    Top notch gelato and cookies. Try the Stracciatella and a biscotti with espresso for dipping if you have room.

    The cannoli are not filled to order. They're sitting in the display case pre-filled so the shell is soft, not crunchy.

    The shell they use for the cannoli is the perfect thinness. Filling could use more chocolate chips, but very good otherwise. Pignoli cookies are scary good. Also, there's a cat.

    Forget bodega kitties, how about a bakery kitty? Be careful - he can occasionally get a bit aggressive, but is also a total sweetheart. Cannolis are good too 😻.

    A nice slice of old Williamsburg. Try the bows. It's a firm, flaky pastry drowned in powdered sugar. Just wipe your shirt off after. People may think you were doing something else.

    Picked up the nougat on impulse. Get the nougat. It even comes wrapped up like a little gift. Don't be confused by the clams in the pastry case, the marzipan is just really well sculpted.

    Come in, sit down, order a cup of coffee and a pastry (the lulus – basically giant cream puffs – are great), and relax. It's not a place to order coffee and dash, but everything is delicious.

    Come here at the wrong time, you'll battle to get any of the tables because 10 or 12 old italian guys are hanging around like only old italian guys can, blocking the corridors, using multiple chairs.
