Amazing Cannolli

The pastries are always fresh and prices are very reasonable.Petonito's offers their pasty in miniature and regular size. I usually buy the mini's so I can try a bit of each of my favorites.

This place is near my father's place, so I stopped by and bought a couple of their cannolis to bring to my dad. The shell was crisp and light, and the cream was tasty. I've been back once, but haven't tried anything but their cannolis, which are probably the best cannolis I've had in the New Haven area.

I have been going to Petonito's for more than 40 years. They made my wedding cake in 1974. The quality of the products has not changed. The Sr. Mr. Petonito ( now deceased) was a pleasure to know. Our family restaurant use to serve their pastries to patrons of the restaurant.

This local family bakery has exceptional pastry, cakes and cookies. They even have a giant canoli shell filled with canolis for any special occasion. Their chocolate covered canolis are like heaven in your mouth. The shell shaped pastries are wonderfully crunchy and creamy at the same time. You have got to try this gem in the old East Haven Mall... More

I wandered in here after going to the Bank of America next door one day. They were so nice to my kids, patient with me, and had the most delicious pastries and cookies. Everything smelled and tasted fresh, like it was made moments before. My new go-to for anytime I'm bringing things to a friend's house.
