Fantastic pastries and friendly

Almond biscottis and sfogliatella were fantastic and a lovely lovely lady behind the counter at the bakery. You must visit!

So - I'm torn on this one! I had heard from New Yorkers that this was THE place to go in Little Italy. And the wide variety of cannolis were amazing! My husband loves milk with his dessert and the staff inside acted like that was weird (not even on the menu) but got me a cup and didn't even... More

Having never tried cannoli & being in NYC, it would have been churlish to not have ventured into Little Italy to try it. I tried it from 3 different restaurants, including Caffe Palermo & Caffe Napoli, but this place had THE best, most luscious, light, scrumptious, delicate and simply perfect cannoli. I tried both the regular and the red velvet... More

My wife and I were fortunate to have a friend take us here late one night for some Italian goodies. He had to bring home some goodies for his family, and we marveled at all the choices. Gee, all I wanted was a cannoli ... didn't know there were so many choices. My friend bought cookies, cannoli and zeppole (what... More

Best italian desserts. Super fresh. Find it weird that there is no italian working when we went all Latinas. There should be a little touch of Italy.

This was suggested to by someone that used to live in the area. Been there since around 1898, serving desserts to members of little Italy. We tried the mini taster which was nice. Unfortunately the service was below par, having to wait quite a while for service.

If you haven't eaten an true Italian dessert, then you must come and experience Ferrara's! The Cannoli's, Fruit Tartlets, Petit Fours are amazing and they top off a great after dinner or lunch! They have some celebrities pictures on the wall, but this place speaks for itself on truly mouth watering and satisfying desserts. Stop on by and get ready... More

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!

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.
