Our dinner at Dolche was thoroughly wonderful. Superb service accompanied by excellent food. The chicken scarpiello was amazing and plentiful. I had enough leftovers for a second meal. I will definitely return!

Our dinner was spoiled by a 45 minute wait for the entrée to arrive after the salad was served. The waiter apologized several times but for a fairly quiet time of the evening there was no excuse for this to happen. Ours was not the only late arrival so something was off in the kitchen. In the end we had them box it up as we had completely lost our appetite by the time it was served.

The service was very good and the servers were quite attentive. However, we would have preferred to sit in the dining room rather than the patio. The heaters and fire place in the patio were just too much even though it was cold out and all of the walls are glass in this small patio area. We were not happy sitting in this patio area.

Dolce was a good find! We came after a late movie and sat in the bar area. We were greeted quickly by the hostess and shown to a table. The server was very attentive and the food was served quickly. This is a local restaurant with a pleasant ambiance, delicious food and a very good fair value

We love Dolce's. The food and the service is wonderful! We started with the brussel sprouts appetizer and they were delicious. We then had the eggplant parmigiana and the hanger steak (which was the best we ever had)!

Can't wait to dine there again.

We made New Years reservation for three for a table but unfortunately got seated at the bar area. It took us over 25 minutes to even get a drink order and there seemed to be a lot of confusion on the staffs end. We ended up getting a different waiter, who was very nice. They put bread on the bread with oil and hummus (which we thought hummus was an odd choice but the bread was good). We ordered calamari for an appetizer which tasted good. The salad for the entrées were extremely small and drenched in salad dressing. The food came out pretty fast but my salmon had no taste to it at all. Also my friend waited for a very long time for steak sauce and had asked more than one person for. It was a limited menu for New Years but they didn’t post it anywhere online which was frustrating. Overall, it was a very disappointing overpriced experience.

Wonderful experience. Asjia (not sure of the spelling) was an outstanding server, very professional and attentive.
The food was very good. Fresh, well prepared, and served in a timely manner.
The sound system is great and the smooth jazz was perfect! Will definitely go back soon.

Great place, great food, great drinks. Everything we ordered was delicious. Pleasant atmosphere. I'm giving it 4 stars however because I feel like we were rushed. Every few minutes we were asked if we were done even as I was holding a fork in my hand while I was eating. I felt that if I put it down or walk away from the table my plate would be gone. Didn't like that. Otherwise very nice and would definitely recommend it. Hold on to your plates though!

I went here for the first time with some friends on Friday night and we can’t stop talking about how much we enjoyed our experience. They were busy but our server was very attentive, and we had one the best meals in a long time. Highly recommend!

First they canceled my reservation even though I called and told them we would be late. Then they never provided a wine menu. The veal was tough and not pounded. The service was scattered.

This is one of our favorites. The staff is always wonderful. The food is delicious. Ample parking. Nice ambiance, not too noisy. You can carry on a conversation. They have three different rooms, the bar area, dining room and enclosed patio. My favorite is the scallops and shrimp over risotto.

The food was quite good...however...Dolce promotes itself as a wine bar...they have a large number of wines by the glass..however...the wine list is weak....at best....

I must preface this by stating that I normally do not write reviews, but we decided to try Dolce for a birthday celebration after reading some favorable reviews. The service was nothing short of excellent from the time we walked in. We shared fried Calamari and fried Mozzarella stick appetizers, both were very good. I had the Fettuccine Dolce as a main dish. My only preference would have been slightly less sauce on the pasta as it was very rich and creamy. Everyone else in our party enjoyed their main dishes as well. For desert, we shared the molten lava cake, which also quite good. Overall, I it would say that it was an excellent dining experience!

Stopped in early for dinner. The service was spectacular. Great menu with nice selection of fish, meat and pasta. Had the fried artichoke hearts which were great (recommend splitting). Also had beautifully cooked Branzino with Quinoa and perfectly cooked al dente vegetables (brussel sprouts, carrots). My wife had delicious mushroom pasta dish. Love the decor! Highly recommended.

I really enjoy the food at Dolce.
For this visit I was however disappointed as my meal was not prepared as expected. The staff did try to make it right but it was still disappointing. Will make a mental note not to order that entree in the future but will visit again.

I've always given great reviews for Dolce..This time we just ordered two pizza's and drinks..The pizza was average, nothing to write home about. A little skimpy on the cheese and just average. It was a bit disappointing . Pizza's are not cheap, please throw some cheese on it..Drunk couple making a lot of noise never helps either. Obviously not Dolce's fault..Not a great experience this time out..

We went to Dolce for my daughter’s graduation celebration. We were over an hour late due to traffic leaving the ceremony but they held our reservation with no issues and greeted us with smiles and a quick round of much needed cocktails! The food was amazing - we’ve been there before and have always had great meals! I highly recommend this restaurant!!

Great food, flare and atmosphere. We enjoyed our meals and chatted the night away until well past closing time. The owner was so friendly and treated us to a drink and invited us to stay as long as we liked. So grateful.
