Best bread and rolls in the area as well as the dipped in chocolate when ordered cannoli. The Italian cookies are amazing and a must for Christmas entertaining!

One experience here when the sfogliatelle wasn't up to par, but normally this is a top quality bakery, selling a number of items that can't be found anywhere else in this city. The custom cake maker here is the only place we go to get birthday cakes for the kids.

Very good Italian deserts and breads. Very fair pricing and always fresh. Right down the street from Gloriosos, so they are nice to hit for meal and desert.

The bread, rolls ,cookies and cakes are like none anywhere I have travelled. The Italian bread fresh all day long is a real treat. The cookies are second to none.

I went to this bakery on a Friday morning for a turnover and a cup of coffee, there was a huge selection of cookies,cakes, donuts and that sort of thing.

I've been a longtime customer of Sciortino's Bakery. I was back in Milwaukee, my hometown, recently, and bought two boxes of cookies - one for my family, and one for a friend who was recently in the hospital. I bought nearly $35 worth of cookies in total. Sciortino's cookies, in the past, have always been fresh and tasty. This most... More

If you want fresh Italian cookies go to the source! While several other stores carry their cookies they are never as fresh as the ones in the bakery here. Also you can pick and choose for your own selection of favorites! At the holiday time you can pre-order, which means in most cases when the store is filled you get... More

Omg. This fabulous family bakery has been a staple for the east side of Milwaukee. This is a must stop. Yummy cookies and baked goods. Can't get this stuff anywhere else on the east side or downtown.
