I live in the UK and needed a gift card for my brother's birthday. They were brilliant. Sorted it and delivered it personally to him with balloons at All Pro Soccer & Sports Centre. A big thank you x

Tried this place for something sweet after having an awful meal down the street. Just tried the peanut butter cheesecake dipped in chocolate and a cannoli. The cheesecake bites tasted old like they had been in the case for far too long. The cannoli was just okay. Wouldn't rush back and wouldn't recommend.

Great selection and very fresh! Boston's North end without the traffic. When you are craving a goody that reminds you of your childhood .

I've been here many times, even though I'm not a big cannoli eater. Delicious milano cookies and cheesecake, yummy italians, very good veggie lasagna, friendly service. The meat lasagna has way too much cheese (and I love cheese), it's like a thick block. I keep trying the cupcakes but they are dry and don't have great flavor.

It was hard to decide on what to have for lunch as everything looked and smelled fantastic. I chose the Stromboli and enjoyed it very much. My colleague had the lasagna and raved about it. The owner checked on us midway through the meal which impressed me, especially because it was a busy lunch hour. I got a limoncello cannoli... More

Love their stombolis, and their cheesecake and tiramisu are to die for. We love dropping in for a quick bite.

It's a joy every time I walk through the door. Great atmosphere and fantastic food. This is a family run pastry shop right in downtown Waterville. Don't forget the Italian store next door. It's not to be missed either!

We came across Holy Cannoli today by accident. What an awesome place with a great staff. They insisted we sample various delicious treats. We left with a great variety of Cannoli and pie. What an awesome experience. Definitely worth diverting off the I 95 for :)

We had a lovely party with yummy sandwiches and cannoli. Very professional to deal with. Food ready for me on time. This place has great desserts in general. Stromboli is delicious. Soups are excellent. Atmosphere very home like. Staff friendly and efficient.
