The ambiance of this restaurant couldn't be better. A cheery welcome always awaits you and you are escorted to a table, if it's early enough, in one of the choice spots from which to view outside. Our waiter today was excellent as Dove's waiters always are. We opted for a bottle of Sicilian Pinot Grigio that was moderately priced and... More

Dinner here is not just a meal - it is an experience! The chef is a magician and the wait staff the best in the business. Run, don't walk, to eat at this restaurant! There were 6 of us and we had the meal of a lifetime - who would have thought it? Even the complimentary soup Pasta Fagiule was... More

The quality of the food lived up to their reputation. The ambience was dark and noisy. The service was excellent, knowledgeable waiters. But the bill was a shocker. It was so much higher than the menu would have hinted, I assume the 2 glasses of wine, and one beer ( 4 people ) were priced on a whim. Overall it... More

Let me tell you how amazing this restaurant is . . . I did not even stop to take photos. We had amazing Amarone wine that sells for $60 online and only cost $70 in a restaurant. Wow for the wine and wow for the price. Beef carpaccio was a pleasant surprise as was the Shrimp and avocado salad. The... More

We had a fantastic meal and experience tonight when we took two other couples to the Dove. The service (Yanni) was impeccable, the food was wonderful, and the wine was terrific. Hard to get any better than this. We come to Melbourne once a year for a week, and we can hardly wait till next year when we can go... More

Was there for a luncheon after a funeral on Thursday when they opened. We were a group of 40-50 people. The service was impeccable. I had the Flounder Francese with broccoli. The portion was huge and the food was outstanding. The Cannoli was worth the wait.

You will think you are eating in NYC. The DOVE has the best Italian food, wonderful waiters, great atmosphere and an owner that is beyond words. You start with the best pasta Fajole soup I ever ate. You have hot bread on the table and the chef usually makes you a sausage biscuit for each person. You will than get... More

Had 7 pm reservations and was seated promptly. Service was great and the food was outstanding. Good pour on the wine and very reasonable prices. We also go to this restaurant every time we visit Melbourne.

The Dove III Restaurant in downtown Historic Melbourne is a little pricey but certainly worth the money. Friends came for a visit so we once again went to The Dove. This was , by far, the best meal we have ever had there and one of the best meal we ever ate out. The two couples had Chateaubriand for Two... More

We dined at the DOVE III on New Years Eve this past Saturday night. Our dinner was spectacular! Of course you always get a small bowl of pasta fagoli as a complimentary appetizer. The Caesar salad was terrific with just the right amount of seasoning. I had the special lobster oreganato and my husband had the flounder oreganato. They were... More
