    I have visited a couple much to look at. But I stick to the mini cannoli or custard filled pies or tarts...delicate pastry and the cannoli are my favorite.

    A really good bakery! Their cassata are really good and so far this is the only place in NYC where I found them! The cannoli are also excellent

    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

    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.

    The cannoli and sfogliatelle are arguably better than Ferrara.
