Caffè Dolce features fine dining with informal flare. In the heart of a historic Missoula neighborhood, Caffè Dolce features seasonal contemporary Italian menus with a focus on quality ingredients.
Dolce’s wine bar features a potent old-world-wine list, showcasing a stunning collection of artisanal wine makers from Italy, France, and Spain. The beer menu features local and regional, and worldly craft beers.

Excellent service and great food! One of our favorite places for date night!
We drove a distance to have dinner here, and as usual, the experience was first rate. The servers are adult, cider tasty, food excellent, ambiance airy and floral.
Excellent service and food! Loved the pottery display. Unique experience.
Outstanding food matched by outstanding device. The house salad is superb.
Receiving our orders took rather a long time and our server was embarrassed. Apparently a kitchen glitch.
We love the energetic atmosphere and awesome food. This is one of our neighborhood favorites.
My wife and I so enjoy dining here. The Tasin champagne is delicious and reasonable. The food (we primarily get the pasta dishes) is fresh made, with wonderful accompaniments. Gelato is a great way to end the meal. Always a wonderful dining experience.
Limited rotating menu with some regular stuff, Italian all the way, elegant presentation of food, tons of wines, gelato station. You can eat cheap or fancy, it's all great!
We particularly appreciated the personal attention of the staff. The sommelier was engaging and helpful in choosing a moderate price wine to accompany our meal. Our excellent waitress even requested the pastry chef to explain one of his creations. Overall, the meal was excellent and we will happily return.
Excellent food, service, atmosphere — as usual.
Thanks for always supporting local not for profits for dinner nights in which part of total revenue for the night goes to that not for profit. Good on you!! We will eat there often in order to support your supporting Missoula.
Everything was wonderful...although I got caffeinated coffee instead of the decaf that I had asked for. My heart was racing half the night!
We live in Bozeman and Caffe Dolce is one of our favorite restaurants to visit in Missoula! They offer wonderful GF pasta options and other entree items!! Consistently good!
Wednesday’s Pie night deal is a great value! Yummy flavors to choose from and the wine was delicious too!
Horrible service. The party of six that came in after us, ate way before the two of us got our salad. Waitress was nice enough but kind of clueless and clearly incompetent.
We love the sea salt rolls with olive oil, your house salad with sugared walnuts. My husbands new favorite is your macaroni and cheese. I like it too. Wish you had a few more vegetarian entrees. Love having you in our neighborhood!
Love Caffe Dolce. However, was a bit disappointed in the service this evening. We had a seasoned server and a trainee. The seasoned server was great, but when we were handed off to the trainee, she filled our glasses of water and never asked how the meal was, how we were doing or if we needed anything else. I will still visit Caffe Dolce because the food is sooo good, and I know the ingredients are top shelf.
Really slow; servers attention to guests isn’t what it used to be. Lots of people in line for table and no one pays any attention. Gone downhill quickly.
We've eaten at Dolce countless times since they opened. They keep getting better. Friday night we tried the mussels and sausage appetizer and were kind of stunned how good it was. Short rib ragu is always good as is the flank steak. Dolce deserves to be mentioned among the best in Missoula.
What a gem! Food was uniformly delicious and creatively prepared and presented. Service was exceptionally attentive
They have a very diverse menu. We had appetizers of Quail and sardines and both were delicious. We each had a different past dish for the main course. The pasta was cooked perfectly and the seasoning was strong but not over powering which I like. Gelato to go for dessert for a perfect dining experience.
Great place with good vibe, great food and service
May be good for a lunch date with the girls. We had one night in Missoula and had researched extensively for a special date. My first impression upon entering wasn't good when greeted by a rude hostess then seated on top of another table. It only got worse we should've walked out.
I love Cafe Dolce. The menu is interesting and inspiring, The food is delicious, the wine and beer selection is terrific, the staff is knowledgeable, professional, and friendly, and the ambiance is always absolutely lovely.
lovely steelhead dish, highly recommend the cauliflower side dish, nice atmosphere for conversation
The gnocchi with mushrooms and truffle was excellent.
I tasted two reds to decide which to have with dinner. One of them had gone bad, which the waiter should have noticed before bringing to the table.
I really love Caffe Dolce as a neighborhood classic, and a place you can always depend on having a fun yet classy and funky ambiance. However, I am always a little disappointed with the limited dinner menu, and how overpriced it is for what you get. Food is good but usually a little oily and so many different flavors, it's hard for your pallet to process. I think I will try Brunch next time.
Generally speaking our family enjoyed the dinners. In particular my ragu was very salty and I did not finish it. We all liked our salads. Our server was attentive and pleasant. Of course she introduced herself by name, something that would be laughable anywhere else in the world.
We always try and have a meal here when in Missoula. Good service, food and very friendly staff
One of my Dolce favorites is the house salad (now almost $10, a glaring example of price creep). Have ordered it many times. This time it was tasteless, drenched in oil, lacked pecans, and also lacked the sort of delicate greens that usually make it delicious. Should have sent it back but didn't want to make a fuss. Have had this sort of experience at Dolce many times. That said, the entree was very well prepared and very tasty. Have had that experience often too.
Went to Cafe Dolce with my fiancé for dinner. The food was amazing with lots of local stuff. Our server was Jarad and he really made our night. He was fun knowledgeable and not over bearing giving us just the right amount of attention. The duck was crispy and juicy, the salads were fresh and well built, cheese plate was local and well proportioned and the wine list was eclectic and extensive. We sat in a lovely corner and had a great time together. They also have a whole different day time thing going on with a coffee shop feel. We went there also for coffee and had cinnamon brioche toast. I crave it still. Try this place you won't be disappointed.
Introduced our best friends that are new to Missoula to the short rib ragu and they loved it
We started our new year's eve celebration with Caffe Dolce's prix fixe menu. While a bit pricy by Missoula's standards, the chef's course selection, creative use of local and seasonal ingredients and artistic presentation made our meal more that worthwhile.
I've eaten at Caffè Dolce several times and enjoyed every one, but the meal I had most recently was particularly outstanding. We ordered all of the vegetable sides, along with a steak, and the food was delectable. I can't say enough about the roasted cauliflower, or the Brussels sprouts with fish sauce vinaigrette, or the mustard-glazed root veggies, or the roasted squash (which was, honestly, the best squash I've ever had). The house-made gluten-free bread is incredibly good - had I not known it was GF, I never would have guessed.
The service was of disappointing quality and quite slow. A relatively slow night and it took us 2 hours and 15 minutes to have dinner with no appetizers ordered. Found ourselves having to flag down the server multiple times.
The food was excellent and the service friendly and attentive. Atmosphere was sparkly with Christmas lights , but very high noise level made conversation amongst the four of us difficult. Definitely go there for delicious food!
The food and service have been better. The servers are much less polite and professional than in years past. As we were seated the server told us the food would be slow that night (not particularly crowed). Again, the large bottle of Perrier were out (this happens way too frequently). I hope the restaurant will return to better service and organization.
Rustic Italian with a modern appreciation of farm-to-table. Chef Adam knows what he is doing and isn't afraid to raise the bar when it comes to food. The Wine list is impeccable and pretty much 100% Italian and French. Beautiful.
