absolute gem of a place. Food is superb. While perusing the menu, a bread service was brought to the table with balsamic, evoo and cracked pepper. The bread was a basic looking flatbread but omg did it impress on first bite. I could eat that everyday and be totally content. Hubs and I had the scallop appetizer and were blown away. The scallops are wrapped in prosciutto and pan seared to perfection. The flavor is the right combination of salty and sweet. We also had the artichoke app, mussels and artichoke pasta dish. Everything that came to the table was outstanding. Found our new date night spot close to home!!!

We are a family with a rich Thai heritage that has been passed down for generations. Our love for Thai food and culture inspired us to create a fusion of traditional Thai dishes with a modern twist.

Our menu features an array of dishes that combine Thai spices and flavors with other cuisines. Our goal is to showcase the beauty and complexity of Thai cuisine while infusing it with modern and creative flavors. We are excited to share our passion for food with you and hope you enjoy our unique fusion creations.

We eat out all the time and this is the best restaurant we’ve been to in a long time. Paul’s crabcake was all crab and the potato crusted sweet potato crusted salmon was unbelievable. Affordable and fantastic. Must go.

Excellent food and service. Beautiful place to lunch with ladies. I went with my husband who was very well pleased with his salmon tabouleh salad and bread pudding. The soup of the day was French onion soup which was delicious. Curried chicken on toast was flavorful with just the right side salad. Will go back. For us it is the best place to lunch in the mall. It was so pleasant.

About the restaurant
Dolce Italia was established in 2010 by Tiziana Di Costanzo who came from Ischia, an island in the Gulf of Naples. Using a combination of classic Italian dishes, family recipes passed down for generations, and warm hospitality, Dolce Italia has built a reputation in Sarasota as a destination for anyone seeking great food and ambiance. In 2015 Matthew joined as manager of the front of house and is now a managing partner of Dolce Italia. The kitchen staff trained by Tiziana from the beginning are still with the restaurant with Maria being the capocuoco.
Some of the specialities Dolce Italia has become famous for are the Napoletan Eggplant- a tender sautee eggplant with fresh tomatoes crowned with ricotte, the Trenne Dolce Italia- the signature pasta dish with creamy tomato sauce, fresh tomatoes, mozzarella, and mushroom.

Third time dining at dolce italia. It’s a small restaurant with few tables that were all full which provided a lively atmosphere the round table made it easy for our party of six to hear one another the wine list is limited but sufficient. We shared a few appetizers and a salad. I had the roasted red peppers and it was the perfect start for a hearty pasta entree. I had the house pasta and it was delicious the great meal is accompanied by even better service. The people are helpful and the group of servers with a lot of personality work as a team. Look forward to our next visit

Amazing food prepared creatively by Chef Linus. We loved the Sea Bass served over a pesto risotto. He truly cared about our experience as he came out several times during our dinner service to see how we were enjoying our meal. Yvonne, who hosts the front of the house, was charming and made us feel very much at home. Together, they both have us looking forward to our next visit in the near future.

We’ll definitely be back! Our server (Paul) was terrific and thoroughly enjoyed the presentation and flavors of the beet salad, the beef tartare and the lobster salad. Wonderful wine selection…
