A visit to San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter is not complete without dining at the iconic Osteria Panevino on 5th Avenue. The jovial Chef/Owner Vincenzo Loverso is a master of Italian Cuisine. The Tartare di Manzo, a prime filet tartare with shallots and black truffles topped with a quail egg, was heavenly. All breads, pastas and desserts are made in house with love. The Lobster Ravioli in a butter and sage emulsion sauce and the Lamb Ravioli in a wild mushroom, garlic and rosemary sauce both had perfect texture and flavor balance. The veal shank in the hearty Ossobucco Milanese is slowly braised in red wine to bring out the full rich flavors of the meat. The succulent Chilean Seabass was pan-seared in a garlic white wine sauce and served with scrumptious lobster mashed potatoes. Delicious desserts such as the Cheesecake or Tiramisu were served of course, with Limoncello. On the drink side, there’s a fantastic selection of craft cocktails such as the refreshing Blueberry Lemontini and an exceptional wine list.

The decor is based on Tuscan Farmhouse style with imported terra-cotta flooring, ceramics and marble. The daily happy hour from 4pm-6:30 features fantastic food and drink specials. Panevino also is an ideal venue for corporate and private events.
