Dress Code

Panificio has been a Beacon Hill favorite since its opening eleven years ago. Offering cuisine for every mood at any time of day, stop by in the morning for a fresh pastry and espresso or enjoy a full breakfast overlooking Charles Street. For lunch, panini, salads and pizza are available to eat in or take out. Or delight in a relaxing bistro dinner with a glass of beer or wine.

"Panificio was a bakery for years before adding lunch service, and just two years ago the hours extended to dinner, complete with beer and wine. The Italian flavor is enhanced by the decor of red tiles, red leather cushions, and red walls. Candle light from stained-glass votives at each table make it remarkably romantic for a bakery. With Italy on our minds we had to have antipasto ($9.95), a large plate of kalamata olives, hot peppers, slices of tomato, crisped prosciutto that tasted pleasantly of bacon, and fresh mozzarella. Tuna salad with capers and red onion and mixed greens covered in balsamic dressing were savory additions, and made the plate seem more like salad than antipasto. We loved it." - Amy Graves, Globe Staff
