Great Dessert but thats about it

Went in for an early dinner on a Friday night, arrived to be the only ones in the place having dinner, a few what seemed to be friends of the manager at the bar. The apps were cold and tasted microwaved the meatballs and sausage, never was asked how it was. The Chicken Parm was nothing to give me... read more

You have to drive a ways to find Wholly Cannoli on the plains of southeast Aurora, but it's worth it. The food is very good. My wife had stromboli and I went with pasta Bolognese. Both were very nice and filling. We purchased pastries for later and they were wonderful. Wish we lived closer especially for the bakery. The restaurant... More

We tried this place out for the first time on a Friday evening around 6:00 pm. It is located in a small mall so there is parking although you may park over by the grocery store as there aren't a lot of spots by the restaurant and it is close to the Parkway Grill. First, this place is very small,... More

I've been to Wholly Cannoli a half dozen times, the food is excellent, and the pastries are out of this world.

We have been to Wholly Cannoli a few times now and we are never disappointed. The family owned and operated restaurant has that special touch that comes from the heart of the people that are vested in it. We love the thin crust pizza and the homemade desserts are to die for!

This is definitely the best Italian restaurant in Denver. Delicious food, wonderful staff and friendly environment, not to mention the owner who is simply great! If you want to try authentic Italian food, this is the place to go! Don't forget to try their delicious desserts!

Simple, but delicious Italian cuisine. The smell, the taste, and the feel of the restaurant is stimulating. Service was a little slow, and sometimes disorganized, but the food was great. The restaurant was very busy for a Wednesday night with many people waiting to be served, and I could understand why after tasting the food. I tried several dishes and... More

I have picked up pizza from here many times. There is no pizza even close to as good as this pizza in the area. The desserts also are absolutely delicious. Unfortunately, I have never and I mean never had good service. There just seems to be no management or direction in the restaurant. I will continue to go here, but... More

This food is to die for. The chef makes excellent pizzas and pastas. The atmosphere is good. The service could use a little work but so far so good!

This 5 star review is for the pastries only. We visited this place shortly after moving here in December. My grandparents were Sicilian and I was excited to see the pastries after reading the reviews. Because it was a week before Christmas we walked into the restaurant and I was immediately assaulted with absolutely amazing and wonderful childhood food memories.... More
