Party of five for Easter lunch
Party of five for Easter lunch at 1h00 p.m. No valet, public parking at St. James Av. When we arrived, there was no one at the restaurante and we were concerned that it would be a bad sign. However, the food and service were very good, although a little bit pricey. Everybody liked and we had a very quiet lunch, what was great.

A delightful Restaurant, service
A delightful Restaurant, service and food was great. The only complaint was the loud rock music. The my=usic did not go with the decor and elegance of the place. We would have preferred Frank Sinatra and Italian love songs.

Viva Dolce !
Great Italian food. Loved the Mozzarella Caprese - maybe one of the best in town. The short rib ravioli were perfect. Service was spotty on this busy Saturday night . Parking required Valet around the corner on James Ave. The Valet sign said $20 - they charged me $30 plus tip. Great food but the parking ruined an otherwise great meal.

Viva Dolce !
Excellent food. Located in newly remodeled Gale Hotel. Great bar scene.I was greeted immediately by "Nick" at the bar & enjoyed a glass of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc served fast. Once seated for dinner I enjoyed the Caprese Salad, which might be the best I have had to date. The tomatoes were small but full of flavor. The fresh buffalo mozzarella could not be described in words. You could eat it as a main dish - amazing. The short rib ravioli and Cesar salad filled me up quick. My guests had eggplant lasagna, carpaccio, Shrimp & Scallop with Vegetables. Everyone was more than please with the food. The service at dinner was very spotty, but certainly not the worst. It was a busy Saturday night. A good restaurant that I will enjoy again.

My second time and quite a different experience. The Memorial holiday
left the place peaceful and relaxing on a Friday night. Service was attentive and sincere
and we truly enjoyed the evening. Beet salad was great as was trufulata (?) pizza and excellent
Wine by the glass.

Our visit this past weekend at Dolce was an unexpected positive experience since dining in most South Beach restaurants can be disappointing. The food was excellent and the service adequate considering the place was packed. Everything from appetizers to entrees was delicious. I will definitely go back again.

One of the best meals I have had in Miami. Our waiter was adorable the food perfection, absolutely no complaints. The squid appetizer shouldn't b missed. We loved it so much we ordered another one. My branzino was cooked to perfection. My husbands veal was melt in your mouth tender and the deserts were great. We loved the cookies with carmel, but the cannoli was a greater hit. Almost has a french flair to it, not your typical cannoli. Can't wait to go again

Great Place on Southbeach
Great traditional Italian restaurant on South Beach. Way better food than most of the places down here that are mostly selling location.
Great service, and the food was good. I tend to have very high standards for food, so I gave it a four, but will come back when in the area.

Yes and No
The food was great! The wine list was poor. We enjoyed it but it was nothing special although my pasta was amazing the rest of my party didn't agree as much.

Walked into the Gale lobby
Walked into the Gale lobby which is the downstairs area of the restaurant. Great vibe - lots of energy. We were escorted upstairs to the dining room. Intimate smaller space - perfect for good conversation. Server was genuine and helpful. The wine list is varied with prices that are well under other SoBe restaurants. We started with a Charcuterie Platter of smoked meats and fresh mozzarella -DIVINE. There was so much on the platter we shared a pasta of Short Rib Ravioli -YUMMY. My only suggestion is that the server should have split the entree among two plates, without my having to ask. That is really the only off thing about the restaurant. Great Gem in SoBe. Can't wait to go back

Classy Italian in South Beach
A nondescript exterior leads to a warm and interior with a second level dining room that is very comfortable. Our server, Camillo, was knowledgeable if somewhat inexperienced. Appetizers of salad and Fritto Misto were well prepared and very good. Main courses of Eggplant and Short Rib Ravioli were both excellent. Service was good and the atmosphere very comfortable until a large, boisterous group was seated nearby. The manage noticed and moved them to a back location away from other diners. Most appreciated.
Nice ambiance, good food, attentive service, what more can you ask for?

a great italian experience
I went Dolce on a girl's trip to Miami. My expectations of this restaurant were met and went beyond. Hands down the best mozzarella I have ever eaten. The food is delicious and worth the price. I can't wait to go back

It was my fiorst visit as many have reaved about how wonderful it is and I have to agree.
However rich the portions are I thought that the portions were rather small on some dishes for the price.

I have been to Dolce several times and the food and service
Remain top notch. Our friends from out of town loved it!
We shared appetizers, the meatballs, octopus and Calamari and they
were all delicious.
Our entrees were just as tasty and while the portions are not
huge, they are adequate and leave you very satisfied.
The panna cotta was delectable!
