Pane e Vino's Italian food is so deliciously authentic that you might think it was pulled straight out of the Mediterranean Sea. In fact, it's even better: local and sustainable.

Pane e Vino is providing their guests with the freshest local seafood available by co-hosting a seafood dinner on August 28, at 6:30 p.m., with the South Carolina Aquarium's Sustainable Seafood Initiative. Chef Alfredo Temelini has prepared a mouth-watering five-course dinner based on the area's most sustainable fish, Italian recipes and cuisine, and topped off with hand-selected wine pairings.

Offerings include:

  • Gazpacho con gamberetti: Chilled gazpacho soup with shrimp ceviche paired with Garganica Ripassita
  • Tartara di tonno: Tuna tartar with a side of summer salad, paired with Sauvignon Blanc
  • Tagliatelle alle vongole: Homemade tagliatelle with clam ragu, paired with Verdicchio/Vermentino
  • Grigliata mista di pesce: Grilled salmon with pesto sauce, grilled grouper with oil lemon rosemary sauce and seared scallops with balsamic reduction, spinach and potatoes, paired with Pinot Grigio
  • Sgroppino: Lemon sorbet with vodka

Sit back, relax, and enjoy a meal full of seafood, drinks and friends. Sustainable Seafood Initiative representative Whit McMillan will be on hand sharing information with guests on sustainable seafood and what species are the best choices when eating out and at home.

Tickets are $59; taxes and gratuity are not included. Reservations can be made by calling (843) 853-5955. Ten percent of proceeds will go to the South Carolina Aquarium.
