A light in suburgatory - Pasta Pane (Clifton Park)

Clifton Park gets discussed on this Board as a culinary wasteland filled with family friendly chains. There's a light in suburgatory and I've been back to Pasta Pane AGAIN. Not a fan of Chianti and never been to Forno.

Went recently. Started with the warm bread and EVOO. Had the rice balls appetizer. Large portion of 6 rice balls (took half home). Very good. Also had the prix fixe dinner. Started with the grilled bread with ricotta, leeks and roasted tomatoes. Delicious. I will replicate this dish at home.

Had the chicken with eggplant and roasted tomatoes. It was good. I like the pollo funghi better. Have not tried their pastas or pizza yet.

Unlike Bellini's, Pasta Pane's espresso is hot. Excellent service, thanks to Chris.

PS Only downside of the open kitchen is when I left my clothes smelled like food . . .
