Excellent pasta

Seven of us dined. Good salads. Average bruchetta. But the pasta - outstanding! The Americiana was superb- the sauce and spice with pancetta. The bolognese on spaghetti was delicioso. And the rotolini (eggplant) was wonderful. The recommended Tuscan wine was above average. The waiter was friendly... read more

What could have been a great evening out quickly turned into a very bad experience. This was my first and last time visiting this establishment. My rating for them is low due to poor service. One member of my party asked about the rate (20%) for the gratuity and was berated by an older, female manager. Another person in my... More

Y'all. I can't even with this place. It is AMAZING. REAL Italian food, REAL Italian sauces, everything is on point. They hand roll gnocchi and serve them only on Tuesday. Do yourself a favor, and go on Tuesday. You can check Groupon or Living Social- sometimes they have deals with them too!

One of the best Italian restaurants in the area. Everything is perfectly prepared. They are especially renowned for their homemade gnocchi.

We had a wonderful dinner at Dolce tonight. Our server Paul was very attentive and really knew his menu and wines. We ordered one of the specials and the pasta was freshly made. The tiramisu was divine! I definitely will return here.

A great authentic Italian restaurant. My wife and I head here for a nice glass of wine and indulge in dessert. The food is excellent and the ambiance matches. We have never had bad service and the chef can work with any suggestions. A tip would be to never pass up heir gnocchi. The perfect date night restaurant.

Went for gnocchi Tuesday a few weeks ago. It was our first time visiting the restaurant, and they treated us so well. They were doing some property manager-mandated repairs around the front door when we arrived, and someone met us outside and led us to the back entrance. It was not too busy, so they let us choose where we... More

Excellent service. Mom and daughter greet you at the door. Service is excellent. Wine selection great. Everything dish I've had there is top notch. Flavorful and great potions. Highly recommend Dolce. Can't say enough good things about it. A favorite in every way. Thank you for being here!

My wife and I have been to Dolce twice - the first time during the Queen's Feast. The quality of the food is excellent and the quantity of the food is generous. Wait staff are friendly and efficient. It is now on our list of places we will go to regularly.
