We stopped in for Italian Cookies to bring to my parent's house for dinner. They are very good, but you can similarly good cookies other local Italian Bakeries. A bit pricey. But, the connection to the old Little Italy makes stopping here emotionally satisfying. 1...pound of cookies (very good) $25 Bag of Biscotti (Good) $12 Cup of Struffoli (OK) $6More

Cobran más de la cuenta. No hacen claridad de Los sobrecargos. El servicio al cliente es el peor. El trato al cliente es pésimo. No volvería aquí nunca. They charge more than the bill. They do not make clarity of the flight attendants. Customer service...is the worst. The customer service is lousy. I would never go back here.More

My favorite place for sweets! But when I come here it means I have to spend an entire week on double time working out, because YUM the Tiramisu, the Napoleon's, the Double Chocolate and the Cannoli's are to die for. LOL, I'll be working out...all this week! Happy San Genaro!More

I was double charged for $122. Joseph, who I spoke with, promised to resolve the problem but never did.

We always make bakery visits everywhere we go and this one was my favorite out of the 11 we visited in our 6 days in NYC. The lobster tail pastry was perfectly tender and the custardy cream inside was DIVINE. Don't get a lobster tail...at Carlo's Bakery-get them HERE and you won't be disappointed!More

I was disappointed by the flavor of the chocolate ganache cake. I ordered a whole cake for delivery and it had a "stale store" taste to it. I also expected it to be a little creamier, but the chocolate was overly dense and it make...the cake taste dry. As a native New Yorker I can say that, by comparison, Veniero is much better.More

We stopped in Ferrara Bakery for a late night coffee and dessert because we were told how wonderful it was by a tour guide earlier during our trip. It was the BEST dessert we had during our entire trip to New York City!! The Italian...Gelato was so delicious I wish I could've bought it by the quart, or at the very least try some of the other flavors. The little serving they give you is a teaser and leaves you with the desire to have more. :) Some of us tried the Gelato cold coffee beverages and they were also so fantastic that my son ordered a second one to go. It was by far one of our very favorite places to enjoy on our first-time ever trip to NY. We have craved it since we came back home to Colorado. Would highly recommend even though it was a bit pricey, after all it was NYC.More

My daughter, friend, and I stopped in to Ferrara while walking around Little Italy and Chinatown and were very impressed with the assortments of pastries, gelatos, liquors, etc. offered. My daughter got gelato and loved it! I picked up some pastries including cannoli and was...impressed with the freshness, taste, and variety offered. Also available are soft drinks as well as bottles of liquor. Prices are reasonableness in price. Definitely worth a stop and we will definitely return!More

This is a great place for dessert in a relaxing atmosphere. It's not inexpensive, but worthwhile. This trip to Ferrara, we had a Cannoli and a Lobster Tail with Cappuccino's. It was very good and full of calories, and we didn't give it a second...thought. If you are in the Chinatown or Little Italy area, stop in for a fun-filled dessert time.More

Standard test of the cannoli and lobster tail. Lobster tail was solid. Would get again. Cannoli was just ok. Liked the shell more than the inside. Alleva Dairy across the street is also a most go.

I used parkwhiz site and parked at garage on Leonard. It was a few blocks walk but not too expensive and away from Little Italy congestion.

There are a few meters on the street in front of Ferrari’s, but a garage around the corner in Chinatown. I used iPark. They have an online coupon for half off.
