I'm a Missoula native, and I often meet friends for meals and conversation. Everything that I have eaten at Caffe Dolce has been prepared with freshness, generosity, and beauty. My favorites are the Heritage Bacon Lettuce and Tomato sandwich; the Hungarian soup, the breakfast Scramble, the Morning Glory muffins, and...the rich and smooth coffee! What's difficult to describe is the... More

I live out of town and don't make it to dinner very often, but a good friend moved close to Café Dolce and I was anxious to try a restaurant other than my usual haunts. 3 of us decided to take advantage of the first sun of the season and have dinner on the patio. We entered on the side... More

Very good overall, nice waitstaff and patio. We ate outside and enjoyed the residential neighborhood. The bread and charcuterie was excellent. The house salad very fresh and lightly dressed. My steak was incredibly tender, and large enough to share - which I did. Good thing because my other half's pasta with morels was good but in no way exceptional. Prices... More

Dear Reviewer: thank you for taking the time to comment, and I'm glad your overall experience was good. It pains me to think your pasta wasn't sensational, as that is usually our ace. We make all pasta fresh daily, and if we execute properly, our pasta should blow you away. Clearly this was not the case for you. Should you... More

We were directed to this place by friends in Helena and were totally amazed to find this quality in a town the size of Missoula, quite frankly. Went back the next morning for breakfast, quite surprised that it would be open that early. There is a great patio where we would have sat but the weather was threatening. With all... More

Dear Reviewer: Thank you for visiting Dolce, and for taking the time to comment. Our evening menu changes every ninety days, so perhaps you'll be able to try us in a different season someday. If there's anything we can ever do for you when you visit, or if you'd like to reserve a table in advance, please feel free to... More

I loved this place. It's in a residential neighborhood and simply beautiful. My grilled steak salad was phenomenal and the chocolate mousse delectable. Alas my husband didn't think it was as awesome as I did, so I can't give it five stars. But I thought it was great.

I don't want to sound like I'm not fond of kids, I am. Mine, mostly. But this place had six tables with babies or small children. For the price, it wasn't the atmosphere I was looking for. The waitress was less then a stellar value as well. I had a waiter here the 3 prior times I visited, but he... More

Dear Reviewer: Thank you for visiting Dolce; I'm so sorry that chaos dominated your dining experience. While Dolce welcomes families, I believe your experience is atypical. Likewise, I believe that a shortcoming in service is an exception to our standards. If you are interested in trying us again, entrees for two will be provided compliments of me. Please email me...

Cafe Dolce represents one persons dream of bringing a world class dining experience to Missoula. Peter Lambros is a person who will settle for nothing less than perfection in the food, ambience, and interaction among staff and customers. When you walk into Cafe Dolce you will note the high painted ceiling, the Venetian plastered walls, the tiled floor, and the... More

My wife and I have been to Cafe Dolce on Brooks on numerous occasions. Rating the food all depends on what you order. In my opinion, the pastas are way too spicy- and we like spicy food- and over salted. The pizza crusts, as well as the buns for their delicious lamb burger, are burnt. We have asked our waitperson...

Dear Reviewer: Thank you visiting Dolce on multiple occasions. I'm sorry that the seasoning of your food has been wide of your preference. We do in fact pursue food with assertive flavors, including a generous use of sea salt and in certain dishes heat. We generally don't brine - the salt you taste is upon the finishing of a dish....

We just returned from dinner at La Dolce. The food and service were excellent. The salad was fresh and tasty, my wife's morel pasta very flavorful, my spicy chorizo pizza hit the spot. We'd return when we are in Missoula.

I quickly read reviews in Missoula to choose our dinner location and caffe dolce was fantastic. My husband had the soup of the day to start (carrot ginger or something like that) and I had a salad with blackberries and both were great. For mains, my husband had the chicken and declared it was the best chicken he's ever had... More
