Good italian in Phoenix/south scottsdale area?

      DeFalco's definitely has a cannoli, although I have to say, since my first cannoli was at Mike's Pastry (say what you will about Modern, it's Mike's for me), I wasn't so enthused. Slice of Sicily also has one. Andreoli has a variety of pastries, and the ones I've had I loved.

        Mike's for cannoli, Modern for lobstah tails. ;-)

          the ricotta pie is pretty darn good too.

        I can vouch for Andreoli's cannoli. They are good.
