Love all the pastries. Great selection from Portuguese, Spanish and Italian pastries. .everything is always fresh. And if you can't find what you are looking for just ask them and they will put an order for you and you can have it the next days. .my favorite is the flan and bread pudding combination. .also the rum balls are delicious

We purchased a box of goodies on our way to an event and was super pleased at the high quality of the items for sale at this bakery. The canolli are filled fresh when you order them, and we loved the chocolate cookies.

This bakery has everything including delicious breads. My personal favorite is their red velvet cakes. Their pies are outstanding. Give it a try.

The original Bella Palermo in Elizabeth, NJ. I was just here this past Saturday. The café was packed. The cannoli are amazing, as are the cakes and pastries. There is a parking lot for about 10 cars, and the service is wonderful. Great cappuccino. Has our wedding cake from here back in 1983.

I am Italian and we take our pastries seriously. I find Bella Palermo to be overpriced on pastries and on cakes. They are only fair. If you are going to pay for them try Bovella's in Westfield. Expensive but delicious.

I stopped here to pick up a pastry for work and found it very agreeable. It was open early (6:45am!) and freshly stocked at 8am when I stopped. The person at the counter was very nice and helpful as she was putting away freshly baked things. There are tons of cookies, pastries, and cakes to choose from. I wasn't sure... More

Everything looked great so I ordered a large pumpkin pie and 24 small cannoli to take to my son's home for Thanksgiving desert. They are open until 2:00 on Thanksgiving so I was able to pickup my order that morning. Everything was great! My son, who... More
