“David Rocco’s Dolce Vita” is our guide to all things Italian. As always, the starting point is food. Italian cooking is all about the simple things, and how, if you learn to do these simple things well, life is that much better. I say this all the time and believe it absolutely: you don't need a cooking diploma to make fantastic Italian dishes.
The show is also about how food brings friends and family together.
Since the show began, we've been based in Florence. Season one and most of season two were all about beautiful Florence, Firenze, from the sophisticated cafes and restaurants to the markets, some of the great characters who work in the food sector, and of course friends and family. At the end of season two, we went south to the legendary Amalfi coast, famous for its lemon groves. Last season we celebrated spring in Florence and then traveled to Sicily where we explored the famous Palermo markets, met some incredible people in the wine, agriculture and food sectors, and then traveled back to Amalfi with a stop in the gorgeous resort town of Ischia.
