My husband and I decided to try The Dove III based on the reviews. It was a great choice for us. The server was very attentive. We started off with the stuffed portobello mushroom. It was stuffed with cheese and sausage and drizzled with scampi butter sauce. Very delicious. Pasta fagioli soup is served with all entrees. It was tasty... More

The food, service and atmosphere is what you would expect at a very high priced restaurant in NYC. At Dove III you get it all right at home for a reasonable price

This is truly one of the most amazing restaurants in our area. Owned by an incredible family. It's such an amazing atmosphere and I have NEVER had a bad experience. The food and wine is amazing. Recently has redone the wine list-Amarone is incredible. You will not be disappointed!

The ambiance was lovely. The waiter was attentive and made suggestions and recommendations. The food was superb. The litle "extras" they serviced like limoncello and cookies made the meal unforgetable. I recommend this reatsurant to everyone who is looking for a great dinner.

The Dove when it was in Satellite Beach was always one of my favorite dinning restaurants and I would always eat there twice a week. I have just moved back to Brevard County and found the same family has opened an amazing charming Italian cuisine called The Dove 3 in downtown Melbourne. I tried it for lunch on Monday, it... More

The vibe of the restaurant is pure Italy. Unlike some restaurants which advertise themselves as Italian, when you walk in here, you feel like you're in Italy. Food and service were excellent with complementary limoncello and a pasta amuse bouche.

During a wonderful visit to historic downtown Melbourne, we stopped for lunch at The Dove III. The service was top-notch. The bread and salads were really good. The food was delicious and hot. My husband chose a lunch special - his giant meatball was sooo yummy, and the pasta and sauce were very good! I had the shrimp fradiavolo -... More

This iteration of The Dove restaurant has been in downtown Melbourne for several years but today was my first visit. The old Dove (Satellite Beach) had been a favorite for special occasions. I was at The Dove III today with four book-club friends and all of us loved everything about the experience. Nicely set tables, pleasant decor, good service, and... More
