Pane e Bene
Second time here. Just as impressive as our first. Incredible branzino and veal entrees.
Friendly atmosphere. Very enjoyable
Been going here for years. Best deal chop ever! Angelo, the owner is awesome!
Kate night early in the week dinner- pasta, salad, chicken parm - all good!
The service was outstanding.
You could tell servers wanted you to have an amazing time.
And the food excellent all around!
We will be coming back soon!!!
And when your 6 y/o says this place was good...
U know it’s good.
Great food and service will def be back!!
Best service in a long time. The veal was very tender. The salad was fresh.
I can only describe it as a perfectly planned meal. Not too much but not too little. We had the stuffed pepper as the app, salmon and pork entrees and lava cake for dessert. Everything was perfectly portioned so that I left full and satisfied but got to enjoy all the courses. And a sorely delicious. The service is exactly what you can expect from a genuine Italian restaurant. Personal attention and very detail accounted for. We can’t wait to go back.
All of our food was FANTASTIC. We had the chicken parmesean (pounded thin) their sauce is top notch. All the pasta dishes are homemade. I had the Branzino fish (Delish) Linguine with cockles (baby sweet clams) in a white sauce. Veal cutlet was excellent and the Bolognese (to die for).
We have always loved this restaurant but sadly it is not what it once was. We had salads as starters that
were poor at best, seemed to have come straight from the fridge on the plates they were served on, the beet salad had a few pieces of beet. One of our mains was cold, the other was pasta which tasted good but seemed to come from an outside source when pasta at this location used to be special and made in house. Hopefully, just a bad night as it is a local favorite for us.
great atmosphere, love being acknowledged by the owner!!!! Feels like home! Food is yummy!
Outstanding friendly service, generally good quality food, my veal chop was rather dry, otherwise no special remarks about this long-lived local restaurant
Wonderful friend lily service and amazing food!
Delicious food as well as atmosphere Staff super friendly
Food was very good. Wait staff was friendly and attentive .
The restaurant is very very small and if you are seated at the small tables between the bar and the dining room it makes it difficult to enjoy. Very very tight seating. Have to move your chair when people need to go by. Can’t really move at all. No elbow room whatsoever
I would go back because the food was good but I would make sure to request a table in the main dining area.
Enjoyed our meal here on a quiet Tuesday night. Only a couple of other tables in use at 8:00 PM. Seating was prompt. Excellent waiter with respect to attention and knowledge of the menu and food. Not the most intimate or romantic atmosphere but certainly serviceable. Food was excellent. Friend had a veal dish that was essentially a very very large 'porterhouse appearing' veal chop that he said was excellent. Wife had an almond coated salmon that was excellent. Other friend had cod dish that she said was excellent. I had a grilled seafood/grilled vegetable combination that was incredible. Salads were a bit on the skimpy side and the Caesars dressing was bland. Desert (chocolate molten cake) was excellent. Prices were a touch on the steeper side but still fair. Would definitely recommend dinner here and I do anticipate returning for another meal.
Wonderful food and excellent service with a family feel
Food is always (consistently) very good. On the weekends, it's a zoo....busy and noisy...much more enjoyable on a week night!
We always have fun there and the food is delicious! The owner goes out of his way to make everyone feel special.
Food was excellent. Our table was awful. It was clear from the start we were given a lousy table because we are not regulars. We sat at a table for two by the bar. I felt packed in. My husband had to get up twice to let people through to the back of the restaurant. I could see the back of the restaurant. We were there for over an hour and a half. There were empty tables of two in the other area that wasn't cramped. My husband would go back because the food was delicious. I'm not so quick to return.
We love Pana e Bene. The food is delicious, and the staff are wonderful. It’s a warm, friendly atmosphere.
Usually better all the way around. Seemed to be an off night.
The warm welcoming at door to highly professional server and tasty food explains the classy crowd
who come to Pane e Bene. We will return soon.
Difficult to hear the person sitting next to you. Food was ok, definitely not the quality I have eaten there before. And the price is high for just mediocre quality.
Second time we have been to Pane e Bene. Food and service are excellent. Good value too!
It was our Anniversary and the food/ambiance were perfect. Everything was delicious and tasty and we will be going back again.
They rAn out of the veal Milanese at 7:45 pasta was good
Great host and staff all around
The Best Italian food you could ask for 👍👍👍👍
Lovely service by a charming gentleman with a good sense of humor. Not rushed. Cozy atmosphere. In fact, space was a little tight. Food and drinks overall good. As we were there for a while talking and enjoying the time, the server brought us limoncello, complimentary. The personal touches are why I enjoy this restaurant.
Had a very pleasant meal with attentive staff. We'll be back!
Excellent service, food and was greeted by the owner! They brought homemade Limoncello at the end of the mean and drank with us! Wonderful experience and can’t wait to return!
Excellent and wonderful service!
Sat at a high top near the bar so lots of activity as you’d expect on a Sat night. But the service was friendly and prompt and the food was outstanding. A couple of different salads and two pastas were all terrific. Never fails to deliver.
My husband and I went to Pane e Bene for the first time on Saturday night. I think we were fortunate to get a reservation for 7:45 on short notice. It did not disappoint! There was a fun vibe throughout the fairly small restaurant and our table for two truly felt cozy. Food was quite good and portions generous. We look forward to returning!
Arrived punctually at 7:45 PM for our reservation and were seated right away. Waiter did not come to take our order until 8:15 PM and we finally got our food at 8:50 PM. Drinks comped due to the slow service.
Food was excellent
Great energy. Excellent authentic food. Owner very personable and involved. A great find, convenient to Sacred Heart & Fairfield Universities.
