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.

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
