Outstanding gem of a Italian Restaurant. This place would be at home in New York. My pasta fagiol soup was outstanding. The service was attentive. I wish this place was in New York. The portions are very large.
My new favorite restaurant in Florida.

I have actually been to The Dove III several times after discovering it. The service has always been excellent,and we always ask for Jeffrey as our server. The food is outstanding and the portions are large. The homemade Limoncello that they serve to cleanse your palate is very tasty, be sure to ask about taking some home!If you like Italian food you owe it to yourself to check it out. I would definitely call ahead for reservations, especially on weekends.

On December 9 The Dove III provided what can only be described as an Exemplary Feast. I brought my Clinical Nurse Managers in to thank them for their hard work. Carlo ensured this was a treat for my staff. From the moment Diane greeted us at the door until we left three hours later (never rushed), we had an evening to remember. Dave provided service which was sublime.His humor and courteousness made the experience very enjoyable. We can not rave enough about Dove III. The only concern is if too many people find out how wonderful the food and dining experience is we will have to wait to obtain reservations so we may return for another visit. Hats off to Chef John and the staff at Dove III. Thank you Thank you Thank you

Located on a beautiful historic street in Melbourne is the Dove. I am not sure if the name comes from the lovely bird, or more interesting is the Italian meaning, which loosely translated means 'where have you come from' or "where are you going'. We travel from Vero Beach to the Dove, and sometimes from the Orlando airport and we are usually coming or going from somewhere, and Carlos at the Dove always makes you feel so very welcome, and his attention to detail is amazing.
The Dove is a modest, cozy restaurant and very comfortable, and now for the food and wine.

Carlos brings Bellini, a drink right out of Venice, and then a cup of pasta fagiole, right out of Naples, and then a series of wonderful dishes, from the usual suspects like lasagna and veal rollatini, and pasta every way you want it, and also special dishes like grilled shrimp and avocado salad.

The food is excellent, and in our group, some wanted a pinot grigio and others a sauvignon blanc, and guess what? Carlos has a Bertani wine, which combines the two grapes and it was excellent. Then of course a small glass of limoncello.

Excellent service, great good, comfortable and very reasonable, a place not to be missed.
