Pane e Vino Providence
FantasticThank 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 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 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 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 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 AMAwesome dinnerWe had a great dinner on Saturday. My Salmon was overdone the first time out, it was taken back to the kitchen, my waitress asked if I wanted a salad to be able to pick on while my bf ate his dinner, I said ok, but the dinner was out so fast that by the time she went to get the salad, the meal was back, cooked perfectly and was delicious.
I greatly appreciate all the gluten free items. It was fabulous to have such a wide selection of appetizers (the calamari is fabulous!), pasta dishes, and even cheesecake for dessert...which is also very good.
Service was great.... we have been many times and each time our service is great, the staff is hard working and attentive without being over-bearing.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great meal, theAlways a great meal, the gluten free menu is a big plus.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMDining experience was fantastic,Dining experience was fantastic, prices are very acceptable, even in this economy!

Service is always terrific.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA little noisy for conversationA little noisy for conversation which is partly because we were seated in a section that was narrow and directly adjacent to the spot where the waitstaff was preparing the dishes for service to the patrons.
We had a nice meal and the staff was busy but very attentive to our wishes!!12/15/2012 12:00:00 AMPane e Vino is clearly anPane e Vino is clearly an award-winning restaurant due to its fine food, quaint ambiance, hospitable staff, and high-level consistency. One could not feel more welcomed in a restaurant, so it is like dining in the home of family or close friends. Kudos to everyone at Pane e Vino. We love you!!!11/26/2012 12:00:00 AM
