This restaurant is in Cathedral City, not Riverside as listed but the street address is the same. Wonderful cannolis and cookies. We want to comeback again for lunch and try the sandwiches on fresh baked bread.

Best Italian pastries and bread ever. Friendly Italian owners anxious to please you. Could be a little difficult for visitors to find, but well worth it

Love stopping in and getting some cannoli or Italian cookies. Reminds me of the places my mom would take us as kids in Chicago. Frankie is so friendly and oh my god the bread is also amazing.
