Enjoyed some cannoli while walking in little Italy on a Saturday nite. Millions of places to choose from. Boy did we make the right choice. So good. We stopped back the next day as we left town

The place was clean and neat and the waitresses very nice. We had cannolis and some water and they were really good. I would come in here and have coffee and visit with friends on a regular basis if I lived here.

We walked around Little Italy to find a place to rest. We happened to walk in this place and were greeted right away. The staff was friendly and the place was clean. The decor said it was the Cannoli King's place. The owner was also there working and helping customers.

The staff is awesome! Have not met a friendlier group in all NY! The coffee is absolutely great. Now, i do not have a sweet tooth but i had to try the canola. It is very very very delicious! I have been to Italy and this place is legit. I recommend everyone try this.

This cafe is known for their canolis. They are some of the best I have ever had anywhere. A little expensive but you are paying for their reputation and quality of the food. A cannoli is $7.

According to the poster and the sign this is one of the finest places in the U.S. For a cannoli. Nice enough place, served quickly and the cannoli was ok but not spectacular

Good place to rest after walking through China Town and Little Italy. They have outside seating, so you'll get to comfortably see Little Italy and have fun people-watching. The street it is on was closed to traffic (not sure if that's always the case). Be sure to try the cannoli, they're delicious! You can order a regular or have it... More

No visit to NYC is complete without a visit to Caffe Palermo. The cannoli is to die for, and the other desserts are delicious too. Our waitress was a gem.

Staying in Little Italy

Neighbourhood Profile
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 for a coffee and a cannoli, or grab a streetside table to take in the scenery over a hearty Italian meal.
