Have to feed about 6 people. Would like a not-too-sweet, not-too-big cake.
Veniero's has the perfect sized cake, reasonably priced and tastes nice too. However, for this occasion I am looking for something more heavy on the ricotta; Veniero's seems to be a hybrid cream cheese and ricotta, and there are other Italian cheesecakes I've had in the city that are more heavily ricotta. However, I have only had them at restaurants where only individual slices are sold.
Willing to go to Brooklyn as well. Unfortunately Monte's Venetian Room only sells individual slices. I have not been to Monteleone's but have seen on posts that their cheesecake is on the sweet side, and don't know if they sell whole not-too-big cakes. I have read here that Angelo's is good, but it is a bit of a trek and don't know if they sell whole cakes, or even if they do, if there is anything closer that would be a viable alternative.
Any recommendations welcome.
