Description: Alessi Bakery is a true Tampa landmark dating back over a century to 1912, making it one of the few historic restaurant establishments in the area. Situated at 2909 W. Cypress Street Alessi, Bakery was first opened on Cherry Street by Nicolo Alessi. He arrived in Tampa from Italy over a hundred years ago, bringing his knowledge of baking and proud European heritage with him. Nicolo Alessi used to deliver the freshest Italian and Cuban bread on horse and wagon to his customers. Nicolo’s son John Alessi, continued his father’s tradition of baking, and he received numerous awards for his cake decorating. Those very same cake recipes have been perfected over the years and these cakes are well-known all over the Tampa Bay area for their personalized touch for weddings or any milestone event.

Stopped by for a snack and ended up with dinner. The Cuban was made from freshly roasted meats and you the tell. The chocolate cake was layered with mousse and ganache and was excellent

Had brunch here and got to try both breakfast and lunch foods, both were great. The egg sandwiches are awesome, and the hand carved Cuban sandwich is one of the best I’ve had in Tampa, which is saying a lot since Cubans are a Tampa specialty.
The pastries are fresh and high quality, like you would find in Little Italy NYC or the North End of Boston.

This wonderful bakery with their friendly staff is a must stop ,but only if you have a really sweet tooth and you like fresh and tasty gourmet desserts.
We thought we bought more than we needed,but we surprised ourselves by eating two- thirds of what we bought and saved the rest for tomorrow.

Alessi bakery has been around since 1912, so you can expect authenticity in their offerings. The hand carved Cuban is one of the best in Tampa and I highly recommend it. My friends swear by their devil crabs as well. Not to mention Tampa classics like scachatta.
