Cannoli in the East Bay?
Once in a while, I get an incredible hankering for some good cannoli. I'd love to find some that I could bring home (perhaps from a bakery), but restaurant suggestions are good too. We're in Alameda, but willing to travel a bit. And where are your favorite cannoli in the city, in case we decide to venture westward?
I have had the cannoli at Delfina Pizzeria and thought it was quite good.

The Gioia cannoli are good, but a bit pricy. You could get 1.5 slices for the same dough. It would be worth a trip to San Mateo to go to Romolo's. You can even get a kit there and make them yourself at home.
To quote B. Kirby in the 70's teen movie Almost Summer, "Cannoli and amaretto. The good life!"
Genova Delicatessen in Oakland has cannoli. Haven't tried one from there for awhile though.
Also, not East Bay but If you're around San Mateo, Romolo's Cannoli & Spumoni Factory has some really good cannoli that they make to order.
