We had a wonderful lunch today, the food and service were much better than the recent times we have been there. This place, like very other restaurant, is working with a staff shortage. We have been coming here for years and this is the VERY...first time that we have seen every available seat filled - - that alone tells you a lot about the place. Notice the new hours.More

Restaurant is lovely and immaculate. It’s also very busy. That being said, our experience wasn’t great. Ordered a pizza and it was so salty it was inedible and we left most of it. Told the waitress and she didn’t seem to care at all.... so...we won’t be backMore

The staff are wonderful and the food is great. Our meal was prepared promptly, and service was outstanding. We stopped in late for dinner on our way through town and enjoyed every second of our visit. I definitely recommend stopping by if you are in...the area.More

We recently stopped at Elizabeth’s for dinner and came away troubled by what appears to be a decline in their standards. Though there were only a few tables occupied and there were multiple waitstaff on duty, the room was filled with empty tables that remained...uncleared for the duration of our stay. Our dinners were tasty, but the ‘ambiance’ was depressing. If the busboy doesn’t show up for work, it seems as if the ample waitstaff or the clearly idle hostess could pitch in to insure that the dining room is clean, clear and welcoming.More

Very slow service. Then our salads came with dressing in “packets”! And they didn’t set the packets on the side, it was put directly on the lettuce! My fettuccine Alfredo was so terrible, tasted like burnt milk. My husbands spaghetti and meatballs tasted like it...was a frozen tv dinner. And my sons chicken...well, I didn’t want to say anything until we left, but it looked horrible- it was white! We waited forever for our tab and were told they had a large party, sooooo, that means we should have to suffer? The food is not like restaurant food, it tastes like everything came out of a can. We were really surprised because every time we would drive by, it smelled so good. Maybe they have good pizza? Don’t know if we will be back to give it a try. There is another Italian restaurant in Sanford that has unbelievable food- we will stick with that one.More

I enjoyed my Italian sausage sub. Perfectly cooked with lots of cheese and plenty of tasty sausage. Unfortunately, the waiter destroyed the experience. Twice, I had to get up from the table and ask her for more water and to bring the check. She couldn't...seem to get away from talking to other wait staff and hanging around the checkout counter. Looks like a management failure...More

Elizabeth's is one of my favorites in Greensboro where I live, so I decided to try it when I was traveling recently to Sanford. I have to say the service, space and food were all excellent! Bravo!

This restaurant is somewhat hidden next to a shopping center. You will not see it from the road. In my case, I thought it was in the strip mall across the parking lot, but then realized it was by itself. The place was kind of...quiet late on a Friday night, but still cooked manicotti quickly and served some garlic bread as a side item. It is elegant but not stuffy. The menu has several pastas, calzones, pizza styles, and should make most people happy. It's a reasonably large place and could probably host a group of 8 or 10.More

I grew up going here on Friday nights. Back when it was in the hole in the wall place before it got its own building. The cheesesteak and pizza is the best. I went back after not going there for 8 years and the owners...still know me by name. This is a family business i'm happy to give my money to.More

We stopped eating in at dinner because the service went downhill. We kept coming back because my husband likes the Greek salad and no one else in town has the Greek dressing they use. But the last 3 times we did takeout, including last night,...the order was messed up. I don't know how you can mess up a Greek salad and a small calzone no ham, add extra dressing. Last night I gave my husbands name 3 times and had to spell it out and she still read it back wrong. I'm not sure who's running this place anymore, but whoever is doing the hiring should stop.More
