Contemporary American
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 doesnt 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.

Was recommended by a friend who went to school with owner Greg’s wife. We sat outside on a lovely night. I ordered the Dover Sole - it was so good I will be back real soon for it again. Not too many restaurants offer Dover sole. Greg visited our table and said everything is fresh and local when possible. Praise to the chef. The sole was to die for. My adult grandson had the short rib dish and he loved it. Prices were moderate. My drink was delicious too. Everything from the food, ambiance, drinks, friendliness and location was right on. I would highly recommend Dolce in Westmont.

The food was incredible! We ate outside at 6:30 on a Saturday and it was surprisingly quiet. We didn't try the brick oven pizza, but they all looked and smelled fantastic. I love that they have local beer on tap and they source their food locally. I highly recommend the scallop appetizer, panko chicken & beet salad. My husband has been raving about the Chicken Parm for DAYS. Everything was fresh & delicious. Can't wait to go back.

Lovely evening outdoors at Dolce. Love the chorizo toast, with perfectly ripe avocado. We tried different entrees this visit; we were pleased with the pork chop and the spaghetti with shrimp. Outdoor seating is comfortable...not the most glamorous scenery, but nicely spaced, and comfortable. Thanks

Very nice outside dining atmosphere. Attentive staff, good food and drink. It began to rain while we were there and the owner made every effort to accommodate us considering pandemic guidelines. We would go back on a regular.

I love this little restaurant that always has the best quality ingredients. Their thin crust pizzas are wonderful with unique toppings. Our server , and I’m sorry I forgot her name, was very thoughtful and kind. I hope people try their food. The owners always come out and talk with you. Please frequent our small business owners.

It’s the perfect little intimate setting for date night or a wine night with friends. The service is always awesome and the food is to-die-for. I would highly recommend the chicken Parmesan or the pork chop!

Super loud and hard to hear. Waiter table assignment seemed to be all over the place as he didn’t seem attentive to our table when our drinks were low, when we were ready to order, or pay our check.

This is the second or third time I’ve made a reservation at Dolce, using Open Table, that I’ve put down that we’re celebrating a birthday. The server never seems to acknowledge that. Wondering if they read the comments on the reservation form??
It also took a long time for our server to clear empty drink glasses:(

My husband and I visited Dolce for the first time over Valentine's Day weekend. All of the food was good, we liked everything, but it wasn't amazing. The service was great, friendly and attentive. Our server comped us our dessert when it took a little while to come out. Wonderful wine selection and I had a red wine flight that I really enjoyed. My favorite part was the ambiance. It's a cozy spot but not crowded; lively but not loud. Perfect for dinner with friends or date night. We'll definitely be back, especially since it's so close to home.

My husband and I went there on the recommendation of a friend who moved close by. We went early at 5:00pm and the food was delicious! Our waitress was wonderful. We will be going back again, as the menu has so many great dishes to go back for. Our new favorite!

The restaurant was completely full on this Saturday night so there was maximum cooking happening.
The exhaust fans were not able to keep up with all the exhaust because we could smell it and our eyes were stinging. Maybe the exhaust system wasn't on high?

Nice Friday night dinner at Dolce. Pizzas were outstanding, but they all came out at different times so some people were finished with dinner before others were served:(

Nice little restaurant that we have occasionally visited. Food is great, prepared just inside the bar area. Drinks are very tasty. Our only concern is that the inside ventilation could be better as our clothes smell of smoke when we arrive home. Staff is friendly and accommodating.

Dolce is a cozy neighborhood gem. Easy access located across the tracks in Westmont. Popped in with friend for a small bite. The Lamb meatballs were tasty and Crostini perfect for dipping in the tangy tziki. The wine flight was fun, a great way to switch things up. Next visit I'll try the generous bowl of pasta or crispy pizza.
