Panevino Trattoria

 Was able to meet up with my friend Jamie yesterday. He is visiting Seattle from Virginia, where we attended college. Here are some photos of our lovely meal at Panevino on Capitol Hill. I loved this restaurant. The ambiance was great, the staff were fast/friendly, the wine and food were excellent, and the portions were great for the price. If I'm ever in this area again, I will definitely go back!

Not pictured: That huge glass of Riesling that I normally wouldn't allow myself. It was delicious. 

Antipasto: Bruschetta

Antipasto misto, which is a plate of salami, prosciutto, olives, and grana (cheese)

I opted for the scallopine al marsala, which was "shut the front door" good. I've had mediocre and bad marsala dishes, and this was what a marsala sauce should be. Perfect.

Jamie had the house gnocchi with a pesto sauce. (I'm pretty sure he loved it, but it would have been rude of me to photograph his empty plate.)

Dessert. I normally would have chosen cannoli, but after I'd been walking around Seattle on an unusually hot day, this affogato was a perfect ending to an extremely pleasurable meal.

Jamie and I chose our dishes off of a kind of "prix fixe" menu. For our antipasti (starters), main courses, and dessert, the cost was $25/person, and the portions were huge! It was an awesome deal for well made food, and a great experience.

We survived music school together!
