Pane e Vino Providence
New in the cityThe food is good, and vegies even better. We ordered sea food disches and they were really spectacular. The wine is also something remarkable. We have had the opportunity of being around the world, and in Europe specially, and this food is comparable to the best restaurants in Paris and Germany. One recommendation: we ordered Porto wine with our desert, ideally we would've loved to have fruit (berrys any kind), and sorted cheese, but we have it with a chocolate cake because you don't have that in your menu (maybe too European, and people don't eat it in this area). Maybe something to consider adding in your menu in the future.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerThe service was excellent, all the staff very friendly. Food was excellent, perfect portions.

Recommend highly.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMNice & cozyWent here with a small group this weekend. The place is small, but the lay out is decent and you don't feel too cramped. The bartender made delicious drinks, and our Waitress Allison was knowledgable and friendly. Our meals were a pleasant surprise...each one, from appis to seafood to meat to pasta...everyone commented on the portions and taste. We were all impressed. It's a hidden gem, as it's not in the middle of the "busiest" part of the hill. You won't be disappointed!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGirls nite outWe arrived a little early for our reservation and were seated right away. We were seated a window table as I had requested. Waiter came to the table promptly and asked if we wanted water or any other drinks. The wait staff was very attentive and returned several times to see if we needed anything. Everyone one in the party had some kind of a seafood dish. Three women had the seafood special and liked that it could be prepared a few different ways. Portion sizes were not huge but by all means enough. Everyone enjoyed their meal. No complaints. Even though there were people waiting to be seated when we finished we were not rushed to pay the bill and leave. All in all a very pleasant dining experience.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently goodWe are never disappointed at Pane e Vino. Menu selections are extensive though not overwhelming. Very good selection of wines to compliment food choices. Knowledgeable waitstaff. Comfortable seating. Valet parking.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food, service, ambianceEverything about this restaurant was wonderful. The food was delicious and the service was exceptional.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMBest GF Menu/Excellent CuisineI met my two college roommates here for a Saturday night dinner. Pane e Vino is cozy, yet vibrant with a broad menu of Italian cuisine.
I have celiac disease and require a gluten free meal, which is why we chose Pane e Vino -- they have the most extensive GF menu I have seen in 10 years! The food was excellent, as was the service. To start, we shared the GF calamari and GF ceasar salad (complete with 'rustic' gf croutons!). I enjoyed the GF Chicken Piccata while my friends both ordered a chicken, ziti dish with tomato cream sauce. We all agreed it was wonderful and we will be back!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodThe food was delicious. The service was wonderfulf. My wife and I are slow eaters and we tend to take out time and make a evening outmof it. There were several coupled that had came and went while we ate. Out waiter was perfect at the pace he brought out our dished and the meals of the other customers. He never interrupted us but was always there when we needed him. It is very rare to find a restaurant that can serve a meal so perfectly5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMBusy Saturday NightOverall experience for a party of 4 was very good. Very busy Sat night with 8pm reservations. Arrived early and were seated about 15 minutes late. However, we waited a full hour for our meal once seated. Apparently the kitchen was hit with a bunch of orders all at once. Our waiter was mostly attentive, but drinks were not always filled when asked. He offered us a free drink, which was nice...but food arriving past 9pm was unreasonable. When we got our meals my shrimp was overcooked, although the flavors were great in the risotto. My friend's scallops were wonderful, as were the rest of the dishes. Manager asked how everything was and when I mentioned the shrimp she took it off the bill. Would try again, but on a less crowded night.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGraduation weekendWent here for Brown graduation celebration. Absolutely fabulous food, Mike was a very friendly and attentive waiter. Although the restaurant was crowded, orders for 6 people came out at a great pace. We love this restaurant-one of the best on the hill.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMCould not be betterTook my wife here for her birthday and I have to say it was the best meal we have had in a very long time. Service was stellar and the food was even better. You can tell that they take great pride in what they do and it was refreshing to see it done right. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to have the perfect night.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe nicest staff in town!I dined at Pane e Vino as part of a large group. Our server Amanda was truly outstanding -- attentive, knowledgeable, pleasant. All of the staff we encountered were great people. The food was excellent -- I recommend the squid ink pasta with lobster. And the bread pudding is the best I have ever had.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely fabulous!This was such a perfect dining experience. It was a very busy night, and we were seated a little past our reservation time. The hostess, which was a young girl, ensured that we were comfortable while waiting for our table. She even offered to bring us drinks if we so chose. When we were seated, the hostess had put us in the front dining area overlooking the street. It was such a cozy spot with candle light and perfect for our group of 6. Then our waitress came. Wish I could remember her name because she was GREAT. Very attentive, knew the menu inside and out and made excellent suggestions. Our food was to die for. Homemade pastas, delicious filet minion, scrumptious fresh scallops. I would recommend this restaurant 100 times over..5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were a party of six andWe were a party of six and all of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The service was great inclluding the hostess and waiter. The experience exceeded our expectations. We will definitely go back again.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Italian FoodAmong the restaurants on Federal Hill this is one of the best. Tables were crowded together and it was noisy. Too many people jammed into the restaurant.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMMemorableGreat place to celebrate our son's graduation! Food and service outstanding.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMChanges...Have been coming here for many years and greatly enjoy their early dinner special..especially the eggplant..found that the meals have changed both in presentation and quantity of food..we were placed in the front room and very isolated from the rest of the restaurant which definitely reduced the ambience of the experience...the waiter(new to our party) was impatient, bouncing from one area to another and did not provide a quality experience..hope not to see him on my next visit..5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFantasticThank you for an amazing service Kim. Everything was just perfect, and thank you for having such a wide selection of delicious gluten-free product, especially that cheesecake.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMLooking forward for my next visitFood was great - staff was friendly and attentive... My only negative was that my reservation for 7:00 pm (I arrived a few minutes early) didn't find me a table until about 7:15 - But it was well worth the wait, and I was very happy to have tried this spot for a first time. :)5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent, as usual!This is our Federal Hill go-to! Really enjoyed the Mother's Day ahi tuna special...light and refreshing!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food and very attentive,Delicious food and very attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly waitstaff. I highly recommend it.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food but a long wait!We live in Boston and come here every time we are in Providence (usually when we come down to run a race). This time around, a couple things went wrong. First, we had a reservation for 7pm. We showed up, valet parked the car and walked in the door at 6:55pm. We waited 45 minutes to sit down (for a table of 2). We barely received an apology and were certainly perturbed when finally seated. I would at least suggest that you offer a glass of wine while waiting (not even for free but as a convenience).
Then when we returned to the hotel, we noticed that there was white paint on the back rear corner panel of our car (thanks to the valet service). We called the restaurant on Sunday and are still waiting on a return call (Tuesday now).5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOur party of 3 had 8:30pmOur party of 3 had 8:30pm reservations and despite a lot of diners waiting for tables we were seated on time. Wait staff was excellent as was the selection of wines and entrees. All of our meals (chicken, 2 pastas dishes) were well prepared and portioned. Noise level was vibrant and yet not enough to preclude comfortable conversation.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe'll be backEven at 6:30pm on a Saturday evening, the restaurant was very busy and stayed that way for our entire stay. That may have been because it was Mother's Day eve, however, we never felt rushed and our waiter was very informative and helpful. We had a wonderful meal but did not leave room to sample the wonderful selection of desserts. We will definitely visit again. Highly recommend.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a very pleasant firstHad a very pleasant first time experience at Pane e Vino. Our dinners were excellent, and our waiter, Richard, was attentive and professional, but also added to the fun.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Restaurant excellentGreat Restaurant excellent food nice ambiance attentative servers.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent experience!Great food and excellent service.

