Italian @ Pane & Vino in Ponsonby

  • Oct 17, 2012 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Originally we were going to be going to Bosco Verde in Greenwoods Corner, but a week out from our dining night and two weeks after booking, the manager phoned and wanted to change the terms and conditions under which we were coming. In the interests of our members and the philosophy of Food Social in wanting to go to places we truly feel welcome, we have decided to cancel the Bosca Verde booking and instead go to Pane & Vino in Ponsonby who have been very welcoming.

Here's their website information about their restaurant:

Tito has moved to New Zealand in 2004 with his family. After 20 years of experience with his family hospitality business in Vieste - Gargano Peninsula - Italy he took the challenge of discovering New Zealand and sharing with New Zealanders his passion for Italian food and good wine. He managed the iconic GINA'S Pizza and pasta bar for 4 years. He won the Lewisham Awards (2006) as creator of Gina's best ambience and style, and also he was a finalist as best waiter in Auckland category (2009). Pane & Vino boasts it is the first rustic Italian restaurant in Auckland. We use daily fresh ingredients we can get at cheap price in order to deliver to the table genuine Italian food a convenient price. At Pane & Vino you will find the regional Italian dishes you have tasted in Italy cooked In New Zealand with same passion by Tito. Mainly the regional dishes are from Puglia with basic ingredients of garlic parsley and extra virgin olives oil. Tito has learnt the passion for food from his Mum who is still cooking for family hotel business in Italy. Hospitality and great food are Tito's passions and he is now bringing this to the Aucklanders with PANE & VINO (which means bread and wine ) where you will feel that you are in Italy. Our restaurant is based on the belief that our customers' needs are of the utmost importance. Our entire team is committed to meeting those needs. We would like to welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best service in the industry.
