Needed to carboload for IM Madison 70.3 and a short 10 minute ride from the host hotel we were treated to the freshest pasta around. Great dishes, fair prices, and friendly staff. Outside seating on a beautiful night was a plus.
This is a lovely, small, Italian restaurant. Although it is not really a place that caters to large groups, I chose it for a special family occasion because of a family member who struggles with hearing in large noisy restaurants. We were seated at a long table with booth seating on one side. The service was impeccable. Everyone - from a picky 12 year old to an older guest used to very high end dining - was very happy with with their choice. Server suggestions were spot on. We were served attentively but never felt rushed. I was very pleased and recommend highly!
Always good service and a good meal.
Food are is always very good! One of our favorite places to go.
2nd visit. We were wowed both times. The delicious food accompanied great service.
Fun place in improved Downtown Middleton - Good neighborhood vibe on Friday night.
Went with family on Friday of UW Graduation weekend and all was good. Service was great. Good pizza & unique pasta dishes. Was there one other time and ate outside on a perfect evening - that was even better.
As always, the food was delicious and the ambiance wonderful. Unfortunately, it took over 25 minutes from the time we sat down until our drinks arrived. It was not the fault if our waitress—apparently the bar tender was backed up. Perhaps more bar staff would be helpful. This is a minor complaint for what is our favorite restaurant.
We drove 140 miles to sample the gelato. We were not disappointed. The gelato and our dinner were excellent!!
Food and drinks were great. We waited for our server on several occasions though. We weren’t greeted by her for at least 5 minutes. And we also had to wait for her to come check on us after we were done eating. Not the biggest deal because my wife and I weren’t in a rush and we were enjoying each others company. Overall it was a great dinner.
Nice menu selection, delicious food! Server very conscientious. Greeted in a friendly way when we entered.
We don’t go enough! Great tasting and appropriate portions. Really pleasant atmosphere and wait staff.
The food was terrific as was the service. I enjoyed pasta stuffed with butternut squash and my husband had the bolognese. We shared both and agreed they were delicious as were the cocktails. It is cozy with great ambience. The dessert case looked great too. Next time I’ll save room for the cannolis or gelato. We will definitely be coming back.
Love everything about Villa Dolce!
Great service and good food--pasta's, seafood, pizza's and salads.
This is one of our favorite places and it never disappoints. Service is friendly, regardless of how busy, food is great - from pizza to ravioli, to calzones - and we always have a good time.
The pizzas are excellent!
Very tasty pizza with fresh ingredients and the service was impeccable.
Villa Dolce will always deliver and never disappoint you. Food is always good and the menu is interesting.
The staff is friendly and the place is cute with small rooms which makes it cozy.
Excellent service, the entrees, especially the daily specials are delicious, good salads, tasty deserts. Try it once, you'll be back!
We have been here several times. We really like the Ambiance. The food quality and variety are excellent. Service has been pretty good and not necessarily at A+ level. Road parking in Middleton on Friday evenings is terrible and we got late by 15 minutes during the last visit and missed the reservation time. If I remember correct, it was much better on Saturdays. We made a mental note to avoid dinner time on Fridays. The restaurant overall is highly recommended.
Love the retro chic decor and intimate ambience. Cocktails are creative, great wine list, food is creative and delicious. Wonderful Italian entrees but also amazing pizza selections. Their home made gelato, in an abundance of different flavors is a fun way to cap off dinner with dessert.
Most of the four of us very much liked our choices. One meal, however, had a rather uninteresting and dense sauce.
Desserts were superb and quite generous.
Nice ambience, interesting building, and good location. Overall it's great place.
Given the prices, I would expect a bit more finesse and grace by the waitress.
It was our first visit and we had an extremely great dining experience. This, considering it was busy with the Valentine's Day "holiday." Service was gracious and friendly, and the dishes we had (a mushroom pasta and a calzone) plus side salads, were delicious. We will be coming back! Thank you!
Great food. Great service
Excellent food, service and ambience. I highly recommend Villa Dolce! And, they have gelato!
Amazing food and amazing service! I have lived in the area for a few years now and this was my first chance I’ve gotten to eat here. I regret not coming in sooner!
Delicious! Love the Thai chicken pizza and the gelato!
Student celebration - a bit noisy From 1 table, also 1 server shared much too much personal info with a customer she must have known at another table next to us instead of attending to her customers.... it was awkward ... definitely not professional
Staff was super friendly. Food was enjoyable, but nothing too unique. Service was fast and efficient. Overall, a nice experience.
Nice chewy crust on the pizza, great antipasto, a great experience, we will return.
Our family enjoyed a wonderful evening together and great food. Be sure to save room for the desserts which re also excellent.
Excellent food! They have a wide and varied menu and everyone was very happy with what they got. It was a busy night so service was a good deal slower than expected but that was understandable.
One of Middleton, WI restaurant treasures, the pizza is outstanding (among the top three in the Madison area), the entrees are unusual and first rate. Antipasto plate highly recommended, great gelatos for dessert. I've been to Villa Dolce many times over the past 10 years and have never been disappointed. Great bar, too.
This restaurant is a reliable favorite! The food is delicious, the staff is professional yet fun, and the half-price-wine-bottles Wednesday is a big draw. Their pizza is the best ever. The only drawback and it’s small is that it can get loud when it’s busy.
We Enjoyed our meal. We think the seating needs improvement. The banquette is a little low for the table. We noticed other chairs around for tops also I have low seating. Otherwise the little dining rooms are adorable and fun. The food is delicious!
We had an excellent meal. The service was fast and friendly. I particularly enjoyed the cosy ambiance and low noise level
We will be back!
Didn’t get seated until 35 minutes after time of reservation, another 10 minutes before someone took our drink order. Food is decent. Very loud atmosphere, could barely talk with dinner companions.
Excellent food, and such a cozy place! We'll definitely be back!
