Great service and food. Good adherence to safe dining distancing and practices.
The staff is fantastic and the new chef is bringing some wonderful flare. We thoroughly enjoyed the quality food, atmosphere and place to celebrate with our daughter and her partner. We will keep coming back.
This was our first time at Cafe Dolce. We were visiting from out of town and it was our last meal in Missoula. Our last meal was on a high note because of Cafe Dolce's staff, food, and impeccable COVID protocols. If you want a place that is safe and friendly with outstanding, delicious food look no further than Cafe Dolce.
Dinner was absolutely delicious and the staff was very on top of social distancing with masks and hand sanitizer at the door!
Great atmosphere and pretty good food. We really enjoyed the restaurant.
We had such a wonderful time here at Cafe Dolce. Their menu options, flavors, and presentation were outstanding. The service was really good. It’s honestly such a beautiful space and paired with amazing food it’s a full package experience. My only complaint is that their wine bottle list is marked up a bit too much, and could use more expansive options.
Always a favorite spot. LOVE the lamb burger. Fantastic wait staff.
The food was excellent with exceptional wines
This place is incredible! Everything from the detailed and beautifully hand-painted ceiling mural to the friendly and generous staff to the unique array of menu choices- we were blown away! The mussels and bucatini were my favorite dishes. We will definitely be returning!
The salad (which I've ordered many times in the past) was abominable. Underdressed and vinegary. No rolls were served. Felt like an idiot paying my bill.
I had an excellent dining experience - good food, great service and the bordering noise level was tolerable. There was a tot being swung up in the air, which was a bit distracting but he didn't cry that much then. I was worried they would drop him. Still, it wasn't my kid, so I ignored it. I had a lovely table by the window - nice view of the whole restaurant with the china in the back. Overall, I enjoyed my evening there. The place swings. I love to go to Caffe Dolce.
Always a treat. Our waiter was terrific!
We celebrated our anniversary there. Last year we were in Rome and Cafe Dolce had pasta exactly like they had in Rome and the Gelato was too. Their house wine was great. It was nice to be in a restaurant that we could actually have a conversation. So many places are so loud but this one was not. The ambiance was nice with dimmed lights and candles. Plus they gave us an anniversary gift on our tab.
Birthday dinner for 14
The food is always unique and delicious and the service friendly and most helpful.
The service is normally good, but some miscommunication about getting our food quickly because we were going to symphony which was shared with the servicer. Once meals came we had to rush through them. Good great & will go back.
Everything about our experience was great. Our server was attentive and helpful in ordering etc. Table spacing is great for conversations and privacy. The food was outstanding from salad, apps, to entree and dessert. My daughter ate vegetables she had never hear of because they were GREAT!
My only suggestion would maybe to be more conscious of bussing tables more quickly? Plates sat for a while. Not a big deal.
Loud, food not bad, great wine list. Portions a bit small. Menu not expansive, desserts ok nothing great. Would have to think hard before returning. Recommended with qualifications.
Dinner was fantastic and the wait staff was very friendly!
Excellent as usual
We had guests from the east coast who have traveled pretty much everywhere and they truly enjoyed the restaurant and thought the food was excellent. Caffe Dolce is reliably good all the time.
We were in Missoula on vacation and wanted to have a great dinner. We checked Trip Advisor and this restaurent was #1 on their list, so we made reservations and had a delightful meal. The food, service, and waiters were wonderful. We were not rushed and enjoyed a relaxing evening.
Fresh made pasta, excellent service and food. I would recommend this restaurant to a friend
Fed up with Dolce's inconsistency. Have had the house salad often enough to recognize that what was served to me the other night was a total mistake. Inedible. Much vinegar and almost zero oil, as if someone got the proportions reversed. Had to send it back (which I hate to do: embarrassing). The server brought an identical salad back, saying that there was nothing wrong with the first. The pasta too was awful, with a disgusting pool of liquid at the bottom of the plate. Papardelle doughy and tasteless. (In the past I have usually found the Dolce pasta delicious.) Have had many incidents of Dolce's wild inconsistency in the past, and this was one too many. This once-loyal customer will not be returning to Dolce for dinner any time soon.
My friends were very impressed with the whole experience. It was a wonderful evening.
This restuarant was outstanding, even beyond MIssoula. The food was of the highest quality, with a decent array of entrees and sides. The brussel sprouts were seasoned and sauted to perfection. The flank steak was very nice and plated well. The halibut (fish special) was, according to my friend, exceptional. Service was excellent, with our waitperson having a good grasp of food questions and answers, and who paid close attention to our needs. I look forward to returning, and hope that it will maintain its high level of quality. I will not hesitate to recommend this restraurant to my friends.
Outstanding wine list including options by the glass, 0.25l and 0.5l.
We always appreciate the excellent food and service. One of our favorite places to take out-of-town guests. Great beer and wine selection also!!!
We had an outstanding meal at Caffe Dolce while traveling through Missoula from Yellowstone. The food was exceptional, the wine selection amazing, our waiter ( young man studying art history) made us feel comfortable and relaxed. We are lucky to have found this special place.
We enjoyed the pasta and pizza we ordered. Had a great salad to start off with as well.
Excellent service. The shrimp special was slightly overcooked.
Excellent wine list. All four entrees were delicious. Menu not too large, but plenty of variance. Great service. A tad loud, but we had no trouble conversing.
We had a lovely evening. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. We would highly recommend Caffe Dolce.
The food is always outstanding. It is fresh and the atmosphere is lovely.
My only issue is that every time I arrive I awkwardly stand in the entry waiting to be greeted for 5-10 minutes. At brunch this happens as the host appears to be clearing the tables and running around, and this happened at dinner. It seems that a long line always forms with people waiting to be greeted. It appears there are plenty of people working: often at brunch there are 5 employees behind the counter, yet customers stand in a long line waiting to be acknowledged. I hope this gets figured out as it has been my experience on at least 4 occasions and this place is pretty great!
The food was fresh and unique, and the service was friendly and efficient. Delicious experience!!
Delish in all ways!
Wonderful evening ! We enjoyed every bite! Attentive service, fresh entrees, wonderful wine. What a delight!
Made a reservation - asked for a table by the window but got one in the middle of the room instead. However, the food was very good and the service was excellent.
Our evening was delightful! It was my first visit to Missoula and wanted to try this restaurant. It was great! Our waitress Lilli was tremendous and so helpful. Her advice was spot on for the things we inquired about to order. It was delicious. When we are back in Missoula, this will be the first place we come for dinner. Thanks
