“Touch of Italy in Middleton, WI”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2011

This is a quaint little restaurant in downtown Middleton, WI that serves unique pizzas. They also offer a nice selection of pastas, sandwiches, and salads. They make their own gelato with an authentic gelato maker from Italy. It's a great place for lunch or a light dinner. Try the pear and gorgonzola pizza (unusual but amazing) or the asparagus with portabella mushroom pizza. Very tasty and the wait staff is always pleasant.

Great wine bar and comprehensive menu. Our favorite Italian food and gelato. Try the pear and cheese pizza. A nice family spot. Mustard Museum across the street.

“Try the pear and gorgonzola pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2011

A nice, low key dining experience. Small cafe type setting in an old house. There is a friendly atmosphere and good food. The menu is rather limited. The pizza is good and sets itself apart from more typical offerings. Also nice choice of salads place. Prices are a little high, but there is plenty of food and plate sharing seems a good approach.

“Interesting Food in an Intimate Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2011

Located in downtown Middleton in an historic house, this is a small restaurant with excellent pizza and comfortable surroundings. We were promptly seated for an early dinner. The wait staff was attentive, but not overweening. Good selection of beer. Excellent pizza with interesting ingredients. Quiet enough to carry on a conversation, but no sense that what you said would be heard by all in the room.

“Excellent service and food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2011

We showed up on a Friday for lunch with 6 kids and five adults. It was a beautiful day and Villa Dolce does not have an abundance of seating. The staff could not have been more gracious and was able to secure us an outdoor table after a short wait.

Villa Dolce had excellent food (we had three different pizzas) and I much preferred their pizza to Roman Candle down the street. However, Roman Candle's atmosphere is much better than Villa Dolce's.

At Villa Dolce, you go in, order your food from a counter, and then they bring it out to you. That said, it is a "high end" counter-service place. The food was certainly good.

We will go back with the immediate family.

If you have an early dinner, for dessert, be sure to walk two doors down to Bloom cupcake shop. Just remember that they close early. They would provide the literal icing on the cake!
