This is the go-to restaurant for my husband and I when we want to have a wonderful pizza or enjoy a traditional Italian dinner. The desserts are also top notch and warrant their own trip (at least for us!). The homemade gelato flavors are a rare treat in Madison (especially the hazelnut and pistachio) as are their excellent torts and... More

I wrote this review on yelp so I'll share it on here as well... Incredible place. One of the best restaurants I've been to while in Madison. The pasta farefalle dish was unlike anything I have had before. The lemon saffron sauce just made it. The restaurant felt like a little secret place. Beautiful simple decor. You can tell the...

This is my second stop at Villa Dolce, and I'm pleased to say my excellent first trip was not a fluke. This time I had the Appolonia salad, and it was marvelous. The flavors of the feta, roasted red peppers and olives along with the dressing meld together perfectly. The tomatoes were even excellent, and it's October! I highly recommend... More

Reservation call was straightforward, after I got through off-putting messages that they were possibly handling other calls. Service for the six folk in my dinner was excellent and the costs were affordable for an expense. They willingly separated the wine and drink charges, which were not allowable. Food was above average to excellent.

Set up like a European cafe, this place is a neighborhood haunt that welcomes locals and visitors alike. A pleasant modern atmosphere is great for chatting and enjoying the food. Gelato is a must.

With our young grandsons in tow, there was a wide variety of meals for all. The pizzas and entrees were very flavorful. The gelato at the end was a nice treat. We will return.

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
