“Yum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

Came upon Scialo Bros. Bakery while exploring Federal Hill recently and were very happy we did. The young women in the shop were helpful and very pleasant. Their Cranberry Pistachio cookies and Almond Biscotti are unique and scrumptious. They are pricey ($15.00 per pound for cookies) but every bite was heavenly so it was truly worth it.

The best Canoli's on Federal Hill...by far! This bakery has the best Italian pastries on the Hill. I will always stop by when I am in the New England area visiting familyand friends.

“Yummy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

I just visited Scialo's for the first time as part of a walking tour and so got to see behind the scenes there. I learned that all treats are handmade from scratch, and cooked in the huge brick ovens which speaks to the authenticity of the food. I'm not Italian or well educated about what makes a great cannoli but I did enjoy the treats I had. I tried the sfogliatelle, chocolate roll, biscotti, and date cookies and found none of them to be too sweet (the icing was a nice buttery not sweet icing) -and all were delicious.

“Flashback of my childhood!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

What an incredible place! In our part of the South, you just do not find bakeries like this anymore. From the screen door to the wonderful Italian ladies who served us, this place was a flashback of the best possible kind! Wonderful place and friendly staff.
