We made a reservation, yet the host attempted to seat us — the only Black family in the restaurant — directly across from the wait station, even though there were lovely tables in other parts of the restaurant. I declined to be seated across from the wait station. We remained the only Black family in the restaurant and I noted as we were leaving that no one was seated across from the wait station for the entire time we were there. Racism is alive and well and living at Pane e Vino!

Amazing experience from start to finish, incredible front of house staff backed up by a talented kitchen. Everything we ordered was cooked perfectly, the meatballs are divine, the special crab ravioli was to die for.
Special mention to Austin the GM who is outstanding and was professional whilst still being personal.

Pane e Vino has always been one of our favorite restaurants in Providence. The managers and the staff always treat people like family. I have a gluten allergy, and they provide one of the largest gluten free menus to choose from. Half priced wine for both glasses, and bottles on Mondays is another plus. Pane e Vino is a Rhode Island GEM

We had a great dinner outside in the back patio with no one else around. Our server Kaitlyn was fantastic- super kind, informative and patient! We had the duck confit which was delicious. We also had the half lobster ravioli and half order of gnocchi and both were great as well! Can’t wait to go back!

A local recommended Pan e Vino and we are so happy we reserved. Even for a busy Saturday evening in the summer the food and service remained superb. Chicken Parmigiana cooked to perfection. Try the lemon gelato for dessert.
Note that traffic is blocked off on Atwells for pediestian traffic on the weekend for dinner. If you are driving, congestion in the area is quite challenging. Walk a few blocks away from Atwells to hail Lyft and Uber.

I loved the atmosphere, the food, the service. It was wonderful. I'm vegan and the changed and recommended dishes to accommodate me. My Italian boyfriend said it was just like his Mother's and Grandmother's cooking. Brianna our waitress was wonderful, Austen the general manager came out and talked to us to make sure we liked our meal. My pasta came out hot, which I love and so appreciate. It couldn't have been better. The only warning I have is that the streets on Federal Hill were blocked out that night, so parking was a hassle. They should forewarn people when Federal Hill is going to be blocked off to traffic when they make reservations.

Outstanding food and exceptional service was provided by Virginia. The pulpo to start was fantastic as were all the entrees. We ate family style and shared with everyone. Pane e Vino provides a true authentic Italian experience at reasonable prices. We took advantage of their Monday wine experience. Highly recommend. We will be back.

We had a wonderful server (Brianna) and sitting on the back patio was very nice. The zucchini flowers appetizer was tasty and the salads were very good. Two of us had the duck which was exceptional, one had the eggplant parm, also very good, and one had the Chilean sea bass special that was, unfortunately not so good. My wife said it was the worst she’d ever had. There were quite a few bones and it was very dry. Desserts, (bread pudding and molten lava cake) were excellent.

Outstanding service. We ate outside on a beautiful night. The young water boy was very accommodating and moved the umbrella so the sun would not be in my husband's eyes. He also served the bread and water and checked on us often. Our waitress, Brianna, was very personable and knowledgeable of the menu and had some great suggestions. We loved the lobster ravioli, the pork, the seafood bowl, the rice balls and the stuffed squash blossoms. We also recommend the chocolate lava cake, tiramisu and the bread pudding with the salted caramel ice cream - Brianna suggested the combo, the ice cream was fabulous. Overall and awesome evening.

We sat outside for an early dinner. The staff was courteous and accommodating. The food was excellent from the salad to the main course. Our waitress Brianna was a breath of fresh air. Haven’t had that kind of device in a very long time. She was very sweet and attentive. I hope the owners recognize her and realize what an asset she is.

I love this restaurant. The food is incredible. I was hosting a friend from out of town and was excited to introduce them to the restaurant. Our waiter was attentive and kind. However, the waitstaff was very stressed which fed into the overall atmosphere of the evening. Sadly, as guests dining, we could all sense the tension. The pandemic has left many establishments without the help they need, so I am sensitive to this fact. I don’t know if the issue was understaffing or just a very busy Friday night (or both), or something else. I will definitely be back, but the dinner was definitely far from the regular standard, as one of our appetizers was forgotten about and food was cold when it arrived to the table.

Been here several times and had great food. So disappointed. This visit was an occasion. We started with our usual calamari which was greasy. Okay, not a big deal. But then we waited over an hour for dinner. I specifically told the waiter to make sure the food is hot as I was skeptical that we waited so long. Well, two meal came out cold. We get the waiter, he gets the manager. Back to the kitchen they go to be heated. My meal came out warm, not hot. I was starving and ate it. But my son's meal was ice cold. I told the waiter. Manager comes over, nice apologetic, offering dessert. Well, we had a cake waiting for us so we declined. A smile and an apology. No offer to reimburse for the meals, at least my son's. C'mon, where's the customer service. We ended up throwing out the Veal Parm.

Altho we've been hearing of this place for a long time, this was our first visit, and WOW were we surprised.
We arrived at 5:00pm on a Saturday evening and it was about what you'd expect at that hour. Patrons slowly arriving.
We were sitted in the back end of the unexpectedly long narrow restaurant. Ambience was fine, very Italian. A few other tables at that time.
The meal was delicious from the bread on thru the braised escarole with cannellini beans and guanciale. A very simple dish but executed perfectly with subtle flavors that married wonderfully. Very much reminded us of the simple but delicious dishes one finds in Italy.
My wife had the linguini con vongole which was very very good. Pasta perfectly al dente and the littlenecks very fresh. Seasoning on the money.
I had the veal chop which I am ready to go back for another one today. I've had my share of veal chops over the years and this one was right up there. Rib chop and not a loin chop. when asked how Id like it done, I said "chef's choice.' I have found that this is the best way to order veal. Came out medium rare to medium which was fine. Probably closer to medium. Very juicy and drizzled with a balsamic(?) reduction. First bite and I knew I had hit the jackpot. Nicely grilled. Came with some asparagus and a couple of potato/cheese cakes that were fine. The chop was the star.
For dessert we split a chocolate flourless cake served warm with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream. I also had the affogato which was very good.
At the end of the meal, our server brought out a couple of homemade limoncellos which was a nice touch.
Very friendly ambience and waitstaff. Attentive and polite but not at all intrusive. Well trained.
Cannot say enough about this place and am sorry we never tried it sooner. Better late than never, I suppose.
