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

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.

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!

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

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.

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!
