Located in a strip mall off of County Line and Emerson, Cannoli Queen is a small, locally-owned Italian eat-in/carry-out order-at-the-counter situation. We were stoked to find they had a website and found it hard to narrow our choices. With our hectic work schedule, Fred did the carry-out option on his way home.
We eagerly anticipated Fred's arrival. Finally, he busted into the kitchen with a little Italian smorgasbord; lasagna with salad and bread, fried mozz and marinara, gabagool with Italian fries and marinara, spaghetti and meatballs & sausage with more salad and bread, and of course, cannoli's all around for dessert! Tums within reach, we dug in.

It was cannoli time and Fred slowly took the pastry box out of the paper bag. What a beautiful sight! Two chocolate and two originals that only seemed to differ in their shell. This was a first for the whole FLOE family. How to describe the cannoli? The cream was thick, with chocolate chips incorporated, not too sweet, but decadent. The shell was also thicker and denser than expected, but made sense with the subtle sweetness of the cream and tasted like a thick sugar cone without the sugar. Ozzy loved the filling, but balked at the slight flower coating left on the shells. They were definitly a nice dessert, but not sure if it would be chosen over any other sweet treat in the future.
Price-$$, About what you'd expect for an Italin take-out place.
Atmosphere-**, Again, what you'd expect for take-out. While they do offer a few tables, it seems like they're much more focused on the take-out side.
Service-***, Friendly & responsive.
Fred- B- -- I'm happy to have another take-out option in Greenwood, but other than the marinara, nothing was a straight up hit. We'll be back, but I wouldn't drive across town for it.
Libby- B- -- No interest in trying the gabagool again. It did nothing for me. But I will definitely be getting the sausage sandwich and trying some of the fried ravi. No fries, but definitely a side salad.
Ozzy- A- -- Kind of hard to go wrong with spaghetti & bread for the Oz.
Stella- A -- She grazed on a bit of everything with no complaints.
