The wait staff was careful with
our order, particularly with our grandson's special request. We like sitting in the quiet back room, but felt a bit neglected for a time. Our waitress was apologetic & attentive once the high demand elsewhere resolved. The pasta dishes are dependably good, and we enjoyed the always dependable pasta caprese & apolonia salad. The gelatos are lovely, but I continue to pine for the elusive lime variety."

Busy place on a Friday evening.
Pizza and salads were fine; reservation saved a long wait in line."

We go here often, and the staff
pretty much all know us. It makes it a special occasion."

We often go to Villa Dolce, and
they pretty much know us now, and the wait people are very nice."

I took my friend to Villa Dolce
for her 60th birthday, and was happy to see so many salad offerings - I hadn't remembered that being the case a few years ago. The eggplant appetizer was outstanding, very flavorful and just dripping in warm, gooey cheese! My kale/quinoa salad was delicious topped with salmon, healthy but very satisfying. The one disappointment was that the perfect little round table by the front window had been replaced with two smaller square tables - not at all the 'feel' by the window that I remembered. I would definitely go back to Villa Dolce for a quiet, relaxed meal, however."

We like this spot. The pizzas are
creative and delicious. The wine list is very good. Service is good. And for some reason we like to sit outside. The tables are practically in traffic and these days in a road construction area. But we still choose to sit outside and watch the activity of Middleton. We will be back."

This was our 2nd time to Villa
Dolce, and we again were very pleased. The salad and the pizza was excellent. I would highly recommend Villa Dolce to anyone."

We come here often, and the staff
knows us, so it is definitely a pleasurable experience, as the food is always good and the service as well."

We sat outside of this charming
restaurant. The food was great I had the shrimp and scallops over fresh made linguini which was fantastic! I highly recommend this restaurant. The service at villa Dolce was equally great and from the hostess to the server they were very attentive. "

The evening was lovely and the
service great. We always enjoy coming to Villa Dolce. One of our favorite places. Comfy, and enjoyable."
Dined on 5/23/2014
Great food, perfect ambiance,
loved the gelato bar! The only downside was they were short staffed when we arrived so we sat for about 10-15 minutes before we were served drinks."

We had a group of family for our
son's graduation dinner. The pizza and Italian dishes were very flavorful and simply yummy. It is a very cute little restaurant with a quaint feel to it. We definitely recommend it."

My two daughters brought me here
for a Mother's Day treat. The food was wonderful! I have recommended your restaurant to several people already."

We have dined here frequently and
always enjoy the food, the service and the wine. They even gave us a small chocolate divinity because my husband had recent successful cataract surgery."

Food was fabulous, service was
wonderful, and the price was very reasonable."
Dined on 5/6/2014
We have had a good dining
experience here several times. Comfortable home-like seating. Although menu selection not huge, we have always enjoyed the seafood specials. Interesting pizza choices. Service above average. Multiple gelato choices for dessert. "

I've been to Villa Dolce before
and had great experiences, however last time we went the food was only okay. I'm figuring we caught them on an off night since we usually have great pizza there. What bothered me the most was the hostess and wait staff were bickering with each other not once but twice in front of us. I know you aren't always going to get along with everyone you work with, but never show that in front of customers. Made us not want to come back again."
Dined on 4/18/2014
It was a lovely place. We come
often, as we know the food and wine to be excellent. Love the atmosphere."
Dined on 4/11/2014
My husband and I frequent Villa
Dolce often because it is a cozy, friendly neighborhood spot. We always feel welcome and have a lot of fun with the staff. This time, we treated my mom and sister to a visit to Villa Dolce and they too had a great time. The staff made them feel right at home. The food and service were both very good; if not excellent. There is something about the atmosphere that is simply special."
Dined on 3/15/2014
Very good service and the food was
delicious. It was a little noisy but still able to carry on a conversation at the table. The chairs were very comfortable and we did not feel rushed. I would return again."

