This is the only place to get Italian bread (and I am not Italian) in the hood. Not only that BUT when we buy a 6' hero for parties we only go to places that use their bread (Los Paisanos on Smith Street).

this is one of the best bakeries i've ever visited. Amazing breads, especially the Italian peasant loaf. The lard bread is actually a prosciutto bread and while not healthy, one of the best things ever made to eat. Cookies are excellent too, but stay away from the croissants - it's just not their thing.
