Unidentified Foreign Object found in my husband's soup. Actually it was a large ragged piece of clear cellophane such as used for bagged vegetables. We pointed it out to the waiter who removed the soup and of course didn't charge us for it. During our entrees ($28 for a very small very thin piece of branzino although my husband's homemade...

Hi Elaine, Thank you for your review and feedback. From the looks of it you and your husband did over all enjoy your meals which is wonderful. As I mentioned when I stopped by, I was incredibly embarrassed by the carelessness in the kitchen and spoke to my chef in great detail about this after the fact. We do absolutely... More

Our friends raved about this place but we found it very average Italian food at above average prices. The tables are very close together so it is hard to have some privacy, we went on a Friday night and it was full so it was rather loud also. the service was pretty indifferent.

Pane e Bene is a hidden gem in Westport,Ct. My husband and I decided to go for a casual Saturday evening dinner at Pane e Bene. Called in at 4:30 p.m. for reservations and left a message. Alessandro returned our call immediately and was very apologetic that unfortunately they did not have an opening for 7p.m. dinner. Half an hour... More

The food was okay but what a strange space. It's a long narrow room. My friend's food was good enough but my linguine with clams was not. We left unimpressed.

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.
