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).
