Came for dessert and was not disappointed. We had the almond sugar cone filled with cannoli filing and it was both different and very tasty. The cone had a slightly sticky feel to it, but the taste was very different and was well worth a try. Also had the chocolate chip gelato and it was also quite good. Definitely if... More

Discovered this cafe 2 years ago and recently sought it out during a return trip. I love this section of Little Italy, and the cafe is the perfect sidewalk setting to grab a coffee and a dessert while you take a brief reprieve from walking. The dessert menu is massive, but they state that their cannoli's are the best.

We had fantastic lunch earlier and wanted to have a coffee and a cannoli for dessert. The cannoli was fantastic. The flavor, the crunch of the shell, all to perfection. Most cannoli's have a small bit of cannoli cream piped on both ends, these were stuffed all the way through!!!

Great cannoli, the traditional is the best, just like in Italy. Good coffee and service too. The restroom is unisex, but clean.

We tried their almond cheesecake cone and it was more than delicious. Everyone should try it!!! Their cannoli was good too, but just like all the places around. The thing you can't get elsewhere is there almond cheesecake cone!!!

A friend of ours sent us there. It is a small place and often you have to wait to be seated. However, the food is great, the service is outstanding and the deserts are to die for.

Any time we are in Little Italy we stop here for a Cannoli. In our opinion, it's the best and nothing in NYC is cheap, but it's reasonable priced.

The large banner on the restaurant indicates they have the best cannoli's in the world and a nearby sign indicates it is one of the top 4 in the U.S. and lists each of them.

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.
