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.

The selection of pastries, cakes and biscottis is amazing. The canolis are endless. This is a great place to buy italian pastries and bring back home with pride that you have been at La bella Ferrara bakery, the oldest and most historic bakeries in Little Italy.

For a long time I was going to ferraros, down the street, but randomly wandered in here for the first time a few years ago. Best biscotti! Lots... More

We stopped here for after dinner dessert and they were very busy, but surprisingly weren't running out of anything. If you visit this place, make sure to try the Napoleon and any and... More

Tiny treasure hidden in Little Italy. Mini cannoli are to die for. Service was friendly and attentive. No place to sit is only drawback. Do not miss.
