BEST CANNOLI IN NORTHERN NEW JERSEY?
Since I could not find a previous posting, I'm offering this question to New Jersey Chowhounders, in your opinion, who makes the best cannoli in northern New Jersey?.
Our family favor the cannolis made by "PICCOLO'S GASTRONOMIA ITALIANO" which is a small family owned and managed Italian specialty shop located in Ridgefield. Just a sidebar... Luisa and Filomena (the wife and sister of owner Franco Piccolo) also bake a very respectable and totally authentic "Riccota Cheese Pie" and Franco's daily made mozzarella is also noteworthy. Here's a link to Piccolo's website::
We normally use Rispoli's miniature cannoli's as presents when we're invited for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner.
However, since you're obviously not that far away from Piccolo's on Bergen Blvd. and Edgewater Avenue in Ridgefield, I highly recommend that you sample their full-size cannoli. Zabar
Try the Mona Lisa Bakery in Little Ferry. Either the traditional shell or chocolate coated. Made to order.
