Pane e Vino Restaurant Review: Lorton’s answer to fine Italian dining is this well-known restaurant that packs ’em in on weekends, drawing locals who congregate for convivial eating. Be sure to start with an appetizer such as the bruschetta or fried calamari, and check to see if the burrata mozzarella is on the menu. Or perhaps try the rice balls stuffed with meat and covered in a rich tomato sauce. Entrées span the usual categories of meat, poultry, pasta and pizza, and seafood. You’ll even find a salmon burger. Desserts are typically Italian, such as ricotta cheesecake. And by the way, check out the wine list of Italian goodies and the wine bar, too.
