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.

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 but very noisy. Requested a corner table when I made the reservation but did not get one. Difficult for a table for 4 to talk over the noise.

Nice bar. Very friendly owner. The dining is bright, a bit small. The food selection is diverse, meat, fish, good pastas. Everything is fresh and well prepared. Specials hit the mark.

Angelo and Alessandro and the nicest guys. The waitresses and bartenders are spectacular. This place is a local that feels like home. And the food and wine selections are outstanding.

The restaurant presents a menu with prices in the app. We were shocked to find out that the quoted prices for pasta were for half a portion... there were no full prices in the online menu. The food is mediocre at best. Overpriced and very bad value for money.
