We where surprised at the dinner menu from the outside decor. The outside gives you the roadhouse feel as does the signage advertising live music. Our server Nick was very pleasant and knew the Menu well. The food was slow coming but the pre dinner bread made up for the wait. This is not a place that serves fast food... More

I had the brunch buffet. Although the selection on the buffet was limited everything was prepared with care and tasted delicious. Prime Rib! Also the service was perfect, host/manager and waitress were on point.

Buffett - disorganized , WAY overpriced , constantly running out of items of the 8 food Buffett selection. All the rude, lazy waitress had to do was sit people down and tell plates at Buffett and maybe just maybe get them some water at least. Nope that was too much for her to handle- finally got a glass of water... More

We had an great lunch at Pan Dolce. The cup of soup and half sandwich was so good that I hated to leave any but, it was more than I could eat. Great service, spotlessly clean dining area and restrooms. Best of all, the food was excellent!

We found Pan Dolce through Trip Advisor prior to coming to Lake Placid. We did not peruse the menu prior to going, however. Upon arrival for dinner we entered the restaurant and it was freezing inside so we requested we be seated on the patio which the host did. It looked to be a nicely decorated restaurant - all the...

We were pleasantly suprised by the delicious meal and excellent service we received on our last dinner night out in Lake Placid. We had attempted to go to other locations, but were disappointed by the atmosphere. We came across Pan Dolce and were glad we did! Great caesar salad, delicious pastas and specials, and amazing slider style burgers for the... More

We tried this place while in Lake Placid. It appeared to be quite popular the evening we came as our table was the only one available. Tried the onion soup, which tasted like out of a can rather than restaurant made and I'm hoping I am wrong. Also tried the sweet sausage and rigatoni which was alright but with the... More

Unfortunately, our dinner was not worth the wait. It was not a good sign when I heard the server tell the couple at the table next to us that "the kitchen is overwhelmed tonight." Although our salads were served without much delay, we waited almost an hour for our entrees to be served. It took so long that the server... More

We were totally surprised by our first visit to Pan Dolce! The food was exceptional - fresh, tasty and served by a very pleasant waiter named Nic. There was quiet live music being played in the background that was at a perfect level for conversation and at a pace that made for enjoyable dining.
