Canolis in Bay Ridge?
I'm fairly new to Bay Ridge and haven't had a bad slice of pizza yet, but where are all the good canolis? I grew up on the Lower East Side so had my pick in Little Italy and I am craving a crispy one!
Try 18th Ave Bakery (near 63rd St, I guess that is New Utrecht or something but it's in the vicinity of Bay Ridge).
By the way, cannoli is plural. One cannolo. Two cannoli.
You'll be better off in neighboring Bensonhurst. If it's still there, Rispoli on NU Ave and about 73rd St had great cannoli. (They also make the world's best homemade Italian Ices.)
For really fresh and crispy cannoli I like Angelo's on 86th St and 25th Ave,
I believe both bakeries have chocolate and vanilla.
If you go to Angelo's treat yourself to a french cream filled "Lobster Tail"..
They are beyond delicious.

I'm not saying it's incorrrect but I have never heard anyone refer to one cannoli as a 'cannolo'. If you order, (especially in Bensonhurst/Bay Beach.) I would suggest you use "cannoli" or they'll look at you funny :-} Try to go when it isn't humid.
It's hard to get crispy cannoli when it's damp.
BTW... I'm impressed that you spelled 'New Utrecht' correctly. I never get it right, hence my NU abbreviation, lol!
all the bakeries listed here serve up tremendous cannoli. i'd like to suggest rimini pasticceria on 68th and bay parkway. everyone should look forward to the grand re-opening of Alba on 18th ave later this yr, as the cannoli there should be amazing in their brand new all imported from italia caffe.
