This is my go-to bakery for cakes, pastries and other baked goods. I especially liked the chocolate covered cheesecake bomb which I brought to my friends' house where it got rave reviews from all. My family loves their pastries and cannolis. Bakery always very clean.

too many good things to say...butter cookies (great), fresh stuffed cannoli's (great), 'lobster tails' (awesome...you can tell they use a canolli cream / mascapone cheese mixture to fill them). Also highly recommend their rainbow cookie cake as well as their tiramisu in a cup.

When you walk in - the place is sweet and inviting. Bistro tables and chairs and nice display cases. I've been here twice. Once for coffee and sweets with a friend and the 2nd visit was to purchase a cake. The cookies and pastries just taste old and stale, obviously not made on-site. And if they are made on-site.. oh...

There are a lot of really great baked items here. I have tried many. The cheesecakes are pheomenal. I have often gotten their ruggeluch and these are also outstanding. Among the very good items are their rolls and blank&white cookies. Even their sugar cookies, which are typically bland and tasteless at a lot of places, are very good and tasty... More

Love the crumb buns, apple turnovers, chocolate cigars, and cookies. I recently ordered a special occasion chocolate sheet cake filled with chocolate pudding and cannoli cream, and it was exceptionally moist and tasty.

Everything tastes fresh from this bakery!! I love going in and getting a pastry and cappuccino. The best part is the location. I do not have to travel to get a little piece of Italy.

We have been patrons of Il Giardino since they've opened a few years ago. Their cakes and pastries are The Best outside of Manhattan or any bakery in the Boroughs. My favorite is the Rainbow Cookie Cake: Layered Chocolate cake with Nutella and Raspberry preserves spread in between surrounded by Rainbow Cookies. My friend thinks their Tira Mi Su cake... More
