Great Hidden Gem

Little Italian restaurant in a restored bank with exposed brick walls and the old safe as a wine cellar provides a great atmosphere for a lunch with friends or dinner out. Sandwiches, salads, soups and desserts as well as some pasta entrees. Not your normal menu, excellent quality and service.

We go here often for the delicious, fresh salads. Pizza is great and the sandwich options include many tasty combinations from steak to vegetarian. Always clean and pleasant dining. Inexpensive, as well.

Good food and great service. Meals always hot and savory. The salads are a big plus! I support this restaurant as they support the Temple theater.

La Dolce Vita Pizzeria in historic downtown Sanford is a true delight. A wonderfully modern Italian restaurant housed beautifully in an old bank building. The vault is now the wine cellar! My husband enjoys the pizza made exactly the way he wants it. I enjoy their steak wrap, closest thing to a Philly cheese steak I've had down south. Staff... More

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.
