When we travel to NYC we always dine in Little Italy at least one night. We always plan to end the evening at Ferrara's for a sambucca and dessert. Our favorites include a variety of mini Italian sweets, including mini canoli's, Neapolitans, tiramisu, and cream puffs. This place is the best. Always a line for take out and great seating... More

YUM! We stopped into Ferrara's on our walk back to the hotel after dinner in Little Italy. It is Italian Heaven, with a ton of dessert and coffee options to choose from. My husband got salted caramel gelato and I ordered 2 mini chocolate cannolis. It was a great way to end the night (they're open late) and I would... More

A place to have good espresso with a great variety of pastries. The place could be very crowded. So lucky to have this place near our hotel. We went several times for cannoli, espresso, ice cream and much more. The only thing is that the cappuccino was not that tasty (not the right milk?) whilst the espresso was good.

A gem in little Italy. Worth the trip. It can be expensive. Make sure to eat it fresh the first day or it would be a waste.

Had an assortment of pastries for the family and everyone was glad we had room for dessert. When visiting little Italy make sure you stop here after dinner.

Ferrara has been in business for 100years. Everything is excellent whether you have Italian pastry, cookies or gelato. Prices are high. Service is usually not good. There are always lines whether you go in the morning or late at night.

During our trip to NYC last week, we made sure to run by Ferrara one evening. The choice of desserts is always a challenge, but as usual...I opted for the chocolate dunked cannoli. It never disappoints...the perfect dessert.
