Fodor's Review

Since 1894, this bustling bakery-café has sold every kind of Italian dolce (sweet), from cherry-topped cookies to creamy cannoli and flaky sfogliatelle (shell-shaped, filled pastry). Cheesecake lovers will rejoice in Veniero's version, which is slathered with ricotta instead of cream cheese. In all, the hungry visitor with a serious sweet tooth can choose from more than 150 different types of desserts. A wine license means you can top off an evening with

a bottle of red. Veniero's is worth a look, even if you're not hungry.

A classic

Get a box of assorted pastries or butter cookies to go here and it's hard to go wrong. Everything is good, and a few things (notably the napoleons) even rise to greatness. Take a number -- the wait won't be as long as you think, because service is efficient. Anyplace in New York that has been around for over 100 years is doing something right.

Old World Pastries

The atmosphere is wonderful Old New York. Sit at tiny wooden tables while you enjoy rich creamy sweet desserts that you know you shouldn't be having. Skip dessert at that East Village restaurant and walk over here instead.
