Authentic Italian food, served with heart!

I have been here a couple of times before, and it was very good. However, this story is worth telling! Recently went with my husband and son for dinner. We arrived at 8:45pm, and weren't sure we'd get seated because they close at 9pm. Angelo, the owner, welcomed us and said, "the door says... read more

If you want "real" and great Italian food, try this place. First, the waitstaff is constantly attending to you and is happy to recommend a wine and food. The portions are a good size, not small designer food nor over sized portions. The risotto is fabulous, we each had a different one. All of the dishes come out beautifully designed.... More

We just recently found this place from trip advisor in Westport. Four of us tried for the first time, the good and service and the wine were surprisingly great. Then I, with another friend, came for the second time about a week later. The quality of everything was consistent. I myself has been very critical about the restaurant food, as... More

I've eaten at this restaurant for dinner at least a dozen times over the past few years. I've eaten with friends, family, and even solo. I love the food here. The service has always been very good as well. The specials are worth trying, as they are often seasonal.

A friend told us this was the best Italian he ever had. Went for dinner. He was so right! Had the Romo salad. Excellent! Wife had the meat Ravioli. I had the veal scallopini. The best Italian we ever had. The best! The owner greets you at the door and you are his guest,not just another customer. A welcome surprise.... More

We've been to Pane e Bene several times and greatly enjoyed its excellent food, close-by location and most important, warm and friendly atmosphere. Recently went back - albeit on a Saturday evening - for an early reservation to celebrate a birthday. Selected it over some other places in part because of that atmosphere. Well, we were greeeted (a misnomer) by... More

Wow. With these reviews, I had expected Pane E Bene to be so much more. Starting with the ambience. You should know that the restaurant is in a strip mall -- which isn't bad in and of itself, but it feels like a strip mall experience inside. You first walk in to the bar area, which literally comprises half the... More

I hate to let the word out about this gem but I think I've struck gold! I went with a friend on a Thursday night. The place started filling up about 7:30 but the service never skipped a beat. They were very accommodating and friendly. By the way, even when it was the most full, we could still hear each... More
