    We recently returned from a two week trip to Italy. Every day we dined at the finest restaurants and loved every meal. Our experience at Pane e Vino was simply an extension of that Italy trip. Molto bene! Lastly, it never hurts to be greeted by the friendly manager, Richard, who enhances our fine dinning experience.

    We dined here to celebrate a birthday & the food was wonderful! The service was also excellent. Our party of 2 was seated next to a large birthday party, so it was a little noisy for us. The other main issue was that we ordered a bottle of white wine which arrived warm. The server was very gracious and offered us a free glass of house wine while we waited for it to chill. Unfortunately, by the time it was ready, we were done with our entrees. However, the server was again gracious and took it back immediately.

  • Service and quality ...
    Latenightdiner
    Dined on 11/13/2014
    Service and quality were top notch. Everyone went out of there way to make sure we were satisfied. Very attentive staff. Food was very fresh and prepared well. I personally found the food to be, while high quality, not significantly different in taste than what I have had at many other restaurants. They do try variations on some themes, but to my taste buds they taste relatively ordinary. However, I am prejudiced and think that Providence has some of the best restaurants in the country. So in Providence, you have to be even better. Being equal too isn't enough. For instance, maybe a light sauce option on the asparagus rather than just plain, to add a different dimension. The red sauce was just ordinary - I felt I could make it at home with little trouble. My date agreed. That may be simply us though. The crowd seemed to like everything the way it was just fine. To end, I would recommend this place to anyone and since this was my first time would probably return to sample other dishes to confirm or refute this review.

    We chose this restaurant to celebrate our son's 25th birthday. I had requested a window table and they not only had a window table reserved, but had placed a birthday card and some confetti on the table. The food was outstanding, as was the service. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a special occasion or for anyone who appreciates fine Italian food.

    There were four of us who had not seen each other in a while and wanted a place to enjoy a good meal and to talk. Even though there were others dining close by, there was no problem with hearing our own conversations. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The plates were plentiful and delicious. The price fixe menu that two of us ordered was generous. The tiramisu was as light as air. Our waiter and staff were helpful, courteous, and unobtrusive. The manager came by several times to check if all was okay. Our every need was met. A truly lovely experience.

    We visited Pane e Vino last Saturday night with our group of 10 and had a lovely experience! The service was superb, the atmosphere was lively and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. The menu had many unique Italian dishes, as well as traditional meals. They were very accommodating with modifications we needed to make to the menu for a few of the dishes. I would highly recommend this restaurant, as we plan on returning again soon!

    Service was off the charts. From the greeting through the goodbye we couldn't have asked for a better experience. The food was absolutely delicious. The way the server presented the specials induced us to try them. and they were all excellent. Each plate was absolutely delicious! This was a business dinner and our clients strongly indicated that for their next trip to RI, they want to dine at Pane E Vino and want Jackie to take care of us.

    Pane e Vino remains a delight to visit. Outstanding food. Homemade pasta. Veal dishes. Venda lobster ravioli. Servers are knowledgeable and friendly. And on Mondays all wine either by glass or by bottle are half price. Dive in you won't be sorry. This remains our federal hill favorite.

    My first time at Pane e Vino and I had a great time. It was my birthday and they decorated the table with HB glitter and a card. The service was excellent, particularly a most attentive busboy. The food was very good. I have celiac disease and there was an extensive gluten free menu. I had veal parmigiano which I have not had in a while. Portions big enough for next day lunch. I will go back!

    Top notch service here, lots of action on a Saturday night, even though packed prompt and well-trained service staff. My only quibbles is that the entrees are HUGE, way too much food. They could lose a third of the portion --and the price. Or, here's a thought, offer half portions of pasta as so many places do. Very fair wine pricing, too.

    I always look forward to dining at Pane e Vino! No matter what I or my guests order, the food is incredible. For myself, the Carpaccio is THE best anywhere! The only problem we had this time, unusually so, was our server. Evidently she was new, according to the manager....but she was unlike any server I have ever had before in that her behavior was inappropriate....not the normal problems a 'new server' would exhibit. I can not imagine she will thrive as a server, anywhere. Regardless, the staff has always been incredible here and I highly recommend everyone to go.

    I made a reservation for my husband's birthday celebration with some friends. When we arrived at Pane e Vino's we were seated immediately. Our table was decorated for our celebration, however, the table wasn't in a very good section of the restaurant. We asked if we could be moved to a better table and the hostess was very gracious and did so right away! Not only did she move us to a better table but she moved our decorations as well! The food was yummy, I got the chicken parm with fusilli as did my friend, my husband got the veal parm with fusilli and my friend's husband got fusilli with meatballs, everyone was very happy with their meal and we all decided we would go back to Pane e Vino's and try some of their other menu selections!

    Dined on 10/4/2014
    We have been here many times with generally very satisfying results. Last Saturday night was OK but not quite up to their usual high standards. It was typically very busy but they were also serving a party next door. The beef chef's special was a bit oversold - good, not great. However, we will likely be back for another try given their excellent track record. The restaurants along Federal Hill set the bar high.

    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.
