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

We were disappointed with what looked like awesome bakery treats. The Tiramisu...well it's not a tiramisu at all! It's more like a mille-feuille. Very disappointing. We tried a plain cannoli which we're sorry to say was bland, we've had better back home in Montreal. We bought several little cookies and I ended up tossing them after a bite each. Very... More

stop in for a delicious cannoli! Doesn't matter what flavour as they are all delicious! I love how they have little ones so you can taste a couple. I have to unfortunately say, not the best gelato. Tastes like ice cream and I've had much better. Stick to what's inside and baked and you won't be disappointed.

I ordered a ricotta italian cheese cake and sfogliatella both where on the bland side. The cheese cake was also hard, like the outer skin if you want to call it that, like old. But the espresso was good. NOTE there is no bathrooms!!!!!

The best canolis. Incredible selection of flavors in all sizes. That is just the start, all sorts of old school Italian pastries made to perfection. Suggest the smaller canolis and pastries with a crowd to share. Gelato also offered right on the street, very good. Perfect stop after a meal in Chinatown or Little Italy.
