After Exchanging cards and taking our annual Valentine Photo and relaxing most of the day, we drove to get our good friends from Oregon, Don and Carolyn at their timeshare for a Valentine dinner.
I had made reservations at Panevino's Italian Restaurant. We are here last year with our campground group on Valentine's Day. The restaurant is located near the airport on 246 Via San Antonio. The food is delicious and the epitome of Italian hospitality where guests are treated like family.
Don and Carolyn who are Wine Connoisseurs and Oenophiles after much discussion with the Sommelier, decided on a bottle of Brooks 2012 Pinot Noir. They also have a relationship with Brooks as they sold their Vineyard to them. Don and Carolyn had a winery and vineyard is years past called Hidden Springs. The story of Brook's Winery is quite interesting and suggest you google. brookswine.com

After much discussion over the menu, we made our decisions. Don ordered the Braised beef short rib risotto in a red wine sauce, Carolyn the Linguini Seafood, John the Eggplant parmesan and I the Scottish Salmon with vegetables and roasted potatoes. The service was very attentive. If you dine here, suggest you make reservations. Think they are closed on Sunday. Valentine Day on Sunday was exception.
