Delicious Cannoli - traditional ricotta and marscapone

It was a Sunday morning, unseasonably warm January, between 10 and 11 a.m. and we were about the 5th people on line. They have a nice selection of pastry but this time, I wanted to try cannoli. They offered the "traditional" ricotta filled, one with the shell dipped in chocolate filled with... read more

I was looking for a place with good cannoli’s in South Philly. There were several that came up in my Google search and Isgro's looked inviting. I guess if I was a regular I may have liked it more. I found that the servers behind the counter were rude and impatient. Since this was my first time here I had... More

This place lures you in with the smell of great pastries a block away. That said, my server used her bare hands got pick up the pastry I selected before I asked her to give me another she had not touched. I should NOT have to tell a food handler to not use her bare hands. She had just been... More

I visited Isgro Pastries in the Italian Market section of Philadelphia and was knocked out by the wonderful aroma as I entered. There was a vast selection of cookies and pastries to choose from. They were all so beautiful, it was hard to choose. I made my choices which they placed in a box for me to take home. I... More

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!
