I have been to Italy many times and I am very familiar with what authentic Italian pastries should taste like.

Stopped in by accident (saw a sign that read since 1916 so of course had to go in) and wound up staying to meet the family who gave us a tour. Both Lois (her husband) and her sister Carol have huge passion for their craft. I have seen this passion before in places like Termini and Isgro's in South Philadelphia... More

I have been going to this bakery for at the very least 50 years and absolutely love it. They carry hard to find Zuppa Inglese cake, which my family adores, plus mini cannolis.

I couldn't decide what to buy when I went there. They bake with brick ovens. Their cakes are unbelievable. I bought a butter rum pound cake. Sooo good. Family owned. Just wonderful

The well known longtime family run bakery offered the best biscotti we ever tried. We didn't try their other offerings but had no reason to doubt their quality.
