Cannoli was excellent, we arrived at the door and were shown where to line up. Cannoli was good and I'd happily advise Cannoli lovers to give it a go. Albeit the staff are a bit rude but you don't come to eat the staff.

This was fantastic. We had two cannoli's and they were great. Had Cheese cone and it was probably better than Cannoli which is hard to believe. Great service and wonderful place. Will be back!!!

They boast about being Cannoli King, but I can't comment because I had the Cheesecake (which was excellent). Functional (laminate) tables and aluminium chairs but great food and good service. Worth a visit if you just want a coffee and cake or Gelato.

This bar/restaurant is an insult to Italian culture. No one is even remotely Italian, no one speaks the language, food is mediocre at best and with no resemblance to real Italian food. Yet, they pretend to be Italian in order to attract customers. It's a...More

The next time you are in the neighborhood, stop in and ask for the boss. He'd like to tell you something.

Nearby
Little Italy
While Little Italy is one of the city's smallest
neighbourhoods, its streets are packed with visitors
from around the globe, especially on summer weekends
when the streets are closed to traffic. Stroll up
Mulberry Street, the heart of Little Italy, for a
dense mix of Italian restaurants with sidewalk tables,
cafes, and old-school food shops. Don’t be surprised
when the hosts beckon you to pay them a visit. Stop in
