Dirty,Bad food,Terrible service.NO atmosphere.We went to see a movie and went to this restaurant because it was right next to movie theatre.BIG MISTAKE.Wont go back again.Health dept.Check this place out.
We eat regularly at Pane e Vino and have always had excellent service and the food is wonderful! However, it is a small family owned business and customers are treated as family. We are always treated with respect and warmth and the owner and his staff always make an effort to accomodate the customers. But perhaps the reason for the comments previously listed is that they arrived 10 minutes before closing time on a Sunday evening. It is unreasonable to expect a small restaurant to remain open past its closing time to accomodate two customers who were oblivious to the restaurant's hours of operation. It is not a chain restaurant.
We went here for the first time in a few years at about 8:50pm on a Sunday night. We were not greeted when we walked in, even though the busser was standing right in the middle of the restaurant, looking at us and then turning away. We stood there for about 3 minutes before finally someone, looked like the owner, came around and sat us. He then said a server would be with us. Three minutes later, he came back and said we couldn't eat in the restaurant, but we could get takeout. He said that the kitchen didn't want to wash our dishes. We then ordered take out, as we wanted a bite to eat before we went to a movie. We asked if we could eat out on the sidewalk table, and basically our question was ignored. The mussels my date had were the worst I've ever had and the pizza that I ordered was only adequate, though the mozzarella was excellent on top. I manage a restaurant and am ashamed to be in the same industry as Pane E. Vino. We will NEVER go back and that is unfortunate for the restaurant because a smart owner/manager would realize the lifetime value of a guest is a significant amount of money. I would definitely suggest just going to an Italian chain like Carabba's because the staff actually pretends like they care. 4 thumbs down
We have been dining at Pane E Vino for the last 4-5 yrs. We love it! The food is really authentic Italian. The service is great! The owner really cares about his customers. The buffet on Sunday is just wonderful and includes many desserts. When we are having a bad day we go there and we feel great again. When we want to celebrate we go there and have a great time. It is by far our favorite place to be. They know just what we like and are ready with it when we arrive. The staff is wonderful and we appreciate them so much! What more can you ask for?
Fantastic food at very reasonable prices for big portions. All employees very cheerful and accommodating. This is definitely one of my favorite restaurants in Melbourne/Palm Bay; the food is true Italien!
I honestly cannot think of anything negative about the food or service. Enjoy!
Good food and nice waiter(owner/manager). Seemed to be a popular place for lunch. However, for the high lunch prices I would expect a little better Ambiance. The place looked like a deli and needed some pictures or at least tint the 1000 linear ft. of windows.
