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!

Rocco's makes the best turtle cheesecake I've ever eaten. Their cannolis and eclairs are divine, as well. Whenever I get the pleasure to visit New York, they make it onto my itinerary.

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

Pros: amazing cakes

Cons: slow service

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.

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!

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

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!

Cons: maybe it could be open a little later on weekends

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!

Stopped by on a random weekday afternoon w/ a friend. She got tiramisu & coffee, I had cheesecake & hot cocoa... Everything was great, especially the hot cocoa! Cute setting, nice atmosphere.

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.

Pros: no idea - couldn't place my order

Cons: RUDE SERVICE

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.

Rocco Pastry Shop makes a really mean cup of java. So is there gelato. Hits the spot on a hot summer day. I like to sit outside and enjoy my gelato on really nice days. It's one of the better pastry shops in the Village. The staff is always friendly to you and the prices are won't break your wallet. I give it two thumbs up.

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!

This is a wonderful place to stroll by as you're hanging out around Greenwich Village. Very authentic Italian cookies, pastries and cakes. I especially like their pignoli.

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

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.

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!!!

I've eaten black and white cookies all over the world and by far Rocco's has the BEST! The pastries are delicious but if you had to choose one thing, it's the Black-n-Whites that brings me back year after year.

Although the pasteries look and taste great, the service could be a lot better. We were very rudely helped by one of the workers and after we decided to take our stuff to go, we were told to leave. Perhaps it was a miscommunication because we were'nt decided on what we wanted, but the place wasn't busy and I think we're entitled to take a few minutes to decide. Well we wont be going back!

I'd heard great things about Veniero's, after going to Rocco's, I was less than impressed. Rocco's has a great selection, good quality, and friendly service - and, unlike Veniero's, they don't fill your cannoli until you order them.

Another plus - it's across the street from John's Pizzeria. What could be a better night out than Manhattan's best pizza, followed up with creamy cannolis from Rocco's?

I went in to get some miniature eclairs and asked for a baker's dozen. The girl said it'd be about $7.50. I ended up getting 14 miniature eclairs and one slice of turtle cheesecake for $7.50. Not bad at all! Both were great! I had actually asked the girl to give me a slice of her favorite cheesecake, and she beamed a smile at me. I asked which was her favorite and she said, "Turtle, of course." I understand why -- it was wonderful!

You'll most likely have to wait in line to get into Rocco's, for its selection of almond pignoli cookies, potent babas au rhum, crunchy anise biscotti and freshly-piped cannoli is scrumptious. In addition to traditional Italian pastries,…
