“Save room for dessert” is all too often wasted on dry cheesecake and reheated molten lava cakes. This departure is a healthy scoop of creamy, sweet, imported Italian buffalo milk ricotta cheese. It’s whipped, chilled and served drizzled with locally sourced organic honey and sprinkled with toasted pistachio nuts. The final effect is both smooth and crunchy, sweet and savory and just a little sour, not unlike Greek yogurt. And just 300 calories! Enjoyed with an espresso, a partner in crime and two spoons, this is a dessert to share and discuss as you finish up a great Italian meal. $6.95, 3555 S. Town Center Dr., Suite 105, 586-6500, DueForni.com.
