There is a lot of pretense at Panevino. They (the very large chef) think they are the only upscale restaurant in Reading. They are one of the few but not the best - by far. Long wait times after being seated, OK atmosphere , Staff who seem to not care and Very high prices that make me few like I... More

We decided on Panevino Restaurant in Reading, PA 19601... for our New Year Eve meal / celebrations. The Restaurant had been highly recommended to them. Sadly... More

Excellent anniversary celebration meal. We celebrated six decades of marriage at PANEVINO. Always a pleasure to have free covered parking a half block from the restaurant. We were seated in the well lit, quiet bar dining area and on request were seared at a more spacious table. Or server was prompt and readily to our request for a slow paced... More

We had an early dinner prior to a show. I had the three-course meal. The salad and entree (eggplant parmesean) were good; the dessert (chocolate torte) was excellent. My boyfriend had the seafood risotto. He liked it but it seemed fishy to me. Overall, I thought it was good and would be willing to give it another try.

Directly across the street from the IMAX (that shows periodic Metropolitan Opera live telecasts) sits "Pan e Vino" (bread and wine) waiting to top off an opera afternoon with a fine dinner. I'm not a big fan of pasta, and this restaurant offers a lot of northern Italian dishes, all perfectly made and presented. Décor is modern and white tablecloths... More

My family and I had a nice time at the Reading Museum when my kids were learning about Ancient Egypt. It's not enough for a full day but fun and educational none the less.

Convenient to get to and parking in garage nearby. Reservations easy to acquire. Service was attentive and the menu traditional. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Price was reasonable. Nice option in Reading on a Sunday night.

I received a gift certificate for our first visit and it was good quality food and service. It was a pretty quiet Friday night and there seemed to be a lack of energy in the restaurant.
