I had a disappointing experience in Little Italy and came to Osteria Panevino in Gaslight Quarter. Here I had a fabulous, authentic meal. Waiter Gian Carlo recommended wine and vegetarian options. Excellent cappuccino for dessert.

The food was good as was the service. All Sicilians cooking & working here, so you can't go too wrong. I would return here but try it for dinner the next time I am in town.

Food, atmosphere, and Gian Carl (our waiter) were all amazing! We came here after a conference and were able to sit back, laugh, and enjoy each other’s company while savoring wine and excellent food.

Came across this restaurant by chance and they are super friendly and charming. Delicious lunch in a very relaxed atmosphere, helped by several never ending mimosas. We ordered from the lighter morning menu, but having looked at the full menu wished we could have come...More
