Displayed alongside the cannoli and carrot cakes, the cheesecake slice at this Little Italy icon strikes the requisite balance of sour and sweet, adding Italian touches like ricotta and candied citrus peels into the mix. $5 for a slice

A trip to little Italy during the San Gennaro Feast is not complete if you don't make it to Ferrara Bakery & Cafe. They have delicious gelato in many flavors as well as one of a kind pastry items. The restaurant is clean and has a luminous vibe that makes dessert shopping a semi-permanent stop while you devour your cookie, gelato, piece of cake, etc. I have been there twice in the last week couple of weeks and already look forward to visiting again. They offer a very fresh traditional Italian bakery selection to a fast paced NYC clientele that will more than likely prefer dessert items on the go. Great customer service!!!! 


There's plentiful seating if you want to hide away over some delicious mocha with your girlfriends during a cold winter afternoon. Even though they're known for their delicious pastries and baked goods, we all agreed that this was some of the best hot chocolate we've had. All of their coffee drinks were well made and so deliciously paired with their sweets. 


Ferrara's is undoubtedly one of the most popular tourist places to hit in Little Italy, if not THE most popular. But the real winner there isn't the cannolis, it's the friggen LOBSTER TAIL. The pastry is unmatched, and the cream inside is ADDICTING. I'm no sugar freak, but I will go for a lobster tail from ferrara's ANY day.
