The restaurant is made up of small quiet areas. Obviously by the name the focus is on Italian food. My wife had a nice arugula and spinsch while I had a roast beef and provolone sandwich. You order at the counter and the meal is then served to you. This was a nice change from the typical chain eateries for... More

This restaurant has everything going for it. The only problem is, it could be bigger. The food and drinks are very good. Just what you'd expect in larger cities. But, it's here, in Middleton, Wi. I, for one, am glad!

The restaurant is very cute. It is a house converted into a restaurant therefore there is more than one dining room although both are small and have rather tight quarters. We were greeted warmly and seated quickly. We had to move the table a couple of times just so I could get seated in my chair due to its close... More

I have to admit that I am somewhat reluctant to sample the fare at Italian restaurants. I love Italian food! I cook Italian food. And there's the rub; I'm always wary about what passes for sauce in some Italian restaurants. But I found myself in Middleton with a group, who had one evening to eat out. So it was necessary...

This was our first visit to Villa Dolce, and we enjoyed the experience. It was a lovely night so we sat at a sidewalk table. It isn't scenic, but it's interesting. Went with another couple,and we ordered two pizzas. Both of them were delicious, but we had to ask for one of them to be heated up as it arrived... More

This restaurant has delightful food and plenty of seating both inside and out. Our lunches were all quite good and the individual pizzas cute and tasty. We had two different salads which had some tasty extra ingredients. You only get partial table service here so you order at the front and then sit down to receive service. I found that... More

I have been eyeing Villa Dolce and decided to stop by for dinner on a Friday evening. I thought I would find a basic pizza place, but I was pleasantly surprised by the menu, featuring a diverse selection of pasta, pizzas and other tasty dishes. The decor is whimsical and colorful. The service is excellent. I had the pasta special,... More

I would have loved to take a friend here to enjoy lunch and conversation. So since I was alone I just got to people watch and enjoy a delicious treat of a meal. Although I wish I would have tried one of their pizzete, I ended up going with the strawberry/chicken wrap that had goat cheese in it! Mmm it... More

We love the pizza but so much more to choose from. Service is always very good. Inside and outside seating- we are only "inside" eaters, but those outside looked happy as well. Food always tastes like it is made fresh and to order. Has that "home-made" touch to it. Specialty drinks also very tasty. Never had a dessert or gelato... More

We were at the ice arena in Middleton last night and wanted to eat Italian nearby, so we tried Villa Dolce. The desserts are in a case across from the hostess stand when you enter and they look amazing. There is both inside and outside seating. Several small rooms inside. The hostess greeted us and found us a table inside.... More
