Federal Hill offers plenty of options for lunch and dinner. If you're craving lobster ravioli or veal parm, though, Pane E Vino is worth a visit. It's a small place on the western end of Atwells Avenue, and the limited on-street parking in this section of Providence is a welcome extra. It's a small place, with tables close together, and it can be noisy on a busy night (especially Saturdays). The Sweetie and I have visited several times, and enjoyed each meal. On our most recent visit, we were there for a very early dinner, and though the server was pleasant and attentive, we felt a little rushed to choose entrees, finish app and salad, and pay the bill. That aside, the food was as delicious as on our previous visits. We started with Point Judith calamari (very tender) and a beet/arugula salad (fresh greens, portion was a little small). The ravioli was terrific, and the portion size (8 ravioli) just right. The Sweetie enjoyed his veal, which came with a side of ziti in a hearty marinara sauce. It would have been too much/heavy for me, but he enjoyed every bite. The wine list has a well-chosen selection of wines by the glass; I enjoyed a glass of the Nebbiolo and it went well with the ravioli. Buon appetito!
