Rocco's was at one time the best, but the bakery has given in to the Yuppie crowd that wasn't even born in NY. I would have given Rocky and the rest of the crew at Rocco's God like status, but now to find an all chocolate linzer cookie or checkerboard cookie anywhere in NYC is impossible. Rocco's was the last place to go for the traditional NY cookie menu, until recently. Now the cookie quality is down & the native NYer is long forgotten. Kind of wants me to take all the money I spent for the last 35 years at Rocco's back. Not to mention, tell the non natives that have taken over that they don't have a clue what they missed.

On a recent visit to NYC we decided to drop in here after reading rave reviews. Our experience was better than we expected. The coffeehouse has a cozy glass roofed parlour at the back. The glass cases are filled with an assortment of goodies...wish i could try all. Service was efficent. The Italian Cannoli and Rum Babas were very very good. Even the Cappucino was amongst the best i've had. A definite MUST when visiting this side of town.

I just got back from NY and this is the second time that I have been to Rocco's...This is a fabulous place! The black and white cookies are the very BEST in NY, and the cannoli's are to die for...Everything in the bakery is top notch...Take a cab to this place, if you are not near, as it is absolutely worth it...This is New York's BEST!!!!!!!!!

We always stop here for coffee and cake every time we're in the city. Either after a play or just shopping. The best way to end the day. Everything I've ever had here, I've never been sorry!

What a find! A lively neighborhood, cosy eaterie atmosphere and delicious desserts. It is my favorite pattisserie in New York and I keep returning for more. I highly recommend the tiramisu cup and the acadia (a berry/chocolate dessert).

There is no shortage of Italian pastry shops in NY, but Rocco's is my fave. They have all the traditional pastries and cookies I knew growing up (my grandfather made pastries in Manhattan and LI), as well as french style pastries, cheesecake, etc. Gelato, too. Oh, and there's a full selection of mini-pastry, in case you feel like trying a cannoli AND a rum baba. If you're like me, you're not thinking of dieting and have about five mini ones! They have sit-down and take-out service, and I've always found the people pleasant. Great coffee, too. You'll be amazed by the store-length, glass display case that holds the pastry (you can see it at the website, I think). If you're someone like me who drinks your coffee black and wants real pastry with your joe, try Rocco's. You'll never go to Starbucks again.
