    We have been fans of Panevino for more than 20 years and our latest visit did not disappoint. Fried Calamari is always excellent (this is coming from a family that orders it EVERYWHERE because of our youngest son). Clams were really good too. We had five different dinners at the table and all were excellent. The oreganata fish special (this time branzino) was fantastic. I think we've tried all the pasta dishes on the menu --- all interesting, all good. And you can't leave without having their orange iced tea. Save room for dessert! Our hostess and server were wonderful. Thank you for a lovely evening.

    My first visit had a number of criteria. The location worked for our situation. The nearby bridge construction was a challenge for one of us. The parking lot has ample spacing and was sufficiently lit. The house bread served with olive oil and fresh cracked pepper for dipping was offered. My children were comfortably welcomed and enjoyed their pizza. My manager, who travels extensively, enjoyed her meal, the ravioli of the day and chocolate panna cota. I also had the ravioli, which was very fresh, tasty, and filling. The tiramisu was light, fresh, and delicious. The generous portion was easily shared. We all enjoyed the sweetened orange iced tea, which were refilled in a timely way without request.

    We experienced eating outside in Panevino's lush summer garden. It was truly a good lunch dining experience. We all felt were in a Mediterrean village rest. dining garden, maybe Positano or Sorrento, Italy. Had shrimp, avocado citrus salad and fresh fruit with dipping sauces. Both were delightful.

    I've passed this restaurant so many times without stopping but have been curious due to the ownership together with a few NYC restaurants that I know. What a disappointment. This place has the atmosphere of a cafeteria and the food isn't much better. Won't be back.

    Dined on 6/20/2014
    When thinking about Panevino about why I would go there is to sit and relax in their very nice outdoor seating area and have a beer or wine with a salad, pizza, or other light food. With my most recent experience there the final bill was high relative to what we ordered and the food we received including the service. We even went so far as to calculate and deduct the bar bill to answer the question "what did we eat and what was so expensive"? An order of fish for $30 came with only a small potatoe side. As I right and think more about it the various foods we ordered arrived too fast. My wife ordered only 2 appetizers for dinner and we neglected to advise our server the proper order of delivery of each. Should she have asked.

    First timer at the restaurant being new to the neighborhood. Food was excellent and right portion sizes. Dishes were not over seasoned which my family loved. Size of dishes were just right even though I was really hungry walking into the restaurant. I look forwRd to bring family and friends again.

    We eat here regularly and always have a good time. We started soon after we moved to the area 14 years ago. We particularly like the salmon on top of one of their dinner salads, but the pasta and wood-oven pizza are also great.

    Our experience was very pleasant especially since we were hosting a dear friend. An attentive wait person only added to the overall feeling that we were important and deserving . The food was delicious and presented in a pleasing way. We were seated in the "porch" section of the restaurant, which also added to our most enjoyable experience. A definite recommendation is in order!

    Before moving out of the Livingston area 15 years ago, I held Panevino in high esteem; a real go to place for a great meal. We travelled to Livingston over the Easter Weekend and chose Panevino for a dinner for four. The Margarita Pizza with Arugula was excellent as an appetizer along with the eggplant appetizer. However, the dinner course of Chicken in Marsala sauce left me disappointed, the chicken seemed prepared separate from the sauce; no integration and was just so-so. The Black Pasta with rather small shrimp was good. The wine list was very limited. I wish the experience was better ... for old-time sake.

    We've passed Panevino at least a 1,000x and never considered it until Friday night when we chose it to meet out of town visitors for a late dinner because it was convenient. The reviews were good but I had no idea the food would be so delicious! Everything is fresh and flavorful even after "peak" serving hours. We've added it to our "go to" spots and look forward to our next meal.

    We have been going here for almost 14 years. The food and service is consistently very good to excellent. We were mildly disappointed that they were out of salmon this visit which is about the only time I can remember that happening. I was happy with the dinner salad that I usually get with the salmon and my wife tried the branzino that was great. Look at the menu, if you like the description, I expect you'll like the it there.

    This is a local casual italian restuarant that thinks they are in Manhattan. Charging $30 for a piece of cod, and $18 for ravioli is crazy. It is noisy and there are kids screeming and crying all over the place. Unless you have money to burn avoid this very over priced place.

    I met 3 of my friends for dinner on a week night. The menu was nothing special. One of us had an entree and the others had dinner salads. My dinner salad had 4 tiny grilled shrimp for $19.99. The entree was just ok, again nothing special. it arrived in a baking dish, no garnish, no presentation at all. I really hate when I order shrimp and i can barely see them on the plate. i would not recommend or return. There are too many Italian restaurants in the neighborhood that are better.

    I should have known when they had open tables for New Year's Eve that dinner would be disappointing. There was nothing festive for New Year's Eve and the dinner was bland at best. Chicken milanese turned out to be a over cooked breaded chicken breast that was dry topped with some dry lettuce leaves. I could have cooked something better myself and I am not a good cook!
