1710 Kenilworth Ave (Fillmore Ave.)
Charlotte, NC 28203
Located on Kenilworth Avenue, this casual eatery is beloved by Charlotte locals for its hearty Italian comfort food like veal marsala, eggplant rotolini, frutti di mare, and time-honored small plates. The gnocci -- undeniably the house signature, with your choice of sage butter, beef bolognese, four cheese, or pesto -- is so popular that it's only served on Tuesdays as to give the other dishes a fair chance at being ordered. Dolce also doubles as a relaxed wine bar, offering a robust list of Italian and Californian bottles.
