Can't miss place for my family!

The bakery is loaded with amazing pastries, but I go here with one thing in mind: Cannoli. They are made to order and are filled with ricotta and/or fresh chocolate custard. I get half and half. I've been searching far and wide and have yet to find a better cannoli. Moio's are perfect: not too... read more

We have been buying our pastries and birthday cakes at Moio's for well over 30 years now, and they simply cannot be beat -- simply put, they are the BEST!!! Everything is always extremely fresh and delicious, and their bakery cases are loaded with every kind of dessert choice imaginable. All of the staff who work there are very friendly... More

Let me say that again, louder. COOKIES! They're expensive and worth every penny. I visit this little shop every time I am in Pittsburgh and dream about it for a week after I leave. The variety is stunning, and the quality is superb.

I like Moio's bakery items a very good bakery but I really prefer Oakmont bakery more selection and the prices seem to be more reasonable

We always order our birthday cakes at Moio's. Our favorites are the rum cake and the burnt almond torte. Pastries are yummy too.

Moio's is a step back in time to a by-gone era. The service is the best. The pastries are top quality. Everything is made from scratch without preservatives. I didn't think these kinds of bakeries existed anymore, so I was so glad I stopped by to see for myself. Treat yourself to a delicious pastry or two. You will not... More

Cute pastry shop with all the Italian favorites. I wasn't a fan of the cannoli but the chocolate mousse and eclair were very good. I suggest a trip in if you are passing by.

My entire extended family has been going there for decades. As far as consistently great tasting fine Italian pastries an baked goods are concerned, they're at the top. We can't go in there without buying a dozen, or more, of their awesome cannolis. Available in vanilla, chocolate, or half and half, these are worth any drive to get. Over the... More

We live closeby to Moio's and have enjoyed their pastries for years. Our favorites--fresh fruit tarts, mocha bars and their cherry pie is GREAT.

If you live in Pittsburgh, you've been to Moio's. If you live in the area and have not been to Moio's, you haven't lived! No matter where you travel, you will never find Italian pastries of the taste and quality of Moio's. Cannolis, napoleons, cheesecake, rum cake, on and on and on, nowhere compares and believe me, we all use... More
