Can cannolis be brunch?

Nutella Flavored? Yes, Please.

Still on the hunt of finding a delicious cannolo, I venture into La Cannoleria Siciliana. The small Sicilian bakery is nearly 100 meters from the Spanish Steps. Outside of the small store a teenage girl has her mom take a picture of her with the storefront in the background for the Instagram likes. The inside smells of fried dough and chocolate. Six different flavors of cannoli are displayed right when I walk into the warm, cozy atmosphere.

So many flavors to try at La Cannoleria Siciliana. The Nutella one is the third cannolo from the left.

As a person who can eat an entire giant jar of Nutella in a day, their Nutella flavor is the first to catch my eye. I knew I couldn’t leave the shop without trying it.  Nutella was mixed in with the sheep ricotta, which gave the normally tangy sheep ricotta a sweet and nutty flavor.

The cannoli at La Cannoleria Siciliana had a delicious, tangy filling, but the shell wasn’t perfect. There has to be a shop in Italy that has a perfect cannolo.
