Best Value: This charming, unmarked Italian restaurant is tucked just off of Upper King Street onto quiet, residential Warren Street, within walking distance of many hotels and shops. At Pane e Vino, you'll enjoy a cozy, authentic Italian fine dining experience, for a fraction of the cost you'd expect to go along with your meal. Pane e Vino owner Alfredo Temelini is very dedicated to his Italian family's traditions of cooking and attentive service, and it shows in the beautiful presentation of each dish. Most entrees at Pane e Vino range from $15 - $25, a modest request for items such as the Ravioli Alla Casalinga with spinach and ricotta fillings, Cioppino seafood stew, or Penne Alla Maremnana with spicy sausage and wild mushrooms. The charcuterie boards, daily dessert specials and a carefully selected Italian wine list at Pane e Vino make for a well-rounded and romantic evening out.
Romantic Dining: There's something about Italian comfort food that makes us love whomever we're enjoying the meal with at the moment, or better yet, enhances the feelings already shared. At Pane e Vino, at home on quiet Warren Street downtown, the welcoming presence of the owner combines perfectly with the cozy, candlelit ambiance of the restaurant itself. The small, ivy-covered brick building is attached to an outdoor courtyard adorned with string lights--an absolute must in Charleston's warmer weather and undoubtedly some of the best seats on the house. Take the server up on their wine recommendations, and order a classic from the delightful Pane e Vino menu, like the Penne alla Maremanna or the Gnocchi allo Zola.
Italian: Almost every city hides away one special restaurant off the beaten tourist path that is reliable, comfortable and delicious. Nondescript from the outside, but full of local spirit, Pane e Vino is just such a place, tucked away on quiet Warren Street with only a chalk board to proclaim its existence there. Entrees range from $15 - $23, a modest request for an authentic menu dedicated to vivid flavors and presentation. A meticulous attention to detail is paid to every dish, as evidenced by interesting antipasti starters like the Smoked Duck Breast on Sardinian flatbread, and main courses like the homemade spinach ricotta ravioli. Order the Cioppino to share - this seafood stew simmers in a light tomato sauce with fish, shrimp, mussels, scallops and lobster. Pane e Vino is a small venue - be sure to make reservations, and ask for a table in the festively lit outdoor patio.
