Been around for since 1894. Must get a cannoli. Large selection of desserts.
They make the best strawberry shortcake that every existed! It's packed with fresh pieces of strawberry amidst the light, fluffy layers of whipped cream... My family continues to enjoy many birthdays with this cake...
Best cannolis in NYC – I love a lot of things in this shop but their cannolis are by far the best I have ever had.
Old Fashioned Italian Pastry Shop – Don't go to Ferara's in Little Italy. That is an overpriced tourist trap. Not to say Veniero's is not touristy. However, it at least is reasonably priced and its lighting doesn't blind you when you walk in.
I love their cheesecake, Italian cookies and their tiramisu. This place always has people waiting in line but I don't mind since I live 1 block away!
Their cannolis are not bad but not the best I have had.
Mouth Watering – Whenever I find myself in the area, I cannot resist a visit to Veniero's Pastry Shop. They have gotten a bit pricey in recent years but there pastries are very good. My favorite is the chocolate coated cannoli. The shell is dipped in chocolate and filled with cannoli cream and chocolate chips. The shell is crunchy - as it should be - and not soggy. Truly a mouth watering treat. When you enter the store be certain to take a number. When your number is called, order and enjoy!
Really GREAT! – I bought the Tiramisu cake and cannolis and baba rum, I was so impressed. Me and 2 family members ate the entire Tiramisu cake in one night thats how good it is.
I will be coming back here often
A Tradition – I have been coming here for many years and the quality has been consistent. I always get the fruit topped cream pie for birthday celebrations
Numero uno cheesecake – I was anxious to challenge Veniero's NY style cheesecake being declared the NUmber One cheesecake, until my recenr visit. I am "NOT WORTHY" to challenge the well earned awards displayed in their showcase, but I am ready to re-visit a great trip down the smooth,rich and creamy path to cheesecake heaven. As the governator of caly-fornia would say when it comes to Veniero's " I'LL BE BAACK !!!!!!!!!! "
Still the Best – Hi Everyone,
My family has a tradition of having cheesecakes for Thanksgiving dessert, and yet again this year Veniero's did not disappoint. We had one regular italian cheesecake and one pumpkin and both were delicious, though my favorite is always the original. Family members from Chicago were so impressed they were wondering if they deliver all the way out there. Thanks again for another tasty Thanksgiving!
Surprised Fruits – I used to live across the street from Veniero's and I go there a lot. But yesterday I went to buy a fruit tart pie. It was super disappointing. I got home and find a mold strawberry on my tart. I was so upset. I was waiting months to go get one and I finally did and it was bad. So look out, on the fruit stuff. The cluster inside wasn't has soft it was hard like left overs. =( I was so sad. Veniero's used to be soo good. But now it's just good not the best. But so far I still haven't find any place that's better then Veniero's.
Good But Not The Best Cannoli – Just to try and set the record straight to all those who don't know pastry shops outside of Manhattan the best cannoli in NYC is from Villabate on 18th Ave. in Bensonhurst. The owners are from sicily & the ricotta is flown in from sicily & shells are thin & crispy. That being said yes Veniero's does make good cookies, NY & Italian style cheesecakes, pastries and assorted specialty cakes. I like the Italian cheese cake and rum cake sheets sitting on the counter you can have them cut to order, no need to purchase a whole cake and they are always fresh. The apple pie is delicious, crust is thin and apples are not too sweet and spiced just right.
