Great time! Gnocchi was wonderful as was the ravioli. Service was timely and friendly, great Italian option
Being a true Italian I can tell you that the food is authentic and prepared in a rustic style. Home made pastas, sauces, deserts, apps... Rita and Georgia are the managers and they are the most caring loving people you will ever know. They make sure that your visit to Dolce is special and memorable. I highly recommend Dolce and is my favorite italian restaurant In NC!!!

Best restaurant in Charlotte
Wonderful meal and service! Great place!!
Amazing. Everything is homemade. Best Italian food this side of the pond.
Everything was OUTSTANDING!! Will definitely be back 🙌
We have been dining here for years. The Buratta and Amatricianna are simply delicious. The specials never disappoint either. Consistently good service.
Great choice if you are looking for a Italian restaurant that truly honor traditional recipes and at the right price. Ran by the family, they make you feel you at somewhere in Meridional Italy. Service is friendly and profesional. Certainly, we are going back!
Wonderful food. We had the bruchetta appetizer that is always delicious and the chicken parm and ravioli. The service was excellent. Never disappointed at Dolce.
The food was amazing and the service was top notch. The owners are super friendly and the staff are so well trained.
This little restaurant does not disappoint. I was a bit unsure based on the pictures but the reviews were great so i decided to try it with my husband on New Year’s Eve. The service was so excellent and friendly, and the food was AMAZING. True authentic Italian. I got the vodka pasta with chicken and my husband got the special which was a veal with risotto. Both were delicious. The bread they serve is also good. The only let down was the cheesecake, it was okay just not the best i have had. Also not worth the $9. But otherwise this place was great!
Chris was an awesome server
Very welcoming, exciting to meet Rita who makes the homemade pasta each day.
FOOD IS EXELENT LIKE SERVICE. I Would recommend Dolce Ristorante
Delicious, wonderful vodka sauce with linguine great pasta
Dolce is our favorite Italian restaurant, offering an extensive selection of authentic, delicious Italian meals, a great wine list and outstanding service. They also allow BYOB with a moderate corkage fee.
Incredible food with friendly neighborhood service. Everything we tried was done absolutely perfect and the entire staff followed protocols to make for an enjoyable visit during these times. Will definitely be back! Thank you Dolce Team!
Wonderful food and the staff had us feeling very much at home.
Fabulous From beginning to end
Great food, great service, great ambiance
Excellent time at Dolce. It’s authentic Italian food at a family owned restaurant with great service.
The food and service were fantastic! Can’t wait to go back. I would highly recommend dining here.
Great dining experience! Rita is an absolute joy to talk with!
Nicest people, best service, amazing food. Unbeatable
I've always enjoyed going to Dolce. I've been there many times. The food is ALWAYS delicious. Some of my favorites are the Fungi appetizer and the Chicken Milanese entree. They have a great wine selection too.
Coming from New York into North Carolina it’s hard to find good Italian food but this place is by far the best around all the fresh pastas are amazing no matter what sauce you order it has that straight from Italy taste The gnocchi is by far the best I’ve had ever. Everything is homemade even the bread A must place to eat at I got 2-4 times a month
We love Dolce and always hope we're able to find a way to get there, both with and without our 10 yr. old son (he loves it too). The food is always fabulous, regardless of what we order. Love it!
We enjoyed everything about our dinning experience at Dolce. The staff were over the top in caring for our needs, going far above and beyond to make our meal amazing. The food was authentic Italian excellence. The deserts and cappuccinos were great. In fact the best cappuccinos we have found in Charlotte.
An absolute GEM!
Love the restaurant. I will be back for another date night
It was a wonderful experience!
Waiter was not that good . My food was cold had to send back .
This was my wife and I’s first visit based upon feedback she had read and it lived up to its billing. Rita was fabulous and the food was obviously prepared fresh. The price is such that this will not only be a destination for special occasions but will become part of our regular rotation. The only disappointment...that it took us this long to discover Dolce Ristorante!
LOVE Dolce. Food is homemade and always excellent. We go here weekly.
The management & staff were amazing, the food remarkable... a must!!
