Best Bread & Italian Cookies on Brady Street

You don't find a bakery like this anymore. Everything is delicious especially their Italian bread and cookies. They make your Cannoli's fresh.

The assorted Italian cookies are fantastic. I get a fantastic assortment every year and always at Christmas time. They also have fantastic crusty Italian breads. My favorite cookies are the chocolate macaroons that are dipped in white chocolate. My favorite bread is the artichoke loaf. It is white bread shaped in the round and covered with sesame seeds. It is... More

The Canoli's are amazing at Peter Sciortino's Bakery. They are fresh. When I was there, it was breakfast time, and there wasn't any canoli's in the glass case, but I asked to see if they could make one, and the lady was more than accommodating. She went in the back and came out with a fresh canoli in just a... More

Amazing cookies & breads. The prices are reasonable, and over all it reminds me of the New York bakeries I went to as a kid.

This bakery was a stop on the Milwaukee Food tour we went on (see separate review) and it was so terrific we immediately came back right after the tour. Between our group, we tasted the cannoli (crispy and not too sweet), a couple kinds of cookies, biscotti and my favorite, a dulce de leche cream puff. Everything is fresh, tasty... More

Simply amazing the best danish I have ever had! What others pass off as fresh will seem like day old bakery after a visit here.

Best place to go for ham and rolls in the city. You can even pick up some Italian cookies when you are there

If you're in the Brady Street 'hood you must stop into Sciortino's Bakery. The canolis are amazing, they make them fresh right when you order them and it only takes them a couple minutes tops. Also, the cookies are delicious too. Don't miss this Brady Street landmark. It should be noted that in the early-1960s the Balistrieri organized crime mafia... More

the best italian cookies in milwaukee….always fresh and plentiful at a reasonable price - grab several pounds - for yourself and for your friends as these cookies make great gifts. treat yourself to something special….not quite like new york's famous pastry shops, but close enough.
