Bologna Pane Vino e San Daniele
About Pane Vino e San Daniele
A short skip and a hop from Piazza Maggiore is this restaurant dedicated to San Daniele prosciutto, a typical ham from the Friuli region but served in time-honoured Emilia Romagna style.
The ‘Pane Vino e San Daniele’ brand was established in 1998 thanks to the creativity of the Fantinel family who sought to return to old Friulian ways of quality home cooking.
So, as well as prosciutto, they also serve Pasquini’s mortadella, bread from Castagneto which is made according to an old traditional recipe, tigelle and crescentine, pasta dishes and the regional polenta. They stock a large variety of Friulian wines as well as some local choices.
The interior is bright, warm and quite spacious. The service is also reasonably quick as most customers here tend to be office staff during their lunch breaks. In the evening, the clientele seems to be more mixed, especially around aperativo time when snacks and spritz are the usual options before dinner.
This large room downstairs is an additional jewel for this restaurant. When it comes to organising special events such as graduation and birthday parties customers can use this as their own personal domain and celebrate like there’s no tomorrow.
Opening times are from 10am until 1am, except for Sundays which is closed. Disabled customers can also be catered to here.
