Contemporary American
Patio is based upon availability. Simple, Rustic, yet Refined, anything but typical. Walk into Dolce and you're welcomed by the aromas from the open kitchen. You might notice the music, its contemporary, it's rock & roll, R&B, or soul. You'll definitely notice the wines, displayed on the wall like works of art. There are no white table cloths, no dabbing the corners of your mouth, no pomp, but lots of circumstance. And perhaps the only reason you noticed the aforementioned is because you haven't tasted our food. That's when the music fades into the background.
Our house chefs are proud to be 'dismantling' the dining experience, replacing it with a sophisticated yet relaxed evening that doesn't break the bank. It's the best of both worlds, yet the food is our finest accomplishment to date. Inspired by whats great with a deep appreciation for each ingredient; grown local sustainable farms, or produced and harvested by like-minded individuals. Dolce is rarely the same place twice.

    Gnocchi with burrata was very good. Alfredo sauce was delicious. The burrata unfortunately was ice cold which tempered the dish. Added the shrimp which was done perfectly. Had the lava cake which was a bit disappointing. Came to the table nice and warm . Cut open expecting oozing chocolate and found , Well, more cake. So no lava. Service was very good. Attentive to the table and anticipated our needs. Will try again. Maybe just an off night for the kitchen

    Food was excellent, service was very good and it is a very nice place. Only bad thing was they had a musician playing and it was difficult to have conversations with the people at our table. He was good but need to tone down the music. We will definitely go back.

    Fantastic experience. First time at the new location. The front is beautiful, very high end and more formal experience. The middle is very bar like for casual dining and personal favorite the outdoor area. Outside could be both formal or casual. The food was delicious as always and the service and staff were as kind as can be.

    We had the Rigatoni Norcina and the Chicken Florentine dinners. Hubby and I agree they were both absolutely delicious. It was our first time there and will definitely return with friends. The server was amazingly knowledgeable of the menu and wine offerings. The owner Steve came to our table to check on our satisfaction. Overall a great meal and service.

    It was a good experience. Food was pretty good. Nice presentation. Not too busy or loud. Server was pleasant but not overly friendly. Sometimes it felt like we were more of a bother... maybe because we didn't order drinks, which should never make a difference...

    Welcoming and friendly staff. Comfortable former outside room, well heated. Quiet. Great atmosphere. And the food is delicious with difficult choices. Everything sounds so good we had a tough choices deciding. Friendly staff had reasons for each choice and then they “delivered”! Great food. Soup, lobster bisque, was lusciously creamy and delicious. I chose the pasta Carbonara and it was served at the “right” temperature with abundant pancetta and lovely cracked pepper and Parmesan cheese. Creamy and so delicious. My wife requested the halibut with tomatoes and roasted potatoes. She raved about the flavor and texture. Congratulations to Steve and his chef. Becky was knowledgeable and attentive and friendly too. Thanks. We’ll certainly return to this neighborhood gem.

    First time visiting at new location. Our table of three were the only customers at the time with a reservation at 7pm on a Thursday. Server was attentive and enjoyable to chat with. We had the mushroom toast (epic!) and calamari for appetizers. I had the pappardelle with short ribs which was very good. Would gladly recommend as the food was tasty and of high quality. Thanks!

    Worst restaurant I've been to in a very long time. The maitre d’ was almost completely unintelligible, in part because the room is extremely loud. The chef intensely over-salts everything and tries to pass off what appears and has the texture and toughness of stew meat as short ribs in the Pappardelle with Short Rib. The Mushroom Toast appetizer was NOT toasted, and I'd swear I was eating anchovies the sauce was so overly salted. The Dover Sole was also terrible. Again so much salt that it was uncomfortable (and unhealthy) to consume. If the prices were a quarter what the establishment charges it would still be a waste of money. They should stop trying to be a "refined" restaurant and stick to their simple salads and flatbreads (thin-crust pizzas) that are hard screwup in the kitchen and what apparently get adequate reviews. My recommendation: stay away from this place; find any other restaurant for your evening out because you're not likely to enjoy this place. (12/3/2022)

