Food was so good and service was so attentive that we could overlook the high noise level. It was raining, so everything on the front porch was closed up tight. Had it been nice out, it would have been more open and less noisy.

Four of the diners had not been there before. They loved the oceanfront atmosphere, and we were seated at a corner table with 180-degree views! Everyone enjoyed their food -- chicken parm sandwiches, chicken milanese salads, raviolis and meatballs. The group was Italian, which is always a good judge of Italian restaurant. I made a reservation and they were ready for us when we arrived. Our waiter, whose name I did not get but he has been working there a long time, has perfect timing and memorizes everything -- amazing. Loved it and thanks!

The restaurant was way too packed to the point that it was overwhelmingly loud. We made reservations a month in advance not thinking they would over book tables. The staff and kitchen could not keep up with such large crowds, the wait time for food was so long, food quality was awful and orders were wrong! My sister ordered the steak special and what came out TWICE from the kitchen was completely different than described. How could someone mistake blue cheese vs mushrooms on a steak?! Will not be returning.

Not from music, but from the other guests in the restaurant. Next time we're in the area, we will definitely go back.

We were in and out in an hour with having appetizers drinks and a meal. Tables are a little close and we had 2 in our party and then when the group of 6 sat next to us it was hard to hear each other. Overall it was great. Just would have enjoyed it more if those 2 things were better.

They seated us in the sister restaurant next door, La Terrazzo which I don’t like. Trattoria like instead of the more upscale experience in La Dolce. Very disappointed

I highly recommend ordering an appetizer and an entree and paying the plate sharing charge OR know you will have enough food for at least 2 if not 3 meals. We were so happy with the food and the ambiance, we will look forward to our next trip to Belmar to eat here again!

Food was good but prices are more a reflection on the location.
