great Italian desserts

I like to stop by here after a day in NYC. I stock up on my favorite cannolis. However, just about anything you get here will not disappoint. Try the Lobster Tails!

We had the best lobster tails (italian dessert) in all of NYC. It's a very small bakery but they serve some of the best italian pastries I've ever tasted. Every time I'm in NYC I travel to little Italy to eat their desserts. The staff is also very friendly!!!

Whenever I am in New York, I have to make a stop in little Italy at la bella ferrera. Best almond/chocolate almond biscotti. I always get a pound and have to refrain myself from getting more.

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

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.
