Who makes a good or great one. I don't want a large one.

      I'm really not a fan. Their cannoli taste like Rich's topping, not ricotta.

          Scano's has been closed for years. The former East side grill and Cafe Manzi's opened where Scano's was on Shrewsbury St. I second Wholly cannoli. Have you tasted their rum cake?One of the best Italian rum cakes I tasted in a long time. All the all old time Italians like it too including my mom and my aunts . You might want to try Cafe Palma's in the same area in Rice sq. Own now by Albanians but still good Italian pastries.

    2. Wegmans had one advertised in the flyer, I am sure it is not the best tasting . Maybe try Gerardo's in West Boylston.
