I'll bet he was thinking about Ferrara when, in The Godfather, Clemenza famously said, "Leave the guns--take the cannoli." Sometimes I, too, feel a burning need for a taste of the old country. So I'll wind my down the crowded streets of Little Italy and face-plant into a luscious ricotta-filled cannolo at this NYC institution. Now anyone can experience the greatness!

Since opening their doors in 1892, Ferrara Bakery has been a staple in the heart of New York City’s Little Italy, producing what many believe to be the finest Italian desserts in the country. Enrico Scoppa and Antonio Ferrara opened “Café A. Ferrara” over a century ago and their descendants are still involved, five generations later. As America’s first pasticceria and espresso bar, it was only natural that people came primarily for the coffee, cookies and cakes, and despite the many changes in the neighborhood over the decades, their offerings are still wowing everyone who walks through the door, instantly transporting them to Southern Italy.

We're not the only ones who love them!
