Started with mussels and a Caesar salad, both were excellent! Our entrees were seafood dishes that were equally as good! Finished with strong deserts and coffees. Great wine selection and service as well! Really enjoyed this place will return!

Absolutely amazing Italian food. The only complaint was they did not have our reservation listed. They they did after about 10 minutes to get it straightened out and we were placed at a table. Afterwords I have no complaints, the food was simply amazing and the service was excellent so a great restaurant if you love Italian

Dolce has wonderful pasta dishes, and their gnocchi is the best around. I usually get a tasty veal or fish dish, though, as I count carbs.

Very unpretentious décor, with an outdoor patio area. Service was very good, the food was excellent, and the wine was good. Parking can be a bit tricky, as the restaurant shares parking with other stores in a small mall.

My husband and I decided to try out this restaurant because we had a LivingSocial voucher. We found very tasty food. I had the cannelloni, which was delicious, and my husband had a shrimp dish in a pink sauce that he subbed scallops in. He felt there was a little too much spice in there that he didn't anticipate (he... More

Came on a Tuesday night for the home made gnocchi. There was a big note on the menu that due to the labour involved, gnocchi is only available on a Tuesday. We started with the burrata as a shared entree, then the wild boar gnocchi. It was like eating light fluffy pillows of goodness. The best gnocchi I have ever... More

We have been wanting to try Dolce and finally got around to having lunch today. We both had their shrimp scampi special which was served with risotto and it was really good. The shrimp was butterflied and stuffed with crab, perfectly fixed and the risotto was creamy and delicious.

Charming - a nice little neighborhood restaurant with a "custom" menu and very good service. Prices were very reasonable as well.

What could have been a great evening out quickly turned into a very bad experience. This was my first and last time visiting this establishment. My rating for them is low due to poor service. One member of my party asked about the rate (20%) for the gratuity and was berated by an older, female manager. Another person in my... More
