    Great dining experience! Very friendly, knowledgeable and efficient staff. Free valet parking was a GREAT feature too...for a very crowded neighborhood. Really worth checking out if one has not been yet. One minor issue...a kitchen staffer kept one of our party locked out of the one-person men's room for way too long while making a lengthy cell phone call. Take the cell calls outside, guys!

    We had been to Pan E Vino 3 times and on the third time had decided not to return. It had been just "OK" However we had recieved a few gift cards over the past year and needed a place in Providence to meet our son and new fianace. We decided that since dinner would be our treat we would go to return with our gift cards. We were pleasantly surprised. Our waiter, Dennis was great. Attentive but not overly so. The food was excellent. Loved the complimentary olives and bread. We had the spinach salad that I thought might be to heavy but was light and crisp. Three of us had the veal chop. again excellent. One of us had the gnocchl and said it was the best she ever had. They also have great speccials from 5-7 for $19.95. Perfect for a celebration

    They were a little backed up on the reservations, so we had to wait for about 30 minutes...that was okay, but the waiting area was really insufficient as there was a large crowd waiting. Also the first hostess was no where to be found for quite some time to be able to assure people that they were doing all they could, but then another woman came out and seemed to have a handle on things. Not a big deal, except that there were several unhappy people in the waiting area and one of them was completely obnoxious and was using foul language in the area and to the hostess--I dont blame the restaurant for this, but it was hard to forget about it as my kids were wiht me...

    The food was very good. The wine list was long and had many choices. Waitress was knowledgeable and very helpful. Service was ok, weren't treated very well when we were seated. Hostess was very nice when we first walked in, greeted us by name, and told us our table would be ready shortly. In a few minutes, we were told our table was ready and taken there by a host, who sat us, tossed a drink special menu on the table muttered something and walked off. Our waitress arrived shortly, took our drink order, gave us the specials and disappeared. She came back in a few minutes, took our order, sans drinks. a while passed before our salads showed up with our drinks. would like to have had our drinks first. The rest of the night went well.

    I was very disappointed with our meal. All entrees were mediocre, at best. No one in our group finished his/her meal which is unusual for us - a group of food lovers. The red sauce lacked flavor and vibrance; it was totally missing that burst of brightness that is present in fresh tomatoes. Even traditional (easy) Italian foods/preparations were disappointing. The risotto was glue-y, the food poorly seasoned and poorly presented on the plate. The menu was unimaginative and wasn't seasonal- there are so many great spring foods/flavors! My husband commented that when I make those dishes at home, they are way better. We went there for a special occasion and I felt really bad that the experience wasn't better. I should have cooked at home.

    On a recent evening in May, our group of four dined at Pane e Vino. As the weather was warm with a light breeze, we were delighted to be seated by an open window looking out at the charming Federal Hill night life. This wonderful Italian restaurant is our absolute favorite! The food is consistently delicious and the wait staff friendly and efficient. We began our dinner by sharing an excellent Bruchetta and Ensalada Caprese. Our individual orders of seafood, veal, and pasta followed and throughout the meal we enjoyed wine and cocktails. To complete our feast, we shared an assortment of Italian cookies and fruit. Everything we were served was excellent! We are pleased to highly recommend this wonderful and intimate restaurant.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 5/1/2008
    I had heard raves about the restaurant, but we found the food underwhelming. The lobster and shrimp in arrabiata sauce was way too oily, which ruined the flavor, and the mussels in spicy tomato broth were gritty and the sauce lacked depth of flavor. The veal marsala had good flavor but was also greasy. The best dish was the rigatoni with meatballs, sausage and ricotta. Heavy but yummy. This is an okay red sauce Italian place, but there were too few selections in that category. This place would probably excel at chicken parm, but it's trying to be more than it is. After just coming back from Chicago two weeks ago and being blown away by three restaurants that were comparable in price and size, this one paled in comparison.

    I was one of four, and the others said they enjoyed their food. So maybe I just made poor choices this particular evening. But I would not go back, based on my experience. I ordered a ceasar salad, which had way too much dressing. Then a grilled shrimp dish with risotto. The shrimp itself was excellent, but no amount of salt could bring out any flavor in the risotto. For dessert, I ordered flan, which is my favorite dessert. I was very disappointed. It was not baked with a caramel sauce, but rather a too sweet, and too thick (maybe bottled?) caramel sauce was drizzled on the side. It did not taste the way it does when the flan is baked with it. Why would you even bother serving it if you're not going to do it right?

I ordered the Crustaceo Fra Diavolo and requested NO lobster (allergic) and not spicey. well..you guessed it...it was spicey and WITH lobster. I should have said something when I noticed this but I did not want my guests to have to wait while my correct meal was prepared. The waitress asked me if she should wrap it to go when clearing the table and it was a shame that it had to be thrown out, but it had to be! but everything else was wondeful! Thank you!
