Take the Cannoli

By: Chloe Castleberry

FLORENCE, Italy—I was lucky enough to go to Trattoria Il Porcospino, which literally translates to the porcupine, on the day when the torta del giorno, also known as dessert of the day, was cannoli: two delectable chocolate cannoli shells with creamy ricotta filling and fresh fruit bits, topped with powdered sugar. The restaurant, located at Piazza Madonna degli Aldobrandini, also served an amazing Bolognese pasta, but it was the cannoli, the service and the ambiance that really made the experience. Don’t be turned away from the strange name or the even stranger porcupine stuffed animal sitting in the menu window. Give this place a chance, but most importantly, take the cannoli.
