Every trip to Philly requires a stop here. My wife and daughter wouldn't let me back in the house with out a full box of cannoli. This place is out of a time warp from the sixties. If you are in the neighborhood (say within 50 miles of the city), you should swing by and pick some up.

Authentic Italian-American bakery with a great variety of sweets. Custom cakes like Italian cream and carrot cake. Croissants are amazing... and coupled with an espresso, latte or cappuccino can't be beat. Cafe seating & ATM. Family owned and you are treated like family.

This is our go to spot for cannoli's after a dinner in South Philly. Lots of variety and all are good. My favorite are the traditional chocolate chip but my husband likes the chocolate dipped which have a lighter cream filling. The cookies are just what you would expect at a traditional bakery - sprinkles and pignola all around.

Every time I come to Philly, I have to stop here to pick up a box of cannoli's. It is a wonderful throwback bakery. Make sure try the chocolate cannoli (my wife and mom's favorite).

Stopped by this place after looking at the King of Cannoli on 9st and this place was excellent at half the price! My wife lived in Italy for awhile and she loved these cannoli's.

I tried their cannoli, it had a bad after taste to it. My kids had similar opinion about theirs. We tried other pastries, it was not very good either. The place looks very nice and customer service is OK.

Walking in to Varallo's is like walking in to the bakery of your childhood. Big glass cases full of mouth watering treats, small tables and chairs and a super friendly woman behind the counter to answer all your questions. We can personally attest that the cannoli, cherry cheesecake and Italian cookies are wonderful. The big selection will keep you busy... More
