Best Bakery In South Sarasota

This is a great little bakery housed in a small strip mall on Stickney Point Road. It has breads, desserts, the best cannoli that they only fill before you buy it. Soups, lasagna and eggplant in foil containers to go. They slice the bread for you and are very friendly. Make a stop you won't be... read more

Admittedly, I like over the top sweet things. See my previous review about no Dr. Pepper at the Columbia. 😜🙄 We got a red velvet cake from Paisano's for Christmas, and it was pretty good, but I felt like it could have been sweeter. The cake was very airy and light, as a traditional Italian cake is, and the cream... More

This is the only place my family will buy pastries on the holidays. We're from NY, and it's the closest in quality to what we had back home. They have tables, but I don't recommend staying. On Christmas and Easter, be prepared for a crowd.

The owners are from RI, so am I. This is the only bakery I've found in FL that matches the quality I'm used to. What's not to like?

Picked up several items. Very, very good. Lovely ladies at the counter provided great service and knew the menu extremely well. Even had dog treats. The dogs give this place an excellent review as well!

Pricey, very pricey. There are better bakeries in NYC and their prices are lower than this place. The pastries are very good, but pricey. We're disappointed because we really like good bakeries, but our budget does not like the prices.

Just like Federal Hill in Providence, RI. Exceptional pizza strips, great breads and sweets. Don't forget to look in the refrigerator as they sometimes have a batch of pasta fagioli or great meatballs in sauce. A truly great find. Parking is a problem if you stop after work due to the other restaurants in the strip mall starting to fill... More

This bakery is consistent, the staff and owner are excellent! Reminds me of an old school Italian-American bakery back in NYC. If you haven't already, try the cheeseless pizza bread. It's amazing and tastes similar to the one I have in Rome whenever I go work.

quaint Italian bakery is loaded with a large selection cookies, breads, cakes and pies. Also have strombolis pre-made ready to take hoe and heat up. We really love this little bakery. Can get crowded at times and parking can be a challenge

This is your quintessential Italian bakery! They are the only place I now get cannolis and I try only to travel past them after I know they are closed, it is the only thing that keeps me out of this place. The worst thing past the weight I have gained is trying to figure out what to get. So far... More
