Cannolissimo is located in a store front where you walk up and tell the server what you want from the sidewalk and they will build it for you. My wife and I both went there and had cannoli's. You first pick the shell, then the filling and finally the toppings you want on your cannoli. You can get your cannoli loaded with 1/2 of one filling and 1/2 of another, along with separate toppings on both sides.

I ordered a shell with white chocolate and the traditional cannoli ricotta filling and chocolate chip sprinkled on 1/2 and the other 1/2 was sprinkled with pistachio's. It was very fresh and very rich, something I can only have once in awhile. It was delicious and filling. They were both very large in size and tough to eat without making a mess.

My wife ordered the white chocolate shell with ice cream filling instead of the ricotta since she doesn't like ricotta. And had sprinkles on it. Hers was very good too, but messy due to the rapidly melting ice cream. It was a hot evening in Palermo when we were there.

They do not have napkins and can only offer you the paper they wrap the cannoli with, which wasn't great for cleaning up after a messing/melting cannoli. They would have gotten 5 stars from us if they offered something better.

The staff was friendly and very accommodating and explained everything to us. There are a couple tables in front of the building where you can enjoy your delicious treat. Also, there were no trash cans to throw your paper away. I had to hand it to one of the girls behind the counter.

With all the street food offered and delicious treats, Palermo is lacking an abundance of trash cans on their city streets.

Overall, I would recommend Cannolissimo to anyone looking for an amazing cannoli and something traditional in Palermo for dessert.

If you are in need of cannoli and there is only one you will need in this town. The soft side of what ever flavour you choose will guide you to the heavens or through space and time. That is all I can say.

The cannoli are fresh and delicious. You can choose between different varieties of ricotta or ice cream. One cannoli is about 2,50€, very cheap!

Loved the idea of making my own cannoli! I went with standard but what I ate was fresh and delightful. Highly recommend.
