Italian Restaurant in Puerto Penasco, Rocky Point Mexico

I was visiting friends in Puerto Penasco this trip and last night, Nov. 13, 2012, my friend said let’s go to “Pane y Vino” which is a newer restaurant in Rocky Point. I read online reviews on Trip Advisor and there were many great reviews with 5 stars. My friend Maria said they are very good and she had been there before, so we went. We met Chef Luca Appendino from Italy. He has been at this location on Benito Juarez by the railroads tracks for over a year and recently renewed his lease. He will continue serving guests through August 2013. Chef Luca showed us his new project, the outside patio. It should be completed by the end of November this year. He plans to have portable heaters for those dining outside, however his concern is the food getting cold too fast. We had a wonderful conversation with him and he is very detail oriented, and wants to make sure his guests have an enjoyable meal and great memories. I complimented him on his staff. They were very attentive, even during the busy time during our meal. I asked Chef Luca what his favorite food was, he loves them all of course, but to choose just one, he says “the pasta”. He loves making fresh pasta for the ravioli. It makes all the difference in the meal. He was happy to sit down with us for a few minutes and take a break and chat. He is very friendly and loves to see his guests happy.  My friend and I shared a bottle of wine and had the Bruschetta and the Ceasar salad, and split both orders. What we had was delicious, the wine was great, and the whole bill was 440 pesos ($33) then we split the cost in half, then added tip, which made for an enjoyable and affordable evening. At the end, the server brought us a small “shot” of Sambuca, which is an Italian anise flavored delightful and strong after dinner treat, with 3 coffee beans in the shot glass. Once you drink the shot, you eat one coffee bean to represent the present, eat another coffee bean to represent your future, and you leave the 3rd coffee bean in the glass that represents the past. They say “leave the past behind”. Remember when you go, make sure to bring CASH, either US dollars or pesos. He has a large sign at the entrance “cash only”. This is a very cool place. I live in Puerto Vallarta now, and the feeling I got while here at Pane y Vino, I felt like I was at a Puerto Vallarta restaurant on the malecon. very nice ambience and classy.

William C. Gordon presents three detective mysteries in Rocky Point

By Rocky Point 360:

William C. Gordon presents three detective mysteries in Rocky Point

“Yes, I have been a story teller my entire life and always knew I would begin writing at 60,” replied writer William C. Gordon as he signed each of the three mystery novels I had just bought following his recent presentation at La Cava music bar. His dark brimmed hat, with an air of part private eye and part Indiana Jones, gave way to twinkling eyes and a curious smile when speaking of how he is often referred to as “Willy who?” as he is married to the renowned Chilean author Isabel Allende
