When it comes to Italian food, unless you're going to Italy itself, no one does it better than New Jersey.

We have the best Italian markets, including places like Tuscany, and Uncle Guiseppe's, the best mozzarella, made in places like A and S Salumeria, the best meatballs, including the "Speciale" ones, the best Italian restaurants, and of course when it comes to pizza, you're not going to be better than the Garden State

Not only is New Jersey great with the meal and the prep but when it comes to dessert, we dominate that as well. From cannolis to pignoli cookies to tiramisu, which has a very salacious story behind it and everything in between.

If you're ever invited to dinner and want to bring something that will leave a delicious memory in all who attend, pick up dessert from one of these great Italian places as advised by my listener and social media following.

Conca D'Oro in Union NJ. Cannoli, Babà, chocolate biscotti. I could go on and on. Thank God I live like an hour away for there. There is no other place in NJ that comes close to them.
