Cannolis in Southern Maine

Where can I find a *REAL* cannoli in the Portland area? I have been unable to find anything other than gross whipped cream filled cannolis.

  1. Miccuci's on India Street in Portland. Made by the former owner and baker of Sophia's. Completely authentic and flawless Italian breads and pastry although extremely limited in variety. I think he always has cannoli and sfogatelle right at the register.

        I had a sfogatelle at Miccuci's the other day and rate it as very good. This is a great but lesser known Italian pastry with a crisp crust and dry cheesy interior. Not the best I ever had, but certainly the best outside of a few NY places. I am on my way to Naples soon to find the ultimate sfogatelle .
