“Everything is great! ...except for the gelato”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

The pastries are delicious, the coffee is great, and the cannolis are fantastic. So why must the gelato be so horrible?! Every time I order it, I hope that it has gotten better, but it is consistently bad. The gelato just lacks freshness, it's grainy, and tastes like it has melted and refrozen several times throughout the day.

“The best”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

Been coming here for many, many years. While the service can sometimes be slow (which is usually due to them being packed full), it's worth it. Cannolis, cookies, gelato....all amazing. Please, please don't get dessert at dinner...save room for Vacarro's!

“Seriously good pastry, desserts, and gelato”
Reviewed April 27, 2014 via mobile

Bread, a whole Napoleon, cookies, 3 scoops of gelato !
If I lived close to this place, I'd weigh 300 pounds.
This is Italy, and this place is Italian pastry perfection.
If you don't visit, only to discover later, what you missed,,,, :-(
I would love to be able to go into this place whenever I want, but this was only a holiday one stop experience.
