Pane E Vino is recognized as one of the finest casual Italian restaurants in Marina/Cow Hollow. Chef Bruno Quercini, who hails from Valtellina, Italy, has been recognized as one of the Bay Area’s top chefs by Zagat and the San Francisco Chronicle. It’s no real surprise, as Chef Quercini’s dedication to his craft includes making his own sausage and curing his own meat using centuries old methods from his homeland. The menu allows guests a full culinary tour of Italy, with a wide selection of antipasti featuring Chef Quercini’s own sausage and cured meats, house made pastas, traditional Italian entrees and pizza cooked in a wood fire brick oven, and a full dessert offering well worth saving room for. The wine list is extensive, showcasing both Californian and Italian vineyards. When those cravings for Italian food cannot be suppressed any longer, it’s difficult to imagine a better way to quell the urge to splurge than a visit to Pane E Vino.
