Panevino is has been our "go to" place for great food, great service and cozy atmosphere for many years! We have come to think of this place and the people that work there as family. Christina and Lourdes are wonderful to deal with and have taken very good care of my family and friends. The Veal Meatballs, Rice Balls and Salmon are a "must try" when you visit here, Oh and don't forget their Cannoli, they're out of this world good!

Amy was delightful and attentive waitress.
Pizza was too cheesy— not tasty, just stretchy white goo - marguerita with mushrooms. Salad was fine.

We were very disappointed with the food portions. We split a shrimp appetizer that only had two shrimps, one for each. We really like the atmosphere, but probably won’t be returning as pricing is high compared to portion size.

I hadn’t been to Panevino in years but remembered good food and a really nice place to meet up with friends. It is still wonderful. There was a Birthday party of about 20 young girls next to us which made it extremely difficult to carry on a conversation. They needed a private room, it wasn’t fair to everyone around them.

We enjoyed a light dinner of pizza and salad. Wait staff was very attentive and helpful. Options for bottles of wine were limited and slightly expensive. Overall it was very noisy, we chose to sit on indoor patio as it was a little quieter but as that filled in noise level was distracting. Nice menu overall. We'd go back for sure.

Panevino is an excellent neighborhood restaurant and it gotten better over the years. There are certain craveable menu items, such as the meatballs, warm penne salad and the paccheri, that you will not find anyplace else. The wine list could use a reboot.

Heard about this place for years, used to work at the hotel across the street and sent tons of guests there. Was excited to finally get chance to try it myself. I can only feel this place has been around so long because of its location. Both my wife and I pasta was not good, tough and lacked flavor. The chicken park was odd. It had a bone. Who uses bone in chicken for chicken parm?? Nice staff and fast service, but first and last time.

I have eaten here numerous times in the past by far this was my worst experience in a restaurant in a long time. To start had s reservation for 7:15 didn’t get seated till 7:35 was told people were not leaving then told Open Table had a glitch and over booked. Sat down waited for 20minutes busboy gave bread no water still no waiter for drink order. Finally waiter for drinks still no specials. Another waiter came by and said I don’t know where your waiter is he went to get our drinks. First waiter never put them in. Finally I was told they ran out of Stella and I picked another beer. Drinks came 35 minutes not bad waiter asked to take our food order had to ask for specials While waiting for food I asked for another beer not to bad this time it came when I was almost done with my dinner. Upon dropping off check the waiter informed me he took a dollar off the bill because the Stella was more then Budweiser he was proud he did the right thing. Against my will I left the expected tip amount it pained me. The food was decent but the staff sucks and is clueless. Never again

We were seated for our reservation appointed time promptly and given a choice of tables. Christina, the general manager, always makes us feel like welcomed family here. Our lunch, Caesar salad and a panini sandwich was perfect and well served by Robert. Just an excellent experience, as usual, at Panevino!!!

I've been to this restaurant many times and it is usually very good. Unfortunately not this visit. The service was terrible and the waiter kept telling us they were short handed. The food was awful, had the lobster ravioli and it was so overdone and dry. Even the salad was not up to par. The coffee was even cold. Not what I usually expect from this place. Will most likely return at some point in the future but not for a while.

I am not surprised that it was so busy on Valentine's Day. We were asked if we wanted a drink and didn't indicate our choice of red. Needless to say, the most expensive glass was given. Our menus were taken away prior to our ordering. I felt rushed only to get the next party at our table. I would recommend this restaurant but not on a special day like Valentine's Day.

-have been here a couple times before. It’s mostly been good, but tonight was not very good
-burrata cheese was not the consistency it should be. It’s supposed to have a melty consistency, and be room temp, but this was just cold mozzarella
-the burrata plate had tomatoes, but they had the stickers still on the skin of the tomatoes
-the waiter brought us our beverages right away but not water, and we had a thirsty two year old. We waited over 15 minutes for water and didn’t see the water once this whole time
-service generally was really slow. It took over an hour and a half from beginning to end. If the food takes a little while that’s okay, but I was hoping our waiter would at least check in with us and ask us if we needed anything
-when we told the waiter about this he told the hostess, who assured us it would be taken off the bill. It wasn’t so we had to ask for it again
-based on this experience, I won’t go back anytime soon. Recommend Anthony Marra’s or Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza instead, both also in Livingston nearby

First time there and disappointed that whoever was taking care of the bar area couldn’t make a decent Cosmopolitan. Asked for stoli and the waiter didn’t even know what stoli was. Brought out a Cosmo that didn’t even look like a Cosmo. Wasn’t even in a martini glass. Tasted awful. They took it back and I got wine.
Second, I ordered lasagna. It came out dry. Like it was warmed up too long. I had better at Olive Garden and keep in mind. I don’t like the Olive Garden.
Panevino is too overpriced for the portions it serves. I don’t see myself going back to this restaurant.

Menu is very limited for vegan customers. Restaurant hasn't changed much in 40 years and still offers many of the same overpriced items that it has in those 40 years. Restaurant management hasn't realized it's time for an update to a menu that caters to more people. Quite disturbing to see the same items over and over. Needs major updating. Ravioli for $19.95? Eggplant for $19.95?? NYC prices in a NJ setting.

Great menu. Service was slow, but it was New Year's Day, so they may have been short some workers. Staff was very nice and helpful, it just took a long time for the food to come out. Food was very good. Authentic and simple. Soda is $3.50 a glass but with free refills. Fun atmosphere. We will go back for sure.

Met as a party of 8 and the food was FABULOUS. A little noisy as there were other large parties seated around us. But the restaurant itself was beautiful and festively decorated. Will definitely be back.
