This was my first time visiting Miami in general and this place as well, and our waiter Amos was AMAZING. He was always attentive, if we had any questions about wines or food he explained w no hesitation. The ambiance was great, off street light music. The FOOD, to die for 20 out of 10. Amazing experience. Happy 30th Birthday Maria

One of my all time favorite restaurants in Miami Beach/South Beach! Beautiful ambience, indoor and outdoor dining, and impeccable service!
Full menu with an impressive wine selection to pair with your favorite dish! I am been dining at Dolce for many years, and I continue to dine at Dolce every time I am in Miami Beach/South Beach!

Fabulous dinner.

Five of us had wonderful appetizers and a meal plus dessert. Items included the octopus, meat balls, lobster and fettuccini (special meal), risotto alla parmigiana (short ribs wIth sauce in pasta) plus tiramisu and a chocolate cake for dessert.

Each guest declared that theirs was delicious so success all around.

Excelente cena en un restaurante Italiano, situado sobre la Collins Av, con mesas afuera y dentro. Elegimos al aire libre, un entorno movido ya q esta situado sobre la calle pero nos encanto. La comida fue maravillosa, las entradas abundantes. El branzino lo compartimos. Lo hacen excelente, era exquisito. Quiero descartar la atención de nuestro camarero Amos ( espero recordar bien su nombre) nos atendió con mucha paciencia y nos guió en el menú y con el vino. Fue destacable su constante atención y servicio. Muy conformes. Súper recomendable!

Went out with girlfriends on my bachelorette weekend to Dolce. First impression was great. Server was right at the table when we sat down asking for our order immediately. We were not ready but ordered a couple appetizers out of the 5 options available. He came right back for our order and we just picked something as he was almost insistent we order. Our food came out in a decent amount of time, was overall alright. Asked for some red pepper to spice up my bland ravioli, but this was the last we saw of our server. He never brought the pepper and never came back to our table. He literally did not come back to our table for the rest of the time there, probably 45 minutes. I then proceeded to ask another server to get our server for us, still no Marco(think this was his name) We next spotted a man in a suit who we thought could be a manager and called him over. He ended up taking 20% off our bill and explained the server was making a lot of coffees in the back…. Not an excuse for the lack of service we received and the amount of time our table was neglected. Overall night was ruined and we ended up not going to our next destination after our whole mood was ruined. I know you work on south beach and deal with tourists and outsiders daily but we are also very experienced servers and know how the whole system operates.

Overall great would go back. The location is great as is the decor. The food was good but a limited menu- though that could be a COVID thing. Amos the server was good to start but he wanted us to make sure we got our order in right away since it was going to be a busy night. But then he seemed to abandon us - though the table of pretty woman got his attention- finished plates sat in the table for 20 min then it took another 10 for him to come back and ask about dessert- we ordered cake and coffee. Cake came and 10 min late Amos brought coffe. Would recommend just had an absentee waiter.

Great service, food was far better quality than most restaurants in the area. I would definitely come back. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is because I have been spoiled by the top quality food in New York.

Food was amazing! AMAZING! Although I've definitely had better burrata. Wine was fabulous. Cocktails, fabulous! Ambience, nice and dim. Vibe, great. Server, very attentive, but not overbearing. They took my unfinished food in the kitchen and packed it for me and didn't have me sitting there at the table scraping my plate into a "doggy bag". I will definitely be back. Loved it!

Outdoor dining is on the very noisy and tacky Collins Blvd. Some of the views will spoil an appetite. Food was decent but way overpriced and the service was very indifferent.

The only negative was the Mango Bellini which my wife did not like. They swapped it.

Good fair price menu for the setting.
