Where to buy cannoli (traditional Italian sweet) in Sao Paulo

Cannoli is a sweet fried, prepared in a cylindrical shape and stuffed with ricotta cream originated in the Italian region of Sicily. I found a really cool post on the blog Curiocidade, which recommends eight places in town where you can find this traditional Italian dessert and want to share with you. Here we go:

Cannoli of Flavio Federico Dolci

Where: Juventus Stadium - Rua Javari, 117 - Mooca
What's up: This is undoubtedly the best place to try the authentic Cannoli here in São Paulo. This is the address of the traditional stadium of the italo/paulista soccer team Juventus of São Paulo. The cannoli are prepared by Antonio Garcia and are only sold during the halftime of the games. Unfortunately, Antonio do not sell his cannoli anywhere else in town. The problem is that Juventus does not last much on championships. On 2012, it starts on January 29.
