Since I travel to Italy for about a month each year. I am very familiar with Italian cuisine from many parts of the country. This restaurant reproduces none of them. The cioppino I had was ruined by a sauce excessively tasting of lemon and onions which completely overshadowed the taste of the fish/shellfish ingredients. The fish was extremely dried out... More

The high point was the service. Fastest table set up I have ever seen, especially in a very busy restaurant. However the calamari was as tasteless as you could make it, my vongole were of equal quality although on a bed of perfectly cooked pasta. I did work in Italy for a year so I think I know proper Italian... More

We went to celebrate our 20 year old daughters birthday and found it so nice that we went there the day after to celebrate my wife´s 43rd birthday the day after. Nice and authentic Italian food, engaged staff and a varm atmosphere. We´re definetely going back when we go back to San Fransisco.

We tried Pane for the first time and had the margherita pizza and paillard of chicken. All dishes were fantastic. There was so much food we had no room for desert. Next time. Restaurant was packed. Always a very good sign.

What a surprise! A fantastic Italian restaurant in my neighborhood, and no wonder it was filled all night and people were still coming to eat at 9:00! Everything we ate was well prepared. We really loved the exquisite thin pizza as an appetizer. Mange!

We so much enjoyed our dinner at Pane e Vino. Warm welcome, many local families in evidence, the feel of a neighborhood favorite. Best mushroom risotto I've had in years. Good wine choices and not priced over the moon, lots of nice selections by the glass. I felt I could have come in and just ordered a simple pasta and... More

We walked here from Webster Street area (Marina Green), about an 18 minute walk), stopping along the way at various stores and shops. We arrived about a 1/2 hour early, before our 5:00 reservation and prior to them actually opening so we sat outside and waited. A few minutes before 5, we were able to pick our table. Very original... More

I am Italian, living in San Francisco, and find this restaurant one of the most authentic and genuine Italian places in the city. Not the usual modern upscale San Francisco restaurant that now you find in every corner, you enter Pane e Vino and for a moment you think you could be in Italy. Except for the wine, as usual,...

Staying in Marina District

Neighbourhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighbourhood into a party-going hotspot.
