    My new husband and I had just returned from our honeymoon and wanted to go out for a nice dinner on the hill. We had never been to Pan e Vino so we made a reservation. The valet was very quick and pleasant. Dennis was our server. We were served the wrong type of water by a different person, I received the wrong appetizer and waited 90 minutes to receive our entrees. With no appology given. While couples and larger parties around us were sat after us and received their meals before us. After we finaly received our meals, Dennis never came back to see is we needed anything. And we had to flag him down to ask for another glass of wine. I was so angry by this aweful service that we will NEVER dine here again, and we will let others know.

  • Our experience at Pane e Vino
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 8/30/2008
    Our experience at Pane e Vino was a disappointment. While the food is very good, they ignored the comments I made in making our reservation on Open Table, so my friend did not get the surprise birthday cake I requested for her. The receptionist and the waiter were unaware that this was a special occasion even though this was mentioned in the online reservation and they me called a day before to confirm it. Even with the reservation, we had a half hour wait for our table And instead of bringing the decaf expressos we ordered, they brought caffinated cappucinos, probably someone else's order. No valet was available when we arrived so we wound up parking the car ourselves. So, all in all, a less than stellar experience.

    We really enjoy this restaurant, however, why is it as with many restaurants, the specials are always about $10 more than the other comparable items on the menu. Sea bass $29 with 2 tiny potato croquettes and a little broccoli??? It was very good but nothing unusual. And the server NEVER tells the price with the elaborate description.

    Dined on 7/18/2008
    I've been to Pane e Vino before and really enjoyed their Italian fare. This time, we opted for the restaurant week special menu and were not as impressed with the main courses. Both appetizers and the fruit dessert were good. The wine was excellent both times. Servers were good, and some were very attentive - it felt like a slower night but perhaps that was because were were in the very back room with only 2 other tables occupied.

    The food was great. One of the best caesar salads I have ever encountered. I had a pasta Fra Dia Volo with seafood that was excellent (although a bit heavily sauced). My wife's rigatoni with fennel sausage was to die for. Our friends had a great veal marsala and rigatoni with several kinds of meat, also both excellent. Great bottle of Rosso di Montalcino. The only complaint was that the service was initially a little slow. Once our orders were taken, everything was very well paced. This would be a great romantic spot; the dining room is small and intimate. One of the jewels of Federal Hill!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 7/6/2008
    The food seemed to be un inspired. I thought that the food was under seasoned and bland. The brocoli rabe and sausage with orricette was flavorless and the hanger steak was too small of a portion. My wife had some chicken dish and although tender she said it had no taste. There didn't seem to be anyone in charge. The kitchen workers were loud and unprofessional. The waitress seemed bothered to be there. Of all the places in this mostly empty restaurant they seated us right outside of the kitchen. I hate to give negative feedback but maybe some good can come out of this review. Mike Madonick

    The 3 of us enjoyed it immensely and will definitely return. The only reason I put moderate for noise is when we first arrived, the party at the next table was using a cell phone and talking rather loudly, but, thank heavens, they were near the end of their meal and left soon after. I would have said something to management and had our table changed had they not left but it all worked out.

    While celebrating our 16th wedding anniversary in Providence this weekend, we dined at Pane e Vino (by recommendation from a native Rhode Islander.) We were more than impressed. The service was wonderful, the atmosphere delightful and our server made us feel like we were the only 2 people in the restaurant (which, by far, we were not.) We would recommend this restaurant to all of our friends and anyone traveling to Providence for business or pleasure. Since going out to dinner has become quite a luxury for us, having an enjoyable experience, coupled with great cuisine, made spending the extra money well worth it! Thank you for such a lovely evening.

    Food was excellent--bread and wine and everything else--whether ordered from the seasonal menu, the fixed price menu, or the evening special. A bit pricey and service was not quite as good as on our previous two visits, perhaps because of new hires, but it won't keep us from returning to treat ourselves every once and a while.
