“Surprisingly good Italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

Enjoyed my recent lunch. Delicious pasta fagiole. Penne for lunch was also quite good. Not a lot of good places for lunch in the area. Will return for dinner,

“Don't waste your time.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

Food just okay, server was rude and the room was way too noisy. Needless to say the 320.00 we spent there, was way overpriced for a family of 6. Will not be returning till they make much needed improvement.

“Delicious and satisfying!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

The food is of the best quality. Many of the vegetables that are on your plate come from their garden in the summer. They use sea salt which is full of minerals. The fish is fresh and delicious. The staff is friendly and professional. They let you sit and relax after a meal. I love coming here with my family. We always feel welcome. Meals are pricey yet you receive excellent quality food.

“Average at best”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2014

Visited Panevino for the first time on a Friday night. The restaurant was crowded and noisy; clearly catering to a family crowd as opposed to a romantic spot. The servers were friendly but not particularly fast in getting our drinks to us. The bread was only ok - something you should never have to say about an Italian restaurant.

We had three dishes and one app. (a salad). First, a dinner salad with shrimp. The salad was fine, but there were only three shrimp in it. I had chicken parmigana, which was a bit too greasy, and it was served with spinach. The spinach was great, but I am used to getting pasta with this dish. My wife got a margherita pizza, which was quite good - the hit of the evening.

The dishes above + a bottle of wine ran the bill to over $100 for three people. That is a lot when you consider one person had a pizza and another had a dinner salad.

In northern NJ, Italian restaurants have a high bar against which they are measured. Panevino came up short.

“Good food but noisy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2014

A solid stand-by for a bite before a movie; pizzas are very good. Restaurant is super noisy, so don't go for an intimate conversation.
