bufala ricotta and Robiolo, or even just a good ricott. I just came back from a trip in philly and I got some of the best homemade and freshest ricotta ive ever had in my life

someone told mt about a cheese shop called "the cheese shop" on edicott st. how are they?

    Whole Foods has all of these cheeses. I'm not sure if Russo's has the fresh Ricotta. WF's has it sporadically. I'm sure there's a place in the North End that has good young cheese, although not sure about aged(robiolo).

      Last night I saw a Robiolo in the cheese case at DeLuca's on Charles St. If you're around that side of the common it might be worth popping in.

        Did you try Whole Foods? I've had great ricotta from them (the Brighton one - don't know about the others).

          Lionette's in the South End usually has a robiolo and a good variety of other cheeses.

            Does russo's have burata cheese?

            Russo's prices tend to be better than places like whole foods or formaggio. Plus, who does not love going to Russo's???

              Best bet is Salumeria Italiana on Richmond, Tutto Italiana on Fleet (burrata on Thurs or Fri) or the cheese shop 81 Encicott

                  JJ Pace has excellent ricotta. Don't know if it is bufala. I know their mozzarella is.

                    Kate, is Pace reopened in the North End? I thought the Big Dig got to them. If they are, I will rejoice.

                  Formaggio is great but also go to Russo's in Watertown.. Mark the cheese man won't steer you wrong.. he is FANTASTIC!

                    The cheese shop on Endicott is excellent. Bought a nice piece of Robiolo this weekend.

                      Formaggio Kitchen on Huron in Cambridge has two robiolas, one with three milks, one with two. They are excellent.
