Food had little taste, and seasonings were not right. Our party of 5 was disappointed all around. Tasted like Olive Garden at triple the price.

If you want real Italian gourmet food in Westport CT, this is the place. Outstanding variety of menu choices prepared perfectly. Nice ambiance but relatively small. The kind of Italian restaurant where the owner takes a great deal of pride in serving you. Excellent sauce!...More

Angelo Capponi should open a Pane Bene in Manhattan! A "Must Go To Place" when you are in Westport. It tasted like eating my grandmother's cooking. Thank you Pane Bene Staff for such great food and service.

While the service was excellent I was unimpressed with the food. It was too bland for my taste. Italian food is typically more flavorful. Good news for the gluten free crowd. A terrific selection of GF pasta

What happened? Not what it used to be. Everything was just ok and with the amount of very good restaurants in the area I am likely not to return.
