A must try!!

Best Italian I've had in a long time!!! I tried it based on reviews from this site and it is definitely a gem!! Don't judge a book by its cover bc the outside of the restaurant doesn't look great but the food was amazing!!! Can't wait to go back.

Try the eastern European dishes. Amazing!!! Julia knows her way around a kitchen. We have been there two times and are planning repeat visits. It's very small, but so worth trying. Delicious rolls come with the dinners, as does salad. The European choices are marvelous...so flavorful. And then the surprise of the sweet fried dough for dessert (included). Oh my.

We only found this via Trip Advisor and GPS, lucky for us. When you are travelling it is sometimes hard to find the local "gems" in any given nightly stop. Trip advisor came through this time. This is a small (9 tables) take out or eat in restaurant served by the owner. Both the service and the food was great,... More

We have loved this restaurant for years. Julia, chief chef, is warm and welcoming--and she is a fabulous cook. Menu items are fresh and generous. It is BYOB. They now take credit cards, but we loved and supported this restaurant during the cash-only times because the food and service was so good. Highly recommended.

We decided to try Dolce after reading the other reviews. We absolutely enjoyed the food, atmosphere, and service. The bread is homemade, the side salads are generous in size and include a good variety of vegetables on them with mozzarella. The salads as an entree are big enough for two people. The pizza is fresh and delicious. The Chicken Cacciatore... More

This small restaurant packs a POW. The Eastern European food is excellent and the spaghetti pretty awesome too. You will have to bring you own wine; they will provide the glasses and opener. Julia will make you feel at home.

Stopped in due to the reviews on tripadvisor. They had a 2 slice pizza deal for $5. If you like NY style pizza as we do, as we are originally from NY, you will not like this pizza. The sauce tasted as if it was directly from the can and rest of it was just OK. I had the italian... More

It is an unusual combo, but my husband was able to get stromboli (the menu is mostly Italian), and I got very good stuffed cabbage leaves (from the small Eastern European part of the menu).

After many hours on the road, we found this restaurant on Yelp. It didn't appear like much from the outside. It looked small, but the parking lot was packed. We parked across the street and went in looking for pizza. We found a very quaint restaurant with a very colorful woman running the kitchen. She appeared to be totally enjoying... More
