Love your place. The owner was a wonderful and came and sat down with every table. That's a lot of time that most people don't take. The food was awsome and the lattes are out of this world!!!

This is a beautiful cozy restaurant of fine dining in a region that really doesn't have truly fine dining. We will return with out of town guests who are looking for a truly special dining experience.

We and our friends had a lovely meal at your restaurant. One of our guests is a picky eater and the server did all she could to accommodate him, which we really appreciated. :) We always have a lovely time at the Cafe Dodici and would recommend the restaurant to others looking for a special night out.

From Our Editors

Lorraine Williams is a firm believer in the power of positive energy. That's why she consulted a feng shui expert in China while designing her restaurant and why she named that restaurant after the Italian word for 12—the number around which we structure time, measurements, and music. Cafe Dodici has since thrived under her influence, attracting diners from far and wide with its good vibes and Italian meals. The Iowan even estimates that 85% of its visitors are from out of town, and recounts how an Illinois couple has stayed in the upstairs guest suite for Valentine's day for the last four years.

The menu keeps its dishes simple, steering clear of ingredients that tend to overwhelm the palate, such as salt, garlic, and Junior Mints. Instead, the kitchen lets its clove- and nutmeg-spiced tomato sauce speak for itself. In the sugo di carne, the sauce covers ground beef and pork mixed with tagliatelle pasta, but you can also order it as part of a classic: house-made meatballs and spaghetti. Other entrees include spinach- and gouda-stuffed chicken roulades, a roasted half-duck in an orange-rosemary glaze, and lobster-stuffed ravioli. And, should you stop by before dinnertime, the café serves lunch sandwiches as well as baked goods and coffee in its adjoining shop.
