“A Fabulous Experience”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

I cannot commend this restaurant/pastry shop enough!
The food was amazing and the cannoli's were the BEST!
Me and my fiance went there every day we were in Waterville and we can't wait to go back! The owner is fabulous and so nice and is the mastermind behind the authentic food of Holy Cannoli. She has a fabulous staff and the decor is amazing! Not only is there pastries that are delicious, authentic and affordable, but there is amazing dishes to enjoy as well!
I am extremely choosy and found no error here at all. Well done!!

“Highly recommended -- a little taste of Italy on Main Street in Central Maine”
Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

World class pastries here. If you are not familiar with cannoli and other Italian pastries, you should be. Step in and ask the staff, who can explain the options. They have a range of variations on the traditional cannoli, including different creamy fillings and two sizes -- the small sizes are worth the dollar price tag! There are some gluten-free offerings, too. It is always nice to find a great locally-owned shop selling excellent house-made products. This place is a stand-out!
P.S. love the vintage family photos hanging up on the wall.

“Outstanding Baked Goods”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

My wife & I came upon Holy Cannoli while passing through Waterville, Maine and decided to eat there because of their catchy name. Once inside, the quality of the food and friendliness of the employees quickly reinforced our decision. We chose a variety of baked goods and were not disappointed in any of them. Service was excellent. We recommend that anyone in the Waterville area check out this place...it is one of that city's hidden treasures.
