Randy Loren's Dolce Vita
was started by Randy Loren on Valentine's
of 2009. With much thought and planning he decided to open the
restaurant in his hometown of Schenectady, NY. He completely renovated and
designed the building with his daughter Amanda. His main goal was to give the
community an era of service and style that has been forgotten. He centers the
design of the restaurant around a White Baby Grand Piano
Trademark, with a Las Vegas
flavor and unique designs seen no where else in
the region. Whether you are looking for a fun night out, or a nice meal with
the family we provide both types of experiences.
Our specialty is providing every guest with fresh, homemade,
cooked to order authentic Italian/American cuisine. The recipe for our pasta sauce
has been passed down through the family from Randy 's mother Amelia. Specialty
Entrees such as the Chicken or Veal Dolce Vita have been created and can only
be found at Randy Loren's Dolce Vita. All ingredients are provided from local
resources and every meal is prepared on premises, never frozen in a bag. The
quality of the food we present is unsurpassed by local chain restaurants and
AFFORDABLE to EVERYONE.
The entire staff along with the owner work together as a team to provide the
finest in service, quality, presentation, and atmosphere. We
do everything in our power to make your experience a memorable one.
That is the Definition of Dolce Vita ( Sweet Life ) A Place Where One Can
Receive Joy & Fulfillment, that is OUR MISSION STATEMENT!
Randy Loren feels as if he has been brought to this area to serve the
community and this is the reason why the Dolce Vita was opened. His main goal
is to provide an upscale dining experience with affordable pricing for
One example of how we fulfill our mission statement is the owner Randy Loren
approaches all guests (literally every table) while dining to ensure
exceptional quality and satisfaction have been achieved.
We lost our lease at our previous location of over three years and a major
Investment. But we were blessed to acquire a new location immediately located
only 1/2 mile from the previous location. A True Godsend, However financially
we have exhausted our resources from the move and expenses of fees, licenses,
renovations and need funds necessary to complete the renovation and retro fit
of the new building, and that is why this web site has been created, to allow
all our Faithful Patrons, Friends & Family to support us and capture a
piece of the Dolce Vita by pledging whatever is possible, we have listed the
pledge amounts from $1 to $2000, and we offer rewards for your Pledges &
Our expected date to open is on Valentine's Day. In order to fulfill this
goal we need your help to continue with our venture of serving the community.
Your contributions to funding our project will allow us to turn our new
location into the permanent home of Randy Loren's Dolce Vita.
