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.

The service was bad. Also, the food was not delicious. Thus, there were so many ants on the top of the table.

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.

We were here for the Miami Marathon and made this our pre-race meal stop. The food was delicious, the waiter was very fun, the scenery was great - it IS South Beach, and the portions were great! We will be back on another visit to town!

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.😩

Love Dolce! No sorry it left Atlanta. Miami location is fabulous and al fresco dining under trees is beautiful. Had to ask for water, ask for pepper on salad, no cheese offered on pasta...service is not fab at Miami. Also auto-grat 18% and then present a check with a Tip Line with. No notification that 18% has already been charged. But food makes up for it.

Great food. I had the lobster ravioli. My wife had the seafood pasta. Great ambience. I feel the meal was a bit pricey. $100 for two people and no drinks.

Food was well prepared and delicious. Add to the fact service is efficient and friendly .
Once you are regular you are recognized and the staff gave out large group a complimentary appetizer, a nice gesture that will ensure a return!

It was New Years Eve. We were dressed because we had a party. The other patroness looked ratty. Tee shirts flip flops, etc... Our server was rough around the edges. It’s just not a classy upscale restaurant. It’s cheap. We were really disappointed.
