My husband, adult son and I had a wonderful experience here from start to finish. We were welcomed in by the owner and promptly seated at a table set with crisp white linens. Our waitress, Dianne, was very knowledgeable and explained the specials and answered our questions about the menu. We all decided on the lunch special ($10) which was... More

My wife and I have been for a few date night dinners. The food is very good with a nice atmosphere. They also have very good service. With the location in down town Melbourne it is easy to move to a nice place for after hour drinks.

We had visitors from Ireland and England and we decided to take them out for what we thought was an enjoyable dinner evening. We made reservations and arrived on time. Opera/Italian music was BLARING outside the building and not much quieter inside. It was very difficult to hold a conversation. We were seated promptly, but then rushed to give a... More

I have been to this restaurant many times and realized I have never posted a review! Last night we attended a birthday dinner for a close friend . I have never been disappointed in anything I have tried over the years. Their avocado salad appetizer is awesome. It fluctuates from being paired with lobster or shrimp. The chateaubriand for two...

Stopped off inMelbourne on a drive up the coast with the destination be further north. Saw the Dove 111 on the corner and it looked nice so we decided to give it a try. Walking in we were greeted at the door by a server/ host. We were seated to a table and introduced to our waiter who promptly took... More

My husband and I ate here and it was nice, but not as good as reviews lead us to believe. I had the chicken picatta, it was tasty, but not the best I have ever had. My husband had the shrimp scampi and thought it was delicious, but really filling. I wish I had tried the carbonara instead.

We had dinner at The Dove III with another couple, dinner was amazing, having a complementary appetizer and homemade pasta fagoli was a nice treat. Our server seemed pre-occupied, however the young man who was refilling beverages was on top of things, he showed concern when we had been waiting a little for our waiter. I understand he (the helper,... More

Lived in Melbourne the past 4 years and just discovered this place while searching for Italian fare. The atmosphere and food were top notch. They offer a large wine list, which we opted for the house Merlot. Every guest gets a lovely bread basket, homemade sausage filled garlic knots and a hot bowl of house soup ( pasta fagiole) before...

Grandpa was in town so we took him to dinner with my 8 & 6 yr olds and wife. The owner greeted us, the waiter introduced himself and we were seated promptly. In addition to the extensive menu, there were several delicious sounding specials. This was my third time here and I was glad I chose this restaurant for a... More
