Best biscotti ever! Also recommend the pizza dough.

Wonderful cookie selection with perfect fresh biscotti. We love to make homemade pizza and their dough is the best. (We've tried them all.) Freezes well too.

Can't rave enough about this bakery. Everything is top notch. Keep in mind they make cookie trays for all occasions. They bent over backwards for a family wedding. We all buy more than we planned on; be sure to try the cannoli!

The baked good are so beautiful. Just a lovely, lovely pastry case. We got a cream filled lobster tail and a classic chocolate eclair. To be fair, we are able to travel the continent frequently. Not really comparable to Europe's pastries, but excellent effort.

Yes, I shouted on purpose (used caps). Go in the morning while the CREAMPUFFS are fresh, you won't be sorry. We sat outside and enjoyed Brady Street culture. This historic bakery on the East Side is a MUST!!!!

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.

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