I have been a customer of this establishment for over 40 years! I got my wedding cake here and have been a customer with my own family ever since. The girls(sisters) are very friendly and make you feel like family! The pastries are the best of anywhere I have been! They are the most delicious and of a decent size.... More

For years getting bread across the street at Perreccas I noticed this establishment. Found out 2 sisters run and bake here which is outstanding. Usually when families run a place the work ethic shows through. The cookies are outstanding and they have 4 different kinds of almond cookies. I tried them all so next time I must give all the...

Walking into Civitello's is like going into a neighborhood place in Italy. They have the best gelato in Schenectady. The lemon Italian ice is wonderfully tart and refreshing. I haven't had the pizza but go often to have the pasta fagioli for lunch. It is delicious and excellent value. I can't say anything about the cookies and pastry others haven't.... More

The pastries and cookies are like something you would get in little italy in NY city. Their spumoni seems like it is homemade and fresh as well. It has a true italian flavor.

Very limited but good menu. The Piazza and Spumoni homemade and excellent. Reminds me of the old time small cafe. I believe it is 3rd generation.

The pastries I got there were delicious. The fig filled cookies were great, actually filled with a lot of fig instead of thick dough and no filling the way a lot of places get away with these days. The lady who waited on me was very friendly and nice. It's in Schenectady's "Little Italy" and I would go there again... More
