Good Ricotta in Orlando?

  • m
  • 4

Does anyone know of a place to buy good quality ricotta-not that grainy watery tasteless stuff you can buy at any and all grocery, but the good decadent creamy textured kind. I used to buy at an Italian market where I used to live but can't seem to find it anywhere here. Makes such the difference in cooking! Thanks in advance!

  1. I would try Antonios on 17-92 in maitland. The downstairs cafe/deli has a large selection of italian meats and cheeses. Good bet they have some decent ricotta.

    1. Here is the Oct 2008 Ethnic Grocery Guide from the Sentinel.
