This family run bakery is the real deal. One always feels welcomed & is greeted politely.They may not be the most well-knowned in the area. But I would rather feel like I matter. Which I do here. I have not felt the same at other bigger & better-knowned bakeries in the area. The baked goods are just as good. Grazie... More

Amazing crepes (my fav is the banana Nutella) and awesome breakfast sandwiches. Love their pastries as well (yummy rainbow cookies and chocolate mousse)! Anyone who doesn't like this place is crazy!!

They have the best pastries in the valley! They also have a nice sit down area where you can enjoy your pastries with a nice selection of coffees.

Giovanni's is probably the most overrated bakery...ever. I don't understand why some people like it so much. If you want Italian pastries, Russo's in Enfield leaves Giovanni's in the dust. I've never gotten something from Giovanni's that I loved. All of their goods are essentially the same as what you can buy in a box at the grocery store.

Go there to get a gift when I am invited to someone's home. Always find something special to get to bring and it is always appreciated. Their cannolis are the best!

I don't know the names of the cookies but had a raspberry filled sugar cookie, a rainbow cake like cookie with chocolate frosting and jimmies, and a chocolate cookie with peanut butter filling. All very good. Pleasant and helpful staff and very clean place!

For anyone who loves Italian pastry, this is a welcome venue. There is room take your pastry and a Italian coffee and just sit and visit with other patrons. It is like a meeting place for local Italian pastry lovers. The smell of fresh baked bread and cakes is unmistakable. You don't have to travel to Springfield or Hartford to... More

My husband had a medical procedure & since he is a true chocoholic I decided a slice of chocolate fudge cake was a needed treat. He is very fussy about his chocolate. Grew up in NYC & had great bakeries all around. He hasn't raved about Giovanni's in the past but this time he was ecstatic. They are a hard... More
