The large dining room has a glass partition separating it from the pizza-making area, so you can watch your pizza being made. There are two large brick ovens used for the actual baking, and it's fun to observe.
You can watch the homemade dough being kneaded and tossed and stretched into shape.
While you're waiting for your pizza to cook, you can relax and enjoy the casual atmosphere in the dining room. If you're not in the mood for pizza, Ricetta's has an extensive menu which includes mouth-watering appetizers, calzones, lasagna, chicken or eggplant Parmigiana, Italian meatloaf, and scrumptious desserts.
The pizza buffet includes a soup and salad bar as well. Hubby chose to have some corn chowder which smelled wonderful! It was made with chunks of potato, carrots, celery, and corn.
Unfortunately, the South Portland dining room is closing, although they will continue to make deliveries to the surrounding area. The Falmouth store is larger and newer and a very pleasant place to enjoy Italian cuisine. If you make it to Falmouth, Maine, you really need to try this award-winning pizza!
