    Shared many pasta dishes -- which were good. Place was rather loud, but good energy. Veal chop was slightly over done. Waiter rarely checked to refill water and ice tea (good thing we ordered plenty of wine). Good but not great. For those prices, it should be great!

    Go here often and the food is consistently exceptional! We have entertained lots of friends here and always been pleased. This time our party of four all raved about our meals. The wait staff was great again.....friendly, very knowledgable about the menu and the wine options, and very accommodating of special diet issues. We had a vegetarian and a person on a gluten and dairy free regimen in our party who were both very happy with their meals! Finally the place is always lots of fun, crowded with people having a wonderful time.

    Decided that after hearing and reading about Pane e Vino I wanted to go for my birthday. What a great decision. What began as a small group of adults expanded to include children as well. They happily accommodated us. Dinner was wonderful...starting with a few appetizers we all shared. Salads were crisp and refreshing. All of us had the pastas which were homemade. I had the gnocchi with rabbit ( forgive me Easter bunny), someone else had the risotto with fresh seafood. I could go on and on. The entire wait staff was friendly, helpful and made us all feel welcome. Of course we couldn't pass up desserts and those were delicious as well. Had a wonderful birthday dinner and would highly recommend

    My family and I went to Pane e Vino for the first time to celebrate my mother's birthday. The service was great and they happily accommodated our health needs (steaming/sautéing vegetables sans butter). The seafood pasta dish was absolutely delicious as was the minestrone. The restaurant is cozy and a great place for a nice relaxing dinner.

    Having struggled to get a table on a busy saturday night, we were delighted to get a table on a quiet sunday night. We craved a good, authentic italian meal and Pane Vino did not disappoint. I highly recommend the seafood pasta, which was fresh, tasty and very filling, and my kids had two excellent pizzas, which were very generously sized...but they had no problems finishing. A great ambience and a fantastic meal...definitely worth waiting for. We will be back

    I have been coming to Pane e Vino for so many years now I have lost count. Always reliably good. Fresh, authentic, Italian food served by convivial waiters in a liverly but comfortable space. Fish specials are always fresh and tasty and the regular menu items never disappoint. Save room for the homemade deserts, especially the rasberry tart.

    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.

    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.

    Use to be one of my favorite Italian restaurants but haven't been there for years. Had a late dinner in their new location (use to be on Steiner, now on Union) and while it was okay, not quite as wonderful as I remembered. Gnocchi with gorgonzola was mild, barely could taste the gorgonzola. Bread was excellent, crusty. Perhaps if I had had an entree in addition to the pasta I would be able to see how the kitchen performs. Right now I would say meh.....

    Food generally is good, but mine & my friend's dishes this time were marginal. The pasta had a sauce that was a little on the lemony side, I think! The dish contained a sausage that was terrible. They had always had a sausage that was very good, but this was awful. It's a friendly neighborhood place that I'll go back to, but not for a while.

    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.

    Pane e Vino was once reliable in an authentic old-school way. But our dinner was mediocre in every respect. Seems like it's time for a change-up. Otherwise, it's not unlike Olive Garden except more expensive (and the bread is better).
