Wandering down Mulberry Street and decided to drop in for a good coffee which was the case. The coffee is a good brew. The real treat was the minute I walked in the door and saw the huge selection of beautiful biscuits and cabinets of cannoli. I think I put on a few pounds they were excellent. I particularly liked...

A friend and I won a trip to New York City's Little Italy area through a local Italian restaurant. We got to choose wherever we wanted to go. After dinner, we spotted this place and decided to get cannolis (my first one, actually)! We each got a chocolate covered cannoli. Now, I'm not really a huge chocolate fan but this... More

The pastries at this place are delicious. Keep in mind that this is a decades long standing business. The staff is really courteous and attentive; they even give you suggestions if you don't know what to get.

We decided to catch a movie in Battery Park when the hubby had a hankering for cannoli. So via the subway off we go to Little Italy. Beautiful Saturday night and a sea of ppeople everywhere. It was about a 10 minute walk from the subway. Set up outside the restaurant was a hostess behind a a glass case that... More

Great selection of traditional Italian butter cookies, pastries at a more reasonable price than many of he bakeries - between $9-$14 a lb.

Average but very overpriced cannoli. The sfagliatelle was decent and the eclair was exceptional. Rude staff, I know it's NYC but still I felt like I was disturbing her with my order. Easy to get to.

As if we had not eaten enough at the Feast of San Gennaro, we stopped at La Bella Ferrara for MORE dessert. Instead of getting something from their food stand and walking around we decided to sit at one of their outside tables. Since the patio is so small they only have a few tables. We were lucky one was... More

And the pignoli cookies are awesome too! Really can't go wrong here but the hard part is picking just a few things to bring home when you really want to get one of everything. Don't get into this part of the city often enough but when I do, definitely stop here and get a box of pastries and cookies to... 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.
