"What inspired you to start a cannoli shop?" is a question Steve Del Gardo is asked often. With a dream and a desire to bring something to Northern Kentucky that's never been done before, Del Gardo's Cannoli Bar was born. 

Steve's passion for creating cannoli can be seen and felt throughout the modern, yet intimate space located in the heart of Covington, KY. ​We have over 200 cannoli flavors in our vault as well as several tiramisu flavors. Del Gardo's Cannoli Bar is Covington's first and only dessert destination. 


Featuring idyllic images of the Italian coast and graffiti art from local graffiti artist, KAOS, Del Gardo's Cannoli Bar is a refreshing take on what dessert can and should be.  

 Steve and his wonderful staff make every person who walks through the door feel like family. Often taking the time to sit down and chat with each person that walks in, you'll leave with more than just a full stomach but a full heart as well. 


Come see our new location on 621 Madison Ave in November 2023. It will be a new vibe with standard flavors and open 5 nights per week. Details coming soon....
