Caffe Dolce Ratings and Reviews
Beautiful place, different flavors from different dishes very well done. Great wine list and lots of different beer. Wonderful in the summertime, with outside seating and lots of fresh air. Breakfast and brunch are always excellent, and cute waitresses, all in all a very interesting and fun place to eat at. We'll be back for sure.
Great find!! Excellent food and service. Loved the decor - mosaic tile floor and painted ceiling - wonderful ambiance. Gelato counter with yummy, interesting choices. Try olive oil gelato - surprisingly delicious. Nice selection of Deruta Italian pottery.
I have been going to CD since it opened. It originally was a moderately priced pasta type of restaurant. A couple of months ago they changed chefs and drastically knocked down the pasta and pizza portion of the menu. While the menu broadened the prices have gone way up. This is no longer your nice weekly go out and enjoy a meal location. Moving up to a special occasion restaurant. Beyond the cost of meals, the wine prices have jumped while the pour is shorter. Combined I think this reflects the smaller number of diners at CD.
Service was awesome, and atmosphere wonderful! The food was delicious and presented well. Portion size was perfect. We ate outside on a beautiful evening, the noise level was low considering being on a corner of two popular streets. Our waitress was kind, sweet, and funny. It was our anniversary and they helped us celebrate in style!
I love and have always loved the food at Cafe Dolce. The service this last time was almost bad enough to make me want to never return. Our waitress was at our table a total of three times throughout the entire meal, once to take our drink order, once to take our food order and once to pick up our plates. When we only ordered water to drink there was an instant change in her attitude, as it most likely cut our total bill by about half. When she brought our final bill at the end, she perked up again and was very friendly. Overall, our experience was disappointing, as this has always been one of my favorite spots to eat in Missoula and I recommend people go there often. I've always had nothing short of stellar service there so maybe it was an off night or a new server.
I was with a party of 5. Things started well with a very kind and accommodating hostess who finagled a perfect table on short notice for the elderly members of our group.
However, all of our dishes were extremely over-salted. An amateur mistake that ruined an interesting menu and otherwise nicely-cooked meals. To make matters worse, all service staff disappeared once our entrees were served, leaving us very thirsty and with empty water glasses for the whole meal.
Caffe Dolce has always been one of my favorite places in Missoula. However, our last time eating there was disappointing. New menu is not what it used to be, and the food was good but not great like I've come to expect of this place. Still a great beer/wine list though.
As always, Caffe Dolce did not disappoint. Their creative menu offering varied options for even the most discriminating of palates will leave you satisfied. The beer and wine selection is unmatched- what a fun way to spend an evening!
As always, Cafe Dolce was a true pleasure. The food is farm to table and local and wonderful. Their wine list is superb and the dinner service is excellent. Whether you chose to go for breakfast, lunch, dinner or Sunday Brunch you will not be disappointed. When the weather is warm, their outside seating area is perfect!
The califlower pizza tasted like the chef poured water on it before serving. All of our food including the salad was missing an ingredient. For example the salad with pomegranate seeds was missing the pomegranate. My card was also charged three times which I will need to take care of Monday. If you just want the environment this is a nice place. If you want great food for the same price and the environment I recommend the red bird win bar.
It was a great dining experience for milestone birthday. The service was excellent and attentive and I thoroughly enjoyed dining at Caffe Dolce. I sampled the varied cuisine and recommend it highly as my grilled potato salad was unusual as was the pasta nero with shrimp, scallops and chickpeas - very tasty!
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".
~ a long term and increasingly dissatisfied customer.
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.
