Wandered around the city and decided I wanted something sweet. I got a table for one & ordered strawberry shortcake, vanilla gelato & a lemonade. Everything was delicious! I wish there was more cake to the shortcake but otherwise it was delicious! I truly enjoyed my stop in.

We stopped in for a little espresso and a dessert after a wonderful Italian meal at a nearby restaurant, and our waitress was indifferent, unhelpful and seemed to be annoyed to be employed. Our trays waited at the counter while the espresso got cold, and only then she did she finally feel behooved to deliver it. No water was offered and she added a tip presumptuously. The desserts were tasty and would have been better enjoyed to-go.

The prices were steep but the cannolis were awesome!

Don't let these jaded New Yorker reviews stop you from going here! These locals don't know how good they have it. This place is busy so try to arrive early--like before noon. The desserts are great and the coffee is very good--not Starbuck variety and lots of choices. Expect to pay $10--$15 a head, but where else do you go in NY for that price? Lots of fun especially for us tourists.

There is no point for a NYer to go to this Tourist attraction. The gellato is OK and totally overpriced. 8.25 for three scoops...omg that is insane. you should see the scoops. The desserts looked and tasted average and I think they are served from days before. I will certainly not go back, especially for a $6 cup of hot cocoa powder.

I'm a New Yorker for starters. I have eaten in NYC restaurants and cook as well. I found the prices to be overly expensive and the quality to be average at best. The prices are twice as high as Le Bella Ferrara ( Mulberry and Canal ) and the service by Ferrara Cafe is nothing to write home about. You can be certain that I will not pay another visit here. It is a tourist trap.

We found Ferrara's by accident. Since it was not yet time for lunch, we decided to stop for dessert. The pastrys and ice cream were good. There was a wide array of desserts and gellato flavors. However, everything was just average. A family of seven had sodas and dessert for $60. If you decide to go, make sure to avoid the two tour busses that come each day. When they arrive, things get crowded.
