Don't go to Ferara's in Little Italy. That is an overpriced tourist trap. Not to say Veniero's is not touristy. However, it at least is reasonably priced and its lighting doesn't blind you when you walk in.
I love their cheesecake, Italian cookies and their tiramisu. This place always has people waiting in line but I don't mind since I live 1 block away!
Their cannolis are not bad but not the best I have had.

Whenever I find myself in the area, I cannot resist a visit to Veniero's Pastry Shop. They have gotten a bit pricey in recent years but there pastries are very good. My favorite is the chocolate coated cannoli. The shell is dipped in chocolate and filled with cannoli cream and chocolate chips. The shell is crunchy - as it should be - and not soggy. Truly a mouth watering treat. When you enter the store be certain to take a number. When your number is called, order and enjoy!

I was anxious to challenge Veniero's NY style cheesecake being declared the NUmber One cheesecake, until my recenr visit. I am ""NOT WORTHY"" to challenge the well earned awards displayed in their showcase, but I am ready to re-visit a great trip down the smooth,rich and creamy path to cheesecake heaven. As the governator of caly-fornia would say when it comes to Veniero's "" I'LL BE BAACK !!!!!!!!!! ""

My family has a tradition of having cheesecakes for Thanksgiving dessert, and yet again this year Veniero's did not disappoint. We had one regular italian cheesecake and one pumpkin and both were delicious, though my favorite is always the original. Family members from Chicago were so impressed they were wondering if they deliver all the way out there. Thanks again for another tasty Thanksgiving!

I used to live across the street from Veniero's and I go there a lot. But yesterday I went to buy a fruit tart pie. It was super disappointing. I got home and find a mold strawberry on my tart. I was so upset. I was waiting months to go get one and I finally did and it was bad. So look out, on the fruit stuff. The cluster inside wasn't has soft it was hard like left overs. =( I was so sad. Veniero's used to be soo good. But now it's just good not the best. But so far I still haven't find any place that's better then Veniero's.

Just to try and set the record straight to all those who don't know pastry shops outside of Manhattan the best cannoli in NYC is from Villabate on 18th Ave. in Bensonhurst. The owners are from sicily & the ricotta is flown in from sicily & shells are thin & crispy. That being said yes Veniero's does make good cookies, NY & Italian style cheesecakes, pastries and assorted specialty cakes. I like the Italian cheese cake and rum cake sheets sitting on the counter you can have them cut to order, no need to purchase a whole cake and they are always fresh. The apple pie is delicious, crust is thin and apples are not too sweet and spiced just right.

I tried to place on order on the website for Cannolis and the website was having real problems. I called in and asked for help, they said I would have to speak to Paula. I continued to have problems only now it wasing duplicate order when in fact the first order was completed with the incorrect credit card number. I called back in to speak to Paula, I explained my situation- she first rudely suggested that the problem was with my credit card company and that I should call them.
I graciously explained my problem again and she said that someone handles the web orders and she couldn't fix it. After some discussion she hesistated but offered to cancel the original order with the wrong number. She needed the order number- Well do to the website not responding no order number came up. She rudely refused to help me without this number.
I finally told her to forget the whole thing. Paula is one rude, unhelpful service person for sure.
Avoid this place for Cannoli delivery- the service is terrible.
