  1. Please don't yell.

    Also, Alati in Saint-Leonard has better cannoli.

      i was so excited when i got home from JT/Little Italy yesterday afternoon I had to declare my love for their cannolis around the world. I am from New Jersey / Brooklyn originally so I KNOW good cannolis.

      1. re: SnackHappy

        seconded.... alati in St Leonard are far superior

      2. Just went to Alati Caserta, and cannolis are half price for the entire month of november, so they are 1.25$, which is a fantastic price for them.

        1. Lemon cookies, lemon cookies, lemon cookies, lemon cookies....

          1. I will have to disagree with the "best in town" title, even though Alati-Caserta's ricotta cannolis are very good... A few years ago, we held a contest (bought fresh cannolis from both places), and Roma's (6776 St-Laurent) cannolis were definite winners. We still go to Alati for their deliciously moist almond cake (they even sell it by the slice).

            1. It's november again, and Alati-Caserta have their cannolis at half price for the entire month. Went by today and they had the normal ricotta ones, plus pistachio flavored, chocolate, crema (custard) and a new tiramisu flavour. Tasted that one and it was pretty good. If I remember correctly, they only have the ricotta flavour during weekdays, but have the other types on week-end.

                half price?!? oh man! didn't know, thanks!

                1. re: twinkie83

                  i must have been unlucky. of the 6 i got, only 2 were great (ricotta and pistachio) and the other 4 were a bit soggy including the 2nd pistachio i got

                2. re: NickinMtl

                  Thanks, that is a wonderful deal. Perhaps the ones in Saint-LĂ©onard are better still, but though it isn't terribly far from where I live even by bicycle, Alati-Caserta is a few minutes' walk - even if it snows.

                  I prefer the old-school ricotta ones, though pistachios would be nice.

                    I also forgot to mention there is a deal on italian cake and tiramisu. (20$ each)
