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.

The food was delicious and our server, Jasmine, was wonderful.

It is very loud, probably because of all of the tile. We asked to be moved from our original table because it was so noisy that we were shouting at each other to be heard.

Once we were moved to another section with less people it was fine

I was at your restaurant for dinner last Thursday evening cause family came to visit from out of town. I had heard only good things about your restaurant so wanted to try it. Well, I did and won’t be back.
One person in our party had the veal special . What a disappointment two little pieces of veal and some mashed potatoes . No vegetables on the plate , it looked like it was just thrown together . For the price it was a disgrace.

Love the warm pasta salad with chicken and my friend's salmon was well prepared with seasonal veggies. The best orange/iced tea too. Service was good---a little short staffed but we enjoyed chatting and taking our time. Always enjoy dining here when in the area.

I've been going to Panevino my whole life, so it's about time to leave a review! There is nothing negative I can say about the restaurant. The food is always superb, the ambiance is wonderful, and the staff is great. I've visited on a random evening as well as made reservations for New Year's and birthdays, and the quality and service is always the same - spectacular. Whether you're stopping in for a quick salad or celebrating a life event with several courses, Panevino is a complete joy. The restaurant itself is beautiful inside and out, and it is the kind of place where you totally forget you're on a highway in Livingston. Go!
