My husband and I celebrated our anniversary recently at Dolce Vita Italian Restaurant in Monroe. We just can't stop talking about our fantastic dinner. We were seated almost immediately. The friendly waitress promptly took our drink order. Martini's are $5 on Thursdays. Mine was one of the best I've had. At a perfect pace, the delicious soup, salad and bread... More

Friendly staff in a comfortable upscale (for Monroe) setting. Authentic Italian well done! Often the kitchen can create what your in the mood for. It's worth the visit.

Although, we have eaten off their regular menu and food was okay....I usually only go to eat their sushi- We really like the "Nelson roll". I've eaten just about everything on their sushi menu! Service is slow but sushi is excellent.

No matter your attire you will fit right in. They atmosphere is calm and inviting. The dim lighting can make for a romantic evening. Prices are a little high. I would recommend going as a couple and not a family because of it. I found the restaurant to be extremely clean. It is newer construction and appears to be up-to-date.... More

Had dinner tonight with my daughter after Christmas shopping. I ordered the Tortellini Alla Nonna with the french onion soup & she got the eggplant rollatine with the tomato basil soup. Both of us were pleased with our dishes & our waitress, Blake. Have been going to Dolce since they opened, one of my favorite restaurants in Monroe!

This used to be our go-to place in Monroe. Menu is curtailed - that's OK but is now impossible to read. Pasta was over-cooked. Sauces were far less interesting than they used to be. Steak was as expected. Overall, very disappointing.
