Villa Dolce is Cosy!!

Villa Dolce is a cosy Italian restaurant with friendly service and consistently good food. The thin style pizza is very flavorable and offers ingredients that aren't run of the mill. The Waldorf salad is the best in town. The atmosphere/decor is European and the perfect place to spend a cold... read more

A quick walk around “downtown” Middleton will find you very little. A few townie type bars, the Mustard Museum and a few other restaurants. It was a quick review of the menu that led me to choose Villa Dolce. And it was a good choice. You will find an interesting layout upon your arrival. It is more of an older... More

Three of us shared a pizza and dinner special - all excellent, with good service to boot. We topped off the meal with a Nutella crepe with berries and whipped cream and what about that couldn't be yummy?

I was surprised at first that you order at the front rather than at the table so I was a little skeptical; however, I enjoyed our lunch. We decided to sit outside since the weather was beautiful. I ordered a salad which was very good.

You order and pay at the front counter, take the number, and sit where you like. The server finds you and brings your food. For 2 sandwiches and 2 drinks it cost us $23.00 - a bit steep for us but food was good. Hubby had a panini on toast with the pasta salad (cold and just ok) I had... More

Great pizza, pasta and drinks, but the homemade gelato alone was worth the trip. Warm cozy atmosphere in the heart of downtown Middleton. Definitely worth stopping in!

Food is really great here. Nice, cozy little restaurant on the corner in an older Middleton building. There is some outside seating on bistro tables in the summer. Good service and food is a good value for what you get.

Villa Dolce in Middleton is easy to overlook, but it shouldn't be missed. The food and drinks are great. The service can't be beat, and the atmosphere is good.

Cute, cozy, friendly staff (except I think the guy who owns the place was there and he wasn't friendly nor looked like he was enjoying himself.) The pizza is to die for, and no, it's not cheap, but the quality is well worth it. For those one-time visitors who had a bad experience...go back!
