Best cannoli in Philly

We've tried cannolis all over the Philly area and Isgros is the best! They use fresh cannoli shells and real ricotta,chees in the filling. Their Italian cookies are delicious as well.

Visiting from Florida as I was born in South Philly, I had for the first time ever the mini rum cake. Like everything made here for nearly 100 years it was wonderful. A Philly treasure like Termini's Bakery don't skip this place if you are in Philly after seeing the Liberty Bell, Betsy Ross, whatever stop here and pick up... More

My wife and I visited Isgro for the first time two years ago, when visiting her son, and it was one the first places we mentioned when visiting him recently. The cannoli's are very generously filled, and they are so popular they keep them handy stacked on a tray. The place was 3 deep with customers, in the middle of... More

Been getting cannoli here for 40+ years. It was the shop my Sicilian grandmother and aunt went to and I wouldn't go anywhere else. Service is usually friendly and efficient. They are not cheap and street parking can be a pain but figure out a way and go.

I took my wife to this place because I read that they had amazing cannolis. Well were not disappointed at all. The filling was amazing and they truly are the best cannolis we have ever had.They also have an amazing selection of pastries to try out. We definitely will go back to this place.

My friends live across the street, and their kids demanded we go to Isgros when we were visiting them in South Philly. My teens and I indulged and had the marscapone cannolis. They were indeed fantastic. I wish I had time to go back before I left Philly.

The best cannolis in Philadelphia, Try them filled with marscapone cheese, just so delicious. Everything here is wonderful. I swear, you can smell the aroma of this place a block away. If you're in Philly, definitely visit this place.

If we travel to or near Philadelphia, we make it a point to stop at Isgros. The pinogli (pine nut cookies) are delicious, as are the biscotti, and many other pastries. This time we regret not buying more of the almond horns. We find the staff friendly and very helpful if one is not familiar with the items.

Isgro's cannot and will not be beaten on cannolis. End of story. While there yesterday eating and walking around the Italian Market showing my Mom around we had to stop at this institution of baking. That being said the snow and wind were blowing making shopping a chore. One block away my Mom's nose honed in on the incredible smells... More
