It was a Friday night and it was busy. I had the eggplant. It wasn’t great. No. It wasn’t something I could eat. I left most of it. The bar tender gave me the wrong drink which the waiter didn’t notice to take off the bill. Beyond mediocre food, the waiter brought the check with desert. I felt rushed. It had been there 1.25 hrs so I guess I hit my time limit. I don’t like taking my woman out for what I expect to be a great night, to feel pushed out. I need to find a new favorite restaurant in providence. That shouldn’t be a problem with lots of great options.
This is the best Italian restaurant this side of Italy. We started with the meatball and arancini appetizers - they were both outstanding- however, the arancini was the best I’ve ever had.
For the second course we split a excellent roasted beet salad and my husband ordered a mashed potato ball, I don’t remember the name-however, it was amazing!
Our son had the FUSILLI AL RAGU NAPOLITANO - he loved it. My husband had the Fettuccine bolognese- which was also delicious, our daughter in law loved her gnocchi- however I thought my rigatoni pasta was the absolute best!
We are only staying in Providence for one week, however, we have already made reservations to come back here again before we go home. I wish I could remember our servers name-he was amazing. You will not be disappointed if you are blessed enough to have dinner at this fabulous restaurant.
Went with a friend on a Sunday evening and tried selections from the prix-fixe menu which is available certain days/hours. Service was outstanding, our waiter was very professional yet friendly. Arancini appetizer was delicious as were our meals (eggplant parmigiana & pasta napolitano). Dessert & coffee were very good also. The restaurant was pretty quiet when we went and I don’t know how busy it is at other times, but we enjoyed a really lovely meal with fantastic service. Highly recommend and will definitely be back!
Went with my family for my 60th birthday. Service was impeccable, food was served beautifully with the freshest ingredients. I highly recommend this if you are looking for authentic Italian food.
It was ok. Nothing remarkable. I thought that they took what could have been a good dish and packed it with unnecessary stuff. Maybe I ordered wrong. The food at other tables looked great.
Went here with friends from out of town. Everything was delicious. The smoked mozzarella and tomatoes were everything you dream off when you think summer’s bounty. Pork chop particularly good.
This is perhaps the finest Italian Resturant we have had the pleasure to dine in. The veal chop was perfectly prepared and simply melted in your mouth. The lobster Fra Diablo accompanied by squid ink linguine was unbelievable. The gnocchi fomaggio was delightful. The bread pudding with golden raisins topped with pistachio gelato was devine. Service was impeccable.
I would recommend Pane e Vino for everyday dining as well as celebrating any special occasion. Food, service, and ambiance are always superb.
We had a party of 16, which is always a challenge, and a Birthday. They were able to easily accommodate us and make our Birthday Person feel very special with table decorations and singing. They even let us drop off a cake earlier in the day. Just a great evening with friends and really great food!
Food excellent. Service excellent. We had a large party and it was great.
Great food and great staff
It was our second visit and sometimes that can be disappointing. However, it was terrific in every way.
Love that place. Thank you for the excellent service and outstanding meal.
I have been coming to this resturant for years and each time it only gets better! Our server was Heather and she was outstanding.....very knowledgeable to say the least, and very attentive to us.
I brought a business colleague here with no previous recommendations. Open table is great that way... pick a place and you will not be disappointed. This was no exception! We had a great meal and my colleague said “I’m coming back here the next time I’m in Providence!” The staff was great and the host (did not get his name) checked on us just enough to make it feel like we were having a special meal just for us. Well done! And thank you again open table!
Delicious food, we especially enjoyed the antipasti della casa and the bread pudding was great.
So beautiful. Made our first date incredibly special.
Great food, wonderful service. Fabulous Chianti 🍷
Went with friends and had a great time. Meal and service was excellent. Tried a unique martini and loved it. Had a fruiti de mar entree and really enjoyed it, however I tried a bite of my friends veal chop parmigiana which was excellent and will try next time. Shared salads was split nicely and well done. We shall return.
Outstanding!!!! Food, service, ambiance...you name it. This is a local treasure if you enjoy traditional Italian. Make your reservations today!!!
We had a stellar waiter who was extremely knowledgeable about the wines and the preparation of the entrees. He recommended a lovely Soave which went perfectly with the Caesar salad and the tortellini special with gorgonzola and mushrooms. The back room has a warm atmosphere that was perfect for conversation and relaxation. The golden raisin bread pudding was exceptional, especially topped by a pistachio gelato imported from Sicily (recommended by our waiter).
