This is a great little restaurant that serves excellent pizza. However, it is way more than a pizza restaurant. Their pastas and other entries are great. Sauces are outstanding. The restaurant is not large but even so there are small separate dining areas that give it a private feel. There is also a small area outside that is open in Summer. Entrees are not huge, so add an appetizer or salad. The bar area is very small and not one to go to or spend time at for pre meal cocktails. Probably the only negative I can mention. Maybe have your cocktail at one of the other drinking establishments downtown before heading off to your meal. They also have gelato to go

Villa Dolce is open! Same hours, same great menu, but of course take-out only during the state wide ban on table and bar service. Full kitchen staff serving gourmet pizza, calzones and full menu including the best pasta in Madison. Try the many seafood entrees paired with pasta and fresh herbs and vegetables. My favorite shrimp and scallops with linguini in a white cream sauce or the the many steak entrees. Local family owned, managed and served by two generations. Support this unique Middleton restaurant.

We have been coming here for years and are so happy they continue to serve the community safely during this Covid time. It is nice to eat outside if the weather is good but we did eat inside the other day and the tables were well spaced. We also do a lot of take out pizza. We love the Lumani and Bolognese pizzas. We treated ourselves to pasta last time we were here and the Bolognese pasta was tremendous and large. I had enough for lunch the next day! We also love the Aplonia salad and split the side salad size. Gelato flavors are always a good way to end our meal. Always great service from this family owned restaurant!

An italian restaurant with a very poor quality of characteristic italian food. I ordered "prosciutto crudo and burrata": burrata was destroyed by a cover of a sweet balsamic sauce, the prosciutto crudo was of a very poor quality, very salty and dry. Everything was in touch with a pesto sauce with a strong taste that was masking the burrata and prosciutto delicate taste. In conclusion a very very poor choice of the raw materials, of the pairings and in principle of the food management.

The staff here really impressed all in my family as they were friendly and very helpful will all requests. The appetizers were a little cold. The cheese curds were terrific. The calamari was decent but the truffle fries were cold. However, the pizza was a hit with the kids. Would definitely go back though.

Casual dining, excellent food, well priced. The pear and Gorgonzola pizza we chose to have as an appetizer was fantastic! The beef tenderloin trio was flavorful, and tender as butter. The deserts were beautiful and delicious. We will be back on our next visit.

The restaurant has redecorated in the last year. More upscale with black and white cushions and sound absorbing ceiling (much needed as it was very loud in the past). Menu includes variety of salads, seafood, pizza and italian dishes. Deseret menu very good with gelato and much more. We began with fried calamari. Good. Not VG, Light batter and pleasant taste. We spit the bolognese. Enjoyed. Our friends liked their pizza. Wait staff was attentive and professional. They are well staffed. Outdoor seating when weather permits. Viable option if in the Middleton area.

Food is absolutely delicious. Highly recommend the mushroom ravioli. Big selection of desserts, too. Did not care for the small space or blaring pop music so will probably just do take out next time, but still giving it 5 stars because the food was amazing.

We tried Villa Dolce on recommendation of our neighbors. We were very pleased. We ate outdoors, had good service & the food was great. We each had a side salad and split the Mushroom Ravioli and the Prosciutto Arugula pizza. Both the pizza and Ravioli were delicious. The ravioli were a bit rich and good to share. The restaurant also had a nice wine list & dessert menu. Glad we went despite it not being super close to where we were staying. Additionally the town of Middleton is cute and we had a nice walk after dinner.

Sat outside along street. Very pleasant. Ordered a really delicious roasted beet salad with goat cheese walnuts and arugula. Enough for two to share and took some to go. Very light. Great flavors. Ordered wild mushroom ravioli with truffle oil. Outstanding. Good wine. And a very good martini with vodka elderflower liquor and prickly pear juice. Pleasant service. Great experience. Gelato was very good.

Writing this mainly to let you know: If you're trying to decide between the mushroom ravioli and anything else, get the mushroom ravioli! Best I have EVER EVER had, every bite was amazing! The filling wasn't just mushy cheesy bits of mushroom it was REAL mushrooms and the cream sauce was liquid gold - delicate and flavorful, not too heavy. You can't really go wrong here - everything is SO good - but I also recommend the burrata caprese appetizer - simply incredible. The crab/lemon bruschetta appetizer was good but for five of us, more than 1 was too much and definitely get the burrata. The beet/goat cheese salad I would prefer with not so much arugula - would be lighter and less overpowering to use endive. Another winner here is the shrimp/pasta combos; the shrimp is large and sweet and perfectly grilled here. We weren't super into the lemon mascarpone berry cake for dessert - would choose something else (very heavy and sweet) - the grapefruit and blood orange sorbets were AMAZING. As always, the staff was friendly, attentive, and so helpful. Ginny was super sweet and so fun - and fast and efficient to boot! We had an amazing night at Villa Dolce and will always choose it as our Madison/Middleton spot for a special meal.

This place serves both Italian dishes like pizza and very good seafood. The desserts were amazing and the Gelato experience is enough for four people. Tiramisu is unique.

Villa dolce is the type of place you can stop for a quick Italian soda or gelato or linger over a delicious dinner. One of my favorites.

Villa Dolce is a charming, family operated restaurant in an old house with a front porch in downtown Middleton. The pizza, desserts, gelato, and pasta are out of this world. They have many unique entrees. The Pear Gorgonzola pizza and Creme Brulee are out of this world. In good weather, the outdoor seating is wonderful, and indoors is great as well. Please support this great restaurant with outstanding food and service.

I picked up a sausage, pepperoni and mushroom pizza from Villa Dolce and found perfection. Liking traditional pizza, this one has a tender and tasty crust, a good balance of ingredients, the right amount of sauce and great taste. This was clearly made fresh.
