Enjoy Bocce and Italian Food al Fresco at Panevino in Livingston

From Panevino Ristorante:

New bocce courts and outdoor seating are now open at Panevino Ristorante, one of New Jersey’s favorite Italian restaurants.  The bocce courts have long been one of the pleasures of dining at Panevino, open in the restaurant’s back garden since it opened just over 30 years ago, free for guests to use. This season, a complete renovation resurfaced and refreshed the courts, with new wooden scoreboards, expanded seating, and an outdoor bar, and overhead lights that twinkle as the sun sets.

Perfect for a summer evening, guests can play a game of bocce while enjoying a glass of wine with friends before or after their meal, for a relaxing slice of life all’ italiana.

Beloved for fresh ingredients grown in its own working herb garden, Neapolitan pizza, and a variety of delicious pastas, Panevino specializes in the cuisine of the Campania region of Italy. Panevino’s name comes from the Italian words “pane e vino” which translate to “bread and wine,” and a philosophy of the essentials of life. The menu features a selection of pizzas cooked in a wood-fired brick oven, resulting in a traditional Italian textured crust. The design of the restaurant is based on the look of a Tuscan farmhouse, with terra-cotta floor tiles, colorful ceramics, and custom art interpreting the basic theme of fruit, vegetables, bread and wine.

The bocce courts are open for restaurant guests any time Panevino is open. The space is also available for private parties.

Panevino is located at: 637 West Mount Pleasant Avenue, Livingston, NJ, 07039, Tel: 973-535-6160, www.panevinonj.com
