Panevino… Bread and Wine… The essentials of life.Osteria Panevino's prime location in the heart of San Diego's historic Gaslamp Quarter is just minutes from the Convention Center and most major hotels. Spacious dining room features some of San Diego's most highly acclaimed Italian cuisine and the casual atmosphere of an Tuscan osteria. Complementing Osteria Panevino's cuisine is an award-winning collection of domestic and Italian wines.

A hidden gem and your new favorite Vegas steakhouse, ENVY, offers an unforgettable experience. Avoiding a typical steakhouse look and feel, ENVY’s red high vaulted ceilings offset a glassed walk-in wine cellar with 1500 bottles of fine wine. A Chef's Table sits across from the open kitchen and the Wine Room offers an intimate experience for private parties. This gorgeous, hip monument to beef features dishes prepared by decorated Executive Chef Christopher Mihy. ENVY serves incredible dishes such as a 15oz Bone-in Rib-Eye, 12oz Bone-in Filet, 40oz Tomahawk, Veal Chop Milanese, and a Signature Sea Bass with famous sides such as Truffle Fries and Bourbon Creamed Corn. Premium Angus Steaks are aged for 28 days and seafood is meticulously prepared to perfection. ENVY won the Las Vegas Life Magazine Award for “Best New Restaurant Off the Strip”, has a Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor, is rated “extraordinary” by Zagat, & has won Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence since 2006.

"I took my family of 4 for dinner with a GROUPON and it was still very pricey and I'm not cheap. the cheese fondue was tasty, the sampler entre was rather tasteless, we had 3 little pieces of each and the Filet Mignon was chewy... For this price I'd rather go to Donovans or Mortons. Sorry Melting Pot but your food isn't of top quality and your prices should reflect that as well..."

"really good food at a reasonable price, we had the pork rotizido and it was out of this world... We sat in the bar for happy hour deals but it was only on alcohol not food and I was with my 19 year old so that didn't work for us. We should of sat in the dining room where it was a lot quieter. Oh well, next time..."
