“Amazing!!”
Reviewed January 1, 2010

Everything tastes fresh from this bakery!! I love going in and getting a pastry and cappuccino. The best part is the location. I do not have to travel to get a little piece of Italy.

“THE Best Bakery outside of Little Italy”
Reviewed December 30, 2009

We have been patrons of Il Giardino since they've opened a few years ago. Their cakes and pastries are The Best outside of Manhattan or any bakery in the Boroughs. My favorite is the Rainbow Cookie Cake: Layered Chocolate cake with Nutella and Raspberry preserves spread in between surrounded by Rainbow Cookies. My friend thinks their Tira Mi Su cake is the best. The Black and White cookies have a taste of almond - delicious! Their Biscotti is also fresh and tastes great even a week later..
Whenever we need cake, pastries or bread, we go to Il Giardino.
Tables and chairs are set up inside and outside and Italian television plays on the big screen TV's. It's a wonderful place to go for dessert after dinner and a movie, or just to sit and chat with a friend over coffee. They also have Gelato, cheesecake, packaged Italian baked goods, etc.
For Christmas and Easter, they have the best Honeyballs, too.
As one poster stated, they are a bit pricey, but you pay for Quality. Much better than Benkerts. If you want inexpensive bakery items, go to the supermarket and pick up Entenmanns; but if you want delicious Italian cakes or pastries, Il Giardino is the place to go!
