    Anyone know if there is a quick-service or bakery-type place in Italy in Epcot for a good cannoli? Or maybe Downtown Disney??

    Tutto Italia has them in the Kiosk.

    And..
    "Leave the gun. Take the Cannoli"

    Sorry couldn't resist the Godfather reference.

    I grew up in NY, and the first time I ordered a cannoli here in Minnesota, it was filled with whipped cream and not cheese. Ick!

    The cannoli from Tutto Italia are pretty good. Not great, but good.

    My New York family refuses to eat any italian outside of New York. It took some convincing before they agreed to a restaurant in Boston. They loved it. But We avoid it llike thplaugue in WDW.

    That phrase is uttered with startling regularity in my house. :rotfl: And the cannoli at Tutto Italia are....adequate. If you need a fix or you've lived too far from any decent cannoli in recent memory, then go for it. But they are not my Nona's cannoli...that's for sure. LOL

    If you're looking for really good cannoli, fuhgeddabout it. But they do have half decent ones, and when the Via Napoli window is open they have been sellling them there.

    Anyone who is called Nona, by definition makes great canolis and "gravy" too, (that's "sauce" to all of you not familiar with the lingo of a wonderful Italian grandmother.

    Wow! I've never heard anyone outside of the small Italian town I grew up call it "gravy" :rotfl: Everyone always looks at me like I'm crazy when I say that! Good to know we aren't the only ones! :lmao:

    Yes, we only eat gravy in my house. I grew up in Delaware, but have since moved out west. Imagine the looks of shock and horror on the faces of my Rocky Mountain friends when I tell them they're having gravy and macaroni for dinner. :scared1: I can't resist saying it. :lmao:
