Established in 2014 by two passionate entrepreneurs, Dolce Italia creates authentic Italian cuisine whilst staying true to their principles of using the freshest local ingredients.

Dolce Italia means “Sweet Italy” in Italian and is the brainchild of Manuela Prugnoli (Co-founder & Executive Chef) & Florence Gambarota (Co-founder & CEO).

Dolce Italia brings home-style Italian food made from all-natural ingredients that are sourced locally, prioritizing customer well-being.

From the inception of their venture, Manuela & Florence make fresh, tasty & healthy Mediterranean diet accessible to Sri Lanka by using ingredients that do not compromise health.

Mediterranean Diet, which was added by UNESCO to the list of intangible cultural heritage of humanity of Italy in 2013, requires a unique set of skills, traditions & ingredients that focus on the processing, cooking and consumption of food that have innumerably positive health benefits to those that incorporate this diet into their lifestyle.

At Dolce Italia, all the hallmarks of the Mediterranean Diet are in full flow, and have been taken a step further by incorporating local elements such as Kurakkan (Millet flour) in pizzas and croissants, while maintaining the authentic Italian taste.

No synthetic additives, artificial colors, flavors, preservatives or hydrogenated/ refined oils are used at Dolce Italia. We offer healthy alternatives and choices for individuals with distinctive diets such as dairy free, gluten free, Halal, vegan, low Sodium & sugar-free.

Being socially responsible is the biggest motivating factor for Florence & Manuela for what they do and this goes beyond their concept for Dolce Italia supporting community initiatives by collaborating with non-profit organizations to provide free training, food, accommodation to youth for underprivileged backgrounds & being coated to employing risk youth & differently-abled individuals.


Born in 1860, Riso Scotti has grown and evolved from an artisan mill into an industrial rice-processing company.

The history of this family business takes us to Pavia, a town in Lombardy wedged between the Po and the Ticino rivers.

Italy is the largest producer of rice in the European Union with over 90% being cultivated in Pavia.

The great Leonardo da Vinci is known for his contribution to the building of channels in the Po river plains in the 15th century.

Riso Scotti has extended its range of products and introduced an innovative range of vegetal drinks.
