Those who vacation in Puerto Peñasco, Mexico, more commonly referred to as Rocky Point, know it for its gorgeous sandy beaches, friendly locals, and delicious authentic Mexican food. Rocky Point, at its roots, is a quiet fishing village, and many local restaurants take advantage of this by serving great fresh seafood at low prices. Rocky Point attracts tourists from all over the world, and many of the restaurants serve dishes that combine traditional local flavors, which appeal to residents, with familiar favorites that tourists will love.
However, there are those special restaurants that serve amazing food that would be at home in any metropolitan city. One of these restaurants is Pane e Vino, an Italian restaurant in the heart of a Mexican beach town that serves some of the best food you will find anywhere!
Fine Italian Puerto Penasco Dining
Pane e Vino, translated from Italian to English means “bread and wine,” which are staples of any authentic Italian menu. Pane e Vino is the best in fine dining in Rocky Point. They make all of their pasta fresh in house, and they use the fresh local seafood in several of their dishes.
Any of their dishes that feature local shrimp, such as the Shrimp Pesto and Shrimp Carbonara, are sure to please even the most discerning palette! Another menu favorite is the Filet a la Gorgonzola, an impeccably prepared piece of beef smothered in a delicious gorgonzola sauce and surrounded by fresh vegetables.
Their wine list is carefully selected to pair with each of their dishes, and their wait staff is friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable about their menu. It is definitely more of an upscale experience than most restaurants in Rocky Point, making Pane e Vino the perfect place for a quiet, romantic meal. However, you are still dining in a Mexican beach town, so the atmosphere is far from stuffy or pretentious. Expect freshly pressed white linens, and tasteful, decorative touches.
Pane e Vino first operated in a downtown location, next to the railroad tracks that divide the town in an unassuming strip mall. However, the owners decided that the upscale feel of the restaurant was deserving of a more upscale location. They have recently moved to Bella Sirena on the picturesque Sandy Beach. This new location makes for the perfect surroundings to a classy, delicious meal. If you are looking for something different that the typical Mexican fare during your next Rocky Point vacation, be sure to make a stop at Pane e Vino Ristorante.
