    The cannoli are stellar.

    I got the cannoli with the chocolate-covered shell (I definitely recommend!), which I haven't seen anywhere else. They also fill with the cannoli with the filling on the spot, so it's fresh.

    Try the heavenly chocolate. It's chocolate Italian ice with espresso poured over it. It's all the flavor of a rich dessert drink, without the heaviness of dairy.
