    Food and drinks were great for the price (especially the drinks). The ambience was nice as well. The tables were a little too close together, however (even the waitress had trouble squeezing in between the tables of two parties sometimes). Would definitely dine there again soon and likely request some of the tables in the back specifically (which offered more privacy).

    Villa Dolce always has good food, and this visit was no exception. We went on Halloween and found their choice of background music intrusive. That's unually not an issue. Desserts are worth saving room for.

    It was my first time visiting. It’s a charming place with a gelato stand in the front (which seemed very popular on a perfect August evening) and the dining room in the back. It took a while for our server to make her first appearance but after that she was great. The wine, cocktail, cheese curds, and pasta (with shrimp & scallops) were all wonderful. The ambiance was excellent. I’ll be back the next time I’m in town.

    Birthday and guest from out of town. My family has lived Villa Dolce for the last 14 years it’s been our go to for celebrations. But last night was disappointing. The waiter was so busy so possibly that’s why she seemed unfriendly due to being overwhelmed. But the food was underwhelmed. The eggplant Parmesan was not good no light breading or mozzarella, bland. The crème brûlée was burnt with thick custard not creamy and light.

    We are regulars, as Villa is one of our favorite spots. That said, the service to start was non-existent. We were seated and then sat for at least 15-20 minutes before anyone greeted us. I understand busy and being short-staffed. What I don’t understand is not acknowledging us, saying hello and I’ll be right with you. This would make all the difference in the world. As always, the food & wine were perfection.
