This is by far one of my favorite local eateries. I have had my birthday dinner here numerous times, also due to them having the best cupcakes in town.

Check the specials online daily if you are just visiting, they never disappoint.

In Tampa visiting sis and her hubby and their favorite spot down the street is Pane. We were able to get a table ( near bar area ) quickly after calling earlier. I would agree that the happy hour crowd was pretty loud but we weren't too bothered by it ( better than boring silence or mis-matched music ). We all ordered from the nightly specials and my wahoo/grouper combo was very tasty and properly cooked. Our server, Lindsey, was very personable and took great care of us and Bryan ( GM ) made sure we had a great time ( which we did ). I can see why Pane is their fav go to spot...good job!

but incredibly noisy. Very difficult to talk with our server but he went out of his way to suggest and serve wonderful food. I enjoyed the watermelon salad and would highly recommend that to anyone visiting. The Twin Cheeks small plate hit this flavor spot. So good.

Takeout, lunch or dinner-are all top notch. I have yet to have anything but a fabulous meal. The wait & bar staff are on their game-attentive, cheery & make the experience feel personal.

My boyfriend suggested we go here for dinner since he knows I like unique foods and especially great desserts. I was not impressed. For one thing, it was very noisy. If the food had been amazing and service good, I could put up with the rather loud volume. I tried the flatbread with mushrooms and 4 cheese medley. I'm not sure what cheeses they included but they just didn't seem to work well together and I simply didn't like it. Our server didn't come back by our table until my friend was done and I still had a plate full of food and he asked if I wanted a box. When I said I just didn't' care for the dish he mumbled something about I should have asked for something else then took it away to box it up. He brought it back with the bill. He didn't ask if we wanted coffee or dessert or anything. I was looking forward to the great desserts I'd heard about but by then I was just not feeling like he gave a hoot about us as customers so we just paid and left. Maybe it all just came together in a bad way but I don't plan to go back. Very disappointed.
