Wholly Cannoli in Worcester-
They have chocolate-dipped peanut butter cannolis that are TO DIE FOR! And the pistachio cannolis and cherry cannolis are fantastic as well. but the best thing is the "dynamite stick," such an amazing and indescribable pastry that they had to patent it!

Mike's is definitely the best, but Maria's is a close second.

Maria's. Though, nobody in North End has cannoli with real fresh ricotta.

Bova bakery in the north end. Open 24 hours. Almost never a line because it's tucked deep in there. So tasty. Not only cannoli too.

As an Italian-American ex-New Yorker who lived in the North End for six years, I feel slightly embarrassed to admit this, but Mike's Pastry's florentine cannoli is the best!

Gotta go with Modern, with Maria's just behind. Maria's shell with Modern ricotta would win hands down.

Mikes....because I love cannolis that are prefilled and waiting in a long line with people who refer to Boston as Beantown. My real vote would be for Maria's.

The best are up for debate, but Mike's frozen, pre-filled garbage isn't even a contender. Modern is good.
