Italian

Capturing the timeless spirit of Fellini's 1960's Rome, Dolce Italian brings 'la dolce vita' to life with its effortless charm and approachable sophistication. In 2015 Dolce Italian took national stage winning Bravo TV's 'Best New Restaurant.' Executive Chef Paolo Dorigato brings to each restaurant his lifetime of culinary passion driven by his upbringing in Trentino, Italy. Dorigato expresses Italian cuisine in its purest form with his simple yet bold, authentic, and seasonal menus. Signature classics range from handcrafted pastas, to meatballs over creamy polenta, and a selection of specialty Neapolitan pizzas. The bar showcases an extensive wine list and specialty cocktails. Designed by Chris Sheffield of SL Design, the 150 seat dining room offers a curated collection of mid-century modern furniture. The 50 seat wrap-around terrace overlooks the luxurious shops of Buckhead and is ideal for al fresco dining and enjoying a seasonally focused menu or lingering over an Aperol Spritz.

                              Nice place, food was good but not memorable. Dolce is very nice inside but they play a classic rock sound track that just doesn't go with the vibe of the room and distracts from the mood. Service was average, waiter disappeared after food came out and bread and water girl did not speak English and I was not able to order another glass of wine. Wine was very overpriced and served warm. Two glasses of wine, two appetizers and two pastas were $125 plus tip, for that amount of money you expect things to be better than just average.

                              Our waiter, Antonio, was fantastic. He took superb care of us, guided us through the menu, and shepherded through the courses. I was very impressed. I must also say, the Spinach and Ricotta Tortelli are to die for. Such light, delicate pasta with sublime filling. They were out of this world. Do not overlook them. As our waiter recommended, they are "the most underrated item on the menu." I'm only in Atlanta for another week, and I may have to go back just for the tortelli.

                              The food was great and our waitress was great. However, we noticed the music did not match the theme of the restaurant. We also occasionally got side tracked by the bar crew who was also busy watching the game. However, overall the food was good and my visitors enjoyed the food.

He gave us great recommendations for every step of the meal. 4 of us ordered something different and all got to taste eachothers. Would recommend everything we tried.

                              My daughter took 8 friends there for her 18th birthday. Service was great. They were not treated any differently because they were “younger”. They enjoyed it very much. The server and hostesses made it very easy for me to run in and pay the bill.

                              We came here for a friend's birthday and loved it! We got the meat and cheese board as an appetizer. I had the spinach and ricotta tortelli and it was amazing!! Very happy with our experience and the birthday girl loved it!

                              Great location and classy twist on Italian. Indoor and outdoor seating are great. The hostess was very accommodating to our party size change. She worked with staff to make sure we could still sit outside after adding two people to our reservation at the last minute. The only issue was our server who wasn't as accommodating as you'd expect after the hostess' assistance.

                              This was our second visit to Dolce. The first visit several weeks ago was outstanding. Everyone including myself absolutely raved about their meal. Pasta was some of the best. We had a special occasion to celebrate so we chose to return to Dolce. There were four of us and everyone loved their meal except for me. I asked my server for his recommendation for something spicy. I told him I wanted really spicy. His recommendation was not spicy at all. Everyone in the group agreed. The appetizers and the desert was wonderful. We will go back but I will be more emphatic about exactly what I am looking for in something spicy.

                              Such a great place to eat with incredible food, satisfying drinks, and friendly, thoughtful servers. We have two small children, and our server, Mel, and the entire staff made our children and us feel welcome. We sat outside on the beautiful, long patio with trees, a breeze, and great music. We had a Caesar salad, pizza, and bolognese, and each one was absolutely perfect. We cannot say enough about all of it. Thank you... we look forward to our next visit.
