Little Italy in Gulf Gate

Just like Federal Hill in Providence, RI. Exceptional pizza strips, great breads and sweets. Don't forget to look in the refrigerator as they sometimes have a batch of pasta fagioli or great meatballs in sauce. A truly great find.

This bakery is consistent, the staff and owner are excellent! Reminds me of an old school Italian-American bakery back in NYC. If you haven't already, try the cheeseless pizza bread. It's amazing and tastes similar to the one I have in Rome whenever I go work.

quaint Italian bakery is loaded with a large selection cookies, breads, cakes and pies. Also have strombolis pre-made ready to take hoe and heat up. We really love this little bakery. Can get crowded at times and parking can be a challenge

This is your quintessential Italian bakery! They are the only place I now get cannolis and I try only to travel past them after I know they are closed, it is the only thing that keeps me out of this place. The worst thing past the weight I have gained is trying to figure out what to get. So far... More

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

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
