My family loves Sciortino's. Their breads are amazing and their cookies are to die for. My family prefers that I buy their cookies for Christmas instead of baking. I have ordered their cakes, as well, and would recommend them too.

Great breads and pastries at this long tenured bakery. I make a point of stopping every time I am in the neighborhood.

We always buy pizza dough here to take home and bake our own pizzas. Best price around at $2. Great cannolis too!

The pastries are mostly Italian. However, Polish folks also live nearby. So, some items cater to their tastes. It's a small place with lots of options. We discovered it on a historical tour of the neighborhood. Three weeks later the bakery needed a return visit. And we live in Oshkosh.

Great selection of Italian cookies and other baked items. Cookies by the pound so mix up a collection to try. Love the chocolate and nut creations and lemon and amaretto cookies. They also make a selection of wheat free cookies good for some of my family members.

This bread is beyond good! you can get rolls, cookies, cannolis and of course the wonderful Italian bread loaf, with lots of sesame seeds and have them slice it or not. Glorioso's sells it up the street and they only sell the best so stop in and get it fresh out of the oven!

I just love the bread and rolls. I drive 10 miles just for the buns. You can't go wrong. And you are right on Brady St. The old Hippy Street.

We walked in and were immediately served by friendly staff. We tried the cannoli and tiramisu, even though there was quite a variety of pastries that looked delicious, and weren't disappointed. Our stop here was definitely a highlight during our time in Milwaukee and we'd for sure come back if we're ever in town again!

I've been a customer and fan of Sciortino's Bakery for the past 40 years. My grandmother lived on Brady Street, so I grew up eating Sciortino's baked goods - always delicious, fresh baked goods - pastries, cakes, breads. This is a Milwaukee tradition, located on historic Brady Street. Everything they make is fantastic. Those little almond cookies are 'to die... More
