Pane & Vino is open at the corner of Convent and Jefferson streets in the building that most recently housed Bonnie Bell’s Bistro. The Italian restaurateur’s business partners for the downtown location are Virginia Farmer and Paul Gibson.

Caprese, calamari, paninis and other traditional Italian dishes line the new eatery’s lunch menu, while heavier meals like Veal Marsala and Gnocchi are saved for dinner. Lunch prices range from roughly $9 to $13.

Pane & Vino is open for lunch Tuesday - Friday and for dinner Tuesday - Saturday.
