Consistently great food and service!

A must have is the Avocado and Shrimp salad and/or the meatball appetizer, (which is the size of a softball). The Dove offers very generous portions, amazingly fresh... read more

Perfect spot for lunch or dinner. Vast menu along with daily specials always makes it difficult to decide what to order! A must have is the Avocado and Shrimp salad and/or the meatball appetizer, (which is the size of a softball). The Dove offers very generous portions, amazingly fresh ingredients, friendly service and an all around great dining experience.

For certain, one of the best Italian restaurants on the Space Coast. I had the chicken parmigiana dinner and it was outstanding. I got to try a little eggplant parm and that was melt in your mouth excellent. The sauce is thick and tasty, the service professional and timely, and the restaurant nicely attired. If you're near Melbourne, and in... More

A must go while here or if you live here. Best fine dining in the county. Not too dressy, not too casual. The employees always make you feel like family. Traditionally Italian but they have something for everyone. You will not be disappointed!

What a delightful treat we enjoyed for lunch today. My husband had fettuccine in red clam sauce and I enjoyed a wonderful salad, the best clam chowder, and home baked bread. The food was just excellent and the waiter did a top notch job taking care of us. If you are in historic downtown Melbourne, don't pass this one by----you'll... More

We visited The Dove lll for a late lunch while shopping in the historic area of Melbourne. The lunch menu was reasonably priced and had many selections and included soup or salad.. They also offer daily specials and I opted for one of them (Flounder Piccata). The taste was exquisite and the portion size was large. After our first course... More

The Dove is a local tradition - good food, good service, generally reliable for a relaxing night out with friends or couples. The space is not large, creating a sense of intimacy despite the fact that tables are often filled. Its location in downtown historic Melbourne invites a longer evening in town - a show, an after dinner drink or... More

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
