Vero Moderno, Unit 4 Vimto Gardens, Salford, M3 5JF – Visit Now
Vero Moderno itself is a simple space with an inviting menu and a purported modern twist on classic Italian dishes. It’s still welcoming enough to drop in for just a coffee and a snack rather than a full meal though, and for those with a sweet-tooth I’m pleased to say that the trio of cannoli offer a reliably traditional take on the dessert.
Vero Moderno’s cannoli are part of its dessert menu rather than a standalone item. With that in mind it’s on the more expensive side at £4.50, but you do get three colours (though not red, white and green) in the form of chocolate, lemon and a pistachio dusted sweet ricotta. The star of this plate is the lemon flavour, which is sweet and tart and, against the much thicker biscuit-like casing, tastes almost exactly like a Lemon Puff – a description which I hope recommends itself.
