Genuine Cassata Siciliana In the UK?

Where in the London and South Home Counties Area is there either a restaurant where I can eat this delicious dessert or a deli where I can buy one? It must be made in Sicily. I have just returned from Sicily where I ate it for the very first time. When I ordered it I expected to get an ice cream with bits of glace fruit in it. Instead, I got a cake to die for. It is a round cake with sloping sides enclosing ricotta with chocolate chips and lemon soaked in liqueur with green and white stripes of marzipan on the outside and icing, finally the glace fruits of sicily in gorgeous colours are arranged in interesting shapes and patterns on the top. Yummy! It can be ordered direct from Italy on the internet (34 euros for 1kg of cake including shipping), but it would be cheaper and simpler to buy it here ....
