    The Shakerato is actually a brilliant way to chill down some strong brew: a shot of espresso is mixed with simple syrup and then shaken with ice to form a frothy head. Read more

    A good morning starts with an apricot cornetto ( Italian apricot croissant) and a Marrocchino ( shot of espresso, cocoa powder, and some milk froth ) in this little hole in the wall.

    An espresso and cornetto (Italian-style croissant: plain or stuffed with vanilla cream, chocolate or apricot) in the morning at the counter... a little bit of Rome in NYC.

    Sandwiches good, canollis are great & espresso is wonderful.The men who work there are friendly. The customers , who seem to hang out there are from nearby offices. Very nice. a great discovery.

    bitter coffee, no microfoam texture. Perfect place to go to impress a date with your vast knowledge of Italian coffee because "you spent a semester abroad" only if they've never been

    Aside from their great espresso, try their scrumptious panini. They're the best in town.

    Go there for the coffee, come back again and again for the mini Italian pastries and delicious prosciutto panini.

    Maybe the first real espresso I've ever had in the US. Excellent choice, good location and traditional Italian stand style.

    Espresso is typical traditional Italian (bitter, a little burnt). Filled cornetto is good. Standing room only as befits an Italian espresso bar.

    Was excited to visit this little cafe, but coffee very mild and croissant was sweet and spongy rather than flakey. Atmospheric an nice staff.
