This place is fantastic! Nice atmosphere, delicious food and fabulous service. The food was a bit pricey but after you taste the food you'll think you died and went to heaven!

We were looking for a different restaurant & stopped here on a whim. We were so glad we did! The food was excellent. Sam was attentive & friendly. I had the fish & chips ... the fish was perfectly cooked and flavorful. The Lemon Cello cake was almost to die for! We don't usually have dessert but decided to try... More

Took my family there for my husbands birthday. Six of us total. The place looked very nice. Our waitress was very friendly. The menu had food on it that needed explaining. 5-6 times we had to call the waitress over to explain what a dish was. Why isn't there a better description on the menu. Was glad that our waitress...

We come frequently. Always something interesting on special, but if the specials don't entice us, we have several great favorites on the menu. Great pasta fra diavolo and fried bologna sandwich; just depends on your mood. Super interesting drinks and desserts. I highly recommend asking for a scoop of house-made chocolate gelato in your espresso!!!!

We stayed in town while visiting Mammoth Cave National Park. Looked up this place on TA and saw good reviews so we gave it a shot for drinks and apps. It was so good we came back the second night! We sat at the bar both nights- we were floored at the amount of work going into each cocktail. Everything... More

Novo Dolce is mine and my friends favorite place to eat in Bowling Green. The service is always great, their specials are always great and unique, and the environment is lively but not overwhelming. When they have their cream of veggie soup on their specials, GET IT! Trust me-- best soup I've ever had. Their burger of the day is... More

This is casual dining at its best. The food is familiar but with unique twists. Prepared excellently and deliciously tasteful. For instance, the Fried Bologna sandwich is prepared with Mortadella, a wonderful cold meat from Bologna, Italy. The pasta is seasoned with fresh vegetables and spices. The Greek salad is large and delicious with freshly grilled chicken. To top off... More

Novo Dolce is tucked back in a shopping center and is a surprise from the time you enter. Their entrees aren't your run of the mill type and you can always expect the food to be hot & delicious. Their pizza dough is incredible.
