CARROLLWOOD — For over a year and a half, Luis Boza had his sights set on opening a new restaurant in Carrollwood's Grand Plaza.
When the space he wanted suddenly became available, he was thrilled to finally open Dolce Enigma earlier this month.
"It's a prime location," said Boza, the owner. "The community is great. I love it."
Dolce Enigma offers authentic European foods such as Liège waffles, crepes and Italian gelato. Boza said that he wanted to offer his customers real Italian gelato, which has a certain texture and flavor. Another specialty he offers is Italian coffee and specialty coffee drinks. To achieve the proper taste of Italian coffee, he installed a special water filtration system.
"Everything we do, we have a lot of passion into it," Boza said. "We are aiming for the best."
The menu at Dolce Enigma also includes paninis. Boza spent months traveling around the United States tasting paninis and speaking to chefs from different cities.
Dolce Enigma is located at 14351 N Dale Mabry Highway. It is open 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturdays, and 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sundays. For more information, call 813-374-2752, or visit facebook.com/dolceenigmagelateria.
