Been to Italy. This is not authentic Italian. Chicken picata maybe three capers in sauce. Sauce jelly like. Caprese - Mozzarella rubbery and no basil.

A gem of a place right in Melbourne FL... I am not going into a bunch of detail, but reasonable prices and very good food . wait staff was on the money. Like many reviews have said, ask for the specials. They are a few dollars more but well worth it. Good size portions. I had the pork chop special,... More

Very professional wait staff. Food excellently prepared. Good selection on menu. Specials don't seem to change as often as I would like, but they are good. From the friendly greeting when you arrive to the final bite you will completely enjoy yourself.

The Dove III remains our favorite restaurant to take family and friends.

While the service was impeccable, the Food and drinks were mediocre at best. One of the only restaurants in Melbourne that actually knew what clams casino was, they scored poorly on taste, presentation and size. The bread sticks appeared to be of the frozen variety. The entire meal was sorely lacking in flavor.
