Really outstanding Italian dessert! We had a dinner party for six and this was a great way to cap off the meal. There's a cake maker in a town adjacent to mine that makes the BEST cakes and this torte rivals his. Thanks for the recipe!

YUM-A-LISHOUS! Followed this almost to a T, however I used 8 oz. cream cheese (the light version)and put it together like a trifle. The top I garnished with chocolate shavings. Wonderful flavor. Oh and I also used 2 T espresso powder w/ water for the coffee. Can't wait for another occasion to make this again. TY
