Tried their pesto (4/5) and tomato basil gnocchi (3/5). It?s not a formal dine in with waiters to help you but other than that the pastas were fresh, quickly served and better than most places that serve Italian cuisine.
Definitely one of the most if not the most authentic Italian cafes that I have ever been to. Not only is the food here amazing, but the service is equally as great. You definitely feel welcome and comfortable at this spot. I highly recommend this spot if you're on the area you will not regret it (:
This cafe came to me highly recommended, and it most aspects, it did not disappoint! I loved the wide selection of coffee, gelato, and pastas. The store itself is small but impressively laid out, and it boasts a vibrant atmosphere. The staff were friendly and helpful. The only reason I'm offering four stars instead of five could actually be due to "user error": I ordered the gnocchi with gorgonzola sauce, and found the sauce to have such a pungent flavor, I couldn't finish it. I wonder if the sauce was made with gorgonzola piccante, instead of gorgonzola dolce, but admittedly, I don't have the training to differentiate the two. All I know is that the flavor, though it may well have been both fresh and authentic, was far too piquant for my palate, and as much as I wanted to enjoy it, I could not. Fans of blue cheese would likely love this sauce, but unfortunately, it wasn't for me. On my next visit, I plan to try the vodka sauce, and I'm optimistic it will be much more to my taste.
Very pricey wow. But it was a good Canoli. Remind me of being home in New York 40 years ago. But if you are traveling on a budget you might want to pass this place unlimited budget go for it
I enjoyed this hidden cafe with its variety of bakery, desserts and other goodies. The Gelato was quite delicious, the place gave off a authentic Italian experience. People working there are quite friendly and gave me a number of recommendations. It wasn't too busy when I got there in the afternoon. The cafe is inside a building and they do have tables and chairs next to the cafe.
Wow - this is place is amazing! Probably one of the better Italian places we have ate at. Albeit a bit hidden off the street and did not have full inventory of what was listed but well worth the visit. Came on a Saturday afternoon for a quick meal and desert. Was not busy at all and staff was readily available to serve. The gnocchi with pesto sauce was absolutely delicious and paired well with the 2015 Monte Antico. Ordered a couple different deserts which were also phenomenal - nutella cheese cake and the sweet but fantastically warm dark chocolate crossiant. Amid Covid, they have the outdoor seating in front of the plaza to sit and relax while eating but we took it to go. Food presentation was great and would definitely go back again.
Fresh tasting Italian pastries. Very crispy on the outside but the fillings were a hit and miss for my family. Our kids are more accustomed to Asian types of bakery/pastry (strawberry fillings, custard, chocolate, red beans, and taro). Nonetheless, I enjoyed it. Friendly staff and very clean place. Good breakfast place.
Wow! The ice cream was just amazing. My favorite was Banana, Nutella and strawberry were the kids favorites. We didn't try the food but it looks great. The person behind the counter was super friendly and patient when we came in with a bunch of noisy kids who all wanted to sample the ice cream.
Here at Dolce Sicilia we pride ourselves on having the best local italian in San Jose. We work hard everyday to Give our customers savory coffee. Please come check us out of call (408) 882-3953 for me details
