Porreca’s Restaurant – Lake George Restaurant Review

Let’s just cut to the chase here — Porecca’s Restaurant is one of the best restaurants I’ve dined at in Lake George, and easily ties my previous favorite eggplant rotolini of all time. The food and the service were excellent and the atmosphere was very welcoming.

After looking through the menus for Lake George Region Restaurant Week, I decided Porecca’s was where I wanted to try first, because of all the vegetarian options on the restaurant week menu. The eggplant dish was first to catch my eye, and how could you beat a three course meal at this place for only $20.11?

First off, they start you out with fresh focaccia tasting bread and homemade butter. Typically, I would have been disappointed because they were serving butter instead of olive oil, but then I tasted it — the butter was creamy, soft and spread perfectly without completely melting.

For my appetizer, I ordered the mozzarella and tomato salad, which features layers of homemade fresh mozzarella, heirloom tomatoes and basil drizzled in a balsamic reduction. Lines of the balsamic reduction soaked into the top layer of mozzarella to give it a bold, but not too strong flavor.

Next came the main course — eggplant rotolini. Oh.My.Gosh.

The eggplant was cooked perfectly — not too firm or chewy, but also not mushy or soft. The rolls of eggplant were filled with rich, creamy, homemade ricotta. Fresh, melted mozzarella along with a little sauce made the perfect topping. All of the flavors meshed equally.  It’s served with a side of thin spaghetti covered in a light marinara sauce. Once the dish gets to your table, they offer fresh cracked pepper or fresh grated Parmesan. (I went for the fresh parm)

Everything tastes very fresh, like it is made-to-order. I really love that it’s also all homemade — the cheese, the butter, the cream, the ricotta — everything! 

As if the meal wasn’t rich enough, it ended with homemade pan cotta — a vanilla flavored Italian dessert that was so rich, creamy and sweet. It started with a vanilla flavor and finished with a very light citrus aftertaste.

I love that it’s served in wine and champagne glasses!

In case you’re curious, the dessert on the right is their chocolate mousse. It has a powerful dark chocolate taste that gives you the sensation of a chunk of expensive chocolate melting in your mouth.

If You Go:

*Give yourself plenty of time. It’s a small restaurant, and they don’t rush you.
*Much of the wine list is by the bottle. Order the bottle, it will come out cheaper.
*If the outside dining area is open, try to get the table furthest to the end/wall, because you’ll have a view of the lake.
*In addition to the restaurant, they have a nice bar area perfect for grabbing a quick cocktail, meeting for a first date or enjoying a glass of wine while you wait to be seated.
