Dioli’s in the Village

by Kristi Maier


A local restaurant has just undergone an interior facelift and name change in Reynolda Village. has reimagined itself from the former Pane e Vino featuring pastries, lunch and dinner and will now be a breakfast all day and lunch eatery.

I was just about to do a review of Pane e Vino, based on a two or three visits, and I had all these plans to talk about their delicious, freshly made pasta that all of you are missing. The best fresh pasta— and the Fra Diavlo with Clams. Ahhh—.oh, man. I’m going to miss that dish. The good news is, there’s a way you can get it. Just stick with me.

Owners Karen and Roger Dioli opened Pane e Vino two years ago after they closed their Trattoria downtown. A few of the staples from the 4th Street location remained, many Italian classics and their lunch offerings included sandwiches reminiscent of their Italian market and deli on Reynolda Road. Karen Dioli says that the change is something that they’ve been thinking about for a while. “We’ve really just been listening to our customers. This has been something they’ve been asking for—a place that they can get breakfast all day as well as grab lunch.”

In addition to freeing up some of their nights, Dioli says the set up will suit her and her husband. “We’ve enjoyed the market for the last 10 years serving deli sandwiches and pastries and it has really become a neighborhood deli. We think Dioli’s in the Village will become that too.”

The new spot will serve breakfast all day, pastries as well as deli sandwiches that the market fans love. As for the pasta? Well— Dioli says it’ll be available for special order as always at the market. Trust me, you’ll want to order the fresh spaghetti noodles and take it home. Serve with your homemade sauce. You won’t regret it.

Dioli says it doesn’t mean all their nights are free. “We’ve been asked for a while now if our village location can be rented for private events, but we haven’t wanted to interrupt dinner service to do that,” she said. “But since we’ve made the announcement about the change of hours, and now that it’s available on evenings, we’ve already booked multiple private events.”

It’s certainly a charming location. The space used to be the blacksmith’s shop for the Reynolds property. The Diolis also plans to host wine dinners in the future, when that delicious pasta might be featured. !
