Great for Sunday lunch, business lunch or even date night.

My family eats at La Dolce Vita often. We enjoy the sandwiches and salads after church on Sundays. They use plenty of fresh garlic and their dishes are full of flavor. The lasagna is delicious. Their desserts are quite good.

Had a great lunch. The space is open and sunny in a historic bank building. Our server was tops - even gave us samples of the soups to help choose. My soup and half-sandwich was a generous portion and delicious. Focaccia bread is addictive!

Our hometown residence groan about not having nice places to eat, then go out of town instead of supporting the few nice local places we do have. La Dolce Vita is one of those places Sanford should embrace.

Great food and service but bundle up in the winter especially if you are seated by the windows. Realize they cannot do anything to help as the building is on the historic registry. The food makes up for the chills.

We were so glad we stopped here while driving through Sanford. The Artichoke dip was such a great start to our meal and the pizza was sooooo good. We ate the whole Pizza! Love the old building and the bank vault/wine cellar.

The wait staff was friendly and accommodating, albeit a little slow to seat us and ring us up. The food was good and very reasonably priced. I recommend sitting on the back patio on nice days.

This restaurant has a very limited menu. No where near authentic Italian. It's your basic Sysco frozen food, microwaved and canned sauce poured on top. Not homemade anything. I had a few bites of the calzone and I'd say that was probably the best thing on the menu. The service was just okay. We ate and wanted dessert after. Our... More

My friend and I stopped here late one evening after watching the US Open in Pinehurst. They had stopped serving but would take a carryout order. We ordered a Marguerita pizza and ate it outside by our parked car. There was a bench we could sit on. The crust was perfect, thin and crispy(not burnt) and with just enough herbs... More
