Hands down the best cannoli! Stop in and try for yourself. Homemade shells and a variety of fillings.

Tried mikes and liked it, but went to the North End for another one and the line was too long, so we walked down the street and my husband wanted gelato ... and I saw a sign to make your own cannoli! So we stopped...More

We stopped by with friends last night and had many flavors of gelato, Perfect ending to a great Italian meal in the North End!

We passed on the other places that pre fill their cannolis and tried this place. It was so hard to choose between the gelato and the cannolis. We tried both and each were quite good.

Gelato was delicious but pricy- about $5/dish. No places to sit so take it to go or sit on a nearby bench

Before visiting, I had never had gelato or cannoli so I can not compare my experience to other places. I can say both were good, but not something I'll dream about. If anything, it makes me wonder if these treats are meant to be better....More

In great location for North End but service rude, only takes cash with no sign and overpriced for tiny cup of gelato.

Great place for a break while doing the Boston Freedom Trail walk. You can have plain or chocolate coated cannoli with 7 different fillings with 3 different dips on the ends! Leave the gun!

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church
