Whatever you do choose, the best part about enjoying dinner at Caffè dell’Amore is indulging in rich, Italian-style desserts like the Caffè dell’Amore Cannoli a Strati — or stacked cannoli. This dessert is an Italian pastry that originated in Sicily. It was originally prepared during the Carnevale season, and existed as a symbol of fertility. Today, while not as known for fertility, the tube-shaped pastry shell has made its way to the U.S., giving locals a taste of Italy without having to take the trip abroad. It is stacked, and filled with a rich and creamy amalgamation of sweetened ricotta cheese.
At Caffè dell’Amore, this pastry features multi-layered, freshly baked flat cannoli shells, with the same delectable sweetened ricotta cheese, and crushed pistachio nuts. The finished pastry is then drizzled with a bit of honey to add to its sweetness, and served to guests. At this authentic Italian restaurant, a little taste of heaven can also be a little taste of Italy itself! Stop by for a romantic dinner and a few stacked cannoli any night of the week!
