How can you not love Brocatos!

It's the real deal! I love everything there but especially the spumoni, fig and Almond cookies! Old New Orleans at its finest! Worth the trip for locals and tourists.

I work for a highly rated restaurant in the city and wondered how an ice cream parlor remained so high on Trip Advisors list here in New Orleans for so long. I no longer wonder why. The ice cream is outstanding. The service was friendly and the atmosphere pleasant. And the prices were reasonable. I will be certainly be back.... More

This place is an icon in New Orleans. It's a must stop for locals and tourists. The Italian desserts are incredible. They have wonderful gelato and Italian ice. But my favorites are their almond crescent cookies dipped in chocolate and their chocolate canolis. They make the canolis while you wait. So delicious! Often there is a line here. So get... More

My wife and my favorite place to get dessert. Open late. Best gelato in the city. Good selection of pastries. Try the sfogliatelle. So good and the only place in the city that i know where you can get these authentic Italian desserts. Reminds us of our trip to Italy.

This is a tiny, quaint place to get the best gelato in town. The eclairs are delicious. This is a great place for a date. My husband and I had a sweet time!

We had Italian Chocolate Chip, Strawberry Cheesecake and Banana Pudding Gelato. The Banana Pudding was just the best thing we have ever had. We also had a Mezza Chocolate Custard Filled Pastry, it was delicious. Great service and they were very busy too. Definitely make a stop here.

We discovered this wonderful Italian pastry and ice cream shop because of the great reviews that we had read. I was so glad that we stopped by. The cannolis and gelato rivaled those that we had in Italy. Simply delicious! The staff is very friendly and welcoming. This little shop gives you the feeling that you're back in time. I... More
