Chef Angelo Serpe is the real deal - an Italian chef, born and raised in Italy. He and his wife Maria, along with the rest of the staff, make everyone feel welcome from the moment you enter. The food reflects what you'd eat in Italy. And everything is fresh and made from scratch. The bread is fresh baked, the desserts... More

Pasta E Pani has been in Virginia Beach for many years. Angelo,and his wife, Maria have created this popular and well loved Italian restaurant. The food is excellent ad well priced, the ambience is comfortable, but not fancy. They serve reliably great food. In 25 years, we have never had a disappointing meal. Every table was filled when we were... More

Always love coming "home" for dinner. Angelo and Maria are so charming and remember you and feel like a part of the family. The food is out of this world and true Italian. Love love LOVE Pasta e Pani!!!

Chef Angelo and his wife Maria are truly genuine, pleasant and down to earth folks. All their dishes are made from scratch (even the pasta) and the food is truly amazing and tastes superb. The new location is perfect and there is lots of parking. -- No more fighting the laskin road traffic.

My wife and I ate off the Restaurant week Menu on this visit. The bread and salads were both good. We had the Caprese and Caesar salads. My wife had the chicken risotto cacciatore. She said it was good but it looked like a bowl of stew. Since Angelo is such a great chef, I am sure it was as... More

My "go to" Italian destination when I go out, which is not that often. I know every time I go, the experience will be stellar, regardless of what day I am there. All of the staff are friendly and knowledgable. Angelo and Maria are the BEST!!! You won't be disappointed!!

We were a party of 10, four couples and two singles. We questioned the automatic 18 percent gratuity which would be charged as most restaurants no longer do this because of the IRS rule that changed in 2014. Then we read that they would not do separate checks for more than 8 people. We were told they would not do... More

First, I would like to apologize that our restaurant did not meet your standards. I would also like to address the IRS ruling on gratuity being added to parties of 8 or more. As long as we do not pay our employees at the end of the shift, and it is included in their wages, we are allowed to add... More

Pasta e Pani has been in various locations around Virginia Beach. They recently relocated in the Food Lion shopping center off of Great Neck Road. Their space is very small. Went there early on a Friday evening and the place was packed. Disappointed that the parmesan bowl pasta dish is not served on weekends--only during the week. Will definitely go... More

We went with the kids to celebrate my birthday. I am always looking for new location that make their own items (not using bought pasta). This is a winner, we all loved it. The place is small and a bit cosy (need a bit more AC). Appetizers: we ordered the Calamari which my kids loved (although I think it is... More