This used to be a great little
place we went to 2-3 x/month. Romantic, half-price wine night, great food. Now, just mediocre."
Dined on 2/26/2014
This is such a pretty place and
cozy. I was thrilled we could get in on a Friday night, with little (and changing notice). I tried the lemon drop, which was as delicious as it was pretty - and not too sweet. I'm a self proclaimed bolognese sauce snob - and I love their version of a rich, tomatoey, hearty ragu over the thick noodles. I love the spoon, cause I want to enjoy every drop. It's hard to find restaurants that make their own desserts. For 5 of us, we had a hard time narrowing down our selection to 4. I was glad to have room for dessert, the creme brulee was divine. It took me a long time to go the first time because I figured I wouldn't be able to get in - don't make the same mistake. Great place for a memorable evening."
Dined on 2/21/2014
This is one of my favorite
restaurants in the Madison area. It's a charming little place with amazing food and a great wine selection, plus their gelato is to die for. I would recommend this place to anyone!"
Dined on 2/21/2014
Good food, nice decor--nice quiet
atmosphere to have a relaxing meal of one of their specialty pizzas or pastas. A bit of a fooler as you need to go inside to get a feel--not much curb appeal, but they did a good job of creating a nice atmosphere."
Dined on 2/15/2014
the service was as good as it
could be, considering we were all packed in like sardines flying coach...I made the mistake of sitting on the outside of a row of tables sitting back to back- it was like getting hit by the beverage cart every time the waitress or another person tried to get by. Food was good, but experience was less than desirable."
Dined on 2/14/2014
I loved the food and the overall
experience. Parking is challenging but we'll definitely be back to sample the pizza!"
Dined on 2/14/2014
I have made 3 visits over 7 months
and have always been impressed with the staff, the accommodations and food on my most recent trip we enjoyed a thin crust pizza with pears and caramelized onions, and a superior calzone"

We joined neighbors for dinner
during restaurant week. Always enjoy eating at Villa Dolce. Every entree is perfectly prepared and presented. If you want a pizza but have advanced to the gourmet variety, they do an excellent job of filling that craving. The atmosphere is modern in an old building. We all noted the good acoustics on a busy night. Service was prompt and friendly but not rushed. They have a good wine list and great desserts. We have had lunch at Villa Dolce and several dinners. Thanks for being in Middleton!"

Also I visit during "Madison
Restaurant Week" - the suggested menu was not "good enough" to pay $25 or even $30. we pick items from the standard menu, which turn to be better and less expensive as the suggested "special" menu"

Went here for restaurant week.
They were more than accommodating and really made us feel welcome. Very enjoyable. The food was amazing. I'd go back over and over again as a regular customer."

We always enjoy dining here, and
the wait people are excellent, especially Delores."

This place has been one of our
favorite restaurants since we discovered it 6 months ago. The food is always great & the service is friendly and efficient. A perfect atmosphere for a date or small group. Desserts are fantastic too, made in house daily! Have brought friends with us and recommended it to many others. Already looking forward to our next visit!"

Villa Dolce is a cozy local eatery
with great food, a good selection of wines, and wonderful range of gelatos for dessert. (Actually, their tiramisu is also excellent.) The wild mushroom flatbread appetizer is superb, as are the bruschetta and caprese. I also highly recommend the butternut tortelaci and the beef bolognese for main courses. Every pizza I've had there has also been terrific. The atmosphere is cozy and comfortable, and service is prompt and friendly. Highly recommended!"
Dined on 12/6/2013
Compared to other places in
Madison that we've been to recently, I would say this place is "quiet", just not as quiet as a dinner for two at home :) Great food! We had the carbonara and the Godfather calzone (filled with meats). Cocktails and wine were excellent! Will definitely go back again and again!"
Dined on 11/15/2013
The waitress, Delores, is
exceptional, and the food is quite wonderful. We always have a special time there."

Food excellent, noise level loud
on a Friday evening. A little small and seating crowded, but service was good, nice village ambience."
Dined on 11/1/2013
Truly the best crust I have ever
had on a pizza. Tasted homemade and fresh. So delicious! We'll be back!"
Dined on 10/19/2013
Dinner on a Friday night. There
were two in my party. We split an entree salad and ordered a 12" pizza. This size pizza was plenty food for two, pizza made with fresh ingredients, had great flavor. Thin crust must be homemade. Salad was good as well. They have a variety of beers and wines to choose from. Service was great, we had a reservation and were seated immediately."
Dined on 10/18/2013
First of all, our reservations
were for 7PM; we arrived at 7:06PM. As we walked in the owner greeted us with a "good you are finally here as were just about ready to give your table away"! We were seated and then waited for 10 minutes before anyone came to greet us, give us menus, take drink orders, etc. That didn't set well especially the way we were greeted (by the owner) when we walked in. The wine (drinks), appetizers, and pizza were all really good and I wouldn't hesitate to go back again for those. The service is what would really hold me back from returning."

Villa Dolce is in a charming house
with a front porch in downtown Middleton. The pizzas (especially Pear & Gorgonzola) and gelatinis (martinis made with gelato) are fantastic. The servers are very friendly and attentive. The décor and sound level are perfect for a romantic evening or date. The tables on the front porch in nice weather are especially wonderful. I love this place!! I can't imagine Middleton without it."
