This is THE BEST restaurant!!!! Whether it be for a special occasion, a casual lunch or their wine tasting dinner you will NOT be disappointed. The food is outstanding, the service impeccable (we usually request Roberto). The owner, Carlo is always available to oversee the operation and service stopping by your table to make sure you are totally satisfied which... More

Had the chicken marsala which had a wonderful rich sauce and enough chicken for 3 meals. Also tried the chocolate cake for dessert which was absolutely decadent! Will definitely visit again.

This place just feels warm and inviting with fresh white linen, prompt service, great bloody marys and superb food. The chicken picatta is always my favorite while the salmon appetizer was also hit. I like the chef and the owner is always ready to assist in selection.

Was in town for business and found this restaurant just walking downtown. Service was impeccable upon walking in the door. Ordered the meatball appetizer and mussels marinara as my entree. Everything was amazing and the homemade limoncello was the icing on the cannoli!! :) Can't wait to go back!

This is a busy restaurant for a good reason - the dishes are fresh, authentic and very flavorful. The staff is very friendly. The dishes are great. For example, their take on Veal Parmesan is superb, with fresh sauce and excellent pasta added to a tender veal cutlet. Everything about this spot is fresh, tasty and enjoyable.

The meal at the Dove was the very best meal we have had in years. Four years ago we vacationed in Italy enjoying wonderful food. The Dove was on par with those restaurants. The atmosphere was friendly and romantic.

Friends invited us out for dinner, so this was their choice of restaraunt, the service was impeccable, the menu was plentiful, and the added extra ( included in the price of the entree) were delightful. I ordered the peppered medallions of beef, served with Jasmine rice and flavorful broccoli. Preceding this came a selection of hot breads, a homemade pork... More

We went for dinner on our last night in town on Friday 10/3/14 after viewing other reviews on Tripadvisor. The moment we walked in we were greeted by the hostess who was very personable and took our table preference. Our waiter Mike was also very personable and informative, he had full knowledge of the menu and was able to make... More

Wife and I visited Dove III for a late lunch and were fortunate to have a nice window table immediately available. Very nice and clean dining room with crisp white table clothes and a server on the spot to take orders for wine or bloody marys. Warm fresh bread served quickly along with our drinks. I ordered the chicken picatta... More

Was spoiled by the wonderful food and service when the Dove was on beachside. Don't know what happened when they re-opened in downtown Melbourne. I know other people that just love it but my last experience was probably just that, my last experience. Went about 6 months ago and had a bad experience, the main plus was that they still... More
