We were on a tour of Soho-Little Italy- Chinatown. Our guide recommended this place for it's cannolis and we had a gelato. The gelato was ok... not that great. And the cannoli was not very good. Don't think we'd revisit.

Ok, I just want to take the whole pastry case home with me. I've never had anything bad her. Their cannolis and gelato are so amazing! I always visit here when in town.

The gelato is good, but I was expecting more. There is no charm left at the place. It was a little disapointing...

Well sometimes you can judge a review by its title! This quaint little place on Grand Street in Little Italy is one of those rare gems that you try so hard to find and when you find it, you never want to leave. I grew up in a family of Italian bakers and chefs and this is cafe has some... More

Me and my wife got gelato here for walking with. I had Nutella and my wife Vanilla. Both were great. The cakes and bakes also looked amazing.

My friend and I visited Ferrara Bakery for lunch and a book signing. The pizzettes and desserts were delicious, but what made this Little Italy landmark even more enjoyable were the people! We were lucky enough to meet Mr. Ernest Lepore, and he was so generous with his time and food to tell us more about the bakery. He has... More

My family and I visited Little Italy on a short weekend holiday, and we returned to Ferrara's after ten years of being away from the city. Absolutely no regrets, italian pastries, cookies, coffee, to delight the most difficult palate. I hope they never close. So much of Little Italy is gone.

Go now & get the cannoli!! I had the chocolate covered one. It was amazing!! It's probably a good thing I was only visiting for a short period of time.

Having traveled to Italia several times, I must admit, getting good quality pastries here in NYC is a treat. They do it right. PERIOD. Everything looks beautiful and tastes better.

This place has a great big display case of amazing looking pastries. So many to choose from but the cannolis are amazing. They have mini sizes of most of the pastries which makes trying them all a bit easier. Priced really well.
