Words can not say enough about this bakery. It is a family run business that has been around for generations. Everything is home made, no preservatives. All I can say is simply the best. Enjoy.

Being Italian, I am pretty fussy when it come to anything Italian. Sciortino's is family owned and operated. The pastry and breads are fantastic. They even make the cannoli to order so the shells do not get soggy! A small area to sit for coffee and pastry. Very friendly family.

Brady St is an interesting neighborhood and this is a wonderful little Italian bakery. Took our treats to Brewed Cafe down the street - a fun and funky little place with great coffee.

I grew up with a very Italian family and this is as close as it gets to having homemade. All of the italian cookies are out of this world! If you want the best stuff prepare to go early in the morning to get your hands on the chocolate croissants and more. Can't recommend this place enough.

Loved the great selection and light, fresh tastes, varying from amaretto to toasted coconut delights. We took two boxes on the road with us, taking great care of them in the heat of a summer road trip. They made it back home perfectly but, unfortunately, did not last very long!

What a great group of folks to do business with. We have stopped in Sundays over the years but took the plunge and bought our wedding cake from Sciortino's. Perfection --the cannoli filling sent our families into orbit. The best part was the small statue of the Holy Family on the display case. Very Milwaukee and worth a stop, especially... More

This is a small neighborhood bakery that sells its fabulous cookies by the pound. I often take these back to Central IL and give them as gifts to my friends. They are truly authentic---My friend's mother, who is Italian, said she will never make her own Tutus again. She said they are perfect!

Of course the bakery goods are wonderful, especially the cannoli which they fill with cream while you wait (the chocolate one is downright sinful). But don't stop there. The olive salads (green or black olives) are worth a try. The celery makes them crunchy and the green olives in my salad were huge and definitely satisfied my salt craving...in a... More
