“A little overrated, I feel.....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

If you want a real chocolate eclair, go to a french bakery. The eclairs were good, but nothing special. The small cannelloni's were fresh and crispy and made on the spot. However, the filling was just OK, a little grainy with not much flavor.

The coffee (cafe au lait) was also average.

The seating is not conducive to lingering as it is not comfortable (wrought iron seats).

We did not sample the gelato, for which it is famous. The range seemed excellent. Definitely not the second best restaurant in New Orleans in my opinion.

“Experience Old New Orleans First Hand”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

Gelato, cannolis and the coffee are delicious but I can't go there without getting the Strawberry Ice. It is so cool and refreshing. The staff are very friendly and will let you sample just about anything. Going inside is like going back in time...A great experience.

“Forget the calories~”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

Phenomenal bakery items that are just too hard to resist! I went on and had to have some gelato to top it off. Delicious! Very polite and friendly staff, too. Worth hunting down for an exceptional treat or two... or more!

“Pretty good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013 via mobile

It was pretty good, though it's definitely not the 2nd best restaurant in New Orleans. We had ice cream, cannolis, and an Italian soda. Good, pretty good, but not out of this world like I'd expect for the #2 restaurant.

“Good treat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

Went here after a long hot day of sight seeing. The Gelato was great. Would have liked to try the cookies and all their other goodies, but had no room left after eating the gelato. Should have gotten some to go, but my children are not big sweet eaters, so I would have eaten them, and I do not need the calories.
