If you’ve managed to save room for dessert at Del Posto, we applaud you; then, we must recommend some of our favorites. The chocolate ricotta tortino, encased in toasted pistachios, has a rich chocolate top layer that exposes a creamy, ricotta-based interior and is paired with an extra-virgin olive oil gelato set on a bed of crumbled chocolate cookie crumbs. It’s a dessert that’s worth waiting for. For more traditional Italian fare, we recommend the panna cotta, which is topped with browned butter and served with greenmarket apples. The texture is light and airy but with a rich quality of flavor. A more unusual menu item at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant is the melanzane e chocolato: baby Japanese eggplant that’s cut into thin medallions and layered with a sheep’s milk ricotta, baked in the oven with a touch of acacia honey and chocolate chips and finished with a warm chocolate sauce.
