Our Cannoli

Our most famous item, our homemade cannoli shells are mixed, rolled, and fried all by hand! Each cannoli shell is filled with our traditional sweet filling made with creamy ricotta and dusted with powdered sugar for a decadent finish.

Our Shells

Unlike most shops, we make our shells in-house and 100% from scratch. That bubbly, crispy, signature crunch of our cannoli shells comes from hours of time and energy.

We start by mixing up our cannoli dough, which, like many traditional recipes, includes wine and vinegar to add flakiness to our pastry. By contrast, though, we include honey and butter for extra flavor. So unlike others you might have had before that only taste like greasy, fried oil, ours are tasty enough to stand alone (but c’mon, we know you’re really here for the fillings). Since we make our shells by hand, we can also experiment with additions that add an extra layer to our flavors, like ground espresso or fresh rosemary.

Then, our dough is rolled so thin you can actually see light shine through the other side. Each sheet of pastry is cut, rolled, and shaped again before frying. We spend two days making, resting, and rolling our dough, and then it can take upwards of six hours to shape and fry a single batch of our shells — a true labor of love.

Once ready, each of our shells are dipped to order in chocolates, nuts, and more to make every cannolo extra decadent!

Our Fillings & Flavors

Our cannoli fillings are made the traditional way with sweetened ricotta cheese. We source our ricotta from happy Jersey cows, bringing unparalleled quality and flavor to our mixes.

Each filling is mixed to order for each customer, every time — that’s why our minimum order of each flavor is three (have you ever tried measuring just 1g of something? It’s hard!).

To celebrate the high quality ricotta in our filling, we don’t use tons of sugar to mask it’s flavor. Our cannoli aren’t overly sweet like some americanized versions of this Italian classic: we keep it simple and traditional.

We never use fake flavorings or imitation extracts in our cannoli, making sure you get only the best. With over 20 flavors to choose from, each is inspired by something we love. Our nutella cannoli is an ode to Nicole's husband - he's been eating nutella straight off the spoon for the better part of a decade and doesn't show signs of stopping. Or take our cinnamon honey latte cannoli, inspired by a trip to Savannah, where she had the best coffee and hasn't been able to forget it since.

We also love to surprise our customers with new and innovative flavors to mark special occasions, holidays, or highlight the season. Check out our full menu below to find your new favorite cannoli flavor!
