Every meal at Ristorante Pane e Vino is a celebration of what many think is the best food and drink in Puerto Peñasco and guests fortunate enough to dine there on July 3rd were treated to an extra-special evening of fine dining. Balloons and flowers welcomed guests to the party, and special meals were created especially for the anniversary. In lieu of birthday cake, Chef Luca Appendino created a giant tiramisu to share with guests for a sweet finale. One diner, whose name was drawn at the end of the evening, won a dinner for 2 gift certificate – lucky guest!

Featuring Italian and international fare, Ristorante Pane e Vino is a great choice for leisurely fine dining. The wine selection is excellent, the service even better, and the food is extraordinary.  I always intend to try something different, perhaps a shrimp or pasta dish from the menu. Again I am seduced by Filet a la Gorgonzola – superbly cooked filet of beef smothered in sauce made with gorgonzola cheese, served with sautéed fresh vegetables, and a basket of freshly baked bread – and I put off trying something new for next time.

Presently located on Blvd Benito Juarez where the railroad tracks cross the boulevard, Ristorante Pane e Vino will soon be moving to its new location at Bella Sirena on Sandy Beach. Regardless of the location, great food and drink, expertly served by attentive staff, in a beautiful dining room, will continue to be the standard in Luca’s restaurant. Call (044-638) 105-7455 for reservations, and email paneevinoristorante@gmail.com for location update. Provecho!
