Cannoli filling was fresh and delicious, shell was nice and crunchy unlike one we tried further up the road. My son gulped down a double scoop of cookies n cream gelato. The kids behind the cart were... More

My wife and I have been 4 days in a row after dinner or lunch for our dessert. So so fresh and staff are easy going and very friendly. Anyone going for over 40 years is clearly doing something right. Well done.

Stopped in for dessert after dinner. Had the vanilla chai and classic canoli. Both delicious and I agree best canoli I have ever had. I rate it three stars because of the service. Horrible service, I explained to the server I wanted my own check and she refused to split the check for me. She directed me minutes later to... More

We ordered 2 entrees (pizza and pasta), 3 alcoholic drinks, and 5 desserts. I have been wanting a good cannoli for a long time (my grandfather was from Sicily and brought home Italian pastries a...

I often visit this fun, inviting cafe during both business and leisure trips to Manhattan. The wait staff is experienced, friendly and know their dessert. The owner - a second generation owner of this location - usually is right behind the counter to offer recommendations or just talk shop. The desserts are varied and yet invariably great! Try the Bombata... More

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.

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.
