Pane e Vino - Brooklyn Ratings and Reviews
Okay for my 40th (August 2nd) I wanted to dine someplace nice but not too expensive, after reading the reviews I selected this place. Upon entering the establishment I thought okay cool, no one greeted us. I see at hostess booth -no hostess ( or at least what I thought was hostess booth) okay so the nice bartender lady came around and seated us , I explained I had reservations, now I don't expect the bartender to know this but since there was no hostess to greet and seat us she did the best she could do. So I love my waitress /bartender( yes she ended up waiting on us all for the whole time we where there and she is gorgeous looks like a more feminine version of Michelle Rodriquez the actress, whom my boyfriend is crushing over) she was attentive, thoughtful, I ordered an entree which sucked when she came around asking how we like our food I told her the truth! It sucked , without hesitation, or me having to explain why I don't like it, she immediately said sorry to hear, did you see something else on the menu you want, I'll take this back and off your bill - any recommendations to kitchen abt the dish?
WTF amazing customer service!!! Drinks were good too! Atmosphere was nice, good looking Italian men walking around ( I guess they were the owners) So me and my boyfriend had eye candy the whole night. Upon leaving one of our guest left their food on the table, we where standing outside deciding what to do next , and guess who came out to being the bag my friend forgot! My waitress/ bartender superhero. So if the restaurant reads this please give that young lady the only promotion or raise. You owe her ( I don't remember her name, but you know who I am talking about) because I seriously was annoyed as the customer when nobody was there to greet patrons even with reservations!!
I've been coming here for years and it never disappoints. I wish I had been told that there was a huge wedding shower party due during my last visit but otherwise, it's always pleasant and I can hear my friends talk when we sit in the back garden area. The food is always reliable and I love to come here for a comfort food pasta.
Had to sit outside on the patio because the music was entirely too loud to be in the same tiny room. The music was good just too loud. So we chose to sit outside, while the food was good, it wasn't good enough to recommend. I had the risotto, it came on a plate in its colorless state with a pice of parsley in the middle. No effort to dress it up and it was really too salty for me. The only two out of six really enjoyed their choices.
My friends and I went to Pane e Vino to have an afternoon brunch. We arrived at 2PM, our reservation was for 2:30PM. I walked it and sat in the chairs nearest to the door - was never greet, asked if everything was okay, asked if we needed a table or anything. The employees simply looked at us and continued serving the other customers. Granted there was an event going on, but we weren't even acknowledged for 45 minutes. I got up and stood by the hostess stand, the employees continued walking back and forth, blatantly ignoring me. My party had to ask to be seated, we had to ask for menus, we had to ask for the server to take our orders etc. The menu indicates that tea and coffee comes with every brunch meal. No one at my table got either. I will say that the place is beautiful, especially the patio area. It is great for events, based on my observation the people who were apart of the event taking place got great service. The food was good as well but the service needs a lot of work.
restaurant was off in Sunday. . . Not up to its usual standard. . service was not good, food was till very good! . back area was cold because a panel was missing from the ceiling. . by the time we finished our meal, was when the manager had the panel. put back in. . Why did it take until 6pm to do that????. . manager made no effort to comp drinks or buy dessert for the table to apogee for the situation. . We have been there numerous times and I have to say this was the first time we were very disappointed. . even more so because we took friends there who were from out of town. . Food was good as usual, service was not as good as it usually is. . I'd go back but no with a sense of caution.
My sorority sisters and I came here for dinner to celebrate our 5th year anniversary. This place has a back patio that is heated (in the winter) and very nice both in the daytime and when the sun sets. I especially loved the authentic Italian feel with the brick walls and plants all over. We had a great time here and the food was also good. I will say the lobster was a little bland (possibly due to the way it was cooked) Nontheless, we didn't have an issue with anything else. Our waiter was very accommodating and made sure we were always ok. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and I'll be returning in the future.
Dino is the best! He is extremely attentive and literally knows you are going to need something before you know you are going to need it. Truly the best service. The food is always amazing and there is a live salsa band there on weekends. Try the grilled calamari!
I was pretty disappointed by Pane e Vino, although I didn't get a chance to taste much of the menu. The bruschetta was standard at best, using pressed bread and overly-garlic'ed tomatoes. The calamari salad was poor, with a weirdly unpleasant flavor of old seafood that permeated the greens.
Me and my husband we were looking for a place to had our last minute celebration, we couldn't ask for something better that this Italian restaurant, the service was great since we step in, food was delicious and perfect, friendly environment, definitely a place that everyone must go. It's a yes yes yummy !
See you soon Pane Vino !
