Fabulous array of decadent pastries. After a 10 day cruise I needed a dessert and Paisano's was perfect. I brought home the lobster claw, tiramasu and a napoleon. They were all delicious but the lobster claw was over the top. The cream filling was rich and sweet. The shell was perfectly formed and prepared. Many layers of paper thin crispy... More

Lots of Italian cookies, sauces, ready-to-heat-up entrees, and more. The location is a little hard to get in and out of, but worth it.

Great Italian Bakery with a wide selection of pastries, cookies, cakes, stromboli, and pasta. When you open the door and walk in the smell is heavenly. The only difficult part is choosing from the extensive selection. I had a napoleon and it was perfect. They make specialty cakes as well, and have pictures of beautiful wedding and birthday cakes they... More

I was thrilled to hear that there was an Italian bakery in Sarasota. I thought, however, that it was a "bread bakery". The pastries and cakes looked delicious. I wanted a loaf of good, crispy, delicious Italian bread. What I got was a loaf of "mush" bread. Better at the supermarket!! I also bought six biscotti. Cost?? $15.89!! I was... More

We have gone twice this month to buy goodies to take home, The Napoleons are our favorites, but puffs filled with cannoli cream is a close second. I also bought some great goodies which I cannot name, ut they were also great. On last visit we noted they also have some Italian entrees/ We brought home some great meatballs.

The fellow Italian and former New York'er who told me this place is the best Italian bakery south of Baltimore's little Italy is spot on. This Italian bakery is amazing. Do not let the drab interior and plain strip-mall location fool you, they know how to bake. It was like going back to New York. The Italian cookies (almond, Black... More

Overall way too pricey then on top of it items tasted stale. Never had Tiramisu that had NO mascarpone filling in it...the bottom cake was soaked soggy in coffee and then the middle and top layers were very DRY (imagine that in Tiramisu) cake and some sort of sour tasting frosting layer on the top and dusted with way too...

This is a great bakery!! Every kind of Italian dessert or cookie. We had 3 pieces of cake-Reese's peanut butter, Chocolate Mousse, and Italian Cream. All three were wonderful. The pieces are HUGE and well worth the price. Anything you try here will be delicious. We stop here every visit to Sarasota!
