Authentic Italtian Bakery

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.....

Being a Canadian from an Italian background, I was looking for an authentic Italian bakery. Well, let me tell you that the baguette was nice and crunchy, the ricotta filled cannoli's were to die for and the chocolate covered jumbo eclair just heavenly. Great customer service and great location too. Definitely going back for more............. :)

This place has both great bakery and regular food items. I'm a native Rhode Islander, as are the owners. There are a lot of Italian's in RI, so there are a lot of great italian restaurants in RI. That's one thing we missed when we moved here. This place has REAL italian food/bakery items. The egg biscuts are to die... More

I recently made a drive to Sarasota especially to go to this bakery. I love Italian Pastry. Being from Ct, it was a childhood staple. Well I spent $75.00 on old, dry, inedible pastries. From the lobster tails, to the pasticiottis, to the squished naploleans, everything was horrible. If it wasn't so far 3 hr drive..I would have brought it... More

Whenever family from RI comes, we have to make a stop here for the RI style strip pizza....no cheese, just a thick pizza crust slathered with sauce...if you know RI strip pizza, this will be a stop you'll want to make. We love it! The desserts are delicious too.

We have been frequenting Paisano's in the past for their wonderful Italian pastries. Imagine my disappointment when the 8" rum birthday cake (usually exquisite) was served to find that it was quite dry seeming to have been perhaps sitting around for a few days? This review would have been worse had it not been for previous purchases that were far... More
