Extremely low lights...we were seated at the back of the restaurant...the lights were trained towards the wreaths on the wall...we had to use our phone lights to see the menu...also table was to small to accomodate drinks and appetizers

I've been a customer since 2002...its the only restaurant on Federal Hill that we dine at. The selection and quality is always top notch along with the service. The food is always fresh and authentic.

Pane e Vino is one of our favorite restaurants in Providence. The food is consistently delicious every time. Service is exceptional (our server Dante was very kind and attentive). Can’t beat the value of Monday nights with half off the entire wine list.

Pane e Vino always meets our expectations. The food was excellent and the service was top notch. In addition, it was Monday night which means 50% off all wines by the glass and or bottle!

My wife and I made our first reservation at Pane e Vino this past Saturday night, for our anniversary. We were seated on time and our wait staff was very friendly. In general, the experience was great and the "artistry" of the food was excellent. Everything we ordered was delicious. I plan to eat at this restaurant again.

However, I do have a few complaints. First, I ordered a beet and goat cheese salad. It was very good, but as I was eating it, I realized I hadn't noticed any goat cheese. There was a very small amount on the salad in very small pieces. They weren't really noticeable. This isn't what is usual for salads of this type. Next, for an entre, I ordered a veal chop with lemon and artichokes. Like the salad, it was very delicious. However, the chop itself was the smallest, saddest veal chop I've ever eaten. It reminded me of the thin cut pork chops you can buy in larger family packs at the supermarket. In other restaurants, I would have gotten a substantial slab of meat. Not in this establishment.

Also, as a side note, and not the restaurant's fault, but the road in front of Pane e Vino is closed to traffic. We were dropped off behind the restaurant and had a short walk to the entrance. Leaving was trickier since we had to walk to an open road to make it possible for the UBER driver to pick us up. None of this was bad, but it is better to be prepared. (You need to be able to put the right info into UBER.)

Waited an hour and a half for entrees before I said we would be leaving. We had already finished an entire bottle of wine waiting for the food. Another party next to us had been waiting a lot longer. Unacceptable, we paid 52 dollars to sit and drink wine and never got our food. Terrible!

I made a reservation for a Sunday dinner and notated the special occasion our daughter's birthday. Fist of all the service super slow, waitress Andrea no personality at all did not provide any suggestions just blah. Food was ok and the water boy had the best attitude and provided better service. Unfortunately we made a bad decision on choosing this restaurant for our celebration. Why ask on your website reason for visit when no one cares.

Very hard to rate this restaurant as we requested outside seating and it was a bit chilly. Don't think it is a fair evaluation and something is lost on the distance from the kitchen to the street no matter who is cooking.

My only disappointment was that they don't make their own pasta and they get it from somewhere in Boston. I think that any well know Italian restaurant should make their own pasta and there is a difference.

All in all they did a nice job.

One of my three favorite Italian restaurants in RI...i have never had a bad dinner here.
Having dinner outside on Atwells Ave during COVID-19 with heaters and blankets was a treat. Try it before it snows.

I’m sorry. I loved this place, but everything was off. Clams Casino are supposed to include a clam. These were dried out mini stuffed quahogs. No fresh clam flavor, no juice, no clam.

The special, described as pappardelle with truffle cream sauce with guanciale with peas and truffles sounded great. Greasy pasta with shaved truffles and no cream doesn’t work.

I can no longer recommend this place.

Unfortunately the food was all a little lacking. Calamari was bland, Veal Chop Parm was just ok, and Eggplant Parm was bitter since they don't peel the eggplant. Tiramisu was excellent however. Server seemed unsure of the wine list as we received the wrong glass of wine. Also, although plexiglass partitions were in place, there was no sanitizing of chairs, booths, etc in between parties. Found this to be a little unsettling.

The food and service were outstanding. We ate inside and we loved the atmosphere. They have spread out the tables just enough with a nice plexiglass partition between so we felt safe without feeling like we were eating in a bubble. We chose this restaurant because it had a 5 star rating on Open Table and it definitely lived up to that rating.

Due to Covid we sat outside, only comment was there was only one heater for a large section, heater was a good 20 -25 feet away from us, therefore no heat.
