You're in Providence RI and, of course, you have just had a fabulous Italian meal. How can you improve on this experience? You can say, no thanks for the dessert. You can walk down Atwell's Ave.. to Scialo's and find yourself in heaven! Which tasty treat do you want to indulge in? A cannolli? Carrot cake? Some cookies? Everything you... More

But I am sure it will be the Italian cheesecake, cannoli, baba arum, rice pies, ricotta cups and Italian cookies that will take your breathe away. The prices are high so be prepared, but the... More

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.
