Ricotta pie in Wellesley/Needham/Natick/Fram'ham?

veryveryrosalind Apr 4, 2007 06:20 PM

When I used to live in Cambridge I deeply enjoyed the ricotta pie from La Contessa bakery in Davis Square: sweet, shortbready crust; dense, moist, faintly lemony-almondy ricotta filling. I moved to Wellesley last year, and now that it's almost Easter I would like to find another source. Does anyone know where to buy one in the general Metro-Southwest area?

    You may want to try Antoines Bakery in Newton. It is on Watertown street in Nonantum which is heavily populated with Italian families as well as wonderful little food shops. Antoines has delicious little pinenut cookies too.

        There is only on place in the boston area for the absolute best ricotta pie, it is Royal Pastry Shop on Cambridge ST in Cambridge, my family has been going ther for 50 yrs, I have been trying to find a recipe that comes close but so far I have had no luck. I keep trying. Let me know if you go, I love to turn people on to this fantastic bakery.
