Caffe Dolce Ratings and Reviews

While I always enjoy eating here, the noise level can be quite high. The night I dined there it was particularly loud, and I had to find myself almost shouting to be heard by my dining partners (none of whom have difficulty hearing). It was a particularly busy night, and it took us 40 minutes to receive our wine (they were out of the first bottle that I ordered and had to go to the cellar for the second). The food was quite good, as usual.

A nice, quiet evening dinner was had with my wife here last night. Elegant, candlelit tables dominated the scene about 5:30 last night. My wife had the Caesar salad with several glasses of their rose. I had the duck confit pizza with two glasses of Chianti. Tiramisu gelato for me for dessert! Yum! The food was divine, with great service by Jerica! $70 all in, with a decent, 20% + tip.

We live in Spokane Wash and always make a point of eating here whenever we are in Missoula - we love the atmosphere besides the food - it is so obvious to us the care with which this place was put together, from the architecture to the food - all so special!

We eat here fairly regularly. The food is always good. On this occasion the service was friendly but painfully slow. Taking over an hour to receive our main meal and no apology or communication for the delay reason.

I was there with a very special guest who was on her way to the opera and though we showed up a 5pm sharp for the dinner menu: I was disappointed and I am a regular. I wanted to have her opinion on the Prochutto Fig Pizza. Well it was served cold, with all the toppings cold, including the meat and cheese and though we are both polite people who knew we were not being food poisoned or overcharged, had we had more time the entree would have been send back. It seriously tasted as if it had been sitting out for at least a day without refrigeration. We knew that was not the case so we ate it but the last time I ordered that menu item it was fresh, hot a delicious. I expected a higher standard of food and was embarrassed because I know my friend felt the same. We did not talk about it, but I thought someone should be informed.

They have a new chef, so there's some excellent new dishes. But they've kept some of the old favorites. It was a Saturday night so it was busy (as expected), but our server seemed a little too swamped, and service was only moderate. She was very friendly, but just seemed like she had too many tables. We will be back.

Have always loved Dolce's roasted chicken. This time around it came in a different preparation (with a cream sauce) that I found a lot less delicious. That sort of thing happens a lot with Dolce, I find. (Squid-ink pasta as now served doesn't even resemble what used to be served at Dolce.) Also, favorite items have a way of disappearing from the menu. One thing that's predictable is price-creep.

As usual our meal at Caffe Dolce scored!! I would eat here every night is that was possible.
The warm freshly baked bread just melted in our mouth, and my pasta so tender and flavorful. Some of the best pasta I have had.
We love this place and will continue coming back.

The food quality is very good. My husband's plate however was a little empty; way too much plate on show. It was a petit filet with a mushroom and green side that was smaller than the small steak so not much to eat. The decor is lovely but we don't go very often because it's always too noisy. House wine Sangiovese was delicious and good value.

Brought 2 friends at the end of a long weekend. We truly enjoyed every bite. Unfortunately, our server was distracted toward the end of the meal and we were left waiting for our check for several minutes, with no water or wine to sip on. It detracted from the overall enjoyment because we were so tired.

We have a filthy place here, italian ambeiaunce is a ten. Food here is great, portian size could be upped, but in the end who doesnt like a great lamb burger. They give water away here like its free, oh wait it is free. But what would be nice if sparkling water is free as well, if your trying to put on an italian theme in the middle of rustic montana landscape.

This was our last dinner in Montana before we headed home to St. Louis. We were celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary on this trip. It was A Friday night but we were still accommodated to sit outside on a beautiful night. The food was amazing and our waitress couldn't have been more delightful. When she found out we were celebrating our anniversary, she offered us a gelato dessert. It was the perfect end to a wonderful Montana week. If we ever get back to Missoula, Caffe Dolce will be our first stop.

It appears that great effort was made to create a high-quality Italian environment, from the elegant ceiling down. The menu displays a wide choice of chef-prepared foods, and the staff are enthusiastic and pleasant. A treasure in Missoula!
