Federal Hill section of Providence with a friend. Before heading home, however, I had to make a quick stop into Scialo Bros. Bakery to pick up some real* cannolis for my husband and I.
(*Note that the reviews on Yelp claiming that the cannolis are stale or not "real" are from people who have never had a real canolli. These are made with ricotta, but, are whipped up light and do not have the consistency of wall putty like many ricotta cannolis. Nor are they filled with custard or whipped creme which is certainly not a real cannoli. The pastry is light and flaky and not overly sugared, as it should be. They add a sprinkling of chocolate chips at one end and nuts at the other which is in keeping with traditional preparation and adds a bit of texture and taste as well. Do not believe those who do not know what they are talking about!)
