Delicious as always!

Hubby & I wanted a good meal near the end of a hectic week so we returned to Panavino after a long absence. We had wonderful service & our food was exceptional. The lemoncello & salted caramel martinis were great; so nice to receive the shaker! Makes it more like two drinks. Hubby had lobster... read more

We waited quite a while for our server who finally came with the wine menu. There were 4 people in our party so we ordered two bottles of wine (a nice white and a nice red). He came back and said they didn't have either of those ("just sold the last bottles"). So we ordered two different bottles (a white... More

We stopped by with family for dinner. Most of the food was mediocre at best. But what really set us off was my husbands Tuna steak. It was grey, dry and totally flavorless. He took one bite and couldn't have another. When he complained to the waiter he simply said he would tell the chef. No offering of another entree... 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.

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
