    The food at Pane e Vino is amazing!! Our server, Kevin, was top notch...friendly and attentive, but not intrusive. The only downside is that it is a small, compact venue with activity swirling around you. It can seem a tad 'hectic', rather than relaxing. But, again, the food and service are the best!!!

    My family and I went Pane E Vino on a Wednesday and they had a very nice crowd. Our waitress who was very nice, was stretched to a point where she couldn't provide appropriate service. As far as the food goes I would have to say the portion size is huge for my taste but that is how our group felt. The food was mediocre at best. My wife had a shrimp dish and the shrimp were over cooked. I had gnocchi which are supposedly to be light pillows of potato dumplings, instead they were heavy lead balls. My son had rigatoni with sausage, meatballs,and fresh ricotta. The meatballs were dry and had no taste, the saussage was awful. There has to be better Italian food out there but this is definitely not place for good Italian or Foodies.

    The food was delicious, the service wonderful. We had the bruschetta with heirloom tomatoes, the lobster pasta with cream sauce and ravioli. All of it awesome. Our waitress was exceptional and I loved the fact that as busy as it was all of the wait staff were happy and smiling and welcoming. Great place. I would highly recommend it.

    The food is amazing - I've not had a plate here that didn't amaze me with how good it was. Most recently, I got the black ink squid fra diavolo and my boyfriend got the veal milanese. Both were absolutely delicious. The table was small and tucked away in the back of the restaurant, and we were very close to the couple sitting next to us (so close that when the waitress was taking our order, she was half-leaning on the guy at the table next to us haha... kind of awkward, but didn't ruin the evening. it's understood theres finite available space to work with). The wine was perfect and I appreciated the waitress opening it in front of us, realizing the cork was a bit dried out, and going to get a new bottle.

    Had a positive experience dining at Pane e Vino for the first time while hosting a visiting job applicant. The request for a table toward a quieter area of the restaurant via Opentable app was granted and the service was outstanding. The waitress helped to customize our dining with wine selection and entree recommendations that were perfect for our preferences. Enjoyed the calamari and beef carpaccio, and dinner with veal saltimbocca and seafood risotto. Dessert with tiramisu and sorbet. Service was unhurried and thoughtful, well paced. Delicious food, excellent wine, and high-level service made for an outstanding meal and left the right impression for my guest's visit to Providence.

    They were very busy the night we dined there. Had to wait twenty minutes past our reservation time but no big deal for me. Service was good once we were seated. Food was good but not memerable. Calamari was chewy and pastas were a bit too al dente. My lamb chops were quite good. My business partners said they would not eat there again but I would give them another chance. quaint restaurant and very nice people.

    We have tried many Providence Italian restaurants and found this one by chance one Sunday. The whole staff is friendly and knowledgable. The menu has a lot of options to choose from,each one unique and delicious. Food presentation was lovely and the wait staffs timing was perfect. An excellent choice of wines are available. The decor is beautiful throughout the restaurant. I am anxious to return and sample more of the delicious options from the menu.

    My husband and I were visiting from out of town so we based our decision to eat here based on the OpenTable reviews. Pane e Vino did not disappoint. Our server was attentive, but not overbearing. I had the evening's special app - fried zucchini flowers stuffed with locally-made ricotta cheese - my entree, the Tagliatelle w/ Porcini Mushrooms. My husband enjoyed the Bruschetta app and Mushroom Chicken. The pasta was fresh and cooked perfectly. Overall, a very nice meal. I would recommend it.

    Great restaurant which adds a touch of their own style to what they make. That being said, the meals are all familiar but have a bit of something else. For instance, if you ever go, try the bread pudding. It has a crusty top and is not the least bit mushy. Sat in the back which was very quiet. There is a porch area which looks nice. It was my wife's birthday and they had a card on the table waiting for her and some simple decorations.

    Set the reservation with a note about our 43rd wedding anniversary. Arrived to a window table sprinkled with shinny little stars and a thoughtful card for our anniversary. The entire staff is friendly, professional and attentive. From the basket of warm bread to the last sip of wine, our celebration was fun and memorable. Great drinks, fantastic wine list, scrumptious Caesar and the Fusili Napolitano was perfect. We'll be back and we'll recommend to our friends.

The table surprised us with a nice "Happy Anniversary" card and some stars scattered on the table. Everything was perfect. We are slow-appreciative eaters - we take our time, because, what's the rush? Our server, Allyson, matched our pace to perfection. We left on a floating cloud.

    Everything was great. We had an early reservation and it was still very crowded. We started off with the Formaggi Con Prosciutto, truffled honey is very tasty! The bread they brought out was great but the olive oil tasted old (the only negative of the night). I had the black squid ink with lobster fra diavolo. Be forewarned, this is VERY SPICY. My husband had the risotto frutti de mare, which was amazing as well. We were far too full for dessert but walked down the hill for the live music and walked around. Lovely evening, fantastic meal.

    Very busy Saturday night. Food was still good. Did wait a long time for it though. It would be great if every time the gluten-free person that you are eating with gets his rolls when the non-gluten person gets her rolls. It did happen at this restaurant once.

    Went for the 1st time 8/23/2014. The table we sat at had no room to move and it was by the kitchen. The entree was chewy pasta along with a very bland sauce. I had at most four bites and could not eat anymore. For my taste, horrible food. Can't believe they have gotten such great reviews. I will not be back.

    Six of us who all appreciate good food and have been to Italy found the meals excellent. Squid linguine with lobster was a standout. Bolognese well done, gnocchi smothered in cheese yummy, meatballs and sausage very good. Veal chop Parmesan delicious though chop a bit thin. Beet salad marvelous combo with goat cheese, excellent dressing and candied walnuts. Desserts generous in size and masterful. Waitress, Cassandra, upbeat and helpful, especially with the wine. Wonderful evening.

    Arrived at the restaurant and was seated promptly. We were offered a different table that was more spacious and took advantage. We tried the caprese salad special for our appetizer and it was amazing and fresh. For our meals I ordered the gnocchi and my friend ordered your version of saltimboca. I have to start off by saying I am a gnocchi fanatic and this did was the best I have ever tasted. I was so incredibly joyed but the tender pillows in such a delicious sauce. My friend enjoyed her dish but didnt love it. We also enjoyed dessert which was definitely something to save room for. Our experience would not have been as amazing if we had not been served by our waitress. She was outstanding, very knowledgeable and so friendly.

    Recently went with a group of 8 to Pane e Vino. We received a phone call from the manager approx 45 min before our 7:30pm reservation time to inform us that the previous large party had arrived late and our reservation was running 15-20 minutes behind. We all appreciated this call as it eliminated hanging around the restaurant waiting. We were seated at a round table, best for large group. Restaurant full to capacity and very busy. This did not interfere with service. Our server was prompt, polite, funny and efficient. All 8 raved about the food. Highly recommend

    Food and Wines reminded me of the great meals we used to have during four years of living in Southern Italy. Have sampled many Federal Hill restaurants but we always return to Pane e Vino when we need a taste of the real thing. Everyone in our party tried the $22.50 Prix Fixe special and no one was disappointed. The charcuterie appetizer was delicious and plenty for our group of four.
