Dolcetto Patisserie & Cafe - 7 June 2014

Cuisine: Patisserie, Cafe, Italian
Location: North Perth – Fitzgerald Street

I’m a real fan of patisseries and as I recently discovered Dolcetto Patisserie & Cafe, I decided to pay them a visit. This is an Italian patisserie started in 2011 that makes wedding cakes and cakes to order, but also makes a variety of pastries that can be bought in store. They also run a cafe so you can grab a meal and then take some pastries home. They have a lot to choose from so that made the choice hard, but in the end I took home a variety:

Clockwise from top left:

  • Tiramisu slice – really lovely flavour though the cake had gone a bit dry and was lacking moistness. Tasty.
  • Coffee Eclair – lovely eclair stuffed with plenty of custard with the hint of a coffee flavour. The icing on the top is a bit too sweet though.
  • Cannoli with custard cream – oh yum. I really love cannoli and these are excellent. A firm, at times crisp pastry but soft. I know that’s a contradiction but if you’ve eaten cannoli like this you know what I mean. The pastry is delicious and the Italian custard filling even better.
  • Cannoli with chocolate cream – this was the first pastry item I reached for and I just closed my eyes after the first bite, savouring the delicious chocolate custard. So delicious!
  • Almond Biscuit – I’m not sure what they were called but there were several varieties of these biscuits. This and the next 2 items are costed by weight. The biscuits are made with almond meal and have a nice texture and flavour. However, I’m not really a big fan of this type of flavour. No criticism on Dolcetto just my personal preference.
  • Baci Biscuit – Traditional Italian hazelnut and chocolate biscuit. There’s certainly the flavour of the chocolate but it’s not too chocolatey. Quite nice.
  • Almond Biscuit – similar to the first kind of biscuit but this had some kind of dried fruit and tasted a little like marzipan. Once again, not to my taste.


Dolcetto Food Review Summary

Verdict: I’m a real fan of patisseries and this Italian patisserie serves up a variety of pastry items, including wedding cakes and other made to order cakes, plus the cafe which serves breakfast and lunch. I really loved the cannoli, delicious soft firm and at times crisp pastry surrounding the filling. The Italian custard was delicious but I liked the chocolate custard even better. The tiramisu slice carried lovely flavours of a tiramisu but was a little dry but still tasty. The delicious coffee eclair had a hint of coffee flavour in the custard filling but was a little too sweet for my liking. I didn’t really like the almond biscuit varieties which aren’t to my tastes but the baci biscuit was good. Thank goodness for patisseries and the lovely goods they offer.

It's subjective but I base my reviews on 4 key areas:

Price: Bargain > Reasonable > Moderately Expensive > Expensive
Taste: Poor > Average > Great > Delicious
Value: Poor > Good > Reasonable > Excellent
Recommendation: Eat At Home Instead > Try Once If You Want But Not Worth Visiting Again > Worth Visiting > Recommend > Highly Recommend

The final recommendation will consider the price, taste and value. Value will be based on price and other factors like service and serving size.
