Baked ziti
Classic Italian food at Panza
There's nothing like the North End at Christmas. Every restaurant is decorated. There are huge wreaths with big bows. Holiday pastries on display. Panza fits right in with its large snowflakes hanging in the windows and Christmas music playing in the dining room. It offers the perfect atmosphere to enjoy the season and enjoy a classic Italian meal.

Panza is cozy, just like other restaurants in the North End. Daily specials are handwritten on a mirror. The menu is full of Italian favorites and every meal begins with Italian bread with olive oil. Appetizers include calamari, bruschetta and grilled Italian greens. Entrees include hearty staples like chicken or veal picatta, eggplant, chicken or veal parm, braised beef short ribs and seafood risotto. 

Pastas include linguine carbonara, spinach & ricotta ravioli, lobster ravioli and linguine with clams. I ordered the baked ziti. This was a HUGE plate of pasta with two incredibly flavorful meatballs. Those meatballs were the star of the show. I had enough for lunch the next day and the leftovers were just as good as fresh. , ,
