    I didn't think the cannoli was as amazing as everyone said it was...the best cannoli I've had is from Graffiato in Washington, D.C.

    Walk past any line and confirm that your selection is available and fresh. If so, get in line.

    Had the rum cake(?) and the napoleon. Unfortunately both cakes were too similar, same cream filling between wafers. I wish the person behind the counter had informed us before purchase.

    Come for the cannoli, leave with florentines, marzipan, jordan almonds, and sfogliatelle.

    Very busy at most hours, and a direct competitor to Mike's Pastry down the road. I personally get the ricotta pie and/or ricotta cookies during the holiday season!

    Canolli with chocolate chips. Yum! Seating inside of you want to stay instead of taking your order to go.

    In general I am not a fan of cannoli. It was ok but not worthy to do the line. Lobster tail was good.

    Cannoli are much fresher tab Mike's. Their other Italian pastries such as the French horn are worth a try as well. It's difficult to not be tempted by the cake display...
