Solid Italian this evening for dinner at Panza. I arrived without a reservation at 630pm and was fortunate to get a two-top table right at the window where my entertainment was the pedestrian and vehicle traffic along Hanover Street.
Service was top notch with a friendly waiter who kept my food coming at a good pace.
I started off with a Caesar salad, which was quite large for a starter with a light dressing and plenty of croutons and shaved Parmesan. Definitely enough to share.
Main course, I chose the spaghetti vongole in the spicy sauce. A very good sized portion with scallops, shrimp, clams and mussels. The pasta was perfectly cooked and the sauce was plenty spicy. My only complaint here is that a restaurant of this quality deserves freshly grated cheese on pasta rather than a table shaker. But that’s a very small problem.
I opted not to get dessert at the table and picked up a Mike’s canoli on the way home instead.
Great dinner at Panza!
