My family and I were looking for a place to eat something sweet with tea or a cup of coffee. The portions and flavors were reallly good, and the Canoli amazing.

There seems to be some confusion. We do not offer an $8 cannoli. All of our prices are clearly labeled on our menu. We take pride offering New York’s best cannollis at affordable prices.

Amazing gelato! We had three flavours and all were fantastic. It was such a nice atmosphere and felt like one of those magical New York moments you see in movies and TV shows.

Had to stop and get a cannoli for dessert so I opted for the mini. Just as delicious and the perfect size after a big meal. Highly recommend if you are nearby.

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
