    intrepid, do you bake? I've never eaten one as good as mine, and the recipe is from Polly-O. Verrrry easy.

    If you still want to buy, be sure it's from a place that sells Italian pastries.

        Good choice intrepid. Venieros has absolutely the best ricotta cheesecake I've ever had anywhere - moist, dense and perfect.

        Hi, I'm looking for the italian ricotta cheesecake recipe from the polly-o cookbook. I lost my cookbook. Would you share it with me? I'd be grateful.

          You should try the Home Cooking Board. Someone there may have it.

          There's a really good Italian deli in Eastchester called J&G deli. They make ricotta cheesecake only to order. It has a hint of lemon, so yummy. Once in a while they'll have some by the slice or a small cake around the holidays. If you want a big one, just call them.

            got from venieros, and artuso/thorwood, artuso was way to dry, not good, venieros much better

              Don't know if they would do the whole pie for you, but La Manda's in White Plains used to do an amazing ricotta cheesecake.
