Good Cannoli?

Is there such a thing as good cannoli in Los Angeles? Nicolosi's closed...

    Try Claro's Market. They'll make them fresh for you when you order or you can buy the shells to make some at home. They have locations throughout LA County.

      I like the cannoli at Porta Via in Pasadena. However, I think that's the only place I've had one (at least since I was a little kid), so I have no idea whether it's truly a "good" cannoli. They stuff them to order.

        THEY ARE EASY TO MAKE! Get some good quality shells from a deli. Mix ricotta, powdered sugar, vanilla, lemon zest, and chocolate, a small amount of cream in a food processor. Stuff shells and enjoy!

          If Nicolosi's was good to you, you should definitely try Monte Carlo in Burbank. Most of their stuff comes in from Eagle Rock Italian Bakery, but the cannoli are made in-house.

            I have no idea what constitutes a "good" cannoli, so sorry in advance if I give you a bad recommendation, but I had a TERRIFIC cannoli from Monte Carlo, on Magnolia in Burbank.
