Cafe Dolce is a throwback to one of the village's longest-standing Italian bakeries.

"Besides the bar, I kept it exactly like Artuso," Fata said of the eatery at 270 Mamaroneck Ave., which opened in August. "So many people asked for their product, I couldn't say no."

Fata, who used to own Pizza Factory in Greenwich, Connecticut, comes from a family of cooks with roots in the Bronx. His uncle owned an Italian cafe in Morris Park in the borough.
