A LITTLE PIECE OF ITALIAN HEAVEN

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.

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!

I've been to bakeries in Boston's Italian section and this beats them all! Best of everything! Pizza dough! Wedding cake! Never been disappointed. Not a chain and it shows, a real family shop.

It looked so good when i walked in. I though "Damn, I'm in trouble! " Because I have a HUGE sweet tooth:-) I bought a lot of different cakes, cookie, pastries ( tiramisu cake, rum cake, eclair,some mint cream things). Absolutely everything tasted bad. I only had a bite or two of everything and threw it away. Waste of money.

was pretty disappointed with the bday cake I picked on Thursday. I was expecting a rum cake with sponge cake. what we got was a dry pound cake. lightly frosted with whipped cream. and the filling was so limited and thin. as was the fruit peach slice and strawberry slice. my first time there, so sad it is my last.....
