Another great dining experience with my lovely wife at Dolce Pane e Vino! We had a nice romantic booth for two, the service was attentive, helpful, and accommodating. The food was spot on as usual. The champagne flight for my wife and the red wine flight for me were perfect accompaniments for the food. Parking is easy. This is one of our favorite neighborhood go to's for a nice meal on a date night!

We ordered salmon, an apple/lettuce salad, a cheeseboard and drinks. Both of our drinks (wine and sangria) were very good. The salmon and salads were also good; however, the salmon portion was disappointing. The main reason I'm rating 3 stars is because the cheese board was extremely disappointing. It's a $20 item, yet we got less than 2 ounces in total of three different types of cheese. To make things worse, the cheese and sides were served on a HUGE cutting board, further exacerbating the appearance of a very small amount of cheese.

We always enjoy Dolce in Rancho Santa Fe, and it was no different for Christmas Eve this year. Will was a fun and solicitous waiter, the table cozy, the mussels tasty (and local), and the Belle Glos wine delicious (very good wine list here).

If you’re hungry don’t go there, the smallest portion of risotto that I’ve ever had and my friends ravioli portion was a joke

There was no air conditioning or even circulation of air, It was incredibly hot, and even though the reservation has been made nicely in the advance, the tables that we were offered were completely inappropriate to try to speak to each other from -- so we did not stay. I cannot speak to food or value because we did not stay, so ignore the ratings above, which I was required to include in order to submit the review.

I've been To Dolce many times, and it's always great, cozy laid back, the staff knows what it's doing. So when my friends put in in charge of finding a place for one of our girl friends birthday I suggested Dolce and it was a big hit, many cudos came my way. We had a party of seven and I was the only one who had been there before. We're all from Orange County and we're down for a few days of golf and playing the ponies. Every time I'm in town I make sure I go To Dolce.

Visiting the area and read positive reviews here. We had several starters-Brussels sprouts, burrata and then a main. We were seated in a booth area which was cozy and better for drinks and small dishes. I found the Brussels sprouts and soup were too overdone with the bacon/Larson flavor. It was hard to taste the actual vegetable. My daughter had lasagna. Too cheesy and hard to get the flavor of the meat sauce. The server was fine but didn't make too much effort to correct what didn't work.

No doubt an absolute favorite of mine.

The service is ALWAYS first-rate. Can't say enough good things about the Dolce Pane Vino staff in Rancho Santa Fe. They just know what they are talking about and they obviously know what they are doing.

Every single dish we ordered was fresh, delicious and phenomenally prepared. Salmon, salads, the creamy, smoky tomato soup, fettuccine, pizza, wine - absolutely wonderful.

Walk in or make a reservation and enjoy your time here. It's so low-key, casual and fun over there, but definitely first-rate in preparation and flavor. What else could you want?
