Would not recommend this place! The food was merely acceptable, however other concerns existed. I was over charged, under served and lied to by the manager Peter to my face. My original reservation for a bridal shower brunch was for 18 people. I called Peter 2 days prior to the party and changed the number of guests to 15. Upon... More

Everything is absolutely great about this place. Starting with the convenient parking lot in the back, which made it much easier in a cold winter day. The staff is super friendly, accommodating, welcoming and and often asks if there is anything that you need. The brunch is sumptuous to say the least. It includes a tray of delicious bakery items...

We go here every single time we are in NYC (which is about every 4 to 6 weeks) ... we always have the cannoli which are amazing ... and trust me we have tried cannoli all over the world ... they are even better than the ones we had right in Italy ... it's a great place for breakfast or... More

Food and service were excellent. our only complaint was the noise level which usually is not an issue but both of my parents wear hearing aids and were therefore not able to converse with us through the meal. otherwise it was excellent

We visited Pasticceria Bruno last evening for dinner. It was, indeed, a fantastic dining experience. Our server, Adam, could not have been more pleasant! He was very familiar with the wine list, as well as the menu. We each chose a pasta special with two types of clams and crab meat. It was delicious and, of course, we had some... More

We went to Cake Boss café and were disappointed...and tehn came here and were happy again- Tried the cannoli, lobster tail, mille feuilles and a cupcake-they were all excellent- Large sizes, nice and fresh and decent prices. There was no wait to be served and staff were very friendly. Thank you so much, and we will definitely be back next... More

This is a cute little place with some outdoor seating that looks like it could be a real find. A banner declares that their cannolis won the Bobby Flay Throw-Down, but with so many shows on the Food Channel most everyone has won something these days. The cannoli was, in fact, delicious. The other pastries, however, looked great, but lacked... More

We were in desperate need of some tea and cake and some shelter from the rain when we stopped off here. Our expectations weren't particularly high - we just needed sustenance! We each ordered a cheesecake to go with our tea which was pretty good but arrived a good 5mins before our drinks. Having been asked what tea we wanted... More

The cannolis here are famous for a reason. They are perfectly sweet (but not too sweet) and the ricotta really stands out. The pastry is flaky and melts in your mouth when you bite. They have an incredible array of pastry options to choose from, so there is something for everyone from every culture (they had French, Italian, and American... More
