“Best butter cookies ever!”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Everything this bakery makes is absolutely delish! From the moment you walk toward the door, you can smell the butter and sugar and your mouth will start to water :). Their cookies melt in your mouth, the canolis are amazing. I have yet to try the many pastries and cakes in the case...hmmm, I see a visit coming this weekend, just thinking about it :) YUMMM.

“Best anywhere!”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

I grew up in South Philly. On Sunday, we went to church at St. Paul's, and then went to Isgro's for a pastry. I have been all around the world since then, and Isgro's remains THE BEST! Every christening, birthday, holiday, wedding and even funeral in our family has had an assortment of cannoli and pastry. Both of my daughters had strawberry banana mousse cakes for their first birthday's flown in by their Nana. I've even threatened TSA agents at the airport for trying to open my cannoli boxes.

“Doughnuts and Cakes”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

You cannot go wrong with this bakery for its doughnuts and plain cakes. I love their plain birthday cakes from here along with their white cream doughnuts.

“best cannoli ever”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

I don't go too much for the rest of the pastry but their butter cookies and cannolis are heavenly. The service is slooooowwww, but worth the wait- usually. It is a true South Philly experience
