With all the talk about pizza and Italian food in general on Staten Island, I'm surprised that I haven't really heard much about Italian pastry shops in the borough.
Specifically, I'm looking for places that offer fresh-filled (rather than pre-filled) cannoli. There don't seem to be that many places in the five boroughs that do this anymore, but I figure that SI has to have at least a few spots, being the Italian-American stronghold that it is.
Any recommendations? I'd also love to hear about other standout pastries/baked goods at these spots (e.g. cookies, sfogliatelle, cakes, etc) - you know, the house specialties.
Thanks in advance.
