Excellent experience!! We arrived early a bit disappointed that the menu we had seen online was not what we were given. We then found out an abbreviated menu was served until 6. Our waiter had no issues letting us stay until 6 so we could order from the full menu. Attentive service but no overly so. Excellent food!

Overall we really enjoyed our time a Dolce the night was a bit nippy and the fire tank went out and now one refilled it. Which made it a lil uncomfortable to enjoy outside dining with chilly breeze. I would still commend because staff was ON POINT with every single reservation request. Food was tasty.

We make a reservation at Dolce at The Gale Hotel every time we make a trip to Miami. The service is always stand out in comparison to the typical bare minimum you may see elsewhere, and it’s always nice to see many of the same faces each time we return. The food is consistently good and we’ll continue to come back and stay at the hotel for these reasons!

The food is delicious and as close to authentic Italian that I’ve had outside of Roma! Margarita pizza is fantastic (I always order to share) and the pastas and branzino are the best on the menu! Service is consistently outstanding.

Food was excellent. Service left a little bit to be desired. Waitress was perfunctory, but not terribly pleasant or friendly. When I had to pay the bill, I had to go inside the restaurant — so they could use some help in the technology department. The young man who greeted us was wonderful but the service was less than great after that. Food was excellent though.

Excellent service, good prices, and delicious food. We had the burrata and tomato app, the meatball and salami pizza, calamari, and margaritas. Everything was great. I did feel like the wine and margarita prices were a little high, but it’s a prime spot on South Beach so that’s expected. But the food was reasonable. Request outside seating and arrive on time. Very popular.

I don’t know if the air conditioner was broken or just inadequate. Either way, it was uncomfortably hot during dinner. Along with restaurant guests at surrounding tables, we complained to no avail. Until this situation is fixed, go elsewhere.

They should be more receptive to substitution requests. I left an entire half plate of French fries on the table since they would not accept my request for a side salad instead.

We will definitely be going back! The dining room was really nice with great ambiance. The food was superb. We started with the Eggplant and Zucchini Parmigiana. It was soo good, we were tempted to order a second. The Tagliolini ai Gamberi was delicious, fresh made pasta, and a sauce that had us cleaning the plate with the table bread. The Salmon was cooked to perfection and paired with great flavors. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, our server even surprised us with a Congratulations dessert on the house to celebrate my pregnancy. Made us feel extra special and a great way to end our dinner.

This was our first visit to Dolce Italian. It's a fun restaurant. Nice ambiance: dim lighting and comfortable seating. Service was adequate; nothing special. The food was good, but not exceptional. For appetizers my wife had the tuna tartare and liked it. I had the seared octopus with broccolini and fingerling potatoes. I'm an octopus fanatic and I'd give this dish a C+. For our main courses my wife had the seafood linguine. She thought it was OK, but a bit too heavy. I had the veal scallopini with mushroom sauce, which I enjoyed. However, I thought it was odd how the only side was a large mound of mashed potatoes. It should have been a much smaller portion of potatoes with maybe a cooked vegetable. The dishes were definitely oversalted; we discovered this after dinner as our feet felt like they were swelling up. At this point, I wouldn't recommend the restaurant. However, we noticed pizzas being delivered to other tables and they looked delicious. We might have to visit again to try the pizzas before giving this place a definitive thumbs up or down.

Service was so good and restaurant was great but we found this on yelp with such a high rating and the food was so disgusting. 3 out of 4 of us left our food. Was so disappointing especially after 4 days of amazing meals around town. Hope this was just a bad night in the kitchen.😩
