We just stumbled into this Bakery as we explored Little Italy for the first time. Then I realized I had read about this special place in our Lonely Planet NYC tour book. My husband ordered a double espresso, a Perroni beer, and the best homemade spumoni ice cream we have ever had! I enjoyed a cappuccino gelato with Bailey's -too... More

We actually settled for a mini trio of desserts ... because they all looked so good. The cappuccino is AMAZING!!!! Very neat environment - bustling with people and energy. We were seated immediately and served quickly.

My wife bakes all the time, but the baked goods here are worth a trip from anywhere. They've been around for over a century and for good reason. Their goods are baked fresh daily and have extraordinary flavor and freshness. If you are anywhere near Chinatown or Little Italy stop in for treats and you will not be disappointed.

My husband and I visited this morning for a simple quick breakfast. Warm and friendly atmosphere and very clean and inviting. We both shared a breakfast sandwich, which was delicious. The coffee was outstanding! After sitting and chatting for a bit, my husband opted for a small gelato, which he loved, and I picked up some mini pasteries to go.... More

I read the reviews so we had to check it out. We got the cheesecake, cannolis, cream puffs, eclairs and everything was amazing. The line was huge but it moved really fast. The people were very friendly.

I have a sweet tooth and this place satisfied my every need after I had dinner in the area. Prompt friendly service. Beautiful dining room and PLENTY of desserts to choose from. I ordered the mini trio which I selected a canolli, Napoleon, and the Romance Chocolate cake. All good, especially the Napoleon. Add a Cafe Mocha to that and... More

After dining at a mediocre restaurant in the area, we decided we needed to treat our palates to a delicious dessert. We quickly searched on Trip Advisor and realized we were only a few blocks away from Little Italy and saw the great reviews for Ferrara's so knew this was the place we wanted to go! The minute you enter... More
