  1. Old World Deli in West Covina and Upland. If you call in advance, they'll make them for you. You might want to try the Claro's Italian Market, too. Locations throughout southern California.

      EXCELLENT. I''m going to check out the Old World Del in West Covina as well as the Claro's in West Covina. Thanks a million for the tip!

    2. Monte Carlo Deli in Burbank; Claro's (best location is the one in San Gabriel). There was some place in Northeast LA that sold them cheap too -- do a search for "cannoli" and you should come up with it.

      1. Claro's definitely has them, I've bought them there before. The filling is very easy to make, just sweeten some fresh ricotta to taste with powdered sugar, and add things like tiny chocolate chips or the candied fruit if you must. I like chopped almonds and tiny chocolate chips. Then just pipe or spoon into the shells.

        1. Not sure of the name but they have shells and filling

            Eagle Rock Italian bakery also sells cannoli already assembled.

              That's the place I meant -- Tutto Latte. They sell them in multiples of 40, I think, with the filling in tubs.

                They used to have the filling in a plastic piping bag, hummmm, a tub, interesting. I think the changed the name, but I drove by yesterday and they are still there.