    Normally you find a place that does something well: cocktails, appetizers, entrees or desserts. At Dolce, they hit the quad-fecta. Everything on the menu was excellent. Service was great, striking the perfect balance between personal and professional—attentive without being overly so, friendly without being too familiar. We had a great date night anniversary out by ourselves. We had tried the old location a couple times as walk-ins and couldn’t get in. This was a Monday, booked ahead and it wasn’t too crowded. It is an easy 5-iron away from the old location. Can’t wait to try the patio at the new place! Coming back real soon.

    The pizza was cool, not hot , when it arrived,which impacted the enjoyment and flavor. The food was average, and the place was very noisy. After 7pm when music started it seemed like a young-person's nightclub in the bar area and outside. The restaurant floor didn't look clean when we arrived and the restaurant had just opened near 5pm on a Saturday night. Our wait-person (Rebecca) was excellent.

    Nice overall ambience but it was cold when I first arrived to an empty restaurant at 5:00. After some hot tea and a full dining room it was better. Tortilla chips and artichoke dip appetizer was very good. Dishes came out to our table of five in three waves and I didn't appreciate that. They were "waiting for the gluten free pasta." There was probably at least a five -minute lag between both deliveries. Caesar salad had very gritty small croutons, like gravel. Carbona dish with bacon didn't seem to go over too well with the added egg. Gnocchi and scallop dishes were good. Creme brûlée dessert was very creamy.

    We enjoyed a fun midweek dinner out at Dolce. We loved sitting at a high top table in the energetic bar area. Great service, and half price bottles of wine on Wednesdays! I’m not a fan of wedge salad, but our server offered to switch the iceberg lettuce out for spinach and that was delicious! We learned that Dolce recently had their pizza oven installed in their new location so we ordered 2 pizzas- a white cheddar and mushroom- so good-and a slightly spicy one, Amatriciana, which my husband really enjoyed.

    I hadn’t been to this new Dolce location and was anxious to try it. What a pleasant surprise that the food is still as good as at the old restaurant a couple of blocks away—but with a much larger and equally warm dining experience. We were greeted when we entered the restaurant and shown to our table for two. Our server, Heather, promptly took our orders for a cocktail and wine. (I must say that Dolce’s wine list by both glass and bottle is the best I’ve seen in the area for a long time. I highly recommend the French pinot noir Domaine Giraud 2020, which was a wonderfully light but complex pinot noir bursting with flavors!) We skipped the very tempting appetizers and small plates and went immediately to the entrees: My friend had scallops with garlic risotto with a light lemon cream sauce. The scallops were perfectly grilled and the flavors of garlic and lemon in the risotto and sauce were subtle and wonderful. I had the halibut Psari Plaki, which was slightly overcooked but all so good when accompanied with grape tomatoes in a tomato and herb sauce served with Greek style potatoes. The flavors were bursting! After dinner we went into the bar area to enjoy a great band playing in the covered and heated outdoor patio. If you haven’t seen the bar and patio area, give yourself a treat. This one is bright and light but warm and cozy—very much welcomed as the cooler temps have hit us—and a live band is always a treat! After we left, one of the owners, Steve, called me (having my name and number through my Open Table reservation) to let me know that one of the staff found my friend’s wallet. How wonderful is that—to know you can rely on the staff and owner of a local establishment to contact you and return a wallet intact with credit card and money?!!! I will definitely return to Dolce in Westmont to try some of their other enticing menu offerings, as well as the live entertainment and lively atmosphere! It truly was a delicious and fun evening!

    Like the new location, but the food was just okay. The ricotta appetizer was delightful, but the Greek style main course was disappointing. Too much acidity to the tomatoes. Cocktails were very good. Would come back for those!
