Dinner prior to Temple Theater show

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.

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.
