Pleased with first experience

Dined here for first time last night. We stopped in for a quick meal before a movie. It was ok, waiter was very helpful with the beer and wine list. We opted for the $50 special for the movie tickets. Service was okay as was the food. Portions were large as well, we ordered a $5 side of sweet... read more

I have absolutely no complaints. The food was excellent, and there was more than a normal person should eat. The service was excellent and very timely. The atmosphere was warm and inviting. Great place to go in downtown Reading

Right across from the Reading IMAX theater, Panevino offers an excellent option for combining dinner and a show. Safe indoor parking right next store plus excellent food and service make this part of a great night out.

They ran out of bread. The sauce was watery - it could have passed for tomato soup. The sauce was bland. When we complained the response was use salt. There were only another couple in the restaurant and the staff were acting like they wanted to close up.

My wife and I love going to Panevino. Dave is a fine chef. The food is always terrific! The 19.95 menu is very good. This week I had the hanger steak. I had it in the past and it was terrific. The same this time. We had an excellent server. His name is Ivano. He is the best server we... More

This restaurant is know for a rustic regional Italian cuisine, from homemade pasta to grilled Tuscan pizza and sautéed Dover Sole filleted tableside. However we attempted to order 2 different pastas, one particular carne and also 3 different types of wine and they were OUT OF THE MENU ITEMS. WOW how can you open a restaurant on a Thursday evening... More

After having two previous experiences that were less than satisfactory, my wife and I decided to give Panevino in Reading, PA one last chance to redeem themselves and so I took her there for Mother's day. Needless to say, this third strike has counted them out for us as a dining choice. I'll begin by saying that I made my... More

Panvino's has a special $19.95 menu with soup, salad, entre, and dessert... We gave it a try. I started with a spicy crab and clam chowder -- very good, but not thin as one expects of chowder... Tasted good though. I had Pollo Ciambotta, chicken with sausage, peppers, with fingerling potatoes... Very, very nice. Regina had a pork loin dish... More

We typically go to Panevino's for dinner before a concert at Santander Performing Arts Center. The staff has always been very accommodating to our schedule. We have 5:30 reservations for a 7:30 concert. Last night the service was slow and incorrect. We weren't the only people impacted. We listened/watched as another couple complained and left before their food arrived because... More
