I had heard that the main dining room is very loud, so I requested to be seated in the side room. This was very nice for our small group of four. Our server was wonderful and very accommodating to our special requests. Treating my parents to a complimentary dessert for their 62nd wedding anniversary was the perfect end to a lovely dinner. Thank you.

La Dolce Vita
I have never been disappointed by Cafe Dolce. The waitstaff is knowledgeable about both the menu items (which change seasonally) and the wine list, giving personally recommendations and taking diners likes and dislikes into account. Dishes are often simple, allowing high-quality ingredients to really shine.
If you hope to get a spot on the beautiful patio (which I definitely recommend) note that Cafe Dolce does not take reservations for these tables; get there early or be prepared to wait a bit - but who's really in a rush, at Cafe Dolce you're in for a true Italian experience, gelato bar and all.

Everything without exception was well prepared and tasty. Salad perfectly dressed. Entrees done to perfection. Even the coffee just as it should be--rich and hot (not tepid). Indoor/outdoor seating an added delight.

One of the best meals I've had in years. Each of us, we are five, had an excellent experience.

A very good meal for four
A very good meal for four hungry guys! I particularly enjoyed the freshness and taste of the salad and antipasti. The pour-over coffee also rocked. The portion sizes were perfect. The dining room is quite loud and feels a bit chaotic when it is full, as it was when we visited.

Love Caffe Dolce!
Great as always! We loved having Sarah (I believe that's her name) as our waitress, very sweet and always polite. We love dining here, whether it's indoors or out on the patio.

We never would have discovered
We never would have discovered this without Open Table. The pizza was just as we like it; crispy cracker crust, minimal , high quality toppings, done creatively. It is a Missoula gem!

The cooks have managed to create a fresh board that combines simple, quality ingredients in elegant combinations that create whole new levels of flavor. The portions were perfect, the attention to detail superb, the presentation considered and the service prompt and friendly without being overbearing. Go there.

Out of town and decided on this restaurant. Great food, wine (try the rose) and atmosphere. We will be back next time in Missoula!

A Dining Gem in Missoula
Recommended to us by a local Missoula lady we have to confirm her good opinion of the restaurant.
The ambience, service and food was above average and the staff were exceptionally personable.
An overall wonderful dining experience and we would certainly eat there again should we ever find ourselves in Missoula.

Incredible find in Missoula!
We were visiting Missoula and wanted a great restaurant for a summer meal. After looking at options on OpenTable, we decided on Caffe Dolce based on menu and ambience (complete with a beautiful fresco on the ceiling!). Our server, Elizabeth, was fantastic. She recommended appetizers when we asked, knew the menu very well, and was extremely attentive without being obtrusive. We had Meze as an appetizer, the Wagyu Filet, Heirloom Tomato Pappardelle (FRESHLY made pasta!), and the Heirloom Tomato Pizza. Everything we tasted was INCREDIBLE. We consider ourselves foodies and the atmosphere, service, quality of cuisine, wine list, and menu options EASILY competes with great restaurant finds in larger cities. Thank you for an incredible meal!

Love the location
I used Open Table on a summer Thursday night. We were seated immediately. Food is nicely prepared, servers are delightful. When back in Missoula, you know where to find me.

One of Missoula's best
I get on a plane for business almost every week. I travel to Missoula every so often. When I do I try to dine at Caffe Dolce. The menu choices are varied - from a lamb burger to pizzas to pastas, etc. I've been there four times (so far) and have always really enjoyed the food and service. The desserts look wonderful. Something like 15 or so flavors of gelato along with pastries and cakes. I would not hesitate to recommend Caffe Dolce.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
You've done it again, Caffe!
I have been to Caffe Dolce on a number of occasions and have never been to Caffe Dolce several times. For breakfast, it's a great place to grab some fresh food and great coffee and start your morning. For lunch, it's an energetic atmosphere and a great place for business meetings. Then, come evening, transforms into classic fine dining with amazing food!!! Service is great, food is top notch and the wine list is bountiful. It's a bit loud, but still worth it!

Split in Two
Menu is dichotomous--good simple dishes on the one hand; trendy, overpriced fare on the other.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
I think this was the best steak I ever had. And the potato's and asparagus....divine! My husbands pasta was awesome and the kids loved their butter noodles and pizza. Our server was super sweet also!
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a delicious dinner with personal, excellent service our one night in Missoula. It is a beautiful place in a quiet, green-tree'd neighborhood.

Favorite restaurant in Missoula
My daughter and I were visiting Missoula to look at the University and were trying restaurants throughout our stay. This was a great find. Very nice outdoor patio in a quiet neighborhood. The food was very good, fresh and authentic. I had a frisée salad with fresh herbs and strawberries that was unusual and lovely. We chose the featured wine by the glass from Montepulciano, the wine directors description was not an exaggeration, it was a fantastic pick. Our server was very sweet. If this restaurant were in my neighborhood I would be here often.

A top 5
One of the best in Missoula. Really good food, priced reasonably, with good service. I make sure I go there every time I am in town.

Congratulations to the Cafe Dolche chef for having the integrity to serve authentic Italian food. A welcome relief from the salt laden and syrup drenched fare of lessor establishments ... and the bill was very reasonable.

I enjoyed the atmosphere and food. Great place to go for a high end dinning experience.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
We will be back
This place could be a real gem. I appreciate that it is off the beaten path, and has a neighborhood feel. It is a beautiful wide open space, yet you could easily have a romantic dinner. Ours was not - we had both of our teen daughters with us and they were equally comfortable in this setting. We had several pizzas and pastas that had a home-cooked appeal to them, yet light, as we still had room for dessert. One gripe - the dessert service was a bit off. We were told to go over to the gelato/bakery counter and pick out what we wanted. I thought it was odd that we needed to leave the table to get our own dessert. And when we returned to the table - we found a dessert menu had been placed in the middle of the table. ??

I've been to Cafe Dolce many times and always enjoy the food and wine. Love the atmosphere inside and out.

My husband and I were here for diner on a recent jaunt to Missoula, and found the food to be wonderful, as usual! Staff was very attentive, food came in a fairly timely way, considering how busy they were on this evening. Noise, however, continues to be an issue at this location. Did notice they have installed sound boards high on the very tall walls, which helped a bit. We'll return, as overall we enjoy dining here, and the patio in summer is fabulous!

Best food in Montana !
Wonderful! Took friends from Billings and we spent the rest if our weekend talking about how amazing the food was! We are all originally from Denver and have our favorite restaurants there and we all put our food experience equal to those.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time to the restaurant. Service was great. The food was also great. We did not have to wait long for food despite it being busy inside.
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had good food and our waitress was exceptional. It is noisy with the high ceilings. We have also eaten lunch there several times and the prices are more reasonable but there is a delay time between ordering and getting your food. There is also a real problem with parking but we enjoy the food so much that it is worth it.
