Best bakery in Sarasota

This is hands down the best general bakery in the Sarasota area. The Italian creme cake may be the best cake on earth.

It's pricey but that doesn't bother me when it's awesome, so it wasn't awesome just good. We bought a little of many items to try them. The pizza was overcooked, it seemed many items were a bit overdone. The calzone was also. Those had great flavor but if you wanted to heat it up then it got burnt because it... More

Being Italian and having eaten numerous cannolis over my life, I was excited after reading the reviews on here to try this place out. But after getting home and eating the cannolis we bought I was sadly disappointed. The taste of the cannoli filling was horrible and a far cry from being a "good" cannoli. Let alone great or amazing.... More

This little shop, tucked into a conveniently located shopping strip, is one of our regular stops in Sarasota. Every thing you get here will be the best of its kind you've ever eaten. This visit I finally tried the biscotti, dipped in coffee this is a vacation all on its own.

Wonderful Italian pastry and bread. Some of the best pignoli cookies I ever had. Great selection of goodies including some you only see regionally.

As soon as we walked in the door we knew we were in trouble. How could we choose just a few pieces of the gorgeous pastries displayed and not take one of everything. The pizza was delicious as were the zeppola, svuliadelle (spelling?) a cream pastry shaped like a clam shell, cocoanut cake. The owner was there who is from... More

Was excited to find Italian Bakery near home. First trip was a joy. I bought cannoli's for all my neighbors to encourage them to patronize Paisano's. Last trip I was the only customer in the store. But clearly should have known exactly what I wanted before I walked in. The woman,was impatient. Seemed I was wasting her time. I thought... More

In Sarasota, on the way to Siesta Key beach and have a taste for some great Italian breads and pastries? This local area bakery has been consistently serving up tasty treats for years. We always stop on the way to the beach and pick up some treats to take along!
