In an upscale appearing Italian Bakery you will find just about whatever you may want and not at an upscale price. What a treat. Have the Italian cookies, the double chocolate brownies and cannoli's are to die for! I was surprised to see the wide open restaurant attached to the bakery and will be back to try the Veal Parmesan!... More

After a great meal next door at Oli's, the perfect cap to the meal were two delicious cannoli at Gerardo's. I have enjoyed cannoli in Positano, and these were not quite as good - but they were very close. Try the pistachio.

A variety of small desserts to take to an outing or friend's home from cannolis to lemon bars to cheesecakes to petit fours. All sorts of Italian cookies and cute... More

Needed a few cannoli for a school function. Easy in and out. Great bake, crispy, good filling. Even grabbed a bite for myself on the drive. Pleasant and courteous counter help.

Every year on my birthday, I pre-order their Italian Rum Cake to feed 100 people, to take to the places where I sing. Some years I buy two, & have parties at both places. It is the BEST birthday cake you'll ever eat. The cake is soaked with rum, with Italian Custard & fruit in between the layers. It's frosted... More

I grew on where I had Italian bakeries all over the place so when I moved and found this place, I was happy. Everything is good.

Have never been a fan of their pastries but this past December was the Frosting on the Cake. Normally we bake a plethora of Italian cookies for Christmas but just didn't have time this year. So for the first time in around 35 years, we ordered a commercially made tray of Italian cookies from Gerardo's. We threw away a $36... More

Just love the Italian cookies and cannoli chips with dip! A bit expensive but worth it! Our guests loved the cannoli dip! I live the pistachio Italian cookies.

Gerardo's made our cake for our August 13th wedding at Shaker Hills Country Club. We were recommended to Gerardo's by a friend who was also getting her cake from this vendor, and it was the best recommendation I had for a wedding vendor.
