You had me at Cannoli.
If you haven’t had a chance to check out Artuso Pastry Shop’s new Cannoli Bar, then be sure to plan a trip soon! Available during store hours, guests are able to customize their cannoli and choose from a variety of shells (plain, powdered, or chocolate dipped), a delicious selection of creams (from the classic to pumpkin to peppermint and more), and finish it off with toppings such as pistachios, chocolate chips, coconut, syrup drizzles and more. Prices range between $4-$5 and cannoli cream cups are available too for $3.95 each.
