To the man below me who claims that nothing is made in house and his experience was awful, we kindly invite you to come in and see us make all of our wonderful pastries and bread, you can see all of the pastries we sell out of, you're more than welcome to spend the entire day with all of us...

Just stopped by for lunch on Sunday afternoon after reading that Guy from DDD was here. What a disappointment and I'm being kind! As far as the 'Bakery' part of the name goes, most of what you see in the case is a food service product and not made onsite as you would think. With this much product in the... More

Great location in the Red Mill shopping center. Very friendly staff. Desserts, desserts, and more desserts. We tried several different kinds. All desserts are beautiful, but they don't have much flavor. Tried a few paninis….same outcome. Looked great, but the flavor wasn't there. As a second generation Italian, I was hoping for more.

Thank GOD for our friends who are "locals" or we never would have found this gem ! Loved the decor and "Italian" colors.We ordered the stuffed meatball with spaghetti; our friends had the spinach ravioli. I am very picky about sauce ( since I love my OWN lol!) but there's was very good. Nice atmosphere and service: reasonably priced. We... More

We also went here after the DDD episode. When you walk in the desserts look great but that's where the greatness stops. The women who took our order was extremely rude because we didn't know which dessert we wanted and they weren't even busy. The food had no flavor and the meatballs were dry. We ordered our food to go... More

You walk in and see three huge showcases of sweets,mouthwatering. Friendly staff sat us at a booth as requested. Very accommodating with our questions about specific items on the menu. Atmosphere is so... More

The food was great, service was not as good as the food. Large selection of pastries. I had the tiramisu and it was great! My husband has the famous meatball that Guy Fieri had on Diners Drive Ins and Dives, he said it was great and he never says anywhere is great. It looks small on the outside but surprisingly... More
