Pane e Vino Ends Two Decade Stand on Beverly

Pane e Vino

20 years after branching out from Claudio Marchesan and Pietro Bernardi's Montecito trattoria of the same name, Pane e Vino has closed in Beverly Hills. Eater reports that the restaurant, famed for its garden patio on Beverly Blvd., is finally submitting to that big, bad economy, having closed up shop following Saturday's service, while we can only imagine the strain any Italian feels competing in Westside L.A. Though only distantly related by now, Pane e Vino's Santa Barbara flagship and San Francisco depot are still in full swing, while an O.C. location closed last year. In the meantime, we'd love to hear your Pane e Vino memories in our comments as we leave it with a fond "arrivederci!" [Eater]
