At this point in the evening, my picture taking is getting progressively blurrier, heck I probably shouldn't even be using a nice camera. The four of us were thoroughly enjoying ourselves. Despite all that food, this was a serious booze infested dinner crawl, as I went from perhaps the strongest gin martini ever at Fiore, to a bottle of sparking wine at Mare, a bottle of red wine at Mamma Maria, and now a Bailey's on the rocks at Prezza. They don't skimp on pours, three of us were the recipients of glasses loaded with the stuff. Given the fact that most restaurants in the North End don't serve dessert (kindly leaving it to the pastry shops and caffes) either that or they give you two options (tiramisu and cannolis) Prezza's menu is certainly a rarity and branches out from the neighborhood norms. The grand finale began with White Chocolate Bread Pudding ($10) with vanilla bean ice cream and creme anglaise. It was thick, moist and bursting with balanced sweet flavors. We also shared the Fig and Cocoa Turnover ($10) with a lovely pistachio gelato and port wine sauce. The turnovers were crisp and flaky, beholding rich warm fig with hints of cocoa. The gelato in both instances was perfectly creamy and a thoughtful addition to the desserts
The staff at Prezza were a delight. Despite the restaurant being busy at peak Saturday night dining time, and the fact that we did not have a reservation, the hostess didn't hesitate to seat us at a four top in the crowded dining room, simply to indulge in dessert.
