When in little Italy, you must do as the Italians do, eat a great creamy, fresh cannoli! You will get one if you stop at La Bella Ferrara. Great Italian pastry, but get ready to wait on a long line depending on when you arrive. Get ready to press your face to the bakery glass and start drooling, then pick... More

You have to go visit them and try the cannolis and other great desserts. Located in Little Italy. Worth the stop!

My first experience in America and Little Italy. As an enthusiast of Italian food and a student chef in the UK, I have to say that I was thoroughly disappointed with the pastries that I bought. I brought several varieties of cannolies which all tasted stale. The ones on display clearly had not been rotated and because there were so... More

Stopped here and picked up some cannoli's and a few assorted pastries for the wife and kids. Always good! Make sure to check out the lobster tails if they have them.

After a group of us had dinner in Chinatown, we topped off our time together with desserts from this casual bakery. There is minimal seating space, so we hung out and enjoyed our yummy picks.

We always stop here when in little Italy to pick up some treats to bring home. Bring back some canollies or cream puffs and you wont be disappointed. Anything from the cookies to the cheesecake are worth trying. So grab a box of heaven and enjoy.

I love this place and stop here every couple of months or so when I'm in the city. You will not find better cookies anywhere! Sure, they're not cheap but it's worth the splurge!

Oh my! Such a hot day and the Italian ice was a welcome relief. The coconut was a bit sweet but the pineapple delish! The cannoli with chocolate chips was a wee bit sweet, the French horn was perfecto and the black and white fully frosted and crispy. It was a bit of a trek but would do it again!

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.
