Every year on my birthday, I pre-order their Italian Rum Cake to feed 100 people, to take to the places where I sing. Some years I buy two, & have parties at both places. It is the BEST birthday cake you'll ever eat. The cake is soaked with rum, with Italian Custard & fruit in between the layers. It's frosted... More

I grew on where I had Italian bakeries all over the place so when I moved and found this place, I was happy. Everything is good.

Have never been a fan of their pastries but this past December was the Frosting on the Cake. Normally we bake a plethora of Italian cookies for Christmas but just didn't have time this year. So for the first time in around 35 years, we ordered a commercially made tray of Italian cookies from Gerardo's. We threw away a $36... More

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
