Great food and ambiance. Very authentic Italian food. Both chef and our waiter were straight from Italy. Portion sizes were generous and prices were fair for the location of the restaurant.
Dim lighting and busy atmosphere. Only real downside was the place was really noisy. Despite that, had a great experience and would gladly return and recommend the restaurant.

Once we got passed the hostess trying to seat us at the only bad table in the house (right at the top of the stairs with zero light and in a very high traffic area) we had a spectacular evening. Amazing service by Carmine from Naples (the one in Italy). Great wine list with reasonably priced bottles as well as cellar worthy options. Out of this world caprese with warm house-made mozzarella and heirloom tomatoes. Amazing house-made pasta and decadent deserts. Gratuity was included as it is with many Miami Beach restaurants but we were happy to add extra for superb service which is rare in these circumstances. Wish we were in town longer so we could try a few more dishes.

Awesome setting , incredible food and excellent wine selection! So good we went back twice during 5 days in Miami Beach. Please go to this place and try the caprese (best we have ever had), cavatelli bolognese, Maine lobster ravioli, and the veal scalloping.

Highly recommended - if the weather is amenable and you’re in the mood for al fresco dining, definitely get one of the outdoor tables. You’re on the same block as three beautiful old Art Deco hotels — the Delano, the National and the Sagamore — and the street is vibrant (although somewhat loud!). The trees and lights make for a very romantic dinner place!

We always enjoy Dolce - delicious food and great service. They customized a risotto for us using seafood instead of short ribs and it was so good!! Yummy desserts too!

Vibrant upmarket Italian Restaurant, excellent service throughout and excellent standard of food. We had a gift card which we chose to redeem here after reading the reviews and menu, whilst the Opentable Gift Card seemed to cause a little confusion initially it was confirmed and accepted after a discussion with the manager. This was the only negative point, but did not spoil an excellent evening.
