I stopped in to Giovanni's while in Connecticut on travel. This is an EXCELLENT bakery. After trying a couple of their cookies, I purchased a few to take home for family to try also.

I went in and had a special request for my mom's birthday. Spoke to the owner he said bring in a picture and we will make it happen. I did and when I went there it was done and mom was amazed it was delicious. My whole family enjoyed the Napoleon cake.

Don't go anywhere else!! Just don't! Best canoli, best cakes, best everything!! They don't skimp or over charge. You always know what you are going to get when you go there and they are the only bakery my family uses.

Having lived in the south end of Hartford's Little Italy for several years, I have sampled every Franklin Avenue's bakery fare.

When it comes to Italian fruit cakes, nobody makes them like Giovanni's! The strawberries and peaches are always plentiful and the whipped creme frosting is not too sweet and always fresh and tasty!
