Must have!

Found this one while reviewing places to eat in New York. It's a must to get some of best New York has to offer. We each had something different and loved everything. The peanut butter cheese cake is to die for! Always same room for dessert.

I took a tour and the guide told me Rocco's canolis were the best ones in town. He wasn't wrong. They are really good and fresh as they are filled just when you ask for them. I would definitely go back.

With all the historical pictures and the story behind the name, one would think this place is a gem of the sweets. Not. Starting with the service that lacked everything to the very mediocre sweets we ordered, this place sucked. Rum Baba and Key Lime pie that was made of a substance resembling the hardening Elmer's wood glue are worth... More

Handmade in front of you while you wait. The "small" size is easily enough for one person. They also have soda If you ask for it

Best Canoli outside of Italy. Freshly piped with traditional ricotta cream filling and topped with dark chocolate chips. The Canoli is absolutely sublime, crunchy shell and delicous filling. Do yourself a favour and have a Canoli if you are on Bleeker Street. YUM!

We entered the place jus for a quick stop. Coffee and a taste of the famous cannoli. Coffee was wonderful: I had a strong, well prepared espresso, my wife had a generous cappuccino. The cannoli was decorated with low quality chocolate chips on one side, and some pistachios on the other. The crust was crispy and nice, but the filling... More

After a fail at a nearby restaurant we decided to bury our sorrows with a coffee. Walked in to Rocco's got a window seat and a friendly Xavier came to serve us with one of the best lattes my husband has ever tasted and a luscious cheesecake. Worth every penny! Xavier was attentive and his recommendation on other pastry sweets... More

Old fashioned Italian bakery / café on famous bleeker street. THE BEST CANOLI in NYC. they make them fresh right in front of you, plain or chocolate dipped, pistachio AND chocolate chips - so the shell doesn't get soggy from sitting around. great gelato, cookies, cakes. a throwback to the 1950's

We took the train to the village during a layover at JFK at a friend's recommendation to eat pizza at Numero 28 around the corner and dessert here at Rocco's. For 3 people stuffed full with pizza, two desserts would have been plenty but our eyes were bigger than our stomachs. We ordered a large cannoli, napoleon and sfogliatelle and... More

In MN where I live I have not seen "table service." If we buy food we are able to use an open table. If the restaurant wants to control the use of tables they display a nice sign "wait to be seated." They do not allow a tired family to sit down at one of a few empty tables with... 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.
