We had wanted to try Dolce for a while because I had noticed they make their own gnocchi one day a week. I saw a Groupon deal for them and grabbed it. We popped in on gnocchi night and had that and a glass of wine. Everything was delicious and the service was very good. There is patio seating and... More

Luisa, after eating in your restaurant since the day it opened, celebrating both of my children's birthdays yearly, tipping 25-40% every single time, sending friends, having showers and bringing clients...it all comes down to your rude daughter/manager. Our family has been loyal. We will miss Ken. He is awesome. We adored Petra and Carlos. Your daughter is rude and sucked... More

On Saturday, Sept. 27, night we ate on the patio. We have dined here many times. The food is good and portion sizes above average. The things that need improvement are the bread served before the meal (plain, cheap, little taste) and the service. Except for one or two waiters, the staff needs more training. Our waiter was not observant.... More

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

That's ok, I understand it's a small restaurant and a lot people and Tuesday night special....... The food was OK, and... 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 had 1 glass of wine and he had 2 glasses beer,...all for $70. I purchased the LivingSocial deal ($25 for $50 worth of food and drinks). So we roughly paid $45 + tip and... More
