The place looks like it hasn't been cleaned or updated in decades, but they sure do have good desserts! Lots of selection, including numerous types of cannolis. Great gelato selection as well.

The cannoli's are amazing, and all the other pastries I don't know the name of are just as great. True original, authentic old school Italian pastries. It's a New Haven gem that I hope remains for many more years!

There is no Wooster Street evening that is complete without ending up at Libby's. Cappuccino, Gelato, and a million cookies and cannoli to choose from. Table service and counter service. The best.
