Philadelphia, PA Cafe and Bakery- La Bella Dolce Italia

  • review rating 5  Very friendly owners, we had a nice chat over the soccer match that was playing on their TV. Their cannoli is freshly filled and man, it was probably one of the best cannolis we've ever had! The filling was so tasty and, for lack of a better word, tender. And it was very affordable!

    review rating 4  My first time coming to this cafe and I was pleasantly surprised how great this place is. I came in around 11am on a Saturday, slightly chilly outside, and I instantly felt warm and cozy as soon as I came in. I was greeted by two employees, a man and a woman who immediately asked if I needed help with anything and then I ordered a standard cappuccino and two cannolis. While the woman was preparing the cappuccino, I asked the man to surprise me and he chose an almond cannoli and a dark chocolate cannoli. Once my order was complete, I paid for it and sat at a nearby table. I started with the cannoli while I waited for the cappuccino to cool down. Both the almond and dark chocolate were amazing! I'm not one to really like sweet food and I certainly haven't tried many cannoli's in my lifetime, but these two were delicious. Not overly sweet and the cream was well made. Overall crunchy and satisfying! In case you're wondering I got the mini ones which were a good pair for the cappuccino. As for the cappuccino, wow, this was awesome! I've tried cappuccinos in London about a month ago and those were amazing too, but this right here was simply delicious. Perfectly foamy at top with a warm and soothing finish. I couldn't have asked for anything better. To wrap it up, I highly recommend this cafe. The employees were nice, the environment was warm and cozy and of course the most important part, the food was well worth the time and money. Please do pay a visit! PS: some of the other customers were Italian too and were speaking Italian which almost made it feel like you were truly in Italia. I loved it and will be coming back soon! PSS: I give this place 4 stars because it would be wrong of me to rate this 5 stars without having tried a bevy of other cafes (which could be better or worse). However this cafe is still well worth your money so please do come! It's also a good date spot if you choose to bring someone with you!

    review rating 5  I complimented the owner on their ice-cream, he replied with well deserved pride and I quote, “it’s gelato!” I’m addicted to this place, nothing seems to match their quality ever since.

    review rating 5  Loved it - good servings and host loved to see us eat ... solid lunches and desserts - the plates were rectangular and could be bigger to better complement portion sizes. Wonderful staff
