    SD is not a heavy weight for Italian, you may need to make your own. Pretty easy at that.

      Jack Fisher is a local pastry chef who has worked around town at many of the finer locations. He makes a spectacular panna cotta. I think he started his own chocolate business a few years ago and I don't know if he's still pastry cheffing around town any longer or not. If he is, and you can find out where he's working, you can bet panna cotta is probably on the menu and it'll very, very good.

        9-10's various Panna Cotta's remain one of my favorite SD dessert offerings.

            I'm no panna cotta expert, but PIzzeria Bruno makes one that I like - its a great finish to a pizza meal there anyway. I like the blackberry sauce they use (though, like I said, I have no clue about its authenticity)
