“A pleasant surprise in Lindsay!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

We used to tease our Lindsay friends about their restaurant choices -- apparently there are 5 Tim Horton's in this small Kawartha town. But now they can fight back by reminding us of the lovely evening we just had at Pane Vino. The ambiance here is really nice, it's bistro style with red painted walls and big art. The owner seems very involved - he personally visited our table several times on the Saturday night we were there, recommended wine, and wanted to know how everything was. A real highlight was the meatball appetizer, with fresh herbs and fennel - delish! The pasta mains were all very tasty and nicely presented, our highlight here was the spiced lamb sauce in the dinner special. Dessert of note was a yummy sticky toffee pudding - it was not exactly right according to Scottish tradition, but very tasty! This little place would do just fine in the big city, and hopefully it will thrive in Lindsay because I would really like to go back again during our next visit!

“A nice meal.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Pumpkin soup to start - just heavenly. We didn't see many main course options that really tempted us. My husband had a steak which he enjoyed. I had the risotto which was quite good. There was no worthwhile chocolate dish on the dessert menu.
As I listened to other people ordering, it seemed that they "had just run out of" many options on the menu.
We made a reservation two weeks in advance yet ended up right in the drafty doorway. Our table was so close to the one behind us I couldn't move without disturbing the man behind me. Other people came with no reservations and did wait a little, but ended up at a much better table than ours.
I'm glad we tried Pane Vino, but being from Peterborough, I think we have many much better options closer to home.

“Fabulous find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

We have just discovered a fabulous little Italian restaurant in Lindsay. Upon walking into the restaurant, we were greeted by a welcoming staff to a lovely spot with beautiful decor. Four of us were seated inthe bar area due to a large group in the dining room. A sliding barn door ensured a pleasant atmosphere for those of us in the bar area. Our group of four enjoyed some of the best food tasted in a restaurant in a long while. Our appetizers were terrific. For the main course, two of us had the steak special and one had the osso buco and the fourth person had the spaghetti. All of our meals were delicious. The desserts were scrumptious. The service was attentive and very pleasant. We will definitely be recommending Pane Vino and we will be returning, even though it is an hour drive away from home.