Walked in and had a reservation, and the bartender directed us to the hostess who wasn't at the podium. She asked what we were there for... i told her we had a res for 2... she then asked if we were there for dinner (umm yes), and if was just the two of us (uh yes again). And then asked if we wanted to sit in enclosed patio - I asked if it was cold, she said no, so we were okay with that. And then instead of showing us to the table (20 yards away) she gave the menus to a waiter, so we followed him, but then he gave the menus to another waiter, who seemed confused. Finally i asked if we were supposed to follow him and he did show us to a table.... which we say at... for 20 mins... without a waiter coming over. AND the patio was cold - other tables were complaining, as I ended up keeping my winter coat on. So for service I give it a "poor" although the waiters themselves were nice enough - the hostess is a joke and needs to figure out what a hostess does.
For the food - sub par, not impressed but we ate it. We got avocado bruschetta as a app - a waste of money as it was literally just a couple of slices of avocado on a slice of Italian bread. No other flavors. I ended up having to add salt abs pepper and oil to have it not taste so bland. We also got caprese salad - again it was bland, no oil no reduction- just sliced tomatoes, mozzarella and a little basil. I got gnocchi with pesto - it was good, but not amazing. My friend got bolognese which i thought was salty. And we split a bottle of wine - and the wine list is very much lacking. You order by the kind of wine not the label - which means they only have a house wine for each. And while we are wine drinkers, we both left full glasses on the table -- there is only so much cheap-not-good wine you can drink (even after you pay $30 for it).
Plenty of better options in the neighborhood. Not sure how this place has high reviews...
Rsvp was cancelled. It was extremely loud. For an Italian spot, having a Dominican band was too much for me. Used to live in Washington heights years ago. Was looking for a quiet night out w/fantastic drinks and food. Not my kind of spot. Also was never greeted at my table when I sat there for 15 minutes. Will never come back
Great place to celebrate with friends. I ordered the Lamb well done but when it came it was a little under cooked I told them and it was taken care of immediately. The snapper was excellent....my two friends ordered the snapper and ate all of it. Great for birthdays...they make you feel very special. If you want to find out you will have to visit. It was a Saturday night and they had a live band I got up and danced salsa. All around it was a great birthday celebration. Thank you.
It was my friend's birthday. They had the band come out and sing happy birthday with
a Latin twist. They also brought out a piece of cake with a candle. She was very surprised. They did not rush us out when we lingered long after the bill was paid.
The backyard was all weather and festive,
and the waiter didn't mind lots of substitutions we ask him to do on the menu.
What a hidden gem! It doesn't look like anything spectacular from the outside but the food here was incredible! I had the lobster & tomato soup as well as the homemade lasagna. The lasagna was by far the best I've ever had in my life! My boyfriend had the chicken parmigiana. It was perfect! Flattened and lightly breaded and the right amount of cheese. The lemon and peach sorbettos are also made in house! This was a meal that I could have had in Italy. It was incredibly authentic, inexpensive, and perfect in every way!
Service was terrible. We were one of 5 tables (always a bad sign) and it took over 20 minutes for the waiter to take a drink order. In the interest of time we ordered everything at once as we had plenty of time to review the menu. Entrees came 10 minutes before the drinks. Food was edible at best. Staff never came around to check anything. Took an additional 20 minutes to get the check. Cute space but poor food and some of the worst service I have ever received.
I had made the reservation in advance for Father's Day and hoped to be seated in the rear garden area. I was with my children and was placed at a table that management said was normally for three people. It was very tiny and it was placed at the entrance to the garden where you would be bumped by waiters entering and leaving. I asked to be moved to a table inside and there was some reluctance by the manager. We were finally seated at another table and from that point on everything was excellent. The food came right away and it was served to perfection. I have eaten here in the past but it was a long time ago. I will think about returning in the future.
I have eaten here several times and have always liked it. The last time, however, the food was uneven. We were a group of seven people. They were nice to accommodate our request to sit in the garden area. Fried calamari was tough and overcooked. The mussel appetizer was awful with a bad taste. We left half of it as everyone tried a mussel or two and nobody went back for more. Some entrees were good - black linguine with seafood, penne with sausage, and another pasta with seafood dish. The last one had mussels in it and they were fine. Lasagna was not much of a mix of cheese, meat, pasta and sauce; it was mainly meat.
We won't give up on the restaurant. Hopefully it was just an off night.
We met another couple for Brunch. We had a nice time and the food was decent. I want to come during an evening when there is music. The ambiance was good. I found out later that you could pay $15 for unlimited drinks for 2 hours...the waiter should have said something when we ordered our 2nd, 3rd drink.
I usually have a great time I visit Pane e Vino. But this Sunday , the service was terrible! It the waiter at least twenty minutes to service our table. The party was only two adults including one child. All we needed bread, utensils, and water. We received that in half hour. The overall atmosphere and ambiance was great as always. But the service terrible. Maybe next time, they'll get it together. I'llI'll be back again soon!
