We've had lots of Cannoli in lots of places! This cannoli will not disappoint! We've been told of great Cannoli's in south Phily, but I've not found better! Relaxed atmosphere for so many varied kinds of Italian treats and excellent coffee. Great staff!

Have heard of the Vaccaro legend and can only share on the cannoli experience. Wanted to have the cannoli for dessert and clerk recommended that we buy the filling and fill the pastry shells close to meal time. Used a Martha Stewart piping set. How delicious and reasonable in price. There is an incredible array of desserts and took a... More

We stopped in for some cannolis after dinner in the Inner Harbor and was blown away with the quality, service and flavors! We were served right away even though they were packed, and the cannolis were incredible.

We stopped here during a heatwave hoping to sit in the Ac for a while and cool off with a little gelato. We were delighted by the expansive menu. Lots of great lunch options and a fantastic range of pastries and cold treats. We ordered raspberry granitas, one small and one large. As an afterthought we ordered an eclair. The... More

We stopped here after dinner and enjoyed a few treats for dessert. There was quite a line so apparently it's a popular spot. We tried several different items and they were all as good as the ones we get in Boston. This is a fun place worth seeking out.

This is an incredible, authentic Italian pasty shop that is basically a staple for locals or anyone visiting! We love their canolis and pizzelles. Just a forewarning - they do charge extra on the pastry items if you're eating there! We actually sat down and compared prices - saw the up charge and decided to get ours to go.

Thank you for the review! So glad you enjoyed our cannoli and pizzelles. Our prices are different for sit down however most items are larger and we offer more items for sit down. Our cannoli is the same size shell except we OVER stuff the shell with our Famous Cannoli Cream for the sit down portion. The reason why you... More

It's wonderful with huge portions and plenty to share or take home. The variety is awesome and you won't be disappointed no matter how finicky your gang is.

The cannoli was delicious, albeit a it too large - I mean cmon, why not make it normal size and give a better price? My cappuccino was weak - made by a staff of war seemed like summer help out of school and inexperienced. Cant do that when you have a reputation to keep up and better coffee in starbucks... More

Thank you for the review. If you ever came over to my house for dinner my father would serve you more food then you can eat and want you to eat even more. I guess those methods became apart of our business too. I'm sorry your cappuccino was weak. We should have made you a new one. Come back again... More
