WITHOUT QUESTION the BEST Italian pastries in the WORLD. I am Italian American, have lived in NYC my whole life, have been to Italy many times, and NO ONE makes better cannoli (or cake!) than Fortunato's.

I have been going to Fortunato Brothers for the last 4 years, one of my girlfriends introduce me to this bakery, her school is near and they get their bakery goods from there. Since then I have been a Fan. When my daughter and granddaughter came in from Texas I took them there and they fell in love with the place, especially the homemade gelato!!!!!!
I have introduced so many people to your eatery.
thank you for making my sweet tooth great.

I initially heard about this place from my boyfriend who said that this particular bakery had the best french style dessert popularly named "thousand leaves". I decided to order the cake despite how far away it is from my house and when I got there a very police gentleman opened the door as I walked through and all the girls in the place were super sweet. They were all very helpful and polite. Later on that night I surpised my boyfriend with his favorite cake and to my surprise this cake was so delicious. The flaky layers were crisp and perfect. The chocolate and vanilla creme fillings were devine and the chocolate shavings on top of the cake simply melted in your mouth. All in all this cake was amazing and the people were sweet. I'll be sure to go back!

Pros: Known for their "Thousand Leaves" cake

Cons: none

Old men playing checkers and sipping espressos, long counters of cakes soaked with rum,pignioli cookies that are crispy on the edges and chewy in the middle, homemade gelati by the dozen.
Family run for longer than 30 years and still uphold the standards of the old world.

Used to travel all the way back to my old neighborhood in the bronx until I found this place.
By far the best cookies and cakes around.

this is a real neighborhood hangout. I love this place. Great espresso and real Italian treats. I'm not sure what that other person was talking about regarding the gelatti, as far as NY is concerned their gelatti is pretty great. My favorite dessert is their plain large Ba ba; A rum soaked cake. So delicious. I have not tried their cakes but I will and I have a feeling it will make me very happy. Fortunato Bros. is a real Williamsburg hot spot, I feel very lucky to live three blocks away. Don't hesitate to try this place, its great.

I love this place, the mango gillato is amazing. As is the Black Forest Cake, the espresso, and the mocha cookie sandwich. The people watching is great too, stop by around 8 pm on any given night and there is always an interesting local crowd.

Pros: Gillato, Cake, Coffee

My friend owns a shop in the area and she always gets the birthday cake there...hands down the most delicious cake ever! Real buttercream, real strawberries, real bananas (real fatty too, I'm sure) but well worth the risk. Love it.

This place used to have wonderful, intensely flavored gelato. No more. I suspect that they have begun to buy their gelato from a factory rather than making it themselves.
The coffees and the pastries are nice, however, and the atmosphere is wonderful.
