I guess the bread was good. The food wasn't bad, wasn't anything to rave about either. The salmon was OKAY. I would go back if I needed to for social reasons. Oh I wasn't sure if I was speaking to the owner or not but he was sarcastic when I asked if people were enjoying the salmon.

From the moment you enter Angelo and his team make you feel like family. Comfortable atmosphere and attentive service. The menu touches on all the Italian classics with a chef's attention to detail. My Risotto special was better than I had in Milan. The fish is carefully prepared with a delicate balance of flavors. And a parting hug from Angelo...That's... More

I have been to Pane E Bene too many times to remember but one thing I do remember is the wonderful service. The staff and owner are absolutely lovely. I have been here with friends and family and we always leave smiling. My favorite dishes are the veal and salmon. As the restaurant is limited in seating it is best... More

This restaurant is in a line of stores and yet it stands out in quality. Very nice decor and there is outdoor seating and a lively bar as well. We had the Buffalo Mozzarella and prosciutto and it was so incredibly fresh. All of the pasta is made on the premises. And it is light and flavorful. You must try... More

The owner welcomed me at the door, the first drink was overflowing, the waiter more than once told me to relax and enjoy my drink, my appetizer, my meal, my wine, my espresso—all of which were better than I expected. How often does this happen in any restaurant I go to? Rarely, rarely. A really class restaurant.

I ordered the rib eye steak medium rare. I got a sirloin tail well done. Angelo's only response was that he only buys prime meat. Not the$35 steak I had, And plastic menus? but the french fries were good.

From the time we sat down until the final glass of homemade limoncello (on the house) a delightful evening. Our dinner club of 9 chooses a different restaurant each six weeks. We had been to Pane 3 years ago, our first dinner together. It was wonderful then, so our anniversary provided an opportunity for another visit. We started with appetizers... More

Many people may know owner Angelo from his past Restaraunt experience , worked for another local Italian Restaraunt. He has opened his own and the food is very good. I also love that they are close by the house. Very good service food specials