We love celebrating special occasions here.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently goodFood is very good and consistent, service is respectful but somewhat amateurish. That said, definitely a place I would return to, but not a place I crave.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMHighly recommended!Great experience for our whole family!

different dishes and sampled off each others plate and each meal was unique and tasty. highly
recommended.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPane Perfection!Everything you could hope for on a nice night out for dinner.
Starting with the service: I think our server's name was Natalie? She was lovely. She was training a new server, but it never compromised our experience, it may have even enhanced it. Both were spot on.
Now the meal? That was incredible: My companion and I like to order slowly, and try a number of items. We started with shellfish, moved onto a pasta (which they split without us asking), and two entrees, scallop and veal. The entire meal was perfectly prepared.
I live on Cape Cod, where restaurants like this are few and far between (unfortunately). I can hardly wait to schedule another visit, because I'm sure the experience I had a Pane e Vino is the norm. B4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMPane e Vino is an outstandingPane e Vino is an outstanding restaurant. It stands out among strong competition in the providence market. We travel extensively and can assure that this experience won't disappoint.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSERIOUSLY Wonderful food -SERIOUSLY Wonderful food - attentive thoughtful service. Very fun atmosphere. Never never fails to exceed expectations.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMNo lamb at Easter :(We love Pane e Vino and go there regularly. We made a reservation several days in advance for Easter Sunday at 6 pm. I was going to cook lamb but when I received the e-mail that said lamb was on the menu for $22 we decided to take our group of 5 there. It was very disappointing to find there was no lamb as well as many of the menu items.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat...as usual!Of all the visits to Pane e Vino, I don't think we have ever had a bad meal or experience and our last visit was no different. The food and service were outstanding as usual and at this point something we have come to expect from one of the area's nicer restaurants.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMMy go to restaurant for specialMy go to restaurant for special occasions.

They always seem to deliver an outstanding meal with service and attentiveness that is second to none.
Monday is an excellent day to give it a try when all their wines, bottle and glass, are half off with dinner. A deal that is almost too good to be true.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAmoung the top restaurantsAmoung the top restaurants on Providence's Federal Hill3/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
