    We like Termini's in RTM.

      Termini's is the best. In addition to RTM they also have a location in the Comcast Center (besides their South Philly and Jersey locations)

        Haven't had them in a while but l always preferred Isgro's as they filled them to order. Why Termini's better ?

          I have always preferred the Isgro's filling to Terminis (which I have found too sweet.). But to the best of my knowledge isn't Isgros only in the Italian Market? Are there any other outlets for them?

            Thought so as well, tough to buy a new neon rocket.

            I've heard multiple reports of Isgro's not filling cannolis to order recently. They still do it, but apparently not all the time. They do at Termini's. For a cannoli to be filled ahead of time is a crime.

              Termini's always fills to order. I haven't been to Isgros in a few years but last time I was there they were pre-filled.
