Some portions were small
Overall the food was excellent
I would go back again soon
The food was excellent but I would not go here with kids. They made it pretty clear they did not want children here.....
Pane e Vino never disappoints. The atmosphere is cozy and comfortable. The staff is extremely courteous and attentive. The food is always expertly prepared and delicious, and there usually are wonderful specials on offer as well that never disappoint.
Pane Vino is always a dining pleasure. Great food and service. Top of the line wine list and always some excellent specials
Food, ambiance, and overall experience were fabulous. The hostess was super friendly and accommodating.My sister and I each had a Manhattan (which was mixed to perfection), the seasonal mushrooms with baked cheese appetizer, and the gnocchi quattro formaggi. Everything was absolutely delicious. My only complaint was the server - she was not friendly and did not thank us for dining, even after receiving a 25% tip.
Celebrating friends 50th anniversary
Everything was great ! Joe the owner came to my table and said hello. The staff sung happy birthday to my wife in Italian !
Excellent food and fabulous service! We will be back.
Best night! Best service!
This is a great restaurant, very professionally run. The service was excellent, we had Edward and he is probably one of the best service people I have seen in quite a while. His command of the menu, specials and beverages were exceptional. The food that is produced at this restaurant is very well made and professionally plated, presentations were excellent. I would highly recommend his establishment.
Pane e Vino has its own special flavor and its menu is a molto varied enterprise. Dropped down from a five star even though they prepared a white clam sauce with linguini for me. It is not a menu item, but one of my favorites. Unfortunately, the pasta was a bit under cooked and the sauce did not have a ringing satisfaction. Otherwise, my associates enjoyed their entrees and the service, led by Angelina, was superb. If you are going to Federal Hill in Providence, do not neglect partaking a meal here.
Great food. Excellent gluten free menu. And our server Zack was really nice and patient with two chatty women!
I would highly recommend Pane e Vino if you love real Italian ambiance, phenomenal Italian food, and impeccable service.
Wonderful meal and service once again at Pane e Vino!
This is my go to restaurant whenever I visit Providence.
Food and service was exceptional. Can't wait to return again. It will be soon
I am a tough critic. I am Italian. This makes me a very tough critic for Italian food. I have been to several places on Fed Hill and this place was, hands dow, the best. The space is small and a bit cramped but the bred and wine (not just a clever name) were great. The pasta was cooked to perfection and the veal was super tender and tasty. I am planning my trip back as we speak. There are still at least 15 items on the menu I have yet to try. Game on.
We were very disappointed with service and staff. We waited 20 mins before someone acknowledged us. Then when someone did acknowledge us we then waited another 10 mins. We were told they were busy and we had to wait. The bar is 2ft long. Both bartenders seen us standing there several times and never once made any type of gesture. Rude and unprofessional. Food was ok and waitstaff was ok.
PHENOMENAL!! Loved our dinner here again, and would highly recommend. Heather, the manager, and the chef, did a wonderful job accomodating some food allergies our group had, and everything was delicious. It was my daughter’s birthday and they had nice decorations on the table for her. Only comment would be that we ordered a cheeseboard and only got 2 slices of bread to have the cheese with, and the figs weren’t available, so nothing else was substituted for them. Fantastic evening, though, and we love the free valet parking!
Sublime veal parmigiana. In a state full of excellent Italian restaurants, this is the place
Our server Edward’s service, and knowledge of wines, was extraordinary. Warmly greeted by the front reception, and seated promptly and comfortably. Free valet parking a big plus in busy Federal Hill / Atwells Ave street. One of my absolute favorite venues to take business clients (as well as my wife) ... always exceptional!
Consistently good food, relaxing atmosphere and pleasant staff. I miss the Monday and Tuesday Prix Fix specials but my friends and I still often go to Pane e Vino because we like the food and it is consistently good. Our young waiter was attentive without hovering. the Martini was very generous and poured elegantly by the waiter. We each had a different entree and split the delicious bread pudding for dessert.
One of best meals I have had in quite awhile. We were greeted at the door, escorted to our table and waited on without any issues. Excellant staff, excellent service, along with great food and drinks. Highly recommend.
The service here was unbelievable. The waiters are so attentive. The food was solidly average. I would go back and try it again.
Overall, wonderful dining experience. My duck confit was a bit overcooked, but the dish was otherwise excellent. The octopus salad (special) was fantastic. My wife's pasta was very good, but considering the price, meh. Overall, I would say excellent but a bit pricey.
Run to Pane e Vino! It truly is the best authentic Tuscan Italian food on the hill. There is no doubt that the service is exquisite, the ambiance is comforting, and the food is not to be forgotten!
Our group has eaten here several times and the food and service has been great. Amanda was our server in the last visit and she’s outstanding. Meatballs are excellent. I had a halibut special that was very tasty and they accommodated my substitute. I’ve had the eggplant parm here and it’s really worth eating
We had a play to see after and we were looking for a nice place to begin our evening.
Excellent Food and Service with Gluten and dairy free options.
Excellent! Out of town guest loved it! Will go again.
We had a great experience at Pan e Vino. We had a reservation and were seated immediately upon entering the restaurant. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and friendly. We were celebrating a birthday and did not feel rushed at our visit. Food was delicious. I would definitely recommend Pane e Vino!
Very romantic Italian with great food and wine Service was attentive and it was filled with happy diners
Wonderful execution. Try the Escarole appetizer. One of the best on Federal Hill.
the atmosphere and food were wonderful. Our server was knowledgeable of the menu and very attentive. We will definitely be returning for another delicious meal.
The restaurant needs to be updated and remodeled. The ladies room really needs to be cleaned. My dinner, Ravi Neapolitano pasta was very bad, the sauce was very acidic probably on the burner for way too long & the Italian sausage was so tough you couldn’t eat it. My husband had the halibut and he said it was as not fresh! We will not go back until the cleanup their act!! 👎👎
It's hard to believe that my husband and I have been enjoying Pane e Vino since it opened in 2000. And it just keeps getting better and better in every way. The food is always perfect and the the service and ambiance exceed expectations each time we dine there. The kindness and concern for their patrons is heartwarming and so admirable.
Nice job as usual
Outstanding as always. The best Caesar salad anywhere. Thank you for a terrific meal.
We had a large party and our server was great.
Our second visit, it was as good as the first. Patty was an excellent server!
The waiter was friendly, helpful and courteous. The food was delicious. They were some very loud parties sitting near us who were using profanity and that made our first visit there less enjoyable than it could have been.
