We came in from out of town and stopped here for a light dinner around 6 PM Sunday night. We found this restaurant on wife's phone app. The restaurant was not what you would expect from outside. It is sort of in a commercial area, small store front but don't let that stop you! My wife and I split a Antipasto salad that was large and perfect! Crispy lettuce and veggies all fresh! plus the normal antipasto toppings. We then had a large Pizza, one of their specials with Pepperoni, sausage, peppers, onions, mushrooms and? It was like a picture when it came out! And tasted great! The female chef not only cooked, but waited on the tables. She was fantastic and the experience was memorable. We were treated to a hot roll after we ordered and it was delicious, when we were leaving she had us wait a minute longer as she served us some fried dough with powder sugar that also was great! I will definitely go back for a visit next time when we are passing through

We go regularly to Dolce (we call it "Julia's) for guaranteed satisfaction. We go for the food and are never disappointed, always pleased. NOTE: Cash only, BYO [this avoids high prices].

The physical ambiance is homey, but the welcome and the food are superb. Julia is looking for a new, large location, we believe.

We have had most of the offerings on the menu at one time or another. The less common (more exotic) items require a bit more time for preparation. If we are time-pressed, we call ahead 20 minutes and order a pizza to carry out or to eat in. We ordered a vegetarian pizza once, with vegetarian friends, and I was amazed how delicious it was, and I'm a carnivore!

Other reviews appear accurate from each perspective. I would add that the "industrial" neighborhood is really mixed. The majority of the area is residential away from Frederick St.
The one negative review, I believe, was colored by preconceptions.

The owner, Julie is truly out to serve her customers. She goes above and behind to make you happy. She makes everything from scratch from the fresh bread to the dish and then tops it off with a sweets. She takes time and cares about what people think about her joint. By the way, she spends 6 hours every two days making her amazing sauces! Best European place around, and the best pizza too! Highly Recommend!

This place is one of a kind. The food and service is wonderful. You feel at home and welcomed. Everything is homemade from scratch which you don't see very often.
