My wife and I spent two nights at lake placid. When we told the inn keeper that we had plans to go to pan dulce, she said that most of her guests had negative feedback to her. WE both looked at the on line reviews and decided to try it. We called for reservations on a saturday night and were... More

Just had a wonderful meal! It was an all inclusive 4 course meal and was delicious! This was our first time at this restaurant and definitely will not be our last. The manager and wait staff were very attentive. Thanks again!!

The food was awesome. Great service. Terimsuu and cappuccino was the best I have had! It's the best restaurant in lake placid. We tried several restaurants, not nearly as good. Overall experience was great for our last night.

While out leaf peeping in Lake Placid we stopped at the Pan Dolce Restaurant because we had a coupon. The lunch I had was awesome. I had a soup and salad combo. The salad was an awesome Caesar salad but the soup stole the show. It was a very delicious apple bisque. It was so yummy and thick and hot.... More

The positive features were the smoked salmon app and the shrimp and calamari app. My salmon piccata was moist, but the carrots and potatoes were mushy and swimming in the liquid on my plate. My husband had the prime rib special and he said the meat was good, but also did not like the soft vegetables. The other couple that... More

No atmosphere .. Limited menu .. Limited wine list .. Mediocre food ... Chicken parm is supposed to be thinly sliced, instead it was a thick boneless breast .. Guitarist should be playing italian music .. They show pictures of tractors on their tv .. We went because of the positive reviews .. These people must normally eat Italian food... More

The food was delicious. I had scallops prepared... More

We went to Pan Dolce on a recommendation from a local hotel. It was a Thursday night a bit later 8:30 and had appetizers and drinks at the bar (all very good). They had live music, which I understand they have every night. The band was quite good, and not too loud that we couldn't talk at a normal volume.... More

After my experience at Pan Dolce, I'm surprised that it was rated in the top 20 out of 95 restaurants in Lake Placid. I had Veal Milanese, and my husband had the seared Ahi Tuna. Although our entrees were good, the protein portions were VERY small, and the sides were just average. I thought the dinners were extremely overpriced for... More
