“Diamond in the Rough”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

From the outside one would think that this was a dive that was serving sub par food. However, when you walk in you are greeted by the owner and the owners family. The menu is diverse but that doesn't stop the food from being excellent. Pizza....spectacular (my husband RAVES over the Franco Pizza). Dinners......superb! Salads.....scrumptious! It's all fabulous! And definitely save a bit of room from the 'donuts' that they bring to your table at the end.

“Simple, friendly place with good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

Looked at Trip Advisor for ideas on restaurants in Hagarstown as we recently spent the afternoon there. We were not disappointed with Dolce. The food really is like homemade and reasonably priced. The menu runs mainly to Italian dishes, but the owners are from Moldavia and there are some dishes from their culture - hence the full name of the restaurant: Dolce Pizza Gourmet and Eastern European Restaurant. We would make the one hour drive just to eat there, but definitely would go back if we are in the area again.

“A great little find!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

While staying in Hagerstown for the night, we needed a place for dinner. We checked TripAdvisor and decided on Dolce. We were very happy. This would be our little go to place if we lived here. I had the lasagna and my husband had the chicken marsala. Salads came with our meals along with rolls and garlic bread. At the end of the meal we were presented with "donuts." To me they were Italian zeppoles--they were outrageous. Our server was very pleasant and we met the owner. She was very pleasant and accommodating. Don't miss Dolce!

“Little hole in the wall, but great!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

This place don't look like much from the outside, but I gave it a chance. Great food, excellent service, and made to feel welcome and at home. I will def come back again. The only downfall is it is cash only, which I find a bit odd. A restaurant that does not take cards? I hope they will change that soon. No alcohol, but you can bring your own wine,etc with no opening fee.
