No kidding! The best cannoli, we had the original and chocolate. In my opinion, I thought it was better than Carlos Bakery in Hoboken. Sorry it's so far away....

We picked up a single cannoli to take back for a late night snack. It was amazing and we wish we would have gotten more. We will seek this place out on a future visit.

We were walking in Little Italy in NYC and then we saw the huge title about cannoli king. It was really a king cannoli! Delicious, fresh! Very good! I think it is for sure one of the best cannoli in New York City!

This place and their deserts live up to all the hype. They have a huge selection of cakes and baked items to pick from, plus gelato, but you go for one thing really..the cannolis. Easily the best cannolis I have ever had - the shell...More

I am from Spain, I´m a great fan of Canolli.I have tried canolis everywhere I travel. I have tried the canollis of this cafe shop. It is delicious. They are much better than Carlo's Bake Shop. Without so much publicity, give more quality.

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
