Bakery is not so good. Been disappointed with the quality of their products many times. Stopped going there a while ago. I'm Italian and I think I know good Italian pastry when I see it and I don't see it at Gerardo's. Many of my family and friends don't care for it either. Not terrible, but, you can do a... More

This bakery is definitely worth a stop by at. They have such a huge variety of treats, and all for reasonable prices too. There's a nice seating area inside as well. My partner and I stopped by to pick up an assorted box of cannollis for an event we were going to, and they were delicious. My partner and I... More

If you are craving cookies, go here. Hands down it is the best place for cookies in the USA. We live across the country, and this is a destination stop for us when we visit Massachusetts.

A wonderful bakery with lots of choices including bite size goodies. Always walk out with more than planned, or you can sit and enjoy a cup of coffee with your purchases.

The assortment of pastries is beautifully displayed and even better- tastes delicious. I was tempted by everything. It was so hard to make a choice. The coffee was free with a purchase. Great idea to go there after a movie, or stop after a shopping spree for one final splurge. The very new, sleek serving and wait area has another... More

First impression was Wow. Lots of pastries, cookies and cakes. The added balcony overhead from the function room added to the Italian feel. The prices are not cheap but normal for this level of pastries. I loved their cannolis. Great place for a weekend break. Grab a goodie, free coffee and relax.
