That's Amore Has Opened a Huge Factory Dedicated to Cannoli in Melbourne's North

And it's delivering to most of metropolitan Melbourne.

The first half of 2020 hasn't served up a whole lot of goodness, but for dessert-lovers, there's at least one sweet new addition. While much of Melbourne was in lockdown, the Cannoleria crew was busy whipping up its biggest creation yet: a dedicated cannoli factory.

Yep, the much-loved dessert producer has moved into spacious new digs at Heidelberg West, setting up shop a couple of suburbs away from sibling company That's Amore Cheese. And that means a whole lot more room — 500 square metres, to be exact — for the team to pump out those signature Sicilian sweet treats, featuring crunchy pastry tubes piped full of fresh ricotta.

As well as allowing Cannoleria to up production, the new factory site will allow for even more experimentation, which means there should be a stack of new cannoli flavours to come. There are also plans to open an onsite eatery later this year, which'll serve up lunches, coffee and, of course, plenty of that freshly-made cannoli.

The factory expansion comes as demand for Cannoleria's cult Italian treats continues to boom two years on from its debut, with people flocking to get their mitts on the all-natural, preservative-free desserts.

The group's already got four popular retail stores under its belt — at South Melbourne Market, Preston Market, Watergardens Shopping Centre and Highpoint Shopping Centre — in addition to regular pop-ups and a catering arm. And, the good news for those preparing to enter lockdown again, the Cannoleria is offering delivery to most of metropolitan Melbourne. You can order those ricotta-filled babies to your house by heading over here.

Cannoleria's new digs are located at 69 Sheehan Road, Heidelberg West. The onsite eatery is slated to open in spring 2020. You can order delivery over here.
