Chef Rhoelle

Head Chef

Chef Rho is a master of fine Italian cuisine. A native San Diegan, Rhoelle began her culinary journey at the Art Institute in Mission Valley. After school, she joined the Dolce Pane E Vino team and quickly became the Sous Chef under Chef Jon Weimann. Her passion for Italian cuisine led her to Newport Coast to cook at the prestigious Pelican Hill Resort and its signature restaurant, Andrea. There, she trained under extremely talented Italian and French chefs, cooking for the elite of Orange County.  

When the call came to return to the Dolce team as Executive Chef for their second location, Dolce at the Highlands, she jumped at the chance to apply her skills at creating fresh, farm-to-table Italian food. Rhoelle is extremely happy to be back in her hometown and can’t wait for her guests to experience her take on neighborhood Italian dishes at Amici’s.
