Have gone to another Italian
Have gone to another Italian restaurant nearby & am happy to say Pane e Vino was better for many reasons....not as noisy, tables more private, food excellent.
We also thought the wine prices were very good....especially the wines by the glass.

Highly recommend. Our first
Highly recommend. Our first night visiting from Seattle, so glad my husband found this place and I was able to secure a reservation via Open Table. The wine was wonderful as was the food and service. Our 17 year old daughter and her friend said they could eat here every night of our trip. Although very diffiult given the dinner menu selection and baskets of warm bread that they are more than willing to refill, save room for the cheesecake.

Enjoyed the meal very much...started with insalata mista, followed by well-prepared fish. This was paired with a very generous glass of pinot noir. The fresh berries were staring at me from the display case, so what could I do? Served with a generous portion of zabaglione sauce. I will definitely come back to this restaurant, even though it is way out of my neighborhood.

Fine Italian restaurant in Marina.
I'm not sure I know what "foodies" are, but people who like good Italian food should be happy here. The service is excellent, and the menu is wide and varied. I had a spinach ravioli that was quite unlike any other I've ever had. It was very good. I can't see why anybody would not be pleased with this restaurant.
I'd suggest it's a good idea to be there by 6:30, if possible. It begins to fill up about that time.

Great meal for a reasonable amount!
We had an Italian dinner the night before at Venticello, an Italian restaurant on Nob Hill at Taylor and Washington. Our dinner at Pane e Vino was about half the price of and twice as good as at what we had at Venticello...and much less noisy.
The pizza and risotto were outstanding at Pane e Vino, and the waiter was friendly, yet professional. You cannot go wrong at Pane e Vino!

Great neighborhood spot
We reserved a table somewhat last minute on a Thursday and were very glad to have the reservation -we got a great table right by the window. The service was incredibly friendly and the pizza was very good. It is a small, neighborhood find - and I'm happy it just happens to me in mine!

Great any time
If we lived in San Francisco we would frequent this restaurant at least twice a month....we live in Sonoma County but this is our meeting place with friends when we head into the city. It is good anytime....lunch or dinner.....great food. Check out their grilled branzino...yum

Great food, great service
I had a lovely, romantic dinner for two this past Sunday at Pane e Vino. This was my first trip to San Francisco and my first time at this restaurant and the pasta dish that I ordered, pappardelle alla contadina, was perfection. The chicken was tender, the sauce flavorful yet light, and the pasta itself the best I've tasted outside of Italy. My beau's choice, the calzone, was an enormous portion but no less amazing in quality than it was in size. The service was excellent too-we received helpful recommendations from our server and our water glasses were refilled constantly. We did not have to wait for a table, yet the place seemed to be alive with many other happy guests. I would happily revisit this restaurant when I come back to San Fran.

Food and Wine selection good
Food was very good & we liked the option of ordering half carafes of wine. We usually start with white wine, then change to red with dinner & this is very convenient. Several choices of wine types in the carafes too!

As real an Italian trattoria as you'll find in SF, or anywhere. They get it right, don't over-reach or stretch to incorporated silly trends. Just high quality, authentic, beautifully done Italian. The wood oven is the source of the magic. Wonderful pizza with a bit of char, and so much more. The spinach salad with crispy sweet pancetta dressed with warmed balsamic is special. Some of the staff have been working here for over a decade, always a good sign. A non-trendy, high quality, friendly favorite. We always sit at the bar for dinner and watch the cooks work. Love it!

A reliable place!
Pane E Vino can always be counted on for a wonderful evening with friends; a place for a small or even large group with varying
culinary tastes; or for a quiet dinner for two. Excellent food, wine, and charming service for one and all!

"go to" favorite
We always enjoy the friendly service and excellent quality of food. The waiter and kitchen is very good about accommodating our dietary requests and we appreciate it. One note is that the tables are quite close together and restaurant quiet enough that everyone hears everyone else's conversations.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
We try to eat here every time we come to San Francisco. Always great food and service.

A Pleasant Surprise
I chose this place based on wanting an Italian spot in that neighborhood. We were supposed to meet there at 5:30 (kids involved) but my mom and sister got there before 5, and before they opened. Fabio the waiter gave them a big welcome and had them in, sitting with a glass of wine. His service, with the rest of the staff, proceeded from there, making us feel welcome and answering any questions we had. The food was great ( I had the veal piccatta) but it was the service and atmosphere (and 2 bottles of brunello) that really made the night.

I have been eating at Pane e Vino for over 13 years and the pasta and pizza never disappoints! Pane e Vino serves traditional Pastas, pizzas and specialty dishes. All pastas are mouth watering and quite memorable. The service is also outstanding! I have been served by the same excellent staff in the 13 years that I have been enjoying Pane e vino.

A find in cow hollow
Accommodating , great food, great wait staff.
We had originally reservations for four. Last minute change of plans with six additional hungry guests. They were able to accommodate all of us without a problem , even though they were booked for that hour.
Try the FRUITA DE MARE. It was outstanding and better than we have had in Italia.

Still a winner
A terrific neighborhood restaurant that qualifies as one of the best in the city.
Simple Italian cooking that has maintained its excellence for over 20 years. Not a fine dining space but comfortable and friendly.

like dining in Italy
We have been to Panne e Vino many times and it is always wonderful. I am a fan of Branzino and they do it perfectly.
One warning - the portions are huge so either order less or be prepared to bring half home.
The tables are a bit close together and a neighbor heard us talking about wine, introduced himself and gave us his card for his winery.We love that sort of thing but others may not.

Never Disappoints..Ask For Fabio
My wife and I first went here more than 10 years ago on a recommendation and we loved it. Haven't been there in years, but wanted to revisit as part of a business trip, and it did not disappoint. The place is cozy, local, authentic and tremendous. Love that its not a touristy place and truly a neighborhood gem in a world class food city. Each time I have been there Fabio (yes that's his name) has been our waiter. I have never looked at the menu, each time just turning the dining experience over to Fabio and Pano Vino, and each time it has been wonderful. My guests on this trip thought I was crazy, but agreed to just let Fabio handle it, and they loved it as well. Cant wait to go back.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good, but made reservation for table for 2, sit across from each other & chat.
They didn't, gave us exactly what I DIDN'T want, table for 4, had to sit neatly side by side, ? turn to talk...
Thurs 8:45-9pm, try to rush our order & us out...brought hot food as starting apps!
They wanna save $$$ by getting cooks out early...
Not good :(
