It was a very lovely evening. Our waitperson was very attentive to all our requests and provided excellent service. Our food was delicious. I did wish for more pasta selections than just fusilli and mac-n-cheese. I was hoping for bucatini al' amatriciana but it was not on the menu. We had a nice table and the ambiance was special for a birthday celebration.
Outstanding. My family ate here our last 2 nights of vacation. The service was outstanding and super friendly. Food was very good, Covid precautions excellent. I have eaten here on a number of occasions the staff currently the best by far.
Not sure if it’s due to Covid, but the wine list has gone downhill. Very few selections by the glass and the available options are lackluster. We still love this place and hope the options expand in the future.
Most of the food was good however there was a notable inconsistency in the dishes. Pasta was served cold. Pizza ingredients were flavorful but the crust was undercooked. The written wine menu was uninspiring, however they have a "secret" stash of wine that was exceptional.
Average food, great ambience, overpriced wine
One of the best places in Missoula. The food is always creative and good. The wine and beer list excellent. The servers are knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. The bay leaf buccatini with chantarelles last week - wow!
It was nice to sit outside. Service was somewhat slow as the place was crowded and I believe the servers were overburdened with too many tables to keep track of. The food was good but there was not the choice of entrees that we have had in the past. Many good pasta dishes though, which satisfied my guests. The lemony fusilli I had was very good.
We celebrated our engagement here while on vacation, wonderful service and atmosphere and food was so good we licked the plate clean !
It took 45 minutes to get the appetizer course and another 45 minutes to get the main course. 3 of the 4 main courses were terrible!
Great ambiance, beautiful patio. Been here a few times. Great place to work during day or have business lunch. They’re best menu items are at dinner time, so be sure to come back then!!
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!!!