Great food. Great service.
Edward the waiter TOP NOTCH! You must ask for him
Outstanding! Ordered a stuffed veal chop and it was one of the best meals I've ever had in a restaurant. My wife had the catch of the day served over couscous and tomato and it was good as well Our waiter was excellent and the restaurant was quiet enough for my wife and I to have a pleasant conversation. We went to a different Italian restaurant last night and even though it was good, we still talked about how good our meal at Pane e Vino was.
food was served cold. wait staff not over friendly
Food was fantastic, quality service with the waitress explaining everything in detail with whatever we ordered.
Only gripe was little privacy and very noisy when place was packed but both are manageable!
We actually reserved a table but bartender was so wonderful, attentive, and knowledgeable so we ate at the bar. She recommended wonderful some wonderful choices and everything was superb! We can't wait to return.
It was our first time dining at this restaurant and our experience was wonderful. We arrived and was seated right away, our server was attentive and did a terrific job sharing information about the menu and specials for the evening. Most, importantly the food was delicious with a beautiful presentation. We were with another couple and each dish was excellent. The prices are reasonable for the fine quality of the food. On a side note they also offer valet parking. We will definitely be returning when we are back in the area!
We love this restaurant. The food is consistently great, the atmosphere almost always warm and welcoming. The staff has been very accommodating. Once for one of our special occasions, we decided to go for an impromtu night out to celebrate and they had set up a table to accommodate our visit without a hassle, which was very appreciated. I would recommend to anyone who wants to enjoy a night of delicious food and great wine options too accompany. Monday night half off wines are an additional excuse to go and try new wines!
As usual, a very good experience. Food, staff and 1/2 price wine were top notch. Our favorite restaurant in RI!
FURIOUS!! Never experienced such disappointing service!! We sat there, in poor seating despite almost 24 hr. reservation notice. We were ignored at best. We left but not before consuming stale bread !!!
Had a wonderful dinner at Capital Grille, fit us in last minute and still provided us with great service and great food. Would not recommend Pane e Vino to anyone...OBNOXIOUS!!
HIGHLY recommend Capital Grille!!!
Food was amazing! Loved our server, Eduardo.
Outstanding dining event. The food was excellent and the service is outstanding. A special mention to the valet parking attendant. He made an effort to insure the evening was a complete success. Thanks
Food is exceptional.
Highly recommend the experience.
Ever since my husband went gluten free due to medical issues I've missed good authentic Italian food. Not anymore. My husband got to have gf bread to start that was warm and fresh, gf calamari which was so good no dipping sauce needed, and an amazing gf pasta dish that I snuck bites out of and honestly tasted just as good as my non gf meal! They even have gf dessert options but we were too full to partake. Our server Jason was knowledgeable and great with wine and entree recommendations. We traveled an hour from Dedham to try this place and we'll definitely be back.
My husband and I were staying in Providence for one night. It was our first time in Providence. I picked this place for dinner and it was a great choice. The staff was friendly and the food was excellent. If we ever find ourselves in Providence again, we would definitely eat here again. Ciao
I brought my other for her birthday which I noted on my reservation. I was surprised to see confetti & a sweet birthday sign waiting for us at the table upon arrival. What a special touch! Waitress was very friendly & helpful. Food and drinks were delicious & not overly expensive. Overall, a lovely night out in federal hill!
Outstanding service, food and ambiance!!!! A great authentic italian resturant.
Excellent- the prix fix menu is phenomenal. Service outstanding
My girlfriend and I went here on a date recently and we had an amazing time! From the warm greet I received from Chris, the manager there, to the food. Completely OUTSTANDING. The restaurant was quiet, but not silent. Not too much noise but not dead silent where you were afraid to speak to loud. The waitress we had was outstanding. Very familiar with the menu in and out as well as the cocktails, which were outstanding. Decent sized wine list. Parking can be a little tough depending on day of the week and time. There is ample street parking if you're lucky. Tons of lots and valet parking though around CASH ONLY** definitely will be coming back. The area was very nice! Plenty of bars around.
We love Pane e Vino. The food is always fabulous. We often share/split a pasta course and the always split it for us rather than us eating across the table. We usually ask for a wine pairing recommendation for our main course and have never been disappointed with the suggestion.
