The fellow Italian and former New York'er who told me this place is the best Italian bakery south of Baltimore's little Italy is spot on. This Italian bakery is amazing. Do not let the drab interior and plain strip-mall location fool you, they know how to bake. It was like going back to New York. The Italian cookies (almond, Black... More

Never had Tiramisu that had NO mascarpone filling in it...the bottom cake was soaked soggy in coffee and then the middle and top layers were very DRY (imagine that in Tiramisu) cake and some sort of sour tasting frosting layer on the top and dusted with way too...

This is a great bakery!! Every kind of Italian dessert or cookie. We had 3 pieces of cake-Reese's peanut butter, Chocolate Mousse, and Italian Cream. All three were wonderful. The pieces are HUGE and well worth the price. Anything you try here will be delicious. We stop here every visit to Sarasota!

I first went here in search of St Joseph's Day Zeppole and left with a huge bag of goodies. the minute I walked into the place, the smells brought me back to my childhood and the bakeries in Boston's Italian North End. This place rivals Boston's Modern Pastary or Mike's across the street. When we are in Sarasota this is... More

Pizza, calzones, Italian cookies, pastries, etc. I had not found a good Italian bakery in Florida until today. So glad to have stopped in after lunch.

The selection is huge! The best biscotti and cannoli I have ever had. They fill the cannoli to order and they taste delicious! They also have bread, pizza, cake and other desserts. I went back two times in a week and it was not enough!

We so enjoy remembering the family dinners in our past when we go to Paisano's and buy our favorite pastries. Everything is elegant, delicious, just wonderful.
