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!

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.

Had an evening to spend in Old Downtown Melbourne. The food was excellent but the servings were so large that we should have shared the main course. Prompt service with perfect timing between courses. The waiter came to our table and placed pasta soup for us. I commented, "We did not order soup". We were then informed that the soup... More
