Abe Aguirre  - OWNER / CHEF


Abraham M Aguirre Jr., owner of La Dolce Vita Catering & Events in Greenville South Carolina, grew up among the big city lights and diverse cuisine scene of Chicago. He was trained in Classic Southern Italian Cooking from the young age of 13 under the guidance of his tight knit family. They instilled a strong sense of community and a passion for using food to gather people together to savor beautiful notes of flavor and cherish their time together. 

As time passed, Abe gained experience as a chef and also experience in all facets of the industry across restaurant ownership (Abbondanza Italian Restaurant Greenville, SC), bar, and management operations. He has spent time in various regions of the U.S. to expand his palate and further develop the depth of his menus. This has equipped him to deliver rich flavor profiles across different cultural influences. His signature specialty continues to be fresh, classic Southern Italian Cooking.   

Abe and his family are excited about being back and reconnecting in Greenville South Carolina. He and his wife look forward to establishing roots and have the goal of opening a Latin Kitchen & Italian Steak House Restaurant.  Abe’s vision for La Dolce Vita Catering & Events is to keep the tradition of his rich cultural heritage going strong and to gather and delight the Upstate community with memorable culinary experiences that will leave a lasting impression!



We're carrying forward a legacy of love and a celebration of food expressed throughout generations of family.

We call it "The Sweet Life", which translates in Italian to our business name, La Dolce Vita.

We're overjoyed to welcome you into many different opportunities to experience and savor this sweet life legacy also!
