We were introduced to Pane e Salute by two in-the-know friends and have to say that all of our high expectations were exceeded. The owners, husband and wife team Caleb and Deirdre, are super friendly and welcoming, extremely knowledgeable about their food and wine, and work wonders in the kitchen. Each of our courses – from the chicken liver pate,... More

We ate here five or so years ago, and planned our trip back to Woodstock so that we could dine here again. We were not disappointed. First, the atmosphere: charming, intimate, beautifully lit and decorated. We were greeted by name by Deirdre, one of the owners, and directed to our table. The food: in a word, delicious. We both did... More

Sundays can be tricky in small towns...at nice restaurants..but the owners were ready/willing/able. Usually reservations have to be made 1-2 weeks out...we were lucky! Almost the perfect small, quality restaurant...we'd drive a long way to dine with them again...it's clear they love what they are doing...the range of pizzas is perfect...the risotto and fish were tasty...the super thin crust on...

A very earnest attempt at doing something great but the food and atmosphere are just average. I bit of a disappointment.

Despite the rave reviews, the food was nothing special. We wanted to love it as it is a cute place and the owner seemed very welcoming. She made excellent wine pairing suggestions. Pizza was probably the best thing we had. Pasta was second. Beef stew was dry. Salad special was very basic. Literally escarole and vinaigrette. Dessert was the least... More

We had the fixed price dinner and each course was more exceptional than the next: salad, orange and olive pizza and trout. Yum. These people know what they're doing.

Simple, tasty, fairly priced. It was a really a special treat. But now this month after a 200 dollar ticket for a left hand turn from the local small town sherrifs trying to make their end of month quota - we will never step foot in Wodstock, Vermont again.

I've dined at fine places in Rome, Venice, Milan, Florence, Pisa and Bologna -- and I'm hard to please. But in Woodstock, Vermont, of all places, I found the finest Italian restaurant I've ever dined in. The proprietors raise much of their own produce; they create their own liqeurs; the wait table, deliver dishes, do contortions to please their guests... More

The food is always excellent here. There is an excellent Italian wine list. Deirdre makes her guests always feel welcome. Caleb dishes are innovative and tasty in keeping with the Italian cuisine. They use vegetables from their farm. We have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. This is a popular place. So, be sure to reserve in... More

Everything was wonderful from the service, menu - including the many specials representing what was available from the owners farm, the wine and the fabulous food. Can't speak highly enough of the whole experience. One of the highlights of our trip to New England.
