The eclairs are my favorite. This cute little Italian bakery has been around for forever. I love stopping by when in Philly. You know you're nearly there when you can smell the sweet pastries baking in the kitchen. (Yes, you can actually smell the goodness outside walking up to the bakery!) Walking in you can see all of the beautiful... More

One of the great Italian bakeries in South Philly. Best cannoli in town. Lines outside during the Christmas holidays. Just cross the street and have breakfast at Sabrina's. Excellent!

We've tried cannolis all over the Philly area and Isgros is the best! They use fresh cannoli shells and real ricotta,chees in the filling. Their Italian cookies are delicious as well.

Visiting from Florida as I was born in South Philly, I had for the first time ever the mini rum cake. Like everything made here for nearly 100 years it was wonderful. A Philly treasure like Termini's Bakery don't skip this place if you are in Philly after seeing the Liberty Bell, Betsy Ross, whatever stop here and pick up... More

My wife and I visited Isgro for the first time two years ago, when visiting her son, and it was one the first places we mentioned when visiting him recently. The cannoli's are very generously filled, and they are so popular they keep them handy stacked on a tray. The place was 3 deep with customers, in the middle of... More

Been getting cannoli here for 40+ years. It was the shop my Sicilian grandmother and aunt went to and I wouldn't go anywhere else. Service is usually friendly and efficient. They are not cheap and street parking can be a pain but figure out a way and go.

I took my wife to this place because I read that they had amazing cannolis. Well were not disappointed at all. The filling was amazing and they truly are the best cannolis we have ever had.They also have an amazing selection of pastries to try out. We definitely will go back to this place.
