Description: Our Uncle Antonio Veniero came to New York City back in 1885 when he was just 16 years old. He worked in a candy factory downtown from our current location. After 3 years he was promoted to a manager and 6 years later he opened his new business at 342 East 11th Street (our current location) which he called A. Veniero Confections. He just served candies but his patrons wanted something to go with the sweets so he started to roast his own espresso (with six different beans) and then he eventually brought in master bakers from Italy and the rest is history. People have been coming to Veniero Pasticceria & caffe for many generations and we are so proud of Antonio Veniero's vision and we strive each and every day to make the freshest desserts, cookies, biscotti, Gelato and drinks. The secret is simple. Use the highest quality ingredients, the finest flavors,freshest fruits and never take any shortcuts. Please come experience the legend of Veniero's for yourself either in person or online. We promise you will feel the passion that Antonio felt when he first came here to America over 131 years ago. That dream is carried on by his great nephew and nieces along with a dedicated baking staff that has a work ethic like no other. Not many places can say that and we can promise you that we will continue to make sure we make the highest quality baked goods for you and your family for generations to come. From our family to your family we look forward to serving you. Ciao, The Veniero family.

Been frequenting this spot for about 30 years only a couple times a year now as an adult as I can drop a hundred dollars with out leaving the Pignoli's... Table service has always been solid but I usually just swing in and grab some delicacies and go home to hoard them all! Canoli's are solid here easily one of the best and there are a lot fo bad canoli's.

I've been a regular since HS in the 70's. Everything is always fresh. Ricotta cheese cake is my personal favorite. My wife loves the almond torte cake. Wide range of full size and miniature size pastry, ice creams and ices available. They have been making cappuccino & espresso longer and better than any national coffee seller. A must visit for all.

Made two visits recently to Veniero's. Brought out of town visitors one time and they were amazed! So much to choose from and everything is delicious: pastries, cookies, cakes, gelatin. The best Italian ricotta cheesecake in the city! The cannolis are great too. Portions are very large. They are always open (8 a.m. to midnight).

Desserts look yummy but seem like they have a thick gel to keep them looking good more a month
Not too thrilled but cookies look good

There are lots of desserts to choose from at Veniero's. Cannoli, cake slices, mousse, cheesecake and more fill the pastry counter. Have fun browsing and enjoy your selection from a table in the restaurant. But, you can only enjoy your pastry in the restaurant if you order from a waiter. The cannoli was tasty but a little too much cinnamon for my preference.
