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.

Restaurant Rating System

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.
