Good luck picking just one treat!

Oh, the options! This place has a large selection of sweet treats, pastries, cakes and just about anything that won't help your diet. :-) The pistachio cannolis & pistachio cookies are my favorites. Place is large and has plenty of room for you to sit back, enjoy your treat & a cup of coffee.

Such a great Italian restaurant. The desserts are amazing, I come here every time I have to bring dessert to a family gathering. I even buy dessert from here when Im craving a fruit tart or cannoli. The most recent times Ive come, there hasn't been any line which is my luck. If you go during holiday hours, you may... More

I have been going, as well as working for, Gerardo's Bakery for many years. My favorite pastry is their Lobster Tails! I have been to Italy numerous times, and this bakery comes as close to the pastry I have enjoyed in Italy! My husband loves their pine nut cookies, and also their cassattas. A nice touch is that they have... More

I have been here a few times and I find the quality of the baked goods and desserts to be very good. Prices seem reasonable for home made goodness. My favorite is the carrot cake.

As the title states...$28 for a 6 inch one layer cake?! I have always heard that Gerado's Italian Cream frosting is the best, not this time! The cake tasted like it was made a day earlier than pick up day and the frosting was crusty and not smooth as I expected. I should have paid the dollar for the box... More

I've said this before but this place rivals any dessert place in Boston's North End. It's a feast for the eyes when you walk in. The display case is about 30 feet long (give or take) and includes everything from cookies to cannolis. I also bought a Bailey's Irish Cream cake for a birthday party that was delicious. They also...

Had an early morning meeting. Requested an espresso and blueberry muffin. Both were AWESOME! The muffin was dense yet soft & moist. Wished the espresso came in a 'mug' size cup - lol. They have so many varieties of deserts that it makes it difficult to choose. However, you can not go wrong. Enjoy.
