Caffe Dolce Ratings and Reviews
We recently had dinner at Café Dolce and ...
We recently had dinner at Café Dolce and the experience was just okay. I've been dinning there for a long time, and I agree with other reviews that the restaurant is slipping a bit. The waitress must have been new because she didn't have any suggestions about the beer menu, and she forgot to bring us dinner rolls as well as extra plates (we told here we were splitting the items we ordered so we could mix and match). We had to wait both times for her to come back with extra plates. She also took our silverware when she presented us with our meal. We ordered a pizza, salad, and the cast iron cooked mac and cheese. The pizza was overcooked and actually burnt on the bottom, as it was last time we ordered it. The mac and cheese was very delicious, and the salad was not bad, perhaps slightly over dressed. Most of the time we have enjoyed Café Dolce, but I think we will try somewhere new in town after our experience.

We are long term patrons of Dolce and as of late we have been increasingly disappointed. The new menu is lacking in presentation and quality and it is more expensive. We have been having our employee Christmas party at Dolce for several years in a row and we will not be booking it again. The previous menu was imaginative and worth the price. We ate there last night and the waitress was inattentive. We had to ask for the usual complimentary hot rolls served with olive oil and the size of the wine pours and glass size has also gotten smaller. Dolce has gotten a little too "full of itself".

Great atmosphere and even better food. The five spice sweet potatoes and lamb chops are out of this world. The owner personally asked how our experience was and whether we had suggestions for improvement. I highly recommend

Best pasta in Missoula, great wine list and especially fun for brunch/lunch Caffe Dolce's neighborhood location is often missed by non-locals. It's prices aren't low, but they're a good value given the unique/delicious foods they offer. Atmosphere is absolutely not stuffy. The room is a bit loud at times - just deal with it.

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.

I think our server forgot about us as there was a very large table nearby taking priority. We have been here several times and really love it but this time we could tell it wasn't going well so we actually left and didn't stay for dinner.

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.
