In general, it’s usually safe to assume that where there’s good pizza, there’ll be good cannolis for dessert. The fan-favorite Juliana’s Pizza in DUMBO sets this rule with its Carol’s Cannoli, a housemade confection featuring a bow tie-shaped shell and silky ricotta served with a traditional spoon.

Villabate Alba

Dessert Shop, Italian, $$$
Save to wishlist
Cannoli connoisseurs will be impressed by Villabate Alba, a family-owned and operated kitchen importing their ricotta all the way from Sicily’s Palermo, the birthplace of the modern cannoli. Here, cannolis taste the way they were intended to: grassy, nutty, and sweetened only by a lone maraschino cherry and a strip of candied orange peel.

When you’re craving authentic pleasure, not recipes, there’s Gelso and Grand. This Little Italy local was founded to push the historic neighborhood’s boundaries. Judging by its Unicornolli, a waffle cone shell filled with lavender-berry cream and topped with edible gold dust and miniature macarons, we’d say it’s succeeded.
