Where can I get cannoli shells in Toronto?

So I've been buying my cannoli shells across the border and smuggling a few boxes in once in a while; they are made in the US but tasted like the type I had in Italy (the Sicilian variety). I'm wondering if anyone knows where I can get cannoli shells in Toronto? I enjoy process of filling cannoli with pistachio flavoured ricotta but I can't seem to find them anywhere! Thanks!!

  1. I'd go to your favourite Italian bakery and ask them to sell you unfilled shells. San Remo, La Rose and St. Phillips are all excellent. I'm sure there are other options downtown, but I can't think of any off the top of my head.

    Some links:

      I know you can buy them at Continental Noodle at Jane and Lawrence. Pasta Goodness on Marlee, south of Glencairn is a branch of Continental Noodle but with less inventory. If the latter location is closer to you I am certain they would bring them in from the original source.

    2. Cheese Boutique might have them. They have a huge selection of pasta

        Cannoli are deep-fried pastry shells. Cannelloni are noodles. ;}

          Yes... I mean cannoli, the pastry :)

            I've picked them up from Italian bakeries in the west end and Mississauga but they seem to be fairly common. Most of the ones I've bought are imported.

        2. I would call Lady York, they may have them. I will look the next time I am there.
