    While there are many good pignolis all over the city, the best I've found are at Veniero's, the venerable Italian pastry shop—since 1894!—in the East Village. Read more

    This neighborhood institution is great for gifts for locals and out of towners alike or for an evening coffee.The pastry selection is endless, and a great scoop of gelato or ice cream for only $2.50!

    Fruit Supreme Cake: They describe this as a 'fruit triumph' and they're not wrong. Amber sponge cake delicately infused with raspberry brandy, filled with bavarian cream and fresh fruits.

    The NY cheesecake is amazing!!! Very strong in taste & texture, both creamy and sweet. The strawberries are very fresh. No crust at the bottom but I didn’t miss it either. One slice is A LOT

    Amazing cakes for such great prices. To make the choice easier for you, definitely go with the strawberry shortcake - it's to die for!

    This place has been dishing out Sicilian pastries for almost 120 years and serving espresso before it was all the rage. All the pastries are mouth watering, but save room for the mini tarts!

    Delicious cheesecake. I liked it without the crust. It was very dense yet fresh, the strawberries were very good as well. Highly recommend

    Best sfogliatelle outside of Napoli. This place can get busy with tourists but it's worth it. Just remember to get a number from the ticket machine on your right when you walk in - don't be a square

    Got the vanilla and chocolate cannoli, both excellent. Really authentic old school NYC bakery. Get the Rum Baba if you like your pastries really boozy.

    Pickup a box of assorted cookies to impress everyone at the party you’re going to. Or cheesecake. Or strawberry shortcake. Get something for your walk home too. Arrive early, there’s usually a line.

    This old school Italian dessert bar oozes nostalgia but has kept up with the times by offering a few gluten free and some dairy free desserts. Definitely a fun place to load up on sugar.

    Delicious cheesecake! American style is creamier and denser (think a better version of Junior’s) whereas Italian style is a bit lighter and more aromatic. Keep well in the fridge.

    Far & away, the best Italian pastry bakery in NYC. Must try for first timers: the New York Cheesecake or a Chocolate Filled Cannoli.

    Fruit Supreme (brandy soaked cake w fruit slices top) and cheesecakes are excellent choices. But you MUST try their Black Forest cake :) rich moist cake & subtle cherries chocolate & cream. <3

    A century old establishment. Outstanding quality and taste from cheese cake, mousse to cakes and pastries. It is more expensive than cheese cake factory. Cool place for dating

    Our last stop on the tour is a sweet one! Pick your favorite mini-pastry and place a bulk order if you'd like to share it with others. I'm a cannoli girl myself, but there are many great choices.

    Over a century old, it’s no surprise that the chocolate dipped cannoli is made to perfection. Get a mouthful of that decadent cream as you bite into the dense, crunchy chocolate shell.

    An old-school cafe serving up a wide variety of desserts, pastries, and coffee. Wait in line if you want to be seated, or take your order to go.

    I had the chocolate lobster tail. It had a nice and crunchy exterior and the chocolate cream wasn’t too overwhelming.

    Historic Sicilian pastry shop. Very tasty but priced and packaged as a specialty so makes for a good gift or some other special treat.

    The rainbow cake is amazing. They only serve it on the weekends. If u like rainbow cookies thus is the dessert for you. The strawberry shortcake is also great!

    AMAZING! Too many options to chose from while standing under an enchanting stained glass ceiling. Go for the lobster roll, cheesecake or cannoli

    Established 1894. Continuously family owned and operated. Mostly original decor, extra room added in 1984 and the oven changed to gas. Famous for traditional Italian confections. Appears in TV shows.

    They have a dining area - windows open up in summer. Thought the tiramisu was just ok. A lot to choose from though here to find something outstanding! Worth a comeback.

    Loooove the cheesecakes both NY Cheesecake which is heavier and the Italian cheesecake which is much lighter. Lines are almost always long but flowing

    One day after purchasing, one slice left, kept in the refrigerator overnight but moldy strawberries the next day makes us question quality

    Old school deliciousness. It's like that place you used to go with your grandma. Comparable to Venetië on Rijnstraat in Amsterdam.

    The Torta Di Mandorle is possibly the best cake Veniero's offers. Enjoy it with coffee in the beautiful parlor with stained glass ceiling

    A real and honorable 'pasticceria italiana,' the best I've found in NYC, so far. I can't get enough of their mini cannoli! The tea cookies are also great! And their boxes, so simple and elegant!

    Veniero's has been around forever! Don't forget to pull a ticket and get your number by the entrance or you'll stand around for hours. Order a slice of strawberry shortcake- it's not even on display!

    Two occasions they did not give me the right pastries. it's not like you can really double check once you pay for the purchase because they tie it up right away. Still amazing pastries.

    Everybody says get this or that cake. I agree. But you MUST try the TARTUFO nutty ice creams w strawberry inside thin chocolate shell.
