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!

Let's start off with the good, the food is good, seasoned well, our waiter was excellent. The house salad dressing was excellent, the pasta e fagioli had great flavor although extremely pasty and heavy. It is more like glue than soup, but it is tasty glue. I ordered fish, it was fresh, but covered in parmesan cheese which is great... More

We were referred to The Dove by the B&B staff. We made reservations on Saturday night. Great atmosphere. Good wait staff. Food was delicate, authentic and beyond our expectations. Do not miss this gem in downtown Melbourne.

Very friendly staff here. It's a little on the expensive side but you do get a lot of food. Their soups are excellent. Good pasta dishes too.
