5 on Friday: Food porn

ONE: One word, PANZA. My brother in law kept warning us that this restaurant was nothing inside. He even down played the food. And then it was the cutest and coziest little Italian restaurant. (Pardon the iphone photos)Panza CollageTWO: And then there was the food. (Again, excuse the iphone photos. I am not a food photographer). Let’s start with the rigatoni with Mama Panza’s meatballs mushed up inside.photo 5 (2)THREE: That doesn’t float your boat? How about the peppercorn steak that was as big as my head.photo 4 (3)FOUR: Still not your style? Maybe you’d like the bacon wrapped scallops in risotto?photo 3 (3)FIVE: What’s that you say? You’re more of a dessert person? No problem. There’s a mud pie that I want for every special occasion for the rest of my life.Mudpie CollageCoffee ice cream? Check. Oreo cookie crust? Check. The perfect amount of whipped cream and caramel on top? Check and Check. The 5 of us split it, but they saw how I was drooling all over it and let me eat about half of it by myself. That’s how you know your family loves you. :)

Not pictured is the best veal marsala I’ve ever had. Seriously, everything about this meal (and restaurant) was perfection. The service, the FOOD, the wine list (Rubicon and Cakebreak were on there!), and the view of Saratoga Lake (not pictured #bloggerfail). If you live anywhere near the Albany/Saratoga area, don’t walk, RUN to this restaurant. It was seriously delicious. I cannot wait to go back!  And now I need a snack.
