lunch was wonderful to say the least. A true gem. Italian food at its best. Vacationing in Italy last year enabled me to critique the menu fairly. It was true Italian. I felt we were dining in Rome again. I must say this will be one of our favorite places in Brevard County, a place we will bring visitors. We... More

Having just moved to Florida from CT in December we are always looking to find great new restaurants. My hairdresser had mentioned the Dove in Melbourne was excellent and that I needed to try it out. Unfortunately they are only open for lunch during the week. My sister and I decided to give it a try since we were in... More

The Dove III is one of my favorite places to eat. It is hidden in old downtown Melbourne. The restaurant is family owned which is part of what appeals to me. The food is excellent....my favorite is the beef au puave. The service is wonderful....my favorite is Jeffrey. Try them out....you won't be sorry.

This is without a shadow of doubt the best Italian Restaurant in all of Brevard County. The service and food are of a five star caliber and the atmosphere is of equal proportion. Carlo the proprietor is always on hand to answer any questions you may have and his staff are equally accommodating. I could go on and on but... More

Stopped by here for dinner tonight to try something new. Hubby and I were extremely impressed. It's an Italian place, but the menu is Neopolitan -- not just your usual pasta and pizza dishes. They have a nice wine list and the prices were reasonable -- we chose the Charles Krug Pinot Noir (Napa) for $39, which wasn't a bad... More

We eat here often as a couple, family, and with friends. This is a well run restaurant with family staff in the kitchen and dining room. The menu is Italian with daily specials. There is a good wine list and moderate priced good tasting house wine + full bar. Make a reservation for weekend dining. Some of our favorites are... More

Carlo and his entire family pour their hearts, souls, and generations of true Italian cooking into this incredible family owned/operated restaurant. The atmosphere is perfect for lunch and dinner, romantic, friends, business, or a quiet solo meal!

We we're looking for a nice classy place for our anniversary dinner, which is hard to find in this area. We found it right here at Dove III. Very nice atmosphere - white tablecloths and candle light. The food was very good and not too expensive. The staff was all very nice and professional and our waiter was exceptional. We'll... More
