All the cookies we tried were great. The Florentines were as good as I've ever had.My husband loved the fig cookies and my kids enjoyed the peanut butter cheesecake.
They had interesting Italian Ices, but we were just too cold.

Years ago, a visit to New Haven's Wooster Street had to include stopping by Libby's for fresh Italian pastry or Italian Ice. Unfortunately, our most recent visit left us regretting our decision to indulge. Most regrettable was the restaurant's decision to restrict their seating to those only willing to use their waiter service. No longer can you order at the counter and enjoy a few minutes in the cafe seating - now you must use the waiter service. Service was less than welcoming and it seemed we were interupting the server's conversation with a co-worker. Our pastries, while enjoyable, were nothing spectacular and the beverages overpriced and unremarkable. Average at best.

If you are ever in New Haven, this is the place to go for authentic Italian sweets. Large selection and friendly service. Offers an eat in area just in case you can't wait until you get home. :)

Libby's has the best Italian ice bar none. A great selection. They have started to cut down on their portions. Their pastry is ok. Lucibello's is tops for pastry.
