Me and my friend went on Tuesday 6/24 sat inside next to the entrance. We were glad we made reservation and skipped the 40 mins wait. We sat down and waited about 40-50 mins when our food were ready. 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

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

I dropped by once for an evening meal in September, and had a superb fish entree. The restaurant was extrememly busy and I got the last table, (outdoors), but the weather was mild and it was actually quite lovely. The waitstaff were very attentive and pleasant, and kept things moving without delay or feeling rushed. I had a seafood entree... More

This was one of my best Italian eating experiences. The food was just great and the service was superb. Just as a side note of how special this restaurant is, having never been there before, my wife and I were headed towards the back door, the manager saw us through the window and unlocked the door so we would not...

I got the groupon for Dolce and was pleasantly surprised! The food was delicious and the prices were high but the quality of the food matched what they charged! I had the garlic and lemon chicken and it was phenomenal! I would recommend this to anyone for a special occasion or intimate date night!

Great all-around experience. We ate on the outdoor veranda. Excellent service. Shared appetizer (bruschetta), entrees (Rotolini and Mugniania), wine, dessert, and coffee were all top notch. Entrees were particularly impressive, with high quality, fresh ingredients, and nice presentation. Highly recommended.
