I grew up living around the co...

I grew up living around the corner from Rocco's. I have very fond memories of great times with me and my family there. I wish that I could order a dozen cannoli's for next day delivery, since I live in Tampa,FL. I have been to many different bakeries in Florida, and in the eight years I have been here I have not found one even close to compare.

Best cannoli in NYC - end of story!

The atmosphere can be a bit rushed - but this place has the best cannoli in NYC. Trust me...I have tried them all over the city and this is the winner!

Example: great place for good bread

everything looks amazing and the cheesecake was so tasty. The only drawbacks were it took a while to order and even longer to pay.

Best Service is not good business

Went to Rocco's at just before noon on a Friday to buy some pastries. The place was empty. I stood at the counter for 10 minutes and no one came over to help me. There was an male employee behind the counter having a coffee and pastry who looked at me and then kept eating. The waitress was talking on her cellphone the whole time. I guess they do so much business they can afford to ignore customers. I went to the bakery directly across the street on Bleeker and got some wonderful pastries and the staff were very nice.

Excellent italian pastries!!

I have been going to Rocco's for many years and I have to say it is one of the best places in NYC to get Italian pastries. Everything is homemade and the Cannoli's are hand filled to order. They also have the best homemade Italian ices in the summer. If you are in the area (Bleeker and Carmine) definitely give it a try!

best looking worst tasting food EVER!

The place was empty on a Saturday morning which should have said something, but the window displays had me hooked. The looks of the food put any patessiere in France to shame. $25.00 worth of goods later and I couldn't have been more dissapointed. The black and whites, fruit tart, eclaires, rum custard puffs and cheese cakes were HORRIBLE! The only good thing about this place was the recomendation for Famous Joes Pizza around the corner. I would walk to Brooklyn to eat at Juniors before I crossed the street to Rocco

Great desserts in Greenwich Village

I've only been to Rocco once, but wow! It took me forever to decide what to get because everything looked so good. I finally picked what could best be described as a tiramisu parfait, and as I had hoped, it was delicious. I was also surprised at the prices- it was much cheaper than I thought it would be when I walked in. It's down the street from Magnolia, and honestly, you get much more for your money here. I'll definitely be going back!

Yummy cookies and best coffee

This is one of my recent favorite cookie place in the city... their pistachio biscotti and the chocolate cake is worth trying... also they know how to make your coffee just right...

amazing bakery but..

the service was a bit rude. i was visiting with a group from school. a few of us decided to go in for a snack. i was in line with some friends and they skipped us and went on to someone else behind us! it wasn't like they were busy but they could have pretended to be a bit happier.. well when it was my turn to order, the one lady actually became kind to me and it actually made me happy as well! probably since i'm an overall happy person, i was smiling and being kind in return which i think she may have a been a bit surprised by! but in my opinion, i think they are just overly busy or tired! which makes them not as happy as they could be but that shouldn't stop anyone from visiting this place since they have amazing pastries! and the gelato was yummy! there was a huge variety to choose from! i'm not sure how to compare it to other bakeries but for the price which was actually super cheap.. i loved it! a pastery and a cup of gelato costed me less than $3!

but to shorten this, just be kind to the staff even if they seem rude!

Their service ruins your appetite

Finding a table can be a true feat at this pasticceria. We waited for over 25 minutes to be able to flag down a waiter so we could finally put in our order. Then, he told he was simply too busy to take our order.

Best cannoli ever!

Rocco's has a classic and delicious selection of italian pastries. For $3.50 you can have a large cannoli with chocolate chips and a cafe latte -- by far one of the best deals around. I can't believe people can still go to S'Bucks with a place like this around. Despite Marjorie's comments, the table service is a great deal, too. It's just that pricing for table service is different than pricing for take-out. Thus, if you order take out, you can't just plop yourselves down in the seating area. The policy might not make sense to everybody, but it is certainly clearly posted in several locations.

Stale cookies, stale service!

A group of my friends wanted to get dessert early in the evening. Rocco didn't look busy and had pleanty of seating. Overall the pasteries looked delicious and the coffee smelled fresh. Most of them bought a cone of gelato and as we sat in the almost empty restraunt we were rudly told that we could only sit if we had bought a pastery and were asked to leave that moment. I'm not exaggerating when I say that the entire staff was impatient and rude. We left and ended up sitting on the steps of church around the corner. To make the experience of the bakery a total dissapointment, the cookies were stale to boot!

Good cannoli but not the best

Pastries are good but not near as good as some Brooklyn pastry shops. The best cannoli's, pastry selections & cakes come from Brooklyn.

Must save room for cheese cake!

This is a great place for a nice cheese cake, coffee, or cookies.

A Gem

If your on a diet - stay clear. Irresistible! The cannoilis are the best I've ever had. A very dangerous place.

The best pastries in NYC

The best canolies in NYC they fill them when you order them. Discovered this on a food tour of Greenwich Village. This is the place the guys on the apprentice on NBC got thier lemonade cups from. The desserts are delicious and adds to the character of NYC. Must visit this place if go to NYC. It is surrounded by many other neighborhood shops serving delicious food.

Little Sicily

I have to say, I have had quite a few cannolis in my time. And I have yet to find one that even comes close to the cannoli's I've had in Sicily. But, I have to say, the cannoli's at Rocco's are the best I have had since then. THE BEST!!!
