    If you are looking for the most traditional Italian #Baba al Rum " or " Tiramisu" this is the place. Forget your diet or browsing your e-mails ! Perfect for late Sunday before crashing into reality.

    Everything looked so good! We were completely overwhelmed. Went with the classic: cannoli. Very good. But I still dream about also eating one of the pies.

    Perfect cannoli and frutamisu (or smth like that), all pastries looks sooooo gooood. Very nice place. The only con is that coffee here is not that perfect (it's a tiny con). The place is awesome

    If you like cream and fruit, def get the fruitimisu. I made the mistake once of ordering a small, and had to go back next week because I couldn't stop dreaming of it! Go for the large!

    Vanilla meringues have a delicious almondy taste to them. It's seems like there's too many things to have them all. Bonus for gluten-free people, they have a few cheesecakes without the crust.

    This old school Italian bakery has just about every cookie you can imagine, plus cakes, espresso drinks, and a covered back garden.

    Cannolis are piped with cream to order and always good. Their black and white cookies aware huge and have a lemon cake base which isn't for everyone's taste.

    known for their cannolis but their giant chocolate chip and jam dot cookies are also excellent. avoid going in the afternoon or you may get stuck behind a bus load of tourists.

    A "coffee with milk" here is an Americano with steamed milk & top-frothing, lovingly prepared. 16oz large = $2. No reason ever to get bodega coffee or Starbucks in this part of the W Village.

    I can't believe all the tips about cannoli but nothing about the Bab'au Rum with cannole cream????? It's amazing and you knock back the rum when you're done, there's so much! -getting a cannoli 2day.

    I'm not huge into the cannoli here but I guess I'm not huge into them anywhere. the cheesecake, however, is better than every nyc cheesecake spot I've been to. coffee is great too.

    Get the cannoli. The filling actually tastes like ricotta, unlike at other places where they make it too sweet and you don't even know what you're eating.
