Dolce Mare, located in the Ocean Casino Resort is excellent! I have been there multiple times and hope to go back again and again. It is a fine dining modern Italian restaurant in Atlantic City and has prices to go along with that. Unlike some other restaurants in Atlantic City, I believe it is priced reasonably for what you get.
I recently visited the newest restaurant in the Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian, Mercato della Pescheria. The restaurant is located in St. Mark’s square replacing upscale Italian restaurant Postrio. The layout of Mercato della Pescheria is similar to Postrio with an indoor and “outdoor” table configuration. The outdoor seats are inside the casino under the painted sky ceiling.
