As always, Great food. Great ambiance. Very accompanying.
First time here and will not be the last. Made you feel like home. Great food and exceptional service.
Best italian resturant in North Carolina. All hand made fresh pastas. The gnocchi were some of the best I’ve ever had. Competes with little Italy NYC
Our first time here this weekend Aug 1, will not be our last visit to this gem of a restaurant. Very attentive staff, smiles all around made for a pleasant night out. The food was exceptional! They have new returning customers with our family.
Our dinner was over the top! Service was outstanding!
Can’t wait to return! A GEM of a place!
Food is excellent! Rita is from Italy and makes fresh pasta every day. Our favorite place!
My favorite Italian cuisine
Went for a birthday dinner and had a fabulous experience!!! The food was great and service outstanding
The food was great and service was amazing . I will come back soon.
Love Dolce Osteria! One of my favorite places in Charlotte! I highly recommend this authentic Italian restaurant.
Absolutely amazing. Went for my mother’s birthday and from the service to the food everything was phenomenal. Will definitely be back.
We hadn't been out for dinner since all the COVID-19 stuff happened but we read lots of reviews saying that Dolce took all the necessary precautions. They did not disappoint. There was hand sanitizer at the door so that we could sanitize our hands. All the staff wore masks. They practiced social distancing by only setting certain tables. And the food was excellent- as always. This is the best Italian food in the entire Charlotte region. We will be back again soon.
Place is all around excellent... I will bring my family here again and recommend to others!
Amazing food and service and gave us a free dessert to celebrate our Anniversary! The freshest cannoli I ever had.
Delicious food, great service. I would definitely recommend.

A gem of a restaurant!
One of my favorite local restaurants. Reasonably priced and delicious Italian food, professional wait staff, welcoming and cozy atmosphere. Especially enjoy the housemade cheesecake and suggest Tuesday evenings for the gnocchi. Support local!
Dolce always delivers. Great food, enjoyable ambience. Definitely recommend!
We closed the place it was so wonderful.
Great service and fabulous food! We enjoyed everything!
Best Italian food in Charlotte. Homemade pasta is perfection. Outstanding service every time. This place is a true Charlotte treasure.
Great food and great service.
Great food, as always. Caprese, desserts, and regular pastas were excellent. House special was good without being great, and bread was a little off this time, but otherwise fantastic as always. Great service. Best Italian in Charlotte
Love Dolce! ❤️
Food and service are always good. The owner puts her heart into this business and it shows. Always nice to come here.
Amazing food - Family friendly atmosphere - We are regulars!
Pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious. Fresh pasta made all the difference. Service was quick and staff super friendly. Will be going again!
Wonderful experience! Several people recommended and we couldn’t wait to try, so we couldn’t wait to try it. Make sure the try the homemade pasta. Rita - who makes the pasta and baked goods - is a true gem and rounds out the whole experience.
Amazing food, atmosphere, servers! Look forward to going again soon!
Excellent homemade pasta served in a cozy room by courteous waiters. Love the Italian wine selection.
Always always the BEST!!!
This is a great place for some great food. Everything we’ve ever had has been amazing. Not really a “classy” looking place but food and service makes it classy.
Seated at exact reservation time
Food was awesome
Service was good but we did ask for a few things like extra bread and plate but never got
Other than that our first experience was great and we will definitely be returning
Food was absolutely amazing. Fresh, authentic, and delicious!! Started with beans and bread, and went all throughout. My only gripe is wait staff was stretched or kitchen hurt them and drinks doubled my bill. A special was 25 and a glass of wine was 15???
Truly could not have been a more perfect evening. We had been telling friends about our new favorite Italian treat in town! They felt the same. They were completely blown away by how amazing everything was from the bread, to the salad, to the pasta! They described their experience as an A+++! We were thrilled they enjoyed the whole experience as much as we did. Can’t wait to get back there soon!
Best Italian family and their delicious food.
