We just tried Gerardo's for the first time after having dinner nearby and we were looking for dessert. We were impressed with the extensive selection of pastries presented in the refrigerator case. Both items we choose (cannoli and petit four) were very good and we were surprised to get free coffee with our selection. There are a number of tables... More

We came here and some of the stuff was just ok. Cannoli shell was kind of soft. Definitely a turn off. The macaroon was very good. Also, had a piece of cake that was pretty good.

Great place to go for coffee and Italian Pastry: biscotti, anise cookies, cannoli, etc. They also have wonderful Italian bread, crème cakes and gelato. There is a nice clean sitting area for quiet conversation and FREE coffee. It is worth the trip to check out Gerardo's. You won't be disappointed.

I was not having much luck finding a baker to do my wedding cake last September 2014 - I started looking early spring and a lot of the places I looked into were either already booked or I did not enjoy the tasting. My wedding planner suggested Gerardo's, which was a bit out of my way, but it was easy... More

Such a great Italian restaurant. The desserts are amazing, I come here every time I have to bring dessert to a family gathering. I even buy dessert from here when Im craving a fruit tart or cannoli. The most recent times Ive come, there hasn't been any line which is my luck. If you go during holiday hours, you may... More

Oh, the options! This place has a large selection of sweet treats, pastries, cakes and just about anything that won't help your diet. :-) The pistachio cannolis & pistachio cookies are my favorites. Place is large and has plenty of room for you to sit back, enjoy your treat & a cup of coffee.

I have been going, as well as working for, Gerardo's Bakery for many years. My favorite pastry is their Lobster Tails! I have been to Italy numerous times, and this bakery comes as close to the pastry I have enjoyed in Italy! My husband loves their pine nut cookies, and also their cassattas. A nice touch is that they have... More
