Here to get my weekly fix of coffee and true Italian bakes. The Sicilian cannoli are amazing. The staff is super friendly. A real pick-me-up.

Absolutely love Dolce Sicily. It's so quaint and authentic. I visited with family where we enjoyed some Italian cakes and pastries. The staff was pleasant and welcoming. Although it's quite small, we had plenty of space. Definitely worth a visit.

As many before it, and surely many after it, Dolce Sicily joins the pantheon of grossly overrated "genuine" Italian experiences abroad. While it may collect the songs and praises of many too far astray Italians who pretend to know good coffee and good cannoli (sometimes...More
