    I asked for a 7:00pm reservation on Mothers Day for 10 people. They accepted my reservation and we were promptly seated. As the waiter handed us the menus he told us to hurry up and order because the kitchen was closing. They had been there since 11am and wanted to go home. Most of the food on the limited menu was not available because it was sold out. Once our order was placed everything was served in rapid succession. Most of the food was not hot when served. I have eaten at this restaurant on numerous occasions not on holidays but have never been treated as rudely as we were on Mothers Day.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 5/13/2012
    We went to Dolce Novita for lunch on Mother's Day. This was the first time we dined in and the food was delicious! The red sangria was the best I have tasted, however, gave me a headache afterwards, which was rare that this happens. The server was somewhat attendant, but he lacked a little personality. The server was friendly enough, however, could improve on his customer service and listening skills. We asked if they had a half-pint of sangria and he confirmed yes, but gave us full pint instead. He was kind enough to change it. Although, the food we ordered was well seasoned and delicious, the turnaround time of having our entrees on our table was slow! And at the time, the restaurant was not full!

    nice place to take the family out on a sunday afternoon, service was attentive, food was nicely prepared and portions were generous. It's safe, no surprises, and sometimes that just what you want. You can feel confident that they will take care of you.

    Dolce Novita is one of my favorite restaurants in NJ. The food, service and ambience is excellent. I know I can't go wrong in whatever I order. My friends love eating there, too. If there was any constructive critiscism, it was our entree where the fish and chicken were hot, but the vegetables and pasta were cold. If we hadn't had the appetizers and soup, I would have sent the cold food back One of the veteran waiters asked how the food was. When I told him about the cold vegetables, his attitude was indifference. If he didn't want feedback, he should not have asked. Our server who took our order, apologized when he heard about the cold sides.

    Two of us ordered the pork loin which was very tough. Dessert ( rice pudding ) was watery. I hadn't been to this restaurant in a while and I remembered the food to be better. Perhaps it was just an off night

    Restaurant was absolutely empty -- we were the only ones there - should have been a warning. Dreadful food.

    The chicken parmesan and veal marsala were wonderful. The wait staff are friendly and knowlegable. Loved the tiramisu. This is certainly my comfort food place.
