Cannoli Made in Italy vs. America: The Key Distinction 

While Italian cuisine is vast and varied, there are very few foods that have inspired a famous film franchise. 

"Leave the gun; take the cannoli" is a famous line from "The Godfather" that many consider a classic line of dialogue.  

Furthermore, it demonstrates how ubiquitous and significant cannoli are in both Italian and Italian-American cuisine.  

However, there is a slight discrepancy between the Italian and Italian-American renditions of the rich dessert.

Cannoli are not only created in Italy, but also in the United States.

There are noticeable differences in flavor and texture between the Italian and Italian-American versions of cannoli since the Italian version uses sheep's milk and the Italian version uses cow's milk.
