Gerardo's is a bakery that tempts you with its smells the moment that you walk in. They have a huge variety of items in their case but they specialize in Italian goodies of all kinds. They have cakes, canolis, cookies, and petit fours all the way to fresh bread and dipping sauce. They have multiple tables inside so you can... More

I really love some of the desserts! For me those are well worth it. I've been to ths bakery any times and probably will be many more. I love the cannoli dip and riccota squares. The cakes however are pretty hit or miss. We've had the chocolate cannoli cake and it was amazing. Had it again and it was terrible.... More

The owner of Gerardo's verbalized that his wedding cakes were the "cheapest", but this really showed through in the taste. The wedding cake icing tasted similar to artificial whip cream, which was disappointing and strange because their pastries are usually great. Before my meeting with the shop owner, Gerardo, I saw him jokingly raise the back of his hand to... More

I like the dessert I got; double chocolate. I also got some cannoli (great but not excellent). I also bought some cookies and there were delicious. The place it self, is a beautiful place to have a dessert. The only thing I didn't like is some of the employees. Some of those girls think they are in a "Public Market"... More

Great selection, great service, excellent baked goods. Sometimes you will find you will wait in line, but it is worth the wait. The baked goods are excellent and always fresh. The Italian cookies are amazing.

I have been visiting this bakery for several years and everything by far exceeds my expectations! The cannolis' are fantastic and the flour less chocolate cake is a bonus treat for my dear friend who must have gluten free desserts. My favorite is the mile high chocolate cake and the chocolate dipped almond cookies and macaroons!!! Visit Ollie's for dinner... More

One of the few times I decided to call and complain about the cake I bought and the owner called me back to argue that his cake was perfect. Both my daughter,on her Bday, and I had stomach issues from the cake.Owner said he would give money back then changed his mind and said he'd give us and a cake.... More

All of the pastries from Gerardo's Bakery are wonderful. Their "lobster tails" pastry is excellent, as well as cakes and tortes. I also enjoy the fact that you can stop by for a free coffee, to enjoy with your favorite dessert.

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
