Ricciotti Pizza Pasta Deli

Hot Chocolate

Hot Chocolate

Nothing better to kick start our meal at Ricciotti than a cup of Hot Chocolate ($5). We were given a choice of Italian or Asian flavour. The Italian version of the Hot Chocolate was dense and very thick. There was a top layer of foamy froth, which was very rich and viscous. The flavours were strong and evident of premium chocolate quality. At the end of a day’s work, it was simply comforting to sip down this warm cup of pure delight.

Rigatoni Al Telefono

Rigatoni Al Telefono ($19.50) – Rigatoni with eggplant mozzarella in tomato basil sauce. The biggest flaw of the Rigatoni Al Telefono was its lack of sauce. There wasn’t enough tomato sauce to thoroughly encompass the rigatoni, hence certain portions tended to be a little drier and not as flavourful. The eggplant came in chunks, contrary to what we had expected. In fact, we had hoped for something like a parmigiana, where the eggplants came in slices, and were covered with cheese. For the Rigatoni Al Telefono, we could see mashes of mozzarella cheese, but we still found there to be inadequate. On the whole, the Rigatoni Al Telefono had strong flavours, but was let down by the insufficient amount of sauce and cheese.



Dessert for the night was the Nutella pizza ($11.90)! Replacing the typical tomato based and cheese toppings was a layer of Nutella spread sprinkled with chopped hazelnuts. The pizza crust was a bit tough to slice through. Obviously, the nutella was chocolately and rich, but we found that once again, the spread was a tad too thin and not mind blowing enough. Somehow, the Nutella pizza appeared to be something that could be easily whipped up at home.
