After a wonderful dining experience last March we visited The Dove 111 last week to celebrate a friend's birthday. Our wive's filet mignon and flounder special were perfectly cooked but the highlight of our meal was the veal parm special, a wonderful piece of veal stuffed sausage and salami with mozzarella and what had to be a fantastic selection of...

The management was very helpful in carrying out our surprise for the birthday girl. The food was outstanding. Three... More

The waiter was friendly, the bread basket was yummy, delicious wine and food that was fresh and delicious. One of us had lasagne, and... More

The Dove III in downtown Melbourne is our destination for special celebrations or just a nice, quiet dinner. The Menu has top quality popular Italian entrees. But if you crave for something special and not Italian, and not on the Menu, just call ahead Carlo the owner/manager. It will be waiting for your enjoyment. The Dove also offers a good... More

We are visiting in the Melbourne area to attend some games at the Nationals training camp. We decided to give Dove III a try after reading favorable reviews on TA. The best way to describe our hole experience is just "oh, wow!" This little family owned restaurant charmed our socks off! It is a small, but well arranged, classy but... More

Dove III serves up elegant Italian food with an atmosphere appropriate for a special occasion or celebration. We dined on a busy Saturday night with a reservation and were seated immediately at a great table. Our server quickly arrived with a basket of delicious sausage-filled hot rolls and took our drink orders. The shrimp scampi was possibly the best I've... More

This restaurant was very crowded on a week night. Since we did not have reservations we had to wait about 45 minutes. Service was good but very slow.......on purpose. They don't want to rush you. The meal included a number of freebies: the chef's mother's pasta fagioli, a sausage roll, dessert cookies, a house-made lemonocello, and anisette at the end... More
