Panza: I Have a New Favorite Italian/North End Place!
I really liked this place. It's casual enough in there without insisting on stupid shit like plastic wine cups. It feels homey and rustic in a non-affected way. The dishes are still somewhat hit or miss, but the hits are right on.
The bread and oil were nice.
|You have to get the Wild Mushroom and Goat Cheese Spring Rolls with Honey Thyme Sauce ($7).|
|Grilled Italian Greens Salad ($7) with escarole, radicchio, baby arugula, crispy polenta, gorgonzola sauce, balsamic drizzle: This was actually kind of boring and soggy - skip it.|
Beef and Veal Tortellini ($16): Good not great
A friend got the Gnocchi Bolognese ($14) and I had one bite which was excellent and I will order that next time.
Eggplant Parm ($14): Nice. I even liked the marinara sauce fairly well, which is saying something for me.
