Upon first arriving in Sabana Norte we were famished and looked for something fast and close. We saw Pane e Vino from across the street and decided to dine there. Pros: -Excellent service and friendly staff from beginning to end -Tasty bruschetta with fresh tomatoes and basil -Delicious dessert with pizza dough, Nutella, berry sauce, and vanilla ice cream -Complementary...

We dined in the afternoon between lunch and dinner when it was empty so I suspect our service was better than usual. Nonetheless, our server was attentive yet not pushy or annoying. We each ordered gnocchi (our favorite) with different sauces and were very pleased. Our plates returned clean. But what stood out was dessert: Sdrufolo de Nutella. This house... More

There are several Pane e Vino and we tried 3 of them. The one located across the street from Hilton Garden Inn San Jose Sabana was the best. Great service, nice people, very accommodating. Pizza is different from NY pizza but great tasting and we tried about 3 different offerings. Pasta and other dishes are great too. However, do not... More

We were doing business in the neighborhood. It was late in the afternoon and we were hungry. I saw the cheery windows with the stylish interior so we decided to go in. The meal was a pleasure from beginning to end. I definitely recommend the house vino into. It is rich and delicious with a very generous pour in lovely... More

We were looking for comida tipica, but this was the only thing around that appealed to us at the moment. We passed another table having what appeared to be delicious pizza. but didn't want too much food. We ordered fried calamari (chewy without flavor) and fried croquettes from the appetizer menu and one beer and thought for what we ordered,... More

Two of us went and had a special sandwich, with a couple of sides. Can't remember the Spanish name for the sandwich but we both liked them. The sides came with the special and were also good. This was a fast food type of meal for us but didn't have to be. We were not rushed and this was a... More

I had the pleasure to enjoy a late lunch with my husband in this restaurant. We were on the last days of our vacation, back in the city looking for a place to eat that offered fine cuisine and by chance found this place. I must say that at first impression, seemed to me like any other restaurant. But was... More

I stopped through here for dinner while visiting on business, and I wasn't all that impressed. The ravioli seemed to come from a microwave and was pretty chewy. I did enjoy a nice glass of wine, and the server was excellent, but the food was underwhelming.

We stopped here for dinner on a recent business trip. It is very convenient to the Hilton Garden Inn. Service was outstanding! Pasta was very good. I had a sampler of spaghetti, gnocchi, etc. Food was well prepared. The restaurant is in a small shopping center and is well decorated, but not particularly cozy with bright lighting and a small...
