After dinner at Asian Bistro we went to the old standard for dessert. Elegant, modern, with old world style and class.

Horrible, horrible customer service!! My husband wanted a cannoli cake for his birthday. We had a cannoli cake made several years back for our wedding but it was from Chimirri's and it was excellent. I decided to order from Mozziato's instead (don't know why). I called and told whomever I spoke to that my husband wanted a cannoli for his... More

The pastries, cakes, etc.. Are as good as it gets. The rum cake... Let's just say you can't stop at one slice. As one reviewer put it," scary neighborhood!" No doubt about that!!! The city of Hartford is to blame for all the blight and degenerates that p!$$ all over that city. Go there in the morning before the scummy,lazy,welfare,... More

My Grandfather, Father, Daughter, and I are loyal customers of Mozzicato. My Grandfather came to the United States in 1916, and use to tell me when he walked into that bakery it reminded him of the "old country". I wouldn't know about that but I do know the products at Mazzicato are outstanding. Italian cookies, Rum cakes, pastries, Pizza, spinach-sausage... More

We heard about this place and quickly came in before they closed. We managed to get some delicious chocolate covered cannoli, some exceptional fruitcake, a delicious mini apple pie, and a few cookies. This place is great to satisfy your sweet tooth in a pinch.

I will never understand why a landmark establishment will jump on the chain train. Wait, yes I do. If one is good then more is better??? Mozzicato's should be content with enjoying a great run on Franklin Ave, in what little is left of the Italian section of Hartford. My father purchased pastries for Christmas eve this year at the...

I've been buying desserts here for years. I've been to countless other Italian bakeries and none can compare to this one. The desserts are to die for. Whether i'm buying something familiar and favorable or trying something completely new I am never disappointed. The cafe they have is also great with an excellent bar.. I recommend the cappuccino cake in... More

As a NJ native, I have high standards for Italian bakeries. My Hartford friends overwhelmingly recommended this place, and I paid my first visit there the other day. I ordered three canoli, a sliced loaf of their Italian bread, and a few cream puffs. First the good: The canoli and cream puffs were delicious. They tasted fresh and the canoli... More

I'm obsessed with pastries. Give me baked goods and I'm a happy lady. However I had never had a cannoli and knew that when I decided to get one it had to be authentic and have great reviews. After hearing nothing but rave reviews I decided to stop by and try a cannoli. They were delicious even though I have... More
