And The Winner is...

Congratulations to Panevino Ristorante for the best Italian food in town poll.

Livingston Patch readers have spoken, and in very close voting, Panevino Ristorante edged out Calabria Restaurant and Pizzeria in the Best Italian food poll of Livingston readers by a slim three-vote margin. Nero’s Grille was a close third. 

The stats are listed below:

•   Panevino Ristorante 30 (16%)
•   Il Ripasso 21 (11%)
•   Il Vicolo 19 (10%)
•   Calabria Restaurant and Pizzeria 27 (14%)
•   Stretch’s Restaurant 14 (7%)
•   Nero’s Grille 24 (12%)
•   Cosi 17 (9%)
•   Ricci’s at Livingston 19 (10%)
•   Cocco Bello Café 16 (8%)

Rather than us singing the praises of Panevino, we decided to allow a restaurant loyalist explain the appeal. So, here’s Patch commenter Brandon’s take on the restaurant from a January 2012 review:

“Amazing, amazing, amazing. My sister and I are college aged...whenever the 4 of us are home we make sure to come here, our favorite restaurant. They all love the Penne, simple and delicious. I personally go for the white pizza.”

Panevino Ristorante is located at 637 W. Mount Pleasant Ave. in Livingston.

Look for a roundup of our other Essex Italian food winners on Saturday. And stay tuned for Monday's next Best of poll on Livingston Patch!
