Gerardo's has the best Italian pastries in Worcester county. They have 2 stores, main store in West Boylston & a smaller store in Westborough. Always fresh and plentiful. Great cakes to special order, birthday, weddings, we've used them all. You will never go wrong shopping here.

I stop here regularly on my way home from school. It's a nice little place to purchase fresh Italian pasteries, or to meet for coffee and desert. The bakery has everything from wedding cakes (special orders), cheesecake, canoli's, variety of breads, cookies and real Italian gelato to name a few! If you don't see something that you like, just ask!

I did not buy anything here, just looked around and I was very impressed with the place. They gave me a complimentary (free) cup of coffee. The pastries looked super and seemed reasonable in cost given the excellent appearance. I would recommend this bakery if you are looking for a treat especially for a special occasion. They have a wide... More

Gerardo's has the best canolli's! I love all pastries/cookies that I've bought from Gerardo's. I ordered a cake, which was on the pricey side, but it was unbelievable! It was the best cake I've ever had so it was worth paying more. Their chocolate cream pie is also delicious. I have never had a bad experience at Gerardo's.

Most products are very good. Sometimes if it's off season the Italian cookies seem stale or refrigerated

We love Gerardo's. We often stop by for a treat and it is the only bakery cake I will buy. Never mind that the prices are very competitive, the customer service is always top notch, and they put a lot of care and thought into the decorating. I have never been disappointed by Gerardo's.

But I disagree. I have had stale bread sticks more often than fresh and been told that they were just made that day. Their staff is not properly trained, their products are inconsistent, and there is never a manager around. Other bakeries take pride in their work and service, not this one!

From the moment you approach the smell is intoxicating! I went in last December to get some Christmas cookies as my husband is Italian and enjoys them. My daughter came along with my Grand daughter so we sat for a small treat and cup of coffee. It was a wonderful life experience.

Not only can you get some delicious pastries and breads, but you can also get sandwiches. I have only tried the pastries and can attest to many calories and much exercise to not to gain weight. Italian delicacies are a specialty and they will make cakes and pastries for any occasion.
