Just love the Italian cookies and cannoli chips with dip! A bit expensive but worth it! Our guests loved the cannoli dip! I live the pistachio Italian cookies.

Gerardo's made our cake for our August 13th wedding at Shaker Hills Country Club. We were recommended to Gerardo's by a friend who was also getting her cake from this vendor, and it was the best recommendation I had for a wedding vendor. My husband and I were both very pleased with the whole process, from the tasting to our... More

They do a great job on special orders. Very fresh, traditional and Italian pastries. Love the apricot and fig squares, Boston cream cake and coconut cream pie

Gerardo's has the best Italian pastries in Worcester county. They have 2 stores, main store in West Boylston & a smaller store in Westborough. Always fresh and plentiful. Great cakes to special order, birthday, weddings, we've used them all. You will never go wrong shopping here.

I stop here regularly on my way home from school. It's a nice little place to purchase fresh Italian pasteries, or to meet for coffee and desert. The bakery has everything from wedding cakes (special orders), cheesecake, canoli's, variety of breads, cookies and real Italian gelato to name a few! If you don't see something that you like, just ask!

I did not buy anything here, just looked around and I was very impressed with the place. They gave me a complimentary (free) cup of coffee. The pastries looked super and seemed reasonable in cost given the excellent appearance. I would recommend this bakery if you are looking for a treat especially for a special occasion. They have a wide... More

Gerardo's has the best canolli's! I love all pastries/cookies that I've bought from Gerardo's. I ordered a cake, which was on the pricey side, but it was unbelievable! It was the best cake I've ever had so it was worth paying more. Their chocolate cream pie is also delicious. I have never had a bad experience at Gerardo's.

Most products are very good. Sometimes if it's off season the Italian cookies seem stale or refrigerated

We love Gerardo's. We often stop by for a treat and it is the only bakery cake I will buy. Never mind that the prices are very competitive, the customer service is always top notch, and they put a lot of care and thought into the decorating. I have never been disappointed by Gerardo's.
