Sent from the Island of Sicily, two pastry chefs Salvo and Rosella Romeo have partnered up with Maria and Sonny Hewson to create Italian and Silican treats for all to enjoy. Located at 4703 SW 16th Place in Cape Coral, just north of Cape Coral Parkway is Cannoli Italian Market & Bakery.
Pastries are made fresh daily with more than 30 different cookie varieties flavored with almond flour such as linzer tarts, pignoli, assorted butter and sugar cookies filled with jam or dipped in chocolate and dusted with nuts.
Cannolis come in a variety of flavors: traditional, chocolate chip, hazelnut, pistachio, strawberry and chocolate. Share a cream filled zabaione filled tart topped with fresh strawberries and blueberries outside or inside. This little spot also makes wonderful coffees from lattes to expresso.
Stock up on fresh made tuna salad, sliced cut meats, olive salad, submarine sandwiches made-to-order, calzones, variety of pizza by the slice, baked bread. Add to your order a nice bottle of wine, olive oil, balsamic vinegar or ingredients to make your own sauce and pasta at home.
At lunchtime, check out $10 sub sandwich special which includes a cannoli and drink. Kids get a free cookie with every visit.
