“Our neighbourhood favourite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

We live nearby and eat here two to three times per month. We love the boisterous atmosphere - reminiscent of our wonderful meals at family trattorias in Italy. When the glass doors are open on a warm summer day, there is no better place to be in this city. They have a good kids menu in addition to the tantalizing choices for adults.

“Wouldn't go back”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

Chicken risotto - bland & cold when it arrived. Squash stuffed pasta - swimming in a bed of olive oil. Veal Parmesan - passable

“Good food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

We tried this restaurant for the first time for lunch. The food and service was great. It would have been nice to have more selection in the lunch menu, including smaller portions of the pasta dishes. The pasta dishes and special were expensive for lunch.

“Luncheon so- so”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

Totally knockedoutbythe architecture! Have enjoyed McGinnis Landing and Especially Bertoldi's !

Long drive from north London to Dolcetto. Great expectations. Positive review for the fig/ prosciutto salad and the soupe de journo . BUT the frittata was a dry, tasteless disappointment . I suggested some additions which might have improved the dish. Our waitress said she too makes frittata, but she would have at least included some cheese.
Hello!
Will probably make the journey again, but Docetto's kitchen can't compare to its 2 predecessors. (Yet).

“A pleasant surprise.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

We called for a same-day reservation, this was handled smoothly. Upon arrival, we chose to sit on the patio. Furnishings were stylish and comfortable, inside was spacious and modern. Service was good, with some helpful recommendations for both food and drink. The menu is "rustic Italian". Our selections:
-prosciutto wrapped mozzarella - very good, wonderful tomato sauce
-fig, melon and prosciutto salad - good, melon was under ripe
-baked farfalle - well made
-braised short ribs - excellent
-tiramisu - very good, traditional
-spumoni gelato - disappointing
Of note, all items (except spumoni?) seemed to be house-made with skill and care. Seasoning was as it should be, sauces were wonderful. Well done Chef!
Decent wine list, all Italian, many available by the glass, enjoyed the 9oz option.
We'll be back.
