The best Italian cuisine

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... read 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

First of all, this is a small place next to a carpet company, so the charm is mostly on the inside, which will make you quickly forget all about carpets and the vehicular madness on the Post Road. The proprietor is an ebullient Italian gentleman who is rightly proud of his food and has a good word for everyone. You... More

They accommodated our party of 6 without a reservation on a busy night without a problem. The half a chicken is wonderful-- waitress described it as "Sunday dinner," and it was.
