Food is always good but the service was lacking a bit, as it appeared it was very busy and our food order was not correct, but the staff made up for it and we were happy.

This is an old school style Italian restaurant with excellent service and good food but the noise level is outrageous. In addition to poor acoustics so crowded restaurant already incredibly noisy, they played music turned all the way up. It was impossible to talk without shouting and frankly a big turn off so we left without dessert or coffee although we would have liked to stay longer.

As always, we were greeted with a warm smile and friendly greeting. The restaurant was nicely decorated for the Holidays, the waiter was most attentive and the food was delicious, having been served in a reasonable amount of time. Always a pleasurable experience!

Our family of 4 went for Christmas Eve dinner. We chose from the regular menu of the restaurant. Everything was delicious. Our waiter was attentive and very happy to be of service. We appreciated him very much as he was working on Christmas Eve! Have been to Dodici before and would return again.

I didn't get the meal I ordered and the server, Tony, was perfectly good with blaming the chef. The manager should have, but didn't even check in or apologize. Service rough, tables too small, food mediocre, and prices to high for the lack of quality and service. Don't bother to visit this restaurant.

This restaurant has been around for a while and has never disappointed. The bronzini is among the best I’ve tried anywhere, the mussels delish, baked clams, richer than most. Better than decent wine in the list and friendly experienced waitstaff

My husband and I have been going to Dodici for years. We have had private parties there as well. We have never been disappointed until Saturday evening. NOT with the food or service. That was exceptional as always. However, after waiting 45 minutes past our reservation time to be seated my husband got up from the bar, a third time, to inquire about our table. At that point, the hostess advised him that she was told we had been seated which, of course, we had not. We were given a $20 coupon for the "inconvenience" which didn't even cover half our bar bill for the wait. We will be back, but never on a Saturday night!

Had a 7:30 reservation. They told us it would be 15-20 minutes. 25 minutes went by and we were told we would have to wait an additional 20 minutes. At that point we stayed at the bar and ate our food there. Bartenders were great. Manager on duty was rude, especially to the bartenders.

... we had a 730 reservation and were not seated until 9. The excuse of the restaurant was "its restaurant week".. that is not an excuse! Reservations are made to remove the "wait time" for a table. Upon seating, the service and food were subpar at best, not what we expected. We noticed one table walked out because no one came to them for over 20 minutes after being seated. Looking back, we too should have walked out. We will not be going back.

Disappointing experience. Made the reservation online, indicating it was my wife’s birthday and requested table 14. On the day of the reservation, I called the restaurant to insure the birthday would be recognized at dessert with a candle and was assured that would happen. Upon arrival, our requested table was just seated, the hostess had no record of the request but did acknowledge that a birthday was indicated on the reservation. Surprise! No acknowledgement of the birthday upon serving dessert. Food was good. Management not so much.

I will start my saying the food was AMAZING!! The place was a little loud but, the food made up for it. My waiter disappeared for like 20 minutes after serving us but other than that, overall, it was a good experience.

Have been going to Dodici for over 10yrs. Always an amazing experience. Never had a bad meal, professional and courteous service and love the decor. The Nutella baked dessert is to die for. Worth the calories!!

I was told that I wouldn't be disappointed dining at Dodici and they were right. My partner and I had the Baked Filet of Sole along with two glasses of white wine. I found the wine and the dishes to be very affordable. I will be coming back to this lovely restaurant. Oh, how could I forget the fried Calamari as an appetizer. Wonderful food!

Dodici never disappoints. Food, service always is above par. No complaints at our table. All enjoyed different entrees, salads and dessert.
