This bakery is awesome, they have lots to choose from. I original went to the bakery counter they have in Bolton, MA. But it is just a counter and pickup for cakes and etc. I wanted more of a selection and I had ordered a Birthday Cake/St. Patrick's Cake and wanted more to choose from. I was not disappointed. The...

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.

I stop in often to pick up treats to bring when gathering with my girlfriends. We are never disappointed. I've also purchased their birthday cakes and been very happy. I don't however recommend the coffee. The espresso is overpriced and the regular coffee is bitter and tastes old.

This place really has eye catching bling, but the pastries could benefit from real whipped cream vs. the "italian creme" , whatever that is. It tastes like Crisco and sugar .The cashier was evasive when I asked her if they use real cream in their cream puffs. She didn't even know. A dessert goes down a notch when real cream... More

We went to Gerardo's Saturday before Christmas to pick-up some of the "Italian" Christmas Cookies - everyone seems to rave about. Gerardo's had them all pre-packaged in beautifully decorated trays - in various sizes ready for purchase. However, we were dissapointed as all of the cookies, although looking slightly different (Chocolate, green, white) all tasted exactly the same! There were... More
