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.

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.

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!
