“Expected more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

Pretty place with very nice staff. Choice of only 3 entrees, two of which my husband couldn't eat. He had chicken. I had pasta. Chicken good but small. Pasta was bland.We supposedy got a last minute cancellation and had to go at 6:00. When we left at 7:30 the restaurant was still half empty.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

The food was fantastic. Don't miss any of the pastas. Very good, well priced, wine list. Owners are really nice people who obviously care very much about the freshness and quality of their preparations.

“Dining you will remember your entire life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Suppose you dream of the perfect dining experience:
Your host greets you warmly, and shows you to a lovely table in a beautifully lit, simple but elegant small room. The menu is explained, carefully. If you want help choosing a wine, your host will match you up, magnificently (and, if you're single, you'll wish this is how a dating service would work).
Your food will come out and each dish will be beyond anything you could imagine. The courses will unfold.You will have time to experience every taste, every flavor. All the vegetables have been grown by Caleb, the chef, and Deirdre, the host, at their farm. They don't taste like any vegetables you've ever had before. This is, you imagine, what vegetables taste like in heaven.
Your wine will be superb. Dessert will be superb. You will feel full, but not stuffed. It will all feel perfect. Your host will bid you a fond adieu.
Then you will wake up...or, you will float out of the front door of Pane e Salute, where Deirdre and Caleb have created one of the finest food experiences you're likely to enjoy in your lifetime.
Just note: if you want to do this in real life, instead of your dreaming life, make a reservation well in advance, and remember that they're open for dinner Thursdays-Sunday nights.

“Exceptional Dining Experience – Local & Organic-Rooted Italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Coming from Manhattan, we truly never expected a dining experience such as this in a quaint town. With only twenty-odd seats, take the restaurant’s advice by making the reservation weeks in advance. The staff was exceptionally friendly and well-informed, and the wine list was both lengthy as well as affordable. The pizzas are simply unbelievable – we had the prosciutto pizza; the sauce was delicious and the consistency of the dough was the best we’ve ever had, perfectly thin and crispy. We had the caprese salad over tomatoes and onions, the cacio e pepe pasta, as well as the calamari entrée special and chicken entrée. The prix-fixe menu option allows you to pick any appetizer, primi, and secondi for an excellent price, allotting you smaller portions so you’re able to taste more menu items. All were absolutely exceptional. We cannot stress how much we recommend this restaurant, we even tried to return the next night but unfortunately they were fully booked. A must when in Woodstock!
