After seeing ads and passing by a couple of times, my son and I decided to try this restaurant for lunch. They have a kids menu and the chicken tenders and fries were a great size. It also appeared that the chicken tenders were baked and not fried. Thumbs up for that. I had the mozzarella panini, and as hoped,... More

I wanted to try Dolce as I had driven by a few times in the past, so I stopped in for lunch with a colleague. The interior is rather small, so there is only seating for nine or so tables, half of which are deuces. The lunch prices looked good and there was a wide range of sandwiches and panini.... More

This small restaurant is easy to miss in a strip mall sandwiched next to a Subway and martial arts place, but search it out! This hidden gem has fabulous sandwiches and delicious pastries in additional to a line of pastas we are looking forward to trying. We stopped for the first time today for lunch. My hubby had the chicken... More

Found this mom and pop type eatery along with Italian bakery,by accident and boy am I happy. They serve a great variety of sandwich's along with many homemade Italian dishes. The service was great and the soups and dishes were very delicious. Looking forward to eating here again very soon.

We had stopped in the strip mall to have Chinese Food at a well established eatery. However, we saw this somewhat hidden Bistro and decided to try it. It was outstanding. Not only was the cuisine excellent, it was surprisingly inexpensive for the quality and service. The bakery goodies make this a special dinner. They're open for lunch at 11... More

Have been to this restaurant twice now and loved it both times. First time had the lasagna which was excellent and the last time it was chicken Parmesan. The restaurant is really small with only about seven or eight tables so make sure you call ahead to get one.

If you want excellent "fresh" home made Italian food served in a friendly,cozy and unpretentious environment then this is the place to go.The food is great as is the service. I've had dinner at Dolce many times and have never been disappointed. Dolce is a BYOB!!

Great homemade Italian food and you can bring your own bottle of wine or beer. The desserts are FANTASTIC! Sandra, the owner, is friendly and creates a wonderful atmosphere.
