Where is the best Canolli in Chicago?

There has to be a good Italian bakery in Chicago somewhere that has great canolli.

  1. While I don't live in Chicago, a special friend does and he says he would drive out of his way for cannoli from "Original" Ferrara Bakery, Inc. on Taylor St. in Italian town.

    Their website says they've been around since 1908.

    1. I don't know if it's the 'best,' but I had some fantastic cannolis at Rosebud on Rush. Probably the best i've ever had.

      1. I had some pretty darned good cannoli at Cafe Spiaggia a few years ago.

        1. Hands down, you're going to find the best canolli at Sicilia Bakery. And get a few pieces of their homemade pizza for the ride home. Bet you'll eat it cold.

            I second the rec for Sicilia. Don't forget to get an assortment of cookies while you are there. Or even better a canolli cake to go along with your canolli's.

          2. The cannoli, and much else, at La Scarola, 721 W. Grand, is always delish.
