The crowd here was unbelievable. We could hardly get the door open. However, we were able to get a seat in about 5 minutes. Best cannoli everyone at our table had ever had.

Came for dessert and was not disappointed. We had the almond sugar cone filled with cannoli filing and it was both different and very tasty. The cone had a slightly sticky feel to it, but the taste was very different and was well worth a...More

Great cannoli, the traditional is the best, just like in Italy. Good coffee and service too. The restroom is unisex, but clean.

A friend of ours sent us there. It is a small place and often you have to wait to be seated. However, the food is great, the service is outstanding and the deserts are to die for.

Any time we are in Little Italy we stop here for a Cannoli. In our opinion, it's the best and nothing in NYC is cheap, but it's reasonable priced.

Nearby
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
