What a treat to find Caffe Dolce in Missoula! We had dinner after eating all day it seemed. The staff was gracious and never chafed at our orders which varied between an appetizer as entree to a full course dinner. The house red was delicious, with a spicy nose and delicate palate. Duck ragout with house made pappardelle was excellent.... More

As a long-time patron of Caffe Dolce, I wanted to take a moment to emphasize how lucky we are to have such a wonderful place to dine, grab a coffee and treat, study, meet-up with friends, and visit with family. The atmosphere is welcoming and the food is delicious. Whether you are a Missoula resident or a first-time visitor, there... More

Last Tuesday night I met friends at Caffe Dolce for a little Book Club. The sun was setting, the temperature was perfect and we were able to sit outside (in early October!). The ambiance was magical, the wine (which was recommended by the server) was divine, and our diners were perfect. We shared a meat and cheese plate and each... More

We had a great meal after the Grizz game. The house red was very nice and complemented our meal. We weren't real hungry so we started with the Penn Cove clams. Cooked just right! A nice spice to the broth that we soaked up with bread. Then a wonderful caprese salad followed by their panchetta, fig and arugula pizza. The... More

By far the absolute best food in Missoula. The menu is creative, eclectic and always changing. The food is prepared from scratch and the chef is masterful. The wine selection is fantastic. We come back again and again, and are never disappointed.

Dear Reviewer: Thank you for your nice words for Caffe Dolce - and for taking the time to post on TripAdvisor. We appreciate it greatly. Have you had a chance to try the fall menu? It began last week, and Chef Andrew's got some cool new twists. Consider the roasted beat / pear salad, the duck ragu, the mussel pappardelle,... More

You must have a coffee, lunch or dinner. The building is amazing. The attention to architectural detail, the mural on the ceiling and the tile floors. A place you would find in Italy, right here in missoula.

Caffe Dolce is a nice spot to stop by, order a bite to eat, sit outdoors and chat.It is rather scenic and very relaxing.The food is home-made, fresh salads, bread and soups are delicious and good treats follow the main meal. The indoor atmosphere is a bit cavernous - very high painted Italian ceilings lovely to look at, but the... More

I had Sunday lunch: the scramble special with wild mushrooms and goat cheese - excellent. The extensive, eclectic wine list was another pleasant surprise. Prices per bottle were very reasonable. The server made a mistake on my bill, even though the error was in my favor, many cashiers would be defensive. In this case, she deducted the items as a... More
