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!

A friend was visiting and decided last minute he wanted Italian. It was a Friday. A football weekend Friday. I was hungry already and would get extremely crabby if I had to wait. We got a reservation through Open Table, I was amazed. And when we got there, right on time, we were instantly seated. Don't be afraid, try it.... More

Why would one choose to dine in Middleton at Villa Dolce instead of venturing in to Madison? A Badger home game is the reason we did so...and what a mistake. Made reservations at 7 pm and due to traffic, we arrived at 7:06 and was promptly scolded by the hostess/owner that we were "lucky" that we arrived when we did... More

My husband and I went on a Wednesday where they have half off certain bottles of wine, had a cab and it was great...I had the wild mushroom ravioli and my husband had the beef bolognese, which he asked to substitute angel hair pasta for the papperdelle. We loved both dishes and also had a goat cheese bruschetta for an... More

I'm a big fan of pizza + I'm a big fan of dessert = I'm a big fan of Villa Dolce. This is my favorite cafe in the Madison area. It's got pretty neat decor and an alluring color scheme. My favorite time to go to Villa Dolce is during lunch, where they serve the "pizzette", your own personal pizza... More
