    Awful service and food was served cold. Server gave us the wrong bill and chased us outdoors. We had to go back inside, credit our visa card and pay a different amount. Would not recommend!

    Wrong meal delivered. Correct meal arrived pretty quickly. Chicken Toscano was awful. White meat very dry. Mashed potatoes watery. Menu not same as posted on Open Table. Restaurant very busy so service was a bit slow. Noise level so loud we could not have a conversation. I was very disappointed.

    We celebrated a wedding anniversary here, the night of a huge Petco concert. They seated us at our requested table and though the place was crazy busy, managed to take our order with a smile and get our food to us quickly. The very fresh pasta was piping hot and wonderful! The salmon salad came w a Huge piece of tasty fish. Our friends secretly reminded the stressed waiter it was our anniversary and he greciously took time to surprise us with a delicious piece of tiramlsu - and a lit candle! Osteria Panevino provided an amazing start to very special date - but we'll be back again (on a quieter night!).

    Our diining experience began with a waiter that refused to focus on us. After several unsucessful attempts to get his attention we notified the manager of the problem, and he did an excellent job of turning a very negative start into a positive dining experience. The manager waited on us personally, discussed the menu entrees and the specials in detail, and made recommendations that worked very well for us. Thanks to the manager's actions and his very professional service we will be happy to return.

    We had the the cacio y pepe gnocci and the mushroom risotto. Both were very good although a bit too salty. There was a good selection of wines, including for wines by the glass. We didn't have dessert as the choices were not tempting. The service was attentive but got distracted when some larger parties came to the restaurant. The ambiance was nice, relaxed, great for larger gathering, but not a quiet dinner for two. Nevertheless, it was a nice experience.

    A group of 5 of us had a wide variety of dishes, the best being the charcuterie plate. Others included a seafood pasta special, Osso Buco, chicken parmigiana, Pollo Toscana. Appetizers we had included bruschetta, beef carpaccio. Wine and drinks were decent. The service was good - no issues whatsoever! The food was just really mediocre- salads were not fresh, chicken was bland and overcooked.
