Not what we expected 6/16/2008

My husband and I love to find ethinic and gourmet food shops when visiting other cities. On a recent visit to Milwaukee, we stopped in Peter Sciortino's Bakery on Brady Street -- a very disappointing experience. We especially love mom and pop bakeries as my my husband's grandfather owned a bakery business in Cincinnati for nearly 50 years. Peter Sciortino's was advertised as an one of the best known Italian bakeries in Milwaukee but does not even bake ciabatta bread. Even though we arrived early, less than an hour after the bakery opened, the few loaves of bread on the shelf looked as if it they were baked by the local IGA grocery store, not an ethnic bakery. Upon entering, we were hoping for the smell of fresh bread, but instead found the bakery to smell like an old donut shop. Although we planned to purchased cookies and cannolis to take home to our daughter, we left without purchasing anything as the older woman behind the counter was extremely rude and gave the impression that her customers were more of a bother than anything. Pros: On Brady Street Cons: Bad Service more

Service with an attitude 6/4/2008

Good cookies, though if I am charged $8.95 per pound or any price for that matter, I would expect that the sales lady who just gave the previous customer their change back not pick up each cookie that I choose with their bare hands. more

Service with an attitude 6/4/2008

Good cookies, though if I am charged $8.95 per pound or any price for that matter, I would expect that the sales lady who just gave the previous customer their change back not pick up each cookie that I choose with their bare hands. That is ridiculous and I wish I had said something... Their salespeople have a tendancy to cop an attitude like they're doing you (the customer) a favor.. Not planning on going back..can only imagine what happens if a cookie is dropped...does it get placed back on the shelf? more

Authentic Italian Bakery 9/8/2007

This is the finest bakery on the east side. The rolls are outstanding, as is the bread. It doesn't even need butter. No wonder so many restaurants serve Sciortino's bakery in their establishments. Italian cookies are authentic and excellent as well. more

Best Pastries EVER! 8/5/2006

When I lived in Madison, I used to plan trips to Milwaukee so I could visit Brady Street for this bakery and a side trip to Glorioso's deli. Their bread is perfect - crusty outside, tender inside. They have these wonderful lemon pastries that are made with hundreds of layers of flaky layers of phyllo dough and a lemon creme. I've never experienced poor service - it's a popular place, and the staff is busy, but I've always been treated promptly and personably by their staff. Pros: Great pastries, high-quality ingredients Cons: Quantities limited - best to get there in the early morning. more

Over rated place 3/16/2005

After reading the two reader reviews, I would have to side more with the first guy. The second reader review guy needs to get up to that place in Menomonee Falls and check out better bread, better prices, and last but not least, people that wait on you that don't act like their doing you a favor! more
