My hubby and I LOVED this place. It was our go to place for Italian besides Portofino's (yum). We even had some of our engagement photis taken there last year bc we love Dolce so much! Our favorites were the Amatriciana (just slaughtered that name), and the homemade gnocchi. Always the most fresh, flavorful, and beautifully plated dishes. Unfortunately we... More

We have been going to Dolce for many years -- we can remember when it opened and was excellent, and then we felt that it moved to "adequate". If last night's visit is any indication of what it is now given new ownership, it's great news. Everything we had was extremely good, and the service was equal to that. This... More

We ate here for the 2nd time and again, it was excellent. I had pasta with red sauce and the sauce was very good. My husband had the spinach ravioli and it was really good also! It is always very relaxing here, never overly crowded or loud. A very nice get away for a great, relaxing meal! We will make... More

We ate here and the pasta dishes are really good! We will definitely be going back again! I had Bucatini with Amatriciana sauce and it was excellent!

Started with mussels and a Caesar salad, both were excellent! Our entrees were seafood dishes that were equally as good! Finished with strong deserts and coffees. Great wine selection and service as well! Really enjoyed this place will return!

Absolutely amazing Italian food. The only complaint was they did not have our reservation listed. They they did after about 10 minutes to get it straightened out and we were placed at a table. Afterwords I have no complaints, the food was simply amazing and the service was excellent so a great restaurant if you love Italian

Dolce has wonderful pasta dishes, and their gnocchi is the best around. I usually get a tasty veal or fish dish, though, as I count carbs.

Very unpretentious décor, with an outdoor patio area. Service was very good, the food was excellent, and the wine was good. Parking can be a bit tricky, as the restaurant shares parking with other stores in a small mall.

My husband and I decided to try out this restaurant because we had a LivingSocial voucher. We found very tasty food. I had the cannelloni, which was delicious, and my husband had a shrimp dish in a pink sauce that he subbed scallops in. He felt there was a little too much spice in there that he didn't anticipate (he... More

Came on a Tuesday night for the home made gnocchi. There was a big note on the menu that due to the labour involved, gnocchi is only available on a Tuesday. We started with the burrata as a shared entree, then the wild boar gnocchi. It was like eating light fluffy pillows of goodness. The best gnocchi I have ever... More
