    My experience was disappointing. I made a reservation well in advance for 7:30. When we arrived the hostess told us they were running 10 minutes late. My girlfriend and I had to wait for 30 minutes before getting seated. When we were seated they did not bring us bread so we had to ask for that separately. They also did not bring a spoon for my girlfriend’s spaghetti. Food was delicious though.

    Absolutely delicious. Nice tables outside, not too close to other tables or the street. Matre 'de was very pleasant and gave us a tour of the restaurant and shared its history. The food was perfect. You must try the Bolognese.

    We set inside vice outside and the table we chose was perfect for two people. Our waiter Sergio did an outstanding job. I had the veal saltimbocca and my wife had the ravioli. We had a bottle of Jordan Chardonnay. This was a birthday celebration for my wife and could not have picked a better restaurant.

    The restaurant is positioned on a busy corner which is delightful to watch people. The food and service is excellent. As a nice restaurant, my only complaint is Dolce does not carry Stevia (green packet) as a sweetener. There was an occasional loud horn from a truck or car, but the outdoor seating is special. Highly recommend.

    I booked a reservation for Dolce after reading reviews and this restaurant did not disappoint! The service was fantastic! Above a 5 star in my opinion! We dined early and the restaurant was not overcrowded but it has a lovely vibe and really cool! Zander’s was our server and his team was great! We had a wonderful dinner, my family and I. The portions are generous and the chef is very creative! Recommend the bureaus with prosciutto, the special lobster linguine dish and the branzino! Dessert of pana cotta, blueberry cheesecake and gelato did not disappoint. We found it comparable to a fine restaurant price at home. We really did enjoy dining here and would highly recommend it! And would definitely return! Thank you for a great first night in Miami!

    Dolce Italian was wonderful. Very convenient to our hotel, very attentive wait staff, and fabulous food! I think it was the best pasta I have ever had - I had the spinach ravioli entree. The pannacotta with fruit for dessert was great too! When we are in Miami again [this time was for a meeting], we will have dinner here again!

    It was my boyfriend’s and I one year anniversary, we sat upstairs and it was amazing! The food all came out perfect! I got the grilled octopus and he got the heart of Roman, we both cleared our plates :)!! The entrees came quick and didn’t disappoint! The server was nice and greeted us within a minute of being seated, he knew what he was talking about when discussing the menu. And the drinks were delicious! All in all I would rate it a 10/10 !! If you are looking for a date night this is the place to go :)!

    We dined at Dolce Italian for my husbands birthday and unfortunately the food is just mediocre. We ordered a Cesar salad and calamari for appetizer’s and the portions were super small for the price. Our entrées are horrible, I ordered spaghetti and meatballs and spaghetti wasn’t fully cooked and the meatballs were raw inside. My husband ordered the seafood dish and wasn’t hot and extremely small with one shrimp in the entire meal. To add insult to injury our waiter kept coming to the table every three minutes asking is everything good? We decided to order some cocktails in the red sangria taste like red water. Very disappointing! At the end of our meal, even though the waiter knew it was my husbands birthday nothing was proposed to me to honor his birthday. This was a meal well over $200.00 and nothing even done to the bread was mentionable. Our waiter even had the nerve to ask us if we wanted our meals to go as our plates were full of food. What he should’ve been asking us is, was your meal to your liking. We could’ve gotten a better meal at a smaller intimate Italian restaurant. I forgot to add when we arrived at the restaurant they couldn’t even find a reservation which was made through Open Table. I literally had to show her my phone with a confirmation. Awful

    Went for dinner and had to sit outside because my son was wearing shorts. I didn't see a dress code anywhere, not ok. Ordered ceasar salad and spaghetti with meatballs. The salad had too much dressing on it. The sauce was a very salty and the meatballs were a bland mix of meat. The food is very overpriced for the quality. I can say my server was very attentive though. The best thing on my table was the bread basket and the water. I could have gotten that anywhere. You live and learn. I won’t be returning.

    Excellent food! Everything was delicious. Our server was either drunk or high. They messed up the order multiple times and “forgot to fire” the entree so it took an extra 30 minutes. It’s the first time I didn’t add extra tip to the automatic surcharge. Would return but not have them as a server!
