Visited for an afternoon beverage, but I wanted something different from coffee. Even though the kitchen was closed, chef and waitress kindly agreed to go out of their way and heat me up a cup of soup. It was delicious and hugely appreciated.

We called here for lunch and had an excellent large pizza + salad for $25! Admittedly this was a special offer but both pizza and salad were excellent. The only reason for not giving 5 stars is the place is on the first floor up a flight of stairs and there was no menu on display at ground level and... More

My husband and I enjoyed their Tuesdays two for one offer on their large pizzas. The pizzas were tasty and the menu offered a more unusual pizza variety (such as with sweet chilli sauce or with feta cheese) which were lovely. It worked out good value for money given the two for one offer, otherwise I'd say it was expensive... More

We always finish our two-yearly visits to Blenheim with a meal at Dolce Restaurant, and our meal there tonight was as good as ever - possibly even better than in past years. To begin with, our reception was friendly and immediate. Perhaps, since we were booked in at 6.15 pm, and knowing that they had a busy evening ahead of... More

There was no 'hello' when a group of us arrived to have coffee at this restaurant. The lady on the till didn't even smile & when she gave me my change, just plonked it down on the counter. No one seemed to be enjoying their job ... even the lady maiking the pizza bases. She had to rescue us out... More
