The smell of baked goods that hits you right when you walk in the door is the best. It just feels authentic. I love that they have bread on racks and cookies and pastries sitting right on top of the counter, and hundreds of cookies/biscotti/cannoli sitting in their display case. We got a bear claw/sticky bun type thing, a very large black and white cookie, and an almond cannoli. The cannoli stole the show. At $3 it wasn't particularly cheap, but it wasn't expensive. Our total bill came to around $8.50 which isn't bad for 3 delicious pastries. I saw they also had calzones, pizza, and lasagna which all looked delicious (I think they were priced between $5-9). The man working behind the counter was very nice, and very patient while I stood there wide-eyed trying to decide what fatty goodness I wanted. I will definitely make a return trip to Dolce Sicilia-- just for a dose of authenticity.

This review is for two things, the tri color cookie, and the pistachio cannoli. 1) the tri color cookie- was more like cake, the chocolate was sooooo good and rich, the cake part was so moist it was some of the best i have had, even better than most places in NYC . 2) the cannoli- very good it didn't have the fruit inside which i do not like, and had just a hint of cinnamon. i got the ones with pistachios which is a nice touch. i do wish the shell was more crispy but it was definitely cooked enough, i think once it''s in the case it gets soggy. overall some of the best Italian baked goods so far here.

Malto Bene!!! We drive 18 miles roundtrip just for their long Italian bread loaves.  Now, I know what you're thinking.  "No bread is worth such a special trip."  Well go 'gitch ya some,' before you judge me.  Hands down the best bread in Denver that will make your knees quiver.   Don't forget to score some panettone for the holidays.   Ahhh baked goods Xanadu!

Stopped in today after driving by for years.  Cute little shop (little being the operative word here), lots of different types of cookies.  Pizza and some calzone-y things in the case. Very clean and tidy. FANTASTIC tiramisu!!! Authentic!!! Lady fingers actually tasted like they're soaked in espresso and liquer, as they should be. SO many places skip this step and chintz out and just dump coffee on it, like it's all the same. SO not the same. I'll have to come back and try them for lunch, then I'll increase my rating if the food is anywhere NEAR as good as this tiramisu!

Best cookies in the city, seriously. Pizza is good too. I grew up with Sicilian grandparents baking the real deal and this is as close as it gets, though I'm not crazy about the wine cookies here. Good flavor but tough to pull off being prepared in advance, best eaten within a day or two so packaging those up is kind of tough. That is just one small detail.

The cookies are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G (even at $14 a pound!) Dolce Sicilia has a placard announcing a Primo Award (annual recognition of the best in Colorado's Italian American community), for best ITALIAN BAKERY. I concur. This little strip mall on the NE corner of Wadsworth and 32nd Ave. is easy to miss. Dolce Sicilia sits on the north side and get the full sun, which warms up the room quickly, even on a cool fall day. Immediately inside, you are greeted by bread of all shapes and sizes (see pic.)  Go around the corner and you will be amazed by the variety, colors and flavors of Italian sweets in the display cabinets. I had a square slice of the the Mediterranean Pizza - "real" olives, goat cheese (?) artichokes, onions - Delish. The sausage calzone (segment of a huge roll) was meaty and flavorful too. Chunks of sausage, onions, cheese; not too much dough. Tasty. $12.63 1-Slice of Mediterranean Pizza 1-Sausage Calzone 3-Farfelle  Butter Apricot/Raspberry butter cookies I did feel a little rushed making my choices. The owner patiently answered my questions although I wish he had chilled out a little and given me more time to look at the menu and displays of bread and desserts, which is extensive. I recognized Biscotti, of course and Pizelles. They also had a very pretty pine nut cookie ( and they were generous with the pine nuts too!) Oh, and the almond cannolis also. Homemade; not frozen (like the chain bakeries.) Too many to list (besides I cannot remember their Italian names anyway!) Also, selling "Panettone," the traditional holiday sweet bread. Go! Enjoy!

I don't get here as often as I would like because it is to hell and gone from my house in Wash Park - probably a good thing for my waistline.  There was a talk thread today about Italian bakeries and it reminded me of how wonderful this place is.  When I simply must have Italian baked goods, which happens this time of the year because I must have pannetone, this is the place to go.  They've been named the top Italian bakery in Colorado umpteen times by some society of Italian baked good  lovers and I totally agree.  Great baked goods of all kinds - cookies, breads, biscotti, sfogliatelle, you name it - they got it.  Yes, it's in Wheat Ridge but it's worth the trip.  Normally I prefer French pastry to Italian but I am seriously rethinking that since visiting this wonderful place.

Happened to be waiting for a bus outside the shop, went in and found the array of fresh baked goods to good to be true. Had a slice of pizza, $4.50 and was a meal unto it's self.

ONE WORD, SFOGLIATELLE! The Best Italian Bakery in town, our family of "off the boat" Sicilians regularly drives across town to take home several containers full of their homemade cookies and pastries. From fresh made from scratch biscotti & brownie cookies to Pignoli and Sfogliatelle. You have to try all of Franco's creations to truly appreciate how amazing this place really is. I only go for the cookies and pastries but they also serve lunch and dinner, which I am sure is delicious. It's just too hard to skip the two enormous display cases full of cookies to order anything else.

Well, I still buy my bread here and on occasion a cookie or pastry but I don't do the sausage cannolis/calzones here anymore. Of course the bread wrap is good and the sausage flavor is fine but I believe they bake the sausage in a sheet and then slice it before wrapping it with their great bread. This usually works, but because of too much of a good thing (the sausage is almost two inches thick by two and a half inches wide and four inches long) the proportion of dry meat (double baked) to bread just doesn't work for me. Nit-picking I know but just thought I'd put it out there. You can tell a good bakery as you walk through the door. The aroma of fresh baked bread is an instant tell. We've tried several of their breads, their cookies, and their sausage canoli (I think they called it something else but it was italian sausage with a bread dough wrap). All were very good and really reasonably priced. I'm so used to Italian cookies being dry like biscotti that I was kind of surprised at the moistness of their cookies. I'm so used to the drier cookies that I think I kind of prefer them (go figure) but I think that's because of my infatuation with bean tea (coffee). Dolce Sicilia is another good place.

This place rocks!  Best cookies I have ever had.  I'll drive half an hour, one way, just to pick up a pound of their cookies!
