It's unfair to sell cannolis right out on the street. But going in is even more perilous. Every pastry is better than the last, and wonderfully fresh. The only mercy is that some of the pastries come in smaller sizes, so visitors can sample a couple. They also make a mean cup of coffee. Friendly people, wonderful bakers.

I visit NYC with the family every year with the family and this is a MOST GO TO for pastries. No better pastries anywhere else in NYC.

This place is tiny but it is jam packed with delicious Italian cookies. On Mulberry in Little Italy it is a must do stop for the Italian cookies of your youth and always worth a stop.

My husband and I arrived in Little Italy at 7am, tired, and in need of caffeine. We left our bags in our hotel and headed out. This cafe was across the road from our hotel, still closed to the public but opening up. It was below freezing, NY still suffering from the snow storm. We ventured in, and asked for... More

I've tried cannolis from just about anywhere I can find them: Brooklyn, Hoboken, NYC, other bakeries in Little Italy, NY, and even Little Italy in Cleveland. The red velvet cannoli from La Bella Ferrara has so far been my very favorite! If you like red velvet with cream cheese and have the chance, try one!! It's my new favorite!

Discovered this place by accident. Pastries were great. Whenever I go to NYC (about once a year) I always go there. I love the atmosphere as well as the food. Once when I was there I left my umbrella and the waiter came out and caught me to give it to me. He didn't have to do that. He didn't... More

My husband and I stopped here for Cannoli. We had red velvet, peanut butter, and plain. They were all delicious. Look forward to stopping next time we are in the area.

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.
