I haven't tried them myself, but the cannoli's at Luciano's look tasty. Since the family (owners) immigrated from Italy they might use a more authentic Italian recipe.

I'll be watching this post for the "best" canolli. Not being a cheese-lover, I've never actually eaten one, but it's time to try it. Come to think of it, if I recall correctly, Luciano's used to have a restaurant by another name next to the H-E-B on San Pedro and Jackson-Keller. Their tiramisu was especially good, so I'd expect the same of their canolli. Guess I'll be visiting Luciano's soon. :-)

I will say again, for the best old traditional recepies for Italian food in S.A. is Little Italy; actually owned and ran by Italians from the old world, not by middle easterners...
Not that there is anything wrong with middle easterners, but they do run a lot of Italian reataurants here in S.A.

Hi ggeorgie,

I last dined at Little Italy about 10 years ago. It had been quite awhile since I had eaten there, sadly I haven't returned because I was sorely disappointed by both the pasta-style dish (don't remember exactly what it was) that wasn't freshly prepared (probably sitting out all day), and an unclean atmosphere (dusty, soiled walls, cluttered). I presume that you still dine there so maybe you've never noticed, or perhaps overlooked it because you like the food. Maybe you're not bothered that sort of thing. Regardless, please comment on this restaurants cleanliness.

Sorry if this a bit off-topic, but I feel it's a related question because I may try their cannoli's. For what it's worth, I feel that Luciano's on Huebner is a bit cluttered too.

Giovanni's at 906 Brazos. It's near the corner of Brazos and Guadelupe. He is from Brooklyn, Italian decent and his deserts are all fabulous. Most he gets from New York or makes them himself. He makes the Cannolis right there.
