I find this an excellent recipe and have made it about four times already - it's so simple and a savoury delight!
I disapprove of that other review who's writer does not like radicchio... it's like rating a vanilla ice cream poorly because you don't like vanilla! If you've never tried radicchio before and find it unpleasantly bitter that's not the recipe's fault! Or, if you already know radicchio and fear its bitterness, moderate the dish with more sweet caramelised onions (I go for a large onion myself) or more ricotta. Also btw I don't bother draining oil from the capers anymore... I don't see any benefit.
