I was having a "food memory" today... quickly followed by a craving that only could be fulfilled by bread and sfogiatelli and other pastry

(my most favorite Uncle lived in the area, and when he'd come to visit, he'd bring a car full of treats from this location)

I tried to go on their website, but "google" is blocking it due to suspcious activity

"malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent."

:-(

does anyone here know if they ship?

    I'm 95% sure. You could call them?

      VILLABATE has recently redone their entire website, and is now on Facebook.
      I can report they are better than ever! The centerpiece for our dessert table at our Christmas Day Open House buffet for 50 was an enormous Christmas Village gingerbread house from Villabate. It was gorgeous & delicious. We also had a Bûche de Noël (Yule Log) of their Gelato, a giant Cassata which was so gorgeous, people hesitated to cut it. It was outstanding. They import their sheep's milk ricotta fresh from Sicily. Also tiered trays of cookies and mini pastries.
      I highly recommend VILLABATE. They are wonderful people to deal with. They take great pride in their product, and it us worth a trip just for an expresso or cappuccino.

        Side note: What's up with the liquor bottles near the cash register. Can you actually order a cafe corretto? Is it just for regulars? Sometimes you just need a splash of extra warmth, especially if you're trudging there by train from downtown.
