Did someone say rocky road calzone? Kent Town’s new pizza and wine bar will have you saving room for dessert.
Now open on King William Street, Pan and Vine is the new venue by brothers Luke and Anthony Savas. After honing their skills at the West Beach Pizza Bar and working with dough for more than a decade, the brothers are going out on their own for the funky pizza and cocktail spot.
Their big point of difference with the new venue is the oven, and this time around they’re literally cooking with gas.
“Veering away from wood-oven we are using a gas-powered, rotating stone base in addition to producing a quality pizza with locally sourced produce,” says Anthony.
Pizzas range from your classic flavour combinations to a green pizza topped with broccolini, rabe and spinach, the ‘artie bucco’ with artichoke, mushroom and truffle shavings, and the ol’ faithful ham and pineapple. Two pasta dishes are available from what will be a rotating pasta menu, and all of the dietary requirements are catered for, from gluten free bases to vegan cheese.
But don’t fill up on the mains – as well as the rocky road calzone, which comes loaded up with marshmallow, cherry, macadamias and ice cream, you can tuck into a Portuguese tart.
Wines include interesting drops from across the Barossa and McLaren Vale, with an Italian pinot grigio for good measure, and a negroni-based cocktail list.
For now, Pan and Vine is a lunch spot, open 11am-3pm Monday to Friday, but they will be open for dinners from August 4.
