“The Real Deal”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

People who don't appreciate the food prepared here just don't know what good, real food is! The staff is most accommodating and the preparation is straight forward - no gimmicks. Fresh ingredients and no excuses. The place is small but they always do there best to make their customers feel special and welcome. This was a small birthday celebration for a couple who would rather eat at home and were skeptical - I convinced them to try Pane e Bene and everyone left happy!

“Food just Ok”
Reviewed May 30, 2013 via mobile

Service fine. Nice enough place. Don't understand how anyone can think the food is great. It really isn't.

“small place but suprisingly great”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Food is out of this world. I often come here with friends for a good nice dinner. Angelo and Henry are great host and chef. You have to reserve in advance (sometime 3 months in advance to get in).

“very good italian food”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

we really enjoyed this place - just ate here last week - we had a nice bottle of pinot noir - they had some sort of special on wine that th waitress was pushing and it made sense to take advantage of it. i enjoyed the con la rucola salad and my wife had the classic caesar salad. we just split a pizza it had sausage and other fresh vegetables - the hot peppers were very very hot - but it was delicious. we will definately go again.

Thank you for your kind words but I think you might have the wrong restaurant, we don't have pizza.

“Incredible food, service, wine, atmosphere and energy!”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

Angelo, the owner, is amazingly talented and took time to explain the dishes, ingredients and where they were from. Loved the wine list (awesome) and all his recommendations were right on! It tops my favortie 5 Star restaurants in the area. Thank you Angelo and the staff for a wonderful evening. Gail
