The service is not the best. Had a chocolate canolli and it was very good. It's not bad. Looks like a old fashioned caffe. The toilets are very dirty.

Dark, miserable little place. Overpriced and worst coffee ever- bitter and got order wrong twice despite taking ages to serve us. Name trades in location but nothing Italian about this place. Avoid.

This Caffe has friendly and helpful staff. Nice decor that had a good selection of cakes to choose from. But it was disappointing that they didn't have traditional tiramisu. We still had tiramisu that tasted very good. They also served english tea that was good since we traveled to NYC from London. Over all we paid almost $20 for two... More

If you read reviews on Cafe Roma (with one "f"), I think it is the same place. This was good pastry with real Italian ambiance (I've been there). Though I did not taste the cannoli, I did have a Napolean (Italian version) and my son had an eclair. Be warned that this is a cash only pastry shop. If I'm... More

Amazing. The pastries are simply stunning with a superb selection of heavenly delights. The service is terrific and the decor/surroundings are original and full of atmosphere. A favourite destination when in The Big Apple.

After dinner one night in a Little Italy, decided to get Cannoli from 3 of the most popular cafe/bakeries for a little "taste-off". Caffe Roma was by far the best of the 3!!!!! Their Cannoli is creamy and well balanced in terms of texture, sweetness and shell crispness. All Cannoli were between $4 and $4.50 each. Bring cash though-- Roma... More

Stopped here on my do-it-yourself food tour of Chinatown and Little Italy. Two things: try to grab one of the two tables in the window and DEFINITELY get the cannoli. Probably the best cannoli I have ever eaten. The service was great too. I dropped my spoon and the server was already on the way with another one by the... More

An excellent little spot for desserts. They've been doing this for 140 some odd years here and they do it better than just about any other place I've been. Delicious food, all house-made. Friendly service. Great prices. You cannot go wrong here.

Caffe Roma is a historical spot featured also in the Sopranos movie. Cozy and beautifully decorated offers a nice view of Mulberry street in Little Italy and a big range of pastries and coffee. Excellent place to relax after hours of sight seeing and walking, especially in winter when you need a warm place to sit and drink an italian... More

This is a must stop on every NYC trip for me. Their pastries and cookes are very good! The coffee is a must! Great place to warm up after a cold day of walking around the city. This is a cash only establishment.

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.
