An Awesome Experience!!

To piggyback on my brother's review (ShippeyD) owner, Carlo Mattiello and his staff (kudos to our servers Yanni and Chris) were/ARE truly awesome! Carlo was SOOO accommodating, patient, pleasant and respectful! He allowed us to virtually personalize the private space for our Mom's 70th birthday... read more

I live out of town and Carlo went above and beyond to help me plan this milestone event for a party of 30. From the ambiance, food selections (the meatballs were delicious!), presentation and level of hospitality the event was a success! Carlo, Christina and the entire staff were amazing from beginning to end! I highly recommend The Dove III... More

Wandering around historic Melbourne, we found Dove III. We got lucky and were seated right away even though they were quite busy. They really treat you right here- the chef started with a "sausage bun"- image a bun made of Italian bread and Italian sausage. We then had a delicious Italian soup as an appetizer. Next the chef surprised us... More

I keep forgetting to write a recent review on this restaurant. The Dove is one of my old time favorites. The amazing food and service is unchangeable. Last night we had the salmon with crab meat on top and as always we had to take most of it home. Because with the bread, the pasta fagioli and the sides it... More

My husband and I stopped in for lunch our first week in Melbourne. The atmosphere was very cozy and inviting, the food spectacular! Everyone was very friendly and helpful and as others have stated, the portions huge. The Dove III became a weekly visit for us. It is definitely a restaurant not to miss!

We popped in without a reservation on a Wednesday evening. No wait. The restaurant was cozy and warm on a cold evening. Server Yanni was super. Gave us the multitude of specials from memory, including exactly how everything was cooked. (Would have been nice if he had shared the prices.) A glass of house wine was huge. Delicious bread and...

Excellente food/price rate, wonderful atmosphere! All staff receives you with good manners and smiley friendly face. For those who love Italian food would be unforgivable not to give a try at the Grove. Beverages (excellent 100 yo cognac with the compliments of the house really gave a special touch at the end. Two persons with a bottle of good wine;... More

Our group of four had a lovely lunch at Dove Iii. We each ordered something different and each were very pleased but the prize goes to the fish of the day which my friend couldn't stop talking about. His wife took a bite and thoroughly agreed with him that it was the best fish they had ever eaten. My husband... More
