La Biscotteria (Redwood City)-- Great Canoli on Saturdays

YS | Feb 12, 2006 05:24 PM

I stopped in yesterday morning to check out their canoli and walked away with a box of six for $12. They are only made and sold on Saturdays. The shell is perfectly crispy with a faint touch of cinnamon. It complements the filling which is very light--not at all sludgy and grainy--with just enough chocolate (i.e. very little) and no citron. I think they might lighten it with whipped cream because it is so fluffy. Halved maraschino cherries decorate each end of the canoli which seemed a little weird initially, but was actually pretty tasty. By 10 PM, the shell had softened considerably, but the whole thing was still delicious. (Next time I'll take photos before they all get eaten)

Saturday is also foccacia day at La Biscotteria (1/4 sheet for $6-$7). I tried samples of the sausage and the tomato/green onion. I preferred the sausage because the toppings were well balanced and the crust had that delicious tang of salt and olive oil. The tomato one was fine, but not amazing. On the wall they have a list of the different flavors, I would definitely like to try the artichoke and pesto one at some point.

It looks like they are continuing to experiment with different biscotti flavors - they had triple chocolate hazelnut for sale.

The amoretti are yummy as always.

I'm still looking for a local source for ricciarelli though!
