The dinner was very good. As usual, the pizzas are excellent. My grandchildren also enjoyed the calzone, the sparkling soda and the gelato!!! The only thing I think should be fixed is the noise level in the room, difficult to talk. Otherwise, a very good experience

We love the calamari and the salads are always a perfect way to start dinner. I haven't been to a restaurant that serves the diverse selection we are offered here. The service is outstanding. It truly is one of our very favorite spots to gather. I just wish it was open on Sundays!

Girls night. Was a great time with the girls. The food was mostly a hit. The pizza special was missing a bit of flavor, but the drinks were good and the gelato dessert was delicious.

Villa Dolce is a family run restaurant that delivers exceptional service, food and excitement. The gourmet pizza is the best in town. The seafood specials are my favorite. The pasta is prepared by a kitchen that knows its pasta. Enjoy.

Charming neighborhood gem, offering delicious food and exceptional service. Perfect for a date or when you want to dine out with friends. Ask for one of the cocktail tables if you want an intimate dining experience. Be careful when ordering, though; the portions are large, and if you over-order then you won't have room for desert. That would be a shame, because their deserts are heavenly!

We were hoping to enjoy Villa Dolce but found the food to be mediocre and the seating to be a bit cramped and uncomfortable. They offered to box up our leftovers but then forgot to bring them back to us. Disappointed and won't recommend or return.

On a blustery snowy night we could not have had a more enjoyable evening with friends, good service and uniformly perfect food. it was a celebration so we also shared several amazing desserts. Thanks to chef, staff and everyone for a truly fine evening.

We made reservations and got there about 5 minutes late. Not a problem. Really friendly waitress! She took our drink order and was back in no time. We were ready to order. Food came out quickly, nice presentation and of course it tasted great. If you want a go to place for good Italian food, try them, you will love it.

The wild mushroom pizza was superb as were the black raspberry bellinis that we ordered with it. The desserts that followed were phenomenal. Villa Dolce will definitely be on my list of places to dine the next time I'm in Middleton.

Mac and chees superb. Roasted asparagus was so woody, that only very tips were edible.
Noise level was extreme.

Solid Italian restaurant - food was good quality. Some fun cocktails. Layout of a couple of the two-person tables is awkward, with chair backs too close to each other. Kids are welcome there, so if you're looking for a kid-free zone, not so much (but these are reasonably civilized children - not feral mutants from Chuckie Cheese.) I would return for an after-work meal. We had the gnocchi special with broccoli and sausage - quite delicious.
