Walking toward the Cannoli Counter at Eataly Boston in
Boston, Mass., begs the
question: Why didn't anyone think of this before? And having to
choose amongst the vast variety of cannolis at this gem formally called
Cannoli di Eataly -- and then eating one or more of them -- prompts
another profound thought: Sweet dreams do come true.
Many people happily take the advice of the sign above the Cannoli Counter stating, "You cannoli live once,"
While it's a challenge to choose amongst the four restaurants, more
than 10,000 Italian products, several to-go counters and wine
selections at Eataly
Boston, many visitors tend to make things simpler
for themselves by first
choosing the Cannoli Counter at Eataly. Apprently, it's OK to have your
dessert before a meal if following the crowds here.
Located at the bottom
floor of the Boylston St. entrance, the Cannoli Counter staff makes
cannolis while you are waiting -- no sights of any pre-made stuff here
and offers options to buy individual cannolis, or four or eight packs.
They even offer a "Cannoli DIY Travel Pack," a build-your-own cannoli
kit consisting of six cannoli shells, one pastry bag of ricotta filling
and three toppings for dipping.
Start with a classic shell or chocolate dipped shell, then fill it up
with plain riccotta or pistachios or dark chocolate chips, consider
adding one of 10 toppings (or a mix of them), and the final
product tastes delicious and as good, if not better, as anything you'd
find in the
legendary North End of Boston.

But wait, that's not all. For those 21 and over, the phrase "When
in Sicily, do as the Sicilians do, (OK, I know the phrase really starts
with "Rome") also applies to Boston as the Cannoli Counter offers a
cannoli and wine pairing. Additionally the Cannoli Speciale -- a glass
of Marsala dessert wine paired with a classic cannolo -- comes in at
under $10, at this writing. This might be the most obvious statement in
the history of the world -- and this coming from a non-drinker -- but
this pairing would be far better than a glass of Boone's
Farm with a Twinkie!
File the Cannoli Counter at Eataly Boston under "Brilliant Idea." Few
Boston attractions are as sweet as this meeting place for lovers of
Eately Boston is located at 800 Boylston St., Boston MA. Tel. (617)
