Before Mozza came to our neck of the woods, before the countless pizza-assembly-line joints arrived, Pizza e Vino was there. It opened seven years ago in Rancho Santa Margarita and was the first restaurant in OC to get itself certification from the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana, which is pretty much a required badge of honor these days if you're a Neapolitan-style pizza joint.
Next Tuesday, June 9th, at 6:30 p.m., Pizza e Vino is holding its first wine dinner to celebrate its seven year milestone–an event that its customers have been asking owner Steve Dickus to do for years.
The dinner is a five-course prix fixe. The price is $95 per person, and includes the wine.
Here's what to expect:
Fire-Roasted Bone Marrow with crostini, Maldon salt, roasted garlic
with Force of Nature Pinot Gris 2014, Murmer Vineyard, Santa Maria Valley
Wild Boar Bolognese
with Stasis Pinot Noir 2011, Murmer Vineyard, Santa Maria Valley
