really a hidden gem in the middle of harrisburg. the breads and foods are made with quality. A lot of the food is not processed so you really get the home cooked feeling as opposed to the machinery of a restaurant. Note: the coffee here is pretty good as well.

The bakery we were planning to go to was closed so we decided to try Alvaro instead because we saw they had cannolis. Very disappointed! The shells definitely were not fresh. Tasted old. They were also VERY rude about wearing masks. I said I don't wear one for health reasons. They told me to leave. Then lied about getting huge fines if they let anyone in the building without one.NOT true! We were at multiple restaurants in Harrisburg where people including staff didn't wear full review

I totally love this little Italian eatery full of delicious and tempting things. Their food is second to none. Their pastries and breads are amazing! And their Italian gelati are bursting with flavor. Whenever I come in they treat me like a friend of the family. I am privileged to live within walking distance, but I would travel a distance just for the experience.
