Delightful

We had a delightful experience. Dover sole was the special and it was excellent. The fried calamari appetizer is right up there with the best we've had. Nice wine and very good cappuccino. Service was very attentive. A good experience.

This is one of the most authentic, down to Earth, wonderful Italian bistros in the area. The food is excellent, the prices moderate, the decor traditional, and the service friendly. I've been here several times so I think I'm qualified to give a valid review. Tops of my list in Westport!

Terrific Italian bistro with great vibe and even better food. Authentic and deeply comforting Italian classics and contemporary dishes. Could not be happier. Great well priced wines, wonderful bread and virgin olive oil; great grappa and just a friendly clientele. Spoke to so many couples and families (light happy chats with folks so happy to be there.... just lovely). Canot... More

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 9pm so you can come in... 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
