Resplendent tones of orange and yellow

With resplendent tones of orange and yellow spilling out of its large windows, Pane e Vino is a glowing ember which adds life to an otherwise soulless strip of Maoming.
So perhaps our meal was a tad disappointing because our expectations were set so high. Both the Caesar salad (RMB 48) and the Zuppa di Legume Misti e Orzo (bean and barley soup, RMB 43) were oily and uncreative. And while the Angnello allo Scottadito (grilled lamb chops with pancetta and spinach, RMB 178) was pleasant, the Pizza Capriccosa (RMB 78) suffered from a shortage of cheese. With well-meaning but slightly unprofessional service staff, we wondered why this restaurant was so crowded. The answer came at the end of our meal, in the form of a heavenly tiramisu (RMB 48).
