Pane e Vino is always good--love their salads, pastas and mains. There was one problem however for a daily special pasta: really huge shell-on prawns with very long and skinny claws (looked like mini lobster-y crustaceans) were sauteed in a very tomato-saucy sauced pasta; while quite delicious, it was beyond messy to eat (you absolutely had to use your hands along with a nut cracker that was not the correct design for shellfish). No extra napkins were offered, nor were wet towels or finger bowls for cleaning up very messy fingers after. Two of us ordered this dish with the expectation that we would be eating large shell-free prawns.... Suggestion: grill those huge shellfish (untouched by tomato sauce) and serve them along side the sauced pasta! We'll definitely be back again for the restaurant's awesome food!

Consistently a winner for many years! There was a large crowd of Italians here Thurs night, the food, guests and ambiance made us feel like we were transported to Rome. Loved every minute! Gracie!

A friend took us here and we loved it so much, we came back later in the week and the food and service were just as stellar as the first time. We'll be returning the next time that we are in San Francisco.

Pane e Vino was a wonderful dining experience. The food was excellent, the wait staff friendly, easy going and very, very knowledgable about both food and wine. It was a delightful evening and we definitely would return again.

We celebrated a birthday here with our company and it was such a pleasant experience. All dishes were very fresh and you could tell that love was put into the food. Fresh pastas were flavorful and portion sizes were great! The staff sang Happy Birthday in Italian and it was such a fun time! They are great for all size parties and were able to accommodate our large table of 12.

We went there last Sunday for dinner with my family. The food was very good, the service was fine. The only thing was when my husband used the bathroom, when he was exiting the bathroom he stepped on a used toilet paper with BM on it. He told the manager but the manager did nothing about it. My husband had to clean his shoes. The manager was not concerned at all.
He was very disappointed

Everything about the dining experience at Pane e Vino is superb. My guests, who had not dined here previously, repeatedly remarked about the great food and ambiance and volunteered that they planned to return. I have dined here many times over the years and it just seems to get better and better. I am somewhat reluctant to post this review as I fear I might not be able to get a table in the future.

We love the - - - bistecca alla florentina! Of course everything is great - and lately if we are too full after our meal - desert is the affogato - strong coffee - sweet cream and ice cream - yummmy! Most important of all the Pane e Vino team is warm - welcoming - efficient and a big reason to keep returning!

Pan e Vino has been our reliable "go to" restaurant for many years. Many Union St. restaurants have come and gone, but Pan e Vino persists due to its consistent high quality food, friendly staff, and welcoming, neighborhood atmosphere. We always leave in a good mood, well fed, having met someone interesting, and with a handshake from one or more employees. We happily recommend Pan e Vino to guests looking for a true San Francisco local experience. Thank you for being there and for your commitment to excellence.

Booked this place last minute for New Year’s eve and it was available. The food was super delicious, we ordered papardelle con fungi and penne. The pasta had a perfect softness (dont fancy too soft pasta) so it was great dinner overall. The espresso was very spot on! Lovely dinner overall

We got there early, and tables weren’t ready, so we had no probables waiting and watching all the amazing food come by us. Then the manager gave us a glass of sparkling wine for waiting (they weren’t late- we were early)- super nice! Food was delicious (had the branzino and some pastas) and service was great. This is a neighborhood gem and a wonderful place for a nice dinner!

A favorite restaurant, but always a mistake to go on weekends. Need another waiter to handle the crowds. Artichoke not so good- maybe shouldn’t have it so out of season?
