“Superb ice cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

We read great reviews of this place and were not disappointed. The strawberry cheesecake ice cream may be the best my husband and I have ever tasted. We returned the next day and purchased cannolis, which had been highly recommended, but we were a tad disappointed in them. We will definitely return every time we visit NOLA.

“Gelato and Pastries to die for!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Brocoto's is always a must stop place to visit while in New Orleans. The best Gelato in the south, lemon and strawberry ice to die for and the best strawberry gelato on the planet! Try the Rum BaBa's, Prussian's and Napoleon's from the bakery, OMG!!! This place is a Natrional Treasure.

“Worth the trip from the Quarter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

If you wanna get away from the hustle and bustle from the french quarter and love some good old world treats, then you should take the short streetcar ride up Canal st to Carrolton and stop by A, Brocato. The gelato was rich and creamy and all the pastries there reminded me of all the great Italian bakeries on Long Island. Cannolies, Eclaires, Cookies, the works. I was fortunate to be there when it wasn't too busy so I was fortunate enough to sit inside at one of the small tables inside. Trust me. It's a great break from Bourbon.

“Great gelato! Great service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

The gelato is delicious. They have tons of flavors. I had the New York Style Strawberry Cheesecake. Amazing!

My husband was very impressed with his espresso.

But... we are in the tiny minority (maybe it's just us?) -- we did not enjoy the cannoli. The chocolate filling is more like hazelnut, not very chocolatey (perhaps it's supposed to be that way and we're just not cannoli people?).
