As we arrived in Miami late, we reluctantly let the concierge at 1 Hotel SB make a dinner reservation for us at Dolce on our 1st night in SB. FYI...we’ve not had the best success with concierge recommendations.
What a pleasant surprise; great food, service, ambience and people watching.
With all the SB restaurants that we’ve eaten in before, we ate at Dolce 3 times in 1 week!

We had a wonderful dinner at Dolce. We were a group of nine and they sat us in an almost private area. It was awesome. We could all talk and hear each other. The food was very good and the service was as well. We had a couple of pizzas to start (among 9) and each had a entree. I loved (loved) the spinach ricotta ravioli with brown butter sage sauce. OMG, I still think about it. The portions are good sized so we never got to dessert. That was too bad. The wine list is also good especially for Italian wines. If you are in South Beach, this is another really good restaurant to visit. It is on our list of favorites.

Dolce has become our go to restaurant before concerts at the New World Center that is only two blocks away. The food is very good and the servers make sure you get out in time for the performance. We returned after the performance and even though they were very crowded, since we had been there for dinner, they made room for us to have coffee and dessert. We will be back again.

Nice setting outside. Shrimp pasta had 5 small shrimp and the pasta was totally overcooked.
The server said it was because it is fresh pasta. Poor, insulting excuse. Gave a comp dessert to
make up for pasta. Lots of great choices for Italian on South Beach. Good people watching on
Collins Ave. We went there because it was close to Fillmore theatre. Next time will go to Sylvanos.

Lovely restaurant in South Beach, indoor or outdoor seating. We were greeted by a very smiley receptionist who sat us down straight away in a cozy part of the restaurant. Then this is were the 1 star was lost, we waited for a while for our menu, really until I asked for it, I waited again to get drinks, and to order our food. Once our order was placed, the food came in good timing and was very nice. Just get the spotted service under control and you will be in good shape.

It’s often said that New York has the best restaurants, being a native New Yorker I do agree. DOLCE CHANGED THE WAY I THINK! Delicious, delicious, delicious! I had dinner Thursday evening and went back for lunch on Friday!!! I can go on and on of how great it is, you need to go and taste for yourself! You cannot be disappointed with all that is offered. Go, relax and enjoy!

We sat outside then ambiance is nice. The service was just ok we had to ask the waitress multiple times to bring bread or ice for our
Drinks. We ordered the tomato cucumber avocado salad it was delicious. We also ordered linguini and the veal which was ok.

Cute place for a date night. Drove 30 mins to eat here and was not disappointed. Service was a little slower than I would have liked but coming from New York that is usually always an issue. Food was delicious and staff was friendly. Ambiance was perfect for what we were looking for for the night. Would definitely go back the next time we’re in south beach and would recommend to friends.

Busy area on south beach with so so service. We were seated promptly and friendly without a drink menu. We got One when our first waiter returned. We didn’t get the beet salad we ordered. Second waiter helped a bit more. Third waiter was on the ball. Never had three different waiters before. We were told twice they would “bring us some bread,” which we got in the middle of our entrees. Didn’t get charged for food we didn’t get thankfully. Sea bass was tasty but costly. Spaghetti w meatballs was very tasty. I would probably return for the food but the service was kind of unusual. Overall the folks were friendly and helpful, water was regularly refilled, just a bit unorganized. Food was excellent, slightly pricey.

The restaurant was filled with families with small children which made it a little loud. The food was good but not great. Our waiter was aloof but polite. I would try it again just in case we were there on an off night.

Second visit in the week. Still great food. Delicious house made pasta is worth a try. Meatballs with polenta was delicious. I enjoyed my caprese salad but liked the version in previous years when it was a large ball warmed in the center. This year it was sliced. Still tasty but not as great. Still a staple visit when in Miami.

This has almost five stars for a good reason the food was amazing. We had meatballs with polenta and eggplant parmigiana for appetizer the meatballs were very overpriced but delicious. We each had a pasta dish not one disappointed. Ravioli, bolognese and peas and prosciutto delicious. The deserts did not disappoint either there gelato and Italian cheesecake worth every penny. This place is a must go when in Miami Beach

Been here several times and food and service consistently good.
HOWEVER on this night my group wanted to sit outside.
All was quiet until "LIVE" music played next to our table that drowned out conversation with blaring speakers, made worse by an inept singer who could not sing! Add to this the ambient screeching of cars on the street on this busy night made for a less than enjoyable dinner.
So if there is "LIVE" music outside opt to sit inside and spare yourself the grief.

What a treat!

We decided to try this for our anniversary and it was a great choice!

We started with the prosciutto and Burrata, as well as an arugula salad. Both were fresh, flavorful and hit the spot. We then had a pizza (Capricciosa) which was phenomenal! Great sauce and the olives went so well with the ham and artichokes!

For our main meal, we had spaghetti and meatball and pappardelle. Both were excellent and decent portion size!

We finished off the evening with chocolate cake and ricotta cheesecake and once again we loved both!

Other than the food the drinks were also delicious!

I was a little bummed out they didn't have the str pizza since it was shown on their Instagram account.

Lastly, the servers and host were all very courteous and provided excellent service!

Highly recommend if you don't mind spending money on good food!
