The cannoli's are amazing, and all the other pastries I don't know the name of are just as great. True original, authentic old school Italian pastries. It's a New Haven gem that I hope remains for many more years!

There is no Wooster Street evening that is complete without ending up at Libby's. Cappuccino, Gelato, and a million cookies and cannoli to choose from. Table service and counter service. The best.

The minute you walk in you can definitely feel the family atmosphere of this place. The kids wanted some gelato. The chocolate flavor was my favorite, followed by pistachio and lastly strawberry. The strawberry was my least favorite because it was too sweet. We took...More
