Traditional Sicilian gelato, spumoni, cannoli, pastries, and candies are the attractions at this quaint little sweetshop, now over a century old. The crisp biscotti, traditional Sicilian desserts, and the lemon and strawberry ices haven't lost their status as local favorites. The shop closes at 10 pm weekdays (closed Monday), 10:30 pm Fridays and Saturdays, and 9 pm on Sundays. Plan to stand in line and chat with mostly locals. On your way out, look for the brass plaque
on the door that marks how high the water reached after the levees failed in 2005.

Delicious Italian desserts. Gelato, fruit ices, cream puffs, Napoleons, cookies and fresh made cannolis. Cappuchinos. The reviewer below me is nuts! The only reason you wouldn't like this place is if you don't like ice cream and cake.
