Ask not what your cannoli can do for you, but what you can do for your cannoli

Ask not what your cannoli can do for you, but what you can do for your cannoli

In Brooklyn, real estate prices will rise and fall, the F train will go in and out of service, and the price of pizza will inch ever upwards, but as sure as the Cyclone will give you neck cramps and there is traffic on the BQE, South Brooklyn will boast the best cannoli this side of the Atlantic — but which of these local landmarks does it best?

    I can’t vote because I have no idea how any of these stack up. I just now realize how long it has been since I had cannoli from the neighborhood. I need to rectify this situation.

  • Sal Russo

    U left out Elegante on Ave U

    • Sean F

      Oh, man! If Elegante’s cannoli are as good as their apple turnovers, they’d get my vote.

  • Veal Parmigiana

    If anyone made a gluten-free cannoli, they’d be my favorite by default! One of the many things I miss…

    I find all the cannoli much too sweet for my taste. The cannoli cream is extremely easy to make. Just add confectioner’s sugar to ricotta cheese (to taste) and add a little pure vanilla extract. The cannoli shells are readily available online or in some Italian salumerias. After stuffing the shells, dust with powdered sugar. Of course, you can dip the ends in sprinkles, pistachios, pignoli, etc. Once you make them fresh, you won’t be buying them again. Believe me.

    Seriously Elegante on Ave U needed to be on this list.

  • Erin

    Grandma’s bakery on 13th Ave should be on this list.
