I had dinner with a friend who had purchased a Groupon. I ordered the Sorrento, which was pretty much shrimp alfredo with spinach and sundried tomatoes. My friend had the Cannelloni with chicken. We both really enjoyed the taste of our meals. The portion sizes were also really good. I appreciate an attentive waiter, however we could barely have our... More

The owner is truly Italian, so the dishes are really authentic. The pasta sauces is not overloaded with garlic, in fact there isn't garlic at all ! That's real italian! We came over here several times, the capresi salad is really nice and fresh. The gnocchi is amazing, but only served on Tuesdays. It is worth a trip in the... More

My husband and I went to Dolce this past weekend since I had purchased a Living Social coupon. We were thrilled with the food. We shared the mushroom appetizer that was so delicious. It was huge mushroom caps filled with ricotta cheese, spinach, and Italian sausage. I could have made a meal out of those. We then shared a salad... More

I've alway heard such good things about this restaurant, but I did not find that it lived up to the hype especially for the price of the meal. Like a similar reviewer, we had reservations and were about to be seated in a doorway on top of another couple. We asked if we could sit at a different table (and... More

I came here during Queen City Feast, and the amazing food and great waitstaff made me a repeat customer. The food is great and the serving size is the perfect amount. The wait staff is attentive without hoovering. This amazing restaurant seems to have a large amount of repeat and regular customers (the wait staff asked at least 3 groups... More
