Horribly rude and unprofessional hostess - never even sat down. Literally chases people out of the establishment because she was tired and probably wanted to go home. She should be fired immediately for the way she acted.

The hostess was fabulous and interjected into our family fun as we sat just by her hosting desk. She made our night!

Great food! Great wait staff and a desert surprise at the end. No surprise it's been our favorite restaurant for over 10 years.

So I have to be honest, our waiter GIUSEPPE was outstanding. He was very attentive to our needs, very friendly and never rushed us at all. His recommendations were spot on for what we ordered. The food was fantastic and the atmosphere was great. I would highly recommend Osteria Panevino and Giuesppe
to everyone.
Great value for the time we had.
PS- TRY THE LIMONCE LIMONCELLO .

This is an Italian food gem outside of Little Italy. it is small and usually crowded, but that says something for how good it is. The servers are Italian for the most part and that adds to the genuine ambience. The regular menu is overshadowed only by the specials, making your dinner choice that much more difficult. We have been there twice - the meat, chicken, and seafood selections are all amazing. My wife and I had salads (real whole anchovies on my Cesar). This night, I had the special which was the seafood pasta which included lobster, mussels, calamari, clams, and salmon in a spicy marinara, on top of all dente pasta. The plate was enormous and easily could have been split between 2 persons. My wife had the herbed roasted chicken on a bed of pasta and spinach (they were kind enough to trade out the listed mashed potatoes for pasta in garlic, herb and oil. Dessert was a shared dish of vanilla gelato. I'd go back again when we visit San Diego.

Great food and service and our waitperson was exceptional. We did appetizers, split a salad and then the main courses. Options for wine parings were good . We passed on dessert as we were just too full.

Some of the best Italian food I've ever had! We had the porcini mushroom risotto and the osso bucco gnocchi. Off the charts good! And great service too. Highly recommend.
