The mini cannolis are perfect! It is the perfect pastry to cream ratio!!! They are the I have had anywhere in the world! I can only image the regular cannolis are just as good. I took biscotti home for the family, they wrapped it up for me to travel with. The biscotti was also very good.

Saw this place while wandering around Little Italy with my sisters. Stopped by after dinner and got cannoli and cookies to take with us. Everything was amazing. The butter cookies held together really well in the container but literally melted in our mouths. Sooo good!

Went twice! Nice staff! So much to choose from :) Awesome cannolis with a variety of flavors/combinations. Got some of their biscuits/cookies, so tasty! Price affordable. Love that they have small mini's of their regular items if you just want a small treat! Ask for powdered sugar and they will coat your cannoli!

Great service, and the mini cannolis were beyond heavenly (I had the peanut butter and the red velvet ones), as was the cappuccino! What a great find!!!

This bakery in Little Italy is one of the best in the world! They sell cookies by the pound. You pick them from trays lining the wall and they are all wonderfully delicious! If you go around Christmas, you'll get to buy their wonderful Italian Christmas cookies that are as good as my italian grandma used to make!

Simply stated, the best cannoli in NYC. We went for two dozen of the minis and two never made the box. We ate them right in the store. We love this bakery. Their other items, cookies, pastries, etc. are all good, but we make the trip for those cannoli!

Never disappointed. Best old school Italian cookies anywhere! And the cannolis are fabulous but I try to resist! Like another visitor mentioned, I grew up in NY and don't like the "tourist" places but this is a must stop every time I'm in town. I bring everyone who is with me here whenever I'm in town. Dinner across the street... More

After spending $35 for a box of BEAUTIFULLY made cannolis, I was terribly disappointed. They have resorted to using whipped cream to fluff up their ricotta cheese filling. Also, they seem to have a knack of coating and glazing their cannoli shells for a longer shelf life (and crispier texture). I'm so ashamed to bring a box of their pastries... 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.
