    It's clearly a must to visit in Little Italy, it was crazy crowded! Desserts are sooo sweet it was difficult for me to eat a slice in one sitting. Very nice and cozy place, remembers old times 😀

    The best bakery in Little Italy & uber crowded during holidays. Because it's so famous, I've watched prices go from $6-$21a pound for cookies. HIGHWAY ROBBERY! The gelato is worth it & reasonable

    Get the LOBSTER TAIL! OMG!!!!!!!!! Amazing, melt in your mouth macaroons. The lemon custard was so delightfully, strong lemon. A cup of house coffee and a bag full of pastry samples was only $7.25.

    Ferrara Bakery & Cafe was founded in 1892 by Antonio Ferrara as a place where he and his friends might go after the opera, to share a coffee and play their favorite card games. Read more

    Try a cappuccino with a simple pastry like the fruit tart. Gelato selection is also good. Try the biscotti, pistachio, hazelnut and Nutella flavors.

    This gem situated in Little Italy is a must try. Prosciutto and fig pizza is delicious and one of a kind. Complement it with one of the gelato drinks and the tripple mini dessert option.

    Cannoli's are out of this world. Some of my favorite things to eat. I had plain and chocolate cannoli. Everything there looked delicious, especially the chocolate cakes.

    Leave the gun, take the cannoli. Eat it with your fingers. Avoid the normal American cakes. Opt for the traditional Italian deserts. Grab the lobster tails when they have them!!

    I don't know which bakery is best in all of NYC. This place or Veniero's in the East Village. This place has the best Nutella ice cream ever!

    Feels like a tourist trap and definitely pricer than its Brooklyn counterparts, but they do Italian pastries well here. Probably the best cannoli in Little Italy.

    Established in 1892 by an opera impresario and continuously family owned and operated. This Italian cafe and bakery is among the oldest in the city and serves a number of fresh and delicious treats.

    I loved the ambience here. There's usually a bit of a wait because it's quite popular, but it's worth it. I had the New York Cheesecake, and absolutely loved it.

    Vanilla sponge filled with layers of coffee & chocolate custard cream bathed in an orange blossom punch then topped with fresh whipped cream made a believer of me ~Italian Traditional Cake~

    The old school family-owned cafe claims to be America’s first espresso bar, but is now especially beloved for its fresh cannoli and Italian pastries.

    All the pastry is good but the Cannoli - plain or dark chocolate covered are the best in town.
