So many choices!!! They all looked great. I have Celiac so I got the gf cannoli and a gf cookie. Both were great. They keep the gf cannoli shells in a separate container and only fill after ordering. For gf the only option for filling is ricotta cheese- it was great!
Absolutely delicious GF cannoli, just like I remembered from years ago in North Boston! Was told that the bakery owner has celiac and makes all gluten free items personally so insure no contamination. Clerk said the owner eats these herself, as proof of her confidence: but of course she would because they are just wonderful. I also bought a lemon poppyseed muffin (which feels soft and moist) that I’m looking forward to for tomorrow’s breakfast!
Over rated in my opinion. The GF cannoli was $6, so I opted for the moon pie (the only other option I believe). It was brought out in a plastic bag on a plate, -- very unappealing. It was somewhat dry and seemed to smell like insecticide. Blech. There were many things like the nougat and other confections that could easily have been GF, but alas, there wasn't much to choose from. I would recommend going to the Thinking Cup a few doors down, instead, which was tasty, reasonably priced, and had a much better atmosphere.
I haven’t had a cannoli in almost 4 years. It was so good to have a crunchy sweet shell and still be given the option of what filling and toppings I would like on it. I got a class cannoli with traditional ricotta filling and chocolate chips, and it was delicious! Highly recommend😋
Desserts are kept separately and wrapped. Here you will find Whoopie Pies, cookies and yes, cannoli. The ricotta filling is gf and is honestly the best anyway. Server immediately put on gloves and packaged the treats separated from their gluten counterparts. My son is eleven, we’ve been there several times and have never been glutened. Be ready for a line— this place is popular!
I went back twice while visiting in Boston for the GF cannoli. They keep the shells in a separate jar to prevent cross contamination, and then fill them to order. Sweet, creamy, crispy deliciousness! There were a couple of other “safe” treats individually wrapped and kept separate from the other bakery items. Worth the stop!
My 10 year old son (celiac) was able to have his 1st Canoli! He loved it. My 7 year old son (celiac) got a gluten free Whoopi pie. They both LOVED their dessert. 2 gf canoli, 1 gf Whoopi pie, 1 chocolate pb egg (not gf) $19. Well worth it for my kids to feel like everyone else! No reactions from either boy who are both celiac and very sensitive.
Cannolis were amazing. They were very knowledgeable about celiac. They said they are always working on new gf products. Everything was amazing. They have non-celiac employees try the products to make sure they taste as good as the non-gf products. They were amazing.
I LOVE their gluten free cannoli, which are made off-site by the owner's daughter so as not to cross contaminate. The gluten free products are stored separately in a clearly labeled case. The only other gluten free item I have tried there was a lemon poppy seed muffin which was delicious. Also they have excellent iced cappuccino.
I have celiac and had no reaction the 3 times I’ve been. So amazing to have a cannoli again. Baked goods were a main concern when I was diagnosed. Be sure to tell them you have celiac when they pipe the cannolis. Also there’s a risk of contamination so ask for fresh toppings!
The cannolie was excellent but very small. I was happy to even have a gluten free option so I was thrilled. As the comments stated above, not many choices. Also, thank goodness I double-checked ( as I always do), that it was gluten free... she must not have heard me and I almost bought a regular one. She immediately corrected the mistake. 3 stars because there were only 2 choices.
Gluten free cannoli! Duh you have to come here. Only the ricotta and chocolate chips are gluten free friendly options for toppings. The pistachios and almonds are not GF. They have the gluten free items on the counter near the main registers separate from everything else. Delicious!
Limited GF options--thus a 2 star overall rating. Had their ricotta cannoli. It was ok, I'd say 3 stars. But I am not much of a cannoli person. However, Modern Pastry's cannoli is better than the cannolis I've had at other places (Mike's pastry, included). Would I have it again? Yes.
