Oh. My. Yum.

My daughter and I love gelato whenever we travel our first stop is to get gelato; knowing this a friend told me about Novo Dolce. Right here in our home town... We tried it. Seriously homemade goodness. Then I got a look at the menu and first chance I got we went to have dinner. Oh. My. Yum... read more

Novo Dulce is the new "hip" trendy place to see and be seen in Bowling Green, Kentucky. It regularly draws an upscale, business crowd to its crowded, pricey, noisy atmosphere. Many locals rave about it and the hosts and wait-staff are uniformly pleasant and efficient. The problem occurs when you order a $9.00 plate of pasta and the serving presented... More

Stopped in for lunch after a visit to the Corvette museum. Had the Tapas Trio starter (on special), the spicy Italian sandwich, the fish sandwich and various desserts. Everything was delicious, the service was great and the vibe is very chill. Highly recommend!

Recommended by a work colleague while on business in Bowling Green. Not the easiest to find but worth looking. Lobster mac and cheese was great! Chocolate martini was a fabulous dessert. I will be back on my next trip in.

Had lunch with my sister for her birthday. The menu had many options that made the decision something to contemplate. The tomato bisque soup was delicious. When ordering the Swiss and bleu, I assumed I was getting a burger with those toppings. It turned out to be a grilled cheese with those two cheeses which was okay. Perhaps I could... More

First time in the new location, nice urban decor and a varied menu. Some of the usual pub food with a little different mix than is usually found. Desserts are definitely worth saving room for.

On our top 5 list, another quality, consistent go-to for well prepared, fresh, creative offerings. My usual is the calamari, fried just right, wrapped in a light batter with a tangy aioli dip. Fish and chips are perfectly done, and fresh cut fries incl. sweet potato. Brie grilled cheese balanced with tart green apple slices, in a panini. Pasta salad... More

I would call this upscale pub food, if there is such a thing. The combinations of flavors and ingredients on the menu is sometimes surprising but always awesome. I have had several items and everything has been great. Don't miss the chocolate martini either...it's AMAZING! Love this place!

Novo Dolce is a nice, small restaurant in Bowling Green, Ky. Good food but hard to find. It is listed as being on the 31W By-Pass but is actually on Leaman Ave. After driving down the By-Pass we had to call some friends who directed us back to the location. It was a Saturday night and they do not take... More
