People love to talk about this bakery as an old-timey place. But they don't serve long john donuts?! Hot ham and rolls are not enticing to me so I skip those. The bread seems to get stale an hour after you get it home. It had a nice appearance, so skip the food and just take a picture.

Peter Sciortino's has been an East Side institution. Although I no longer live in Milwaukee, I frequently stop in for something sweet. If you have a sweet tooth, Sciortino's wont disappoint. The business remains in the family. The woman at the counter says that everything remains cooked from scratch using family recipes. Although I just ate next door at Gloriosos,... More

I love that there still are a few ethnic bakeries around and this is one of the best, The breads here are great, but the parking can be a little tricky. Also I seen to show on this side of town on the day they are closed, I think it's a Monday.

One of the best bakeries I've ever been to. Everything is made from scratch and all of the recipes rival my grandmother's recipes. If you want cannolis you need to ask because they will fill them right in front of you instead of leaving them sit out. I also love their chocolate croissants. Whether its fresh baked bread or cookies... More

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.
