Pane & Vino
Pane & Vino is located in one of the most touristy spots in South Beach, right at the entrance to Española Way. But one of the best things about this place is that it doesn’t act like a restaurant that caters exclusively to tourists. Pane & Vino actually makes an effort, serving solid pasta (which they make fresh in the restaurant’s front window) and other Italian dishes. The slightly cramped dining room is cute too—perfectly dim, a little romantic, and littered with tchotchkes that’ll give you something to look at if the conversation stalls. Pane & Vino will surprise (in a good way) your friends who are sick of South Beach. We still wouldn’t prioritize it over the nearby Macchialina, but it’s worth keeping in mind for a casual date night or whenever you’re strolling around South Beach craving a big slab of meaty lasagna.
