We just returned from Italy and let me tell you, we just WISHED that the cannoli in Italy had the complex flavors, candied fruits and depth of freshness of Angelo Brocato's pastry! The place is maybe a little on the "seedy" side, but that makes it even more true to Italy! None of the gelato joints in Italy are as... More

This place had such a story of survival and revival that we would have gone just for that. However, every pastry and gelato we tried were fabulous. What a great neighbourhood feeling we had going there and eating something decadent!

It can get crowded here and there are not very many tables. But the ice cream and pastries are very good.

Angelo Brocato has been selling gelato and Italian pastry to New Orleanians for over 100 years and there's reason for its longevity: it's all good - gelatos, Italian ices, and pastries. Conveniently located on 2 streetcar lines (Canal Street and Carrolton), Brocato is known for serving a wide variety of richly-flavored gelatos and sorbettos but also has scrumptious Italian baked...

We just had ice cream, but I wouldn't go out of my way to go again for that. Plenty of other good options for that in town. Maybe the other items are more notable.
