Pane & Vino La Trattoria
Though Chef Alberto Bandini left his native Italy for the United States, he keeps his homeland close at hand in recreating its delicacies at Pane & Vino La Trattoria. His dishes add modern flair to Italian classics, like the new craze of decorating the Colosseum with smartphones. Entrees of baked Cornish hen come marinated in mustard cream and honey, and handmade gnocchi pair with a Morellino-wine cream sauce and gorgonzola cheese.
And though the plated creations are often upscale, they are presented to diners amid a convivial and comfortable atmosphere. Intimate wooden tables are surrounded by rustic touches such as wooden flower boxes, teapots, and clay pots overflowing with dried pasta in the dining room, while umbrellas and palms provide shade on the outdoor patio.
