I have traveled a lot through Italy, and their cookies are the best in the states. I wish they had coffee!

Fabulous bakery - everything is fresh and delicious. The Italian cookies are outstanding. We love shopping here regularly and during the holidays also. No matter where we have traveled, we have never found another Italian bakery as good as Sciortino's.

Wow everything here is AMAZING! The desserts are a work of art. You can also get a sandwich with boars head meat. Will be back each day while here. Thankfully it is just 2 blocks from us!
