We were invited to attend the opening of an art exhibition in the center of Schoten on a Friday evening. Not happy with some chips and cheap wines on a Friday evening we decided to look for a cosy, not to expensive restaurant. You'll encounter a number of restaurants, brasseries and café's in the Paalstraat, but "Pane e vino" got our attention. The kitchen was not closed at 21:20 HR and that was already a +

The interior is really what I would expect from an Italian albergo or trattoria. A little over the top but charming after all, a little bit like the owner some may say. He was actually playing live piano, rather funny and not disturbing at all, even when sitting nearby the musician.

But what about the food and drinks? Well we were happy with 1 pasta con vongole and 1 pasta con tartufi, both generously served with the expected ingredients. And both dishes were not drowned in sauce, which is often a disaster... Well done chef! The house wine was a gentle chianti, which was honest from a quality price point of view.

We were happy and left with a recommendation from the owner: "Go and visit my brother in Mortsel who started a restaurant at Kasteel Cantecroy" We'll do! and ask for the free aperitivo. Grazie!

Was invited to go along fora dinner here, and good thing i did not have to pay here
Too expensive for what you get
They claim to enjoy tastes and quality of Italy, but not certain if the chef has been there or understands how the Italians coock
On very simple dishes they seem to be able to forget basic seasoning and spicing
Dishes are just missing flavour, even on basic simple ones that i can make better at home
For me i will not bother going there again, especially on those prices that you expect to see with higher quality restaurants in major cities, not in small towns

Entered the first time by accident, second time on purpose :-). First time we ordered a la carte, good quality of food, nice wine. The restaurant is a typical Italian family restaurant. Second time we took the menu witch is price/quality good.

This restaurant is family-run and the service is great. The food is good but not really Italian. I had the minestrone and, though it was tasty, it wasn't really minestrone. The grilled red tuna I had next was excellent and everybody in my party enjoyed their main courses. We were offered a free bottle of wine because service was slow due to an “accident” in the kitchen. All in all a pleasurable experience though a little pricey for what you get.
