Nice place to family. Absolutely beautiful pizza. They have a Wednesday deal, 2 pizzas and pay 1. Nice coffee and wonderful staff.

We stopped in for a late lunch during the Garden fete, this café was humming with people. One of us had a pizza - it was a generous serving and we were able to take the remainer home with us (it was delicious!). I had the soup of the day which was a heartwarming pumpkin and tomato, again a generous... More

My wife insisted we return here for a light lunch because we had limited time available before an appointment, and she had enjoyed a previous lunch here. I'm afraid on this occasion it simply didn't measure up. Met with a smile and are you here for lunch? Here are two menus and a drinks list sit anywhere. Restaurant wasn't busy... More

I don't really know Blenheim so when I was a customer in a bookstore nearby I resorted to my favourite way of finding a great place for coffee and things. They recommended Dolce Bar Pizzeria and Restaurant. The staff there were very friendly and welcoming so when I asked for a coffee in they way I prefer(I am rather fussy)... More

Had a disappointing experience for a family dinner. The service was fine - the food wasn't so flash. My understanding of a woodfired pizza is a rustic and authentic base - with fresh toppings and even the occasional crust burn from the heat of the fire. We got soggy, focaccia bread like bases with excessive toppings. People obviously enjoy their... More

We went on the two for one night. They ran out of large bases (what?? You mean you don't make your own??) so offered us two smalls instead of the free large. Wow! Those pizzas were some of the tastiest pizzas I've ever had!!! I don't know what it was about them, the toppings? The sauces? The bases? Whatever it... More

We arrived at 6:30pm without a booking and although it was very busy there were still a couple of table options available for us. We were pleased with the ice in our glasses for bottled cider and were given replacement glasses (with ice) for our next bottles. The garlic bread and fries for starters were well coated/seasoned. I was disappointed... More
