“Yummy”
Reviewed December 4, 2013 via mobile

I've only gotten pastries and cookies from here, and they are awesome, just like the bakeries I'm used in NJ. I would suggest parking in one of the garages, since street parking is limited.

“Unrivaled pastries”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

Best cannoli, period. Get a couple whenever you go. The tarts, mini-cakes, large cookies, and other pastries are all exceptional, as well. The sandwiches (I recommend the Golden Gate) and pasta salads are great for a quick, delicious lunch. I was happy to get jury duty because I could eat lunch here every day!

“Great lunches”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

I know La Dolce Vita is primarily a bakery but they have the best lunches, especially the Italian panini.

“Pretty Average”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

I selected 3 of 5 because it really was an average Italian bakery. I was helped within the first 5 minutes of being in the bakery, and I bought an assortment of italian cookies. 25 in a box cost me $12.95 (it's 12.95 p/p). I like the 5 brownie bites I got, but that was about it. Everything else was the same exact cookie with the same exact chocolate shaped differently, and wasn't very good. Cute shop, but not the quality product I was expecting from an Italian bakery.

“Breath of Fresh Air...Class and Elegance”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

My first impression when stepping through the door of this place was, Wow, am I in Europe or not! It has the timeless feel of a bustling small town cafe, graced with friendly staff, and piles of delicious pastries made right there! My food was awesome, coffee was top of the line,and service was great! I plan to go back many times!
