In need of cassata

I just got back from Sicily, and am pining for cassata. Is there anywhere in manhattan (or in another burrough) where I can get my hands on this sinful treat?

  1. Villabate Pasticceria in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. They make cassatas and mini cassatas. A sign there says they import their ricotta from Palermo. I had their mini cassata and it was fabulously sinful--not as good as the cassatas I had in Sicily, but still pretty good. They had many other pastries from Sicily as well, and beautiful pasta reale.
