Nothing beats a bite of something sweet at the end of a delicious meal. In Italian cuisine, dessert is a celebrated end to a meal, with traditional Italian dessert recipes dating back centuries. Many of the most-well known Italian desserts are baked goods, including biscotti, limoncello cake, and panettone. For a rich, smoother option, Italian cuisine also boasts the beloved tiramisu, gelatos, and cannolis.
At Francesco Ristorante Italiano in Snoqualmie, Washington, we take pride in offering authentic Italian cuisine made with only the finest local ingredients. Aside from our pizza, pasta, and Italian fine dining options, we also offer several delicious Italian restaurant desserts on our menu.
Here are some of the most popular Italian desserts on our menu, all made from scratch in our kitchen:
Tiramisu: One of the most well-known Italian desserts, tiramisu is a decadent and delicate dessert with a strong coffee flavor. Our tiramisu is made with soft ladyfinger biscuits, sweet mascarpone, and marsala cream for a slight twist on this Italian classic.
Cannolo Siciliano: Cannoli are traditional Italian pastries crafted with tube-shaped dough that is fried and filled with many different sweet creams or custards. Our Cannolo Siciliano features a crisp cannoli shell stuffed with our special chocolate chip cream.
Limoncello Cake: Italian cuisine is known for many different types of specialty drinks, one of which is Limoncello. Limoncello is a sweet lemon liquor that hails from the Southern region of Italy. We incorporate the fresh lemon flavor into our Limoncello Cake by infusing it into our sponge cake recipe, layered with mascarpone cream and white chocolate.
Cannoli Scafazzati: Another delicious cannoli option, our Cannoli Scafazzati features crumbled cannoli shells with sweetened ricotta and a generous sprinkling of chocolate chips. This decadent dessert is an exciting and unique deconstructed version of the classic cannoli that will soon become one of your favorites.
