Delicious!!!

I must say the excellent rating is for the food. The service isn't that great, but the sweets are so incredible I couldn't help but give an excellent rating! I'll go back for the cookies any day!

We stopped here for refreshment after shopping nearby for cheeses and the like, and I agree that Rocco's has bragging rights- the cannoli was the best I have ever tasted. I opted for the plain shell, as it was my first time here and I like to leave well enough alone when testing. Crisp as could be, filled on order... More

Revisited the cafe after remembering a prior visit and was not disappointed. Split a New York cheesecake slice and Italian cheesecake slice with my husband and two grown sons. Delicious!! Some of the very best I have ever eaten. Arrived on a Thursday afternoon and the staff was efficient and courteous. Went out of their way to explain the online... More

Just peeking at the sweets in case is worth the trip! We tried the cannoli and the mini eclairs, EXCELLENT! The cannoli's they fill when you order so they are fresh and crisp!

How can I explain the best pastry shop in NY city ? The display cases alone are worth visiting because the selection and variety of choices are overwhelming. They also have sugar free as well as milk free sweets to choose from for those who are diabetic or lactose intolerant. I recommend the Cannoli or perhaps the Napoleon. It can... More

Rocco's offers standard Italian pastries, 5 stars. Service is uneven and unremarkable, 3 stars. Rocco's has been a regular of mine for many years. Last year, however, everything seemed tasteless, including my favorite "baba o'rum", which was dry and flavorless. So this year I had to try again, either to confirm the demise of a friend, or welcome a return... More

If you think you've had a cannoli, THINK AGAIN! At Rocco's, the shell isn't filled until the order is placed. What a difference this makes in the texture of the cannoli. Besides that, the cream filling is absolutely to die for! (And we're not big foodies. We just know what is good and THIS IS GOOD!) My husband thought he... More

We visited this Bakery during our Free Tours on Foot. We were told by our guide, Lori, that the cannolis were amazing and she was right. I am not a huge cannoli fan, maybe because I never had a good one! The shells of these are empty until you order one, then they use a pastry bag to fill them.... More

This restaurant was great! Although the server's weren't the best, what made up was the quality of the food! My wife and I came here just for desert and it was definitely worth it! She had the cannoli, which she absolutely loved! From what she said, it was the best cannoli she ever had! And that is saying a lot... More

We were guided to this wonderful family owned bakery by our Big Apple Greeter who thought we needed to have our first taste of cannolis. Wow what an introduction, sweet, indulgent and out of this world. We also took away with us a selection of their lovely biscuits and huge marzipan fruits. There is also a cafe at the back... More

Staying in West Village

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
