The wonderful thing about this establishment is the choices. There truly is something for everyone. It was clean, well staffed and had a good amount of seating. None of us ordered pizza (sorry no review on that). We ordered a chicken salad, chicken strips, spaghetti, chef salad, shrimp salad and my favorite, fried zucchini. Everything was great. Service was friendly... More

We have had their pizza many times and it is good, They also provide delivery. The menu is vast and they do offer thin or deep dish pizza,

I was working in downtown Philadelphia recently and needed a good takeout place. The locals recommended Dolce, and I was really glad they did. The delivery was quick, the prices were very reasonable, and my sandwich was great! I got the chicken cordon bleu, and it was almost too big. I'd definitely order a sandwich from here again.

Probably the best Brooklyn style slice in the city, it's good for a quick lunchtime bite but I wish they would stay open later

Since it was my mom and I's first trip to Philly, she really wanted to try a cheese steak. I was more in the mood for pizza, however. We found this restaurant in a "lunch and coffee guide" provided by the Mutter Museum. My mom's cheese steak lived up to the hype, the ham and pineapple pizza was good, and... More

Besides cheesesteaks, to me the other great thing in the area is pizza and dolce carini did not disappoint. They have a variety of slices available if you don't want a whole pie and it's very affordable. I'm a meat guy so both of mine had plenty of that, but the veggies looked good as well.

I used to travel a lot to Philly on business and always made sure to get a chicken cheesesteak or pizza at Dolce Carini..16 years later I went back with my kids and the food was as amazing as ever. No cheese whiz here, just great, fresh food, prepared to order.

After the first cheese steak sandwich recommended by a local friend, I went back twice. Loved it every time. I liked the atmosphere also. I tried other stuff with the sandwich, it was very good, but the taste of the steak was awesome.

I got a large cheese pizza. It did not taste fresh and the other pizzas they were selling looked old. Service was better then the pizza.

It is a nice corner pizza shop. They serve variety of hoagies and Italian food. Friendly crew. There are a small dining area in the front of the shop. Very conveniently located on chestnut street. Highly recommend my favorite bruschetta hoagie. We typically use grub hub to order from this place.
