Bottone Cannoli

Artisanal cannoli as you've never tasted them

The first thing you notice coming to Bottone is how much the place looks like a jewelery. The mirrors, the shiny metal and the geometry of shelves, the sparkling display in the center where, instead of colliers and diamonds, the real jewels are artisanal cannoli.

Bottone Cannoli | Ingresso

Cannoli with ricotta is the cornerstone of Sicilian pastry art, a dessert we know well by now. Its origins are ancient: seventy years BC Cicero defined cannoli “a very sweet food”. Then legends overlap: there are those who see it as invented, in its modern version, by concubines of the Sicilian emir in the region of Caltanissetta; there are those, however, who attribute its invention to a group of nuns of a cloistered convent who wanted a dessert during Carnival time.

Bottone Cannoli | Esposizione

Whichever way it was, cannoli made its way to the world, so much, indeed, that it also came to our beautiful Milan, fresh and tasty as if a pastry shop in the South had just finished making it. And what is Bottone if not twenty-five square meters of Sicily in Milan? It is from there, in fact, that all the ingredients of these amazing cannoli are coming from.

Bottone Cannoli | Preparazione

First of all, the fresh ricotta produced exclusively with cow’s milk from the Hyblaean Mountains and available in a variety of flavors: hazelnut, cocoa and Bronte pistachio. Secondly, the cannoli shells made separately following an original recipe with Ganaceto’s organic flour, pure lard and the Nero d’Avola wine. Not to forget the candied orange zest decorating cannoli on the ends. Every cannoli is hand-made one by one, sealed with a red sugar seal, the unmistakable mark of the Bottone company.

Bottone Cannoli | Sedute

The best of the best, however, is in the kits you can buy, including everything necessary so that, once at home, you can fill your cannoli with an included sac-à-poche. Cannoli is difficult to preserve when filled because the crispness of the waffle is essential to enjoy it, and ricotta, if left inside for long, ends up softening it. By filling it on your own you are taking the matter into your own hands, and also have the pleasure of giving your friends a cannoli that you have filled and garnished on your own. A great idea for an original dessert.

Bottone Cannoli | Take Away Kit

If you are just passing by and feel like having something sweet on the go with a cup of good espresso, Bottone gives you a choice of big and small cannoli. The smaller ones are perfect for a quick snack; the larger ones, on the other hand, are ideal to finish a meal.

You can order them from Bottone’s e-commerce or with immediate delivery on UberEATS.

We can't. That's why every week we share the best experiences
Milan has to offer.
