Best sushi in town

Although, we have eaten off their regular menu and food was okay....I usually only go to eat their sushi- We really like the "Nelson roll". I've eaten just about everything on their sushi menu! Service is slow but sushi is excellent.

No matter your attire you will fit right in. They atmosphere is calm and inviting. The dim lighting can make for a romantic evening. Prices are a little high. I would recommend going as a couple and not a family because of it. I found the restaurant to be extremely clean. It is newer construction and appears to be up-to-date.... More

Had dinner tonight with my daughter after Christmas shopping. I ordered the Tortellini Alla Nonna with the french onion soup & she got the eggplant rollatine with the tomato basil soup. Both of us were pleased with our dishes & our waitress, Blake. Have been going to Dolce since they opened, one of my favorite restaurants in Monroe!

This used to be our go-to place in Monroe. Menu is curtailed - that's OK but is now impossible to read. Pasta was over-cooked. Sauces were far less interesting than they used to be. Steak was as expected. Overall, very disappointing.

Had the lunch special and it was almost 20.00 but it was very good.....eggplant marsina or something like that. I was expecting it to be under 10 like the eggplant parmesan so I was a little surprised at my ticket....but it was really good!

One of the best Italian places around. Really good bread that you receive before your meal. Good deserts.

Dropped in for a midweek dinner. She ordered Shrimp Scampi, I the Veal Parmigian. Both dishes were excellent! Our server was prompt and very friendly - the food served quickly throughout the meal. We will return in the future!

I have to say I was a bit skeptical about the quality of sushi coming out of an Italian restaurant, but upon tasting it, it was actually pretty good! Not the best sushi I've ever had, but by far not the worst. Everything I ate was pretty tasty. I sampled some different appetizers and entrees (I visited on two occasions... More
