The best Espresso

The service is great at this old style bakery and espresso bar, it is located in little italy in grand street, just two blocks from Canal street and Chinatown. The espresso was delicious, it was served at the right temperature and amount. Hope everybody got the chance to get to this place.

This place is a dream for people like me who love cakes and sweet food! The counter has rows upon rows of beautifully presented delicious looking cakes - there are almost too many to choose from. In the end, I chose the cheesecake - it was amazing! The location is great as well with Chinatown and Soho nearby so there's... More

What's nice about this place is the desserts are on the sidewalk so all you need do is walk up order what you want and you got it. Very tasty cannoli.

After a walk through Little Italy, we decided to end the evening with dessert at Ferrara's. I think there are actually 2 shops that are connected to this store. There is another shop with the same name on Mulberry near Canal Street. The bakery and café is a very large, bright restaurant style café. You can order at the counter... More

Delicious desserts!! Definitely worth the calories you gain on this visit! Cheesecake and rainbow cookies are yummy. You should definitely visit when in LES, the atmosphere is pick up and go, even though they have seats

Took a chance and stopped here on our visit to the city. The desserts were delicious it was worth stopping in. Staff was disappointing, they were very slow and inattentive. We had to wait until they came out of the back room to get our check. Next time will try the take out.

Just stopped in to get a few pastries to take back to the hotel, and a couple one night and a couple there next night and they were wonderful. Will definitely go back to the place and actually sit down and try something.

My daughter and I were bouncing around Little Italy before we flew out and we came across this place! I am glad we did! My daughter got some cookies, a tri colored treat and sampled the chocolate covered pretzels (which were delightful), but the real take home here was the chocolate canolli. OMG! Delish. I could have eaten several! As... More

Staying in Little Italy

Neighborhood Profile
Little Italy
While Little Italy is one of the city's smallest neighbourhoods, its streets are packed with visitors from around the globe, especially on summer weekends when the streets are closed to traffic. Stroll up Mulberry Street, the heart of Little Italy, for a dense mix of Italian restaurants with sidewalk tables, cafes, and old-school food shops. Don’t be surprised when the hosts beckon you to pay them a visit. Stop in for a coffee and a cannoli, or grab a streetside table to take in the scenery over a hearty Italian meal.
