This bakery is a highlight of any vacation. The cases are just full of incredible looking treats. We finally decided on two: the Pistachio Cake and the Double Chocolate Cake. Both were perfectly made and not overly sweet. Delightful flavors without being overwhelming. The pricing is very fair for what you get. Do not miss this bakery while visiting the... More

This is a small bakery on Atwells Ave. Beautiful cakes on display in window. Cannoli's were very good. Filled to order. Shells light and crispy.

Pastries were not really traditional for Italian bakery. Busy holiday weekend and festival so not much product left over. You can tell the staff focused on the regulars and did not care about us tourists. Disappointed

Just what you imagine a family owned italian bakery to be. The baked goods are mouthwatering to look at and even better when you eat them.

This is a great Italian bakery. Everything looks so good. We had the Fig bars and it was filled with generous portions of sweet figs. I also tried the Apricot coconut walnut strudel and that was good as well and rather large. Helpful and warm staff...a pleasure to shop there.

I have been to Italy many times and I am very familiar with what authentic Italian pastries should taste like. So when I read the reviews for this place I assumed I would be getting top quality Italian sweets. I was let down. Pros: The bakery is cute with glass cases lined with cookies and pastries. The two young women... More
