We have ate here many times. Mostly for lunch and with family and friends. The food is pretty decent. The interior is clean and it's kinda cool that they leave the old bank vault door open. Nice big windows with lots of beautiful light. My only complaint is the service. They're mostly friendly but just don't have that "career" mentality.... More

We have enjoyed every meal that we have had at La Dolce Vita Pizzeria. They have much more than Pizza. Their Lasagna is great and so is the Chicken & Spinach Canelloni - both are served hot out of the oven. Their Insalata Roma salad is our favorite. Their salads are always fresh, chrisp and nice and COLD. Finally they... More

One of those "Best Kept Secrets." A family restaurant with an easy, warm and relaxed atmosphere, clean as a whistle and wonderful to visit. The prices are reasonable and the service is friendly. The best part is a full menu of delicious and delectable dishes of delightfully fun food! Our favorite is the Pizza Americana with one of their cold... More

My husband and I went there the other night for dinner. He was craving good pizza after watching a show of the Food Channel about pizza. They make their own dough here at La Dolce Vita and it is delicious. I was going to order my usual shaved steak with cheese and mushrooms and a chipolte mayo in a wrap.... More

We have have mamy meals here but this was not a good meal. They were busy and it was loud. The food was very good but the service was not. We had a Ling wait to order and get our food. We ran out of tea and water before they refilled our drinks.

Being local I think I go here at least twice a month. I love that it is in the "old town" part of Sanford where the interior has exposed brick walls and an old vault that has been turned into the wine cellar. I also love that you can tell that the food is cooked fresh meaning that it isn't... More

My wife had the Dirty Bird and I had a calzone. Both were great and I can't wait to go again sometime soon.

I found the food, atmosphere and service to be excellent! There was a large selection of various Italian favorites - lasagna, pizza, spaghetti and a scrumptious house salad unlike any other I've ever tried.

Our server was knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful as he answered all our questions about the menu items. The lasagna was extremely good. I will be visiting here again.

Good selection of Italian dishes and pizza. Personally, the Steak Sandwich is the Bomb. Give it a try. Lunch will set you back about $10.
