PHX: Anyone know what's going on with Pane Bianco?

Wow, Mrs. and I stopped by Bianco's to get a Mozzarella / Tomato / Basil sandwich that we usually share, and discovered that our sandwich suffered from shrinkage by approximately 40% : Paper thin tomato; thin and skimpy mozzarella; slight hint of basil - not the sandwich we used to drive out of the way for. Even the bread seemed smaller, thinner. Started digging around and discovered other food blogs with same dismay. Anyone? I want to take my friend to Pizzaria Bianco's but am hesitant to at this point.

  1. I was there 2 weeks ago, and didn't have the same experience. That sandwich was wonderful as usual (IMHO, one of the perfect foods in the world). No size or quality difference (same for the other sandwich we got, which was the salami sandwich).

      i agree - i eat there fairly regularly and haven't had a negative experience, or seen any shrinkage. its been about 6 months since i've been to pb, but i have a friend who's there once a month, a standing reservation for 6 ;) and she's never done anything but raved!!

        Maybe the people who made the sandwiches had an off day? That's the only reason I can think of.
