Where in Manhattan can I get great cannoli to go?

My friend would like to get some for a dinner party, but she wants really amazing ones. I know where to go in Bensonhurt (Villabate!) but we're trying to keep it local.

  1. Rocco's on Bleecker between 6th and 7th Aves. The best in Manhattan, as far as I'm concerned.

        Rocco's is excellent!
        And DeRobertis is also quite good. A lot of history in that place too.

    1. Bruno Bakery on La Guardia.

        1. No place in Manhattan has any great cannoli, in my experience. Rocco's was my favorite before their temporary closure (renovation?), but (a) I haven't been there since then and (b) they were way inferior to and simultaneously probably twice as expensive as Villabate, because of rent and tourist traffic. So you can take a qualified and attenuated recommendation of Rocco's for what it's worth, but if you're used to Villabate, I think you are likely to be disappointed.
