    The greatest cannoli you can imagine is at Villabate Alba, which has been around for over 80 years and is located a block from where I used to live, says Suzanne Corso, author of Brooklyn Story. Read more

    Authentic italian bread. Get their rum cake and cannoli's. The cookies at $6 a box, fantastic. Gelato = heaven in your mouth. Especially tiramisu. Lobster tails and S cookies, YES.

    Honestly the best Italian bakery you can find. I'm from Pennsylvania and if I ever visit Brooklyn and don't come home with a Villabate box, my mother would slap me.

    Lines around the corner and down the street before any major holiday. I always hit this place up before visiting someone who's never been to Brooklyn

    The cannoli and sfogliatelle are arguably better than Ferrara.
