Dolce Pane E Vino has been our favorite "go to" restaurant ever since we discovered this local Rancho Santa Fe hangout several years ago. Great ambiance with their art glass and wine bottle themes. Ingredients always fresh and seasonal. My wife says the sauce on the cioppino is without equal and we always enjoy their "to die for" dessert, the... More

It was good but really small. Did Italian wine flight and it was good. End of night bill came and they ran my credit card. When waiter brought signed... More

Went there with husband after recommendations from friends. Their service was good. I had a sausage flatbread. The crust is a thin one and not so filling. The flavors were great. Husband ordered baked pasta and we were surprised at how small the portion seemed. We have had much larger servings of pasta elsewhere. The flavors were good and we... More

Over the years, this has been one of our favorites when in town. Good food, friendly bartenders and a friendly crowd of regulars. Really enjoy it... typically go multiple times when in Rancho Santa Fe.

A great place to meet for after work drinks. Their selections of wines are outstanding. Staff are always very friendly and their food is excellent. I like their pizza choices or their salmon for a nice dinner. Highly recommended.

I enjoy coming here for their Salmon. It is always a bit crispy on the outside and not overdone inside. This is a small place with more bar-like seating than true dining table settings. Nice wine selection and consistently good service.

We had a ladies night out for dinner and had a wonderful meal. The restaurant has a nice Italian atmosphere and neat decorating touches including beautiful lighting. The wine selection is bountiful and the food was really good. One person in our group had the special that night of halibut and it tasted "muddy" and was sent back for something... More

Our 22 year old son found Dolce Pane E Vino online, so my husband and I were unsure what to expect. Upon arrival we were seated in the bar area in full view of the University of Texas football season opener - Hook 'Em! The atmosphere was cozy and relaxed, and the food was very tasty. My guys both ordered... More

Lamb was excellent salad was boring. Service was OK not as exceptional as I would expect. Chairs on the patio or mismatch and uncomfortable. Did they buy the chairs at a garage sale?
