    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.

    Perhaps it was what we ordered but the food was just OK. In the past we thought the food was better. The best salad was swimming in dressing. The tables are VERY close together. A group next to us was so loud we could barely talk. I do't think we will be back. togq

    We are from the Boston area and never had been to Federal Hill. After doing some research we found Pane e Vino and we were so glad we did. The people are very nice, the atmosphere is comfortably Italian country charming and all od our food was excellent. I had the studded zucchini app and my husband had the Caesar. Both were excellent. Then we both were attracted to the bone-in Veal Chops available and we each tried our own veal dishes - fork tender - yum the best veal ever! And they even have complementary valet parking. Go! You will not be disappointed. We're already planning a return trip!

    This was the first time we've been to Federal Hill and we were recommended to Pane e Vino by a friend. Without having experienced any of the other many restaurants in the area, we still felt like it was a good choice. In addition to the delicious bread, we started with the house-made meatballs which were delicious as well as the Mista salad - also very good! My husband had the veal parm from the price fix menu and I had the Orecchiette and both were really good and very generous portions. We also had dessert - bread pudding and warm chocolate cake. Both were outstanding. Our service was also very good. Everyone who worked there was very pleasant. I wouldn't hesitate to return.

    Tried to give us a poor table, plenty were available as we had arrived early. That was fixed immediately when we asked for a different table. Why restaurants do that has always puzzled me. Service was very good. Salad was excellent and so was main course. Ordered bruschetta, toast was burnt, did not eat most of it. They took it off the bill. Finished with the bread pudding, boy was that over rated by other reviewers. Had wonderful conversation with tables on both side. Overall a fun place to go and would go back again.

    We arrived at Pane e Vino on Saturday night at 5:30 for a 6:00 reservation and they were able to seat us. Everything was AWESOME!! From the service, to the food, to the restaurant itself. My husband ordered a dish with fusilli, sausage and meatballs and he absolutely loved it. Our friend got the spinach salad and lobster raviolis which she said was great. Her husband got the meatball appetizer and the same dish as my husband and he loved his as well. I got the chicken parm and it was excellent (two huge pieces of chicken). The portions were good and the prices were reasonable. I highly recommend this restaurant!!

    Two minutes after we sat down, we managed to spill, not one but, two glasses of ice water. the young lady serving us and a young man rushed to our table and quickly changed the whole table cloth and wiped the floor. Outstanding! the bread was very good with flavorful olive oil and olives; the zucchini flowers were great! The pastas lacked flavor. For some reason it's difficult to execute pasta Amatriciana outside of Italy. the wine list is very honest. On Monday night with 1/2 price on bottles of wine, it came to less than what it retailed for. Looking forward to going back next time we're in town.

    Pane e Vino is another gem in Providence's Federal Hill. Four of us had dinner there recently and enjoyed the food and the atmosphere and, in particular the service. While we enjoyed all of our meal highlights were the Beef Carpaccio, Pan Fried Calamari, Roasted Beet Salad, the Bone-in Veal Chop and the Swiss Chard and Ricotta Ravioli. The atmosphere and ambience was delightful, and while crowded on a Saturday night, not too loud. We were very impressed with our server, Amanda, who displayed great knowledge of the wines and the menu and worked with each of our tastes to select the right wines for our main courses. A very enjoyable evening.

    There were four of us that went to dinner on a Saturday night. We had never been and all of us enjoyed our food. The waitress was great. I was asking questions about some of the chicken entrees and she suggested an off-menu option which was exactly what I was looking for. I didn't find it too loud in there - conversation was at a comfortable level. Lighting was not bright, but not dark enough that I couldn't read the menu. A couple of cons - The mixed drinks we a little weak. We arrived about 10 minutes late and had to wait at least 20 minutes for a table - so we weren't seated for at least 30 minutes after our reservation time.

Whether with family, friends, or business associates, it is now my go to place. The ambience, food, and service are second to none.

    The food was very good . I had lobster ravioli. The sauce was delicious but....I ordered a Cosmo. I have an allergy to limes which I informed my waited of immediatly. I told him no lime or lime juice please. I received my drink and took a small sip and sure enough, it was so sour and had lime juice in it. This could have been a very serious problem. Luckily, I only took a small sip and ended up with a coughing fit and a sore throat. I informed the waiter and he ordered a new one. I watched the bartender make it but was shocked when I tasted it. It tasted of coconut. Clearly the shaker was not properly washed after the last drink.

    Went here Friday with six people to celebrate my wife's birthday. Haven't been here for 4 years, so I checked on line for reviews. A lot said great food & service. So made the reservations and off we were. Waited for the table for 20 minutes , no big deal. Once seated the waitress had our drink order and things were looking good. The food arrived and we all became very quiet, though I did ask everyone about their dish. It went from just OK to terrible. So who is eating here thinking the food is "great", NOT. My dish was their new scallop risotto , 3 scallops over a ice cream scoop of not so good risotto, $26.00. Very disappointed. I will stick to Andino's and Siena from now on, always great.
