Description: PANE E VINO's essence is that of an Italian osteria where traditional Italian home style cooking is accompanied with family wines, grappas and a jovial ambience in which patrons visiting again and again end up feeling like part of the family. The food is fresh, uncomplicated and tasty. The family wines grappas along with a selection of regional Italian wines are available for clients to purchase on leaving the premises. Wine and Grappa tastings are also offered.

We tried Pane E Vino on Saturday lunchtime, the menu is on a chalkboard as I guess the offerings change quite frequently, the starter was really scrumptious Smoked Salmon Artichokes and Caper on Ricotta cheese, I opted for freshly made Tagliatelle in a light bolognaise sauce, my partner chose the Ravioli, both meals were a reasonable size and both very reasonably priced. This venue offer real Italian cuisine and the staff are knowledgeable and friendly, I would however suggest you bring your own wine as their offering is above average pricing.

We could have been in a small town in Italy, rather than a back street in Stellenbosch, even to the owner's family having their lunch on the table behind us and popping over to chat. The food was all fantastic - from delicious olive oil and focaccia and a range of starters - we couldn't choose so they laid on a bit of everything for us - to the mains [vitello al limone was incredible] and desserts [tiramisu was fab!], and of course their own wines and lots of italian imported wines! Definitely worth a visit!

Hey where do I start ? The wine is great!! The food makes you feel you are in Italy in a small family restaurant with all hand made authentic Italian fare.. You have to share a pasta for starters and have a mains. The veal is my favourite. You will come back for it.

A pure Italian restaurant with food that Moma used to make and that's what you'll get with smiles and service to match. Chef and owner Elena was there to greet us and Mike us feel at home. Very inviting ambiance small and cosy complimented with fine wines from their cellar and from Italy. Are only complaint is that it is not open for dinner

The food, the wine, the vibe - it's my favourite restaurant in Stellenbosch by far! Only problem is we always forget to call ahead and make a booking, and so there's no space. Because it's a small, family run place, there is limited seating, and what you see on the menu is all you can order, but it's always been great. Never had a single bad meal or experience there.
And you HAVE to try their Dalla Cia wines!
