La Vita Dolce Soft Opening On for Tomorrow

Shelves are being stocked in preparation; entertainment license is on the agenda

Todd Arsenault won’t let a little snow deter him from a soft launch of his eagerly awaited new bakery, deli and café La Vita Dolce.

“We’re on,” said Arsenault, who was working overtime last night with family and friends to stock shelves and prepare for one of the most anticipated Tewksbury business openings in recent memory.

Arsenault and his team have completely transformed the former Santander Bank at 1866 Main St. with high-end finishes and a gleaming kitchen. The business was granted a full liquor license, though that service won’t be up and running at the soft opening.

On Tuesday, Arsenault will appear in front of the Select Board to request an entertainment license for live, acoustic and recorded music; a DJ with amplifier; and televised programming. He also promises comedy shows in the future. The hours requested for entertainment on the outdoor patio, once the weather cooperates, would be from noon to 9:00 p.m. Indoors, patrons can hear Italian music and other entertainment from 6:00 a.m. to midnight daily.
