N. S.

Unbelievable food and absolutely beautiful desserts... Best espresso in Jersey. Great place if you're looking for that authentic, European atmosphere.

Syed Sultani

Went here on different occasions but unfortunately the staff here are weird. They act like they have never seen non Italians before. And they are located in a diverse area very odd.

vicki davis

Hello lobster tail-yum. Tried a few other pastries which were good...will definitely go back.

Leonardo De Candia

Tom Scarola

Poor service but good desserts.

Firas A

Wish this place has a branch here in Pittsburgh! It is one of the most delicious peace of desert you can ever eat! Eat it fresh don’t store too long so it doesn’t lose its crunchiness! Highly recommended.

Gus Nadzak

The best deserts around!

Peter Kendall

The sweets are STUNNING! But the seating atmosphere is pretty basic and uninviting. Get your food and get outside.

Samir Patel

Food is outstanding. Go there.

Angela Acevedo

amazing pizza

Scott Olson

Not a good place to go after you get off work. The owner is a total a-hole!! Even when you want to spend money he will look at you like you don't belong. Il never go there again.


Nice little Italian cafe. Bad location though...on the corner of rt46 and rt23 south ugh. I swear I would be there more if the location was anywhere else

jennifer sanzari

Cheryl Citro

Standing shoulder-to-shoulder Christmas Eve. Christmas Day will be the same. Well worth the wait! The most authentic pastries this side of the Atlantic! You will not be disappointed with anything from Palazzone 1960. Friendly, accommodating staff and family. Don't forget to be generous with your tip, they take care of you as quickly as possible and always with a smile. Buon Natale!

Very clean and organized. Pastries are delicious. Prices are very reasonable considering the high quality of the product.

maureen benjamin

YUM!! Pasta Fagioli prosciutto and fresh mozzarella panini on perfect bread followed by cappuccinos and left with a box of sick pastries. The lobster tail pastry will knock your socks off. Had what we agreed to be the BEST canoli we have ever eaten. Can't wait to get back.

Marta Marta

Great great food!

Gregory Bubb

The best pastries around. A little slow but still worth it.

Nancy M

Palazzone 1960 is the closest thing to a bakery in Italy that I have seen in the NJ. Wonderful place

Danny Donovan

Authentic Italian pastries that taste as good as they look!

Richard Laudadio

Lobster tails are insanely good. Great staff who work quickly even when they are busy

Luis Dagoberto Serrano

Ameizing!, Real italian little restaurant. Great ingredients, delicious food!

Ed Ovadia

The pastries are very good, worthy of 5 stars on the quality alone. The lobster tails are tremendous, crunchy exterior with a perfectly balanced creamy interior. A must try!

Fay Khan

The pistachio cream puff was my absolute favorite. We tried the assorted cookies which were okay and the strawberry mousse cake which was good. Will return to try coffee and some other pastries.

Paul Wurzel

Today February 26th service from the kitchen was horrible ...40 minutes for a lunch where crowd was very small at noon ...I give this place a pass though cause service is usually very good

Dharma Devi Kundalini Rhythms

The best and most original Italian pastry in all NJ and NY ... I’m Italian and I know what I’m talking about. I go there as much as I can

Brigitte Narcise

Their gelato, sfogliotelle & lobster tail pastries are definitely a worthwhile treat - and although I don’t typically like desserts, these are just perfectly oh-so-very-lightly sweetened and yummy. Great soups, lunch specials and coffees for a quick authentic, legitimate tiny little Italy right here in NNJ.

Mathew Issac

Great experience coming here..very good food, clean place, and the staff are friendly. :)

Juan Rojas

The decor is amazing. The pastries and cookies are delicious and we absolutely love all their drinks. Try the Capri and the Amalfi!

Guadalupe Rodriguez

Good business and everything very good, your staff very friendly

Enisa Yilmaz

Excellent fresh pastries


Stopped in for the first time for a caprese sandwich and some cannolis. Both were amazing. Need to come back. Crowded at lunchtime.

Anthony Rivera

Best pastries in Jersey.

Matthew Pontoriero

An authentic taste of Italy from the good gelato to the great pastries and cookies to the delicious espresso. Why go anywhere else?

wFrank Corso

Great pastry. Nice staff. You can't go wrong there.

Christine Kebakis

Do not miss the lobster tail flakey and filled with delicious creme. Great staff fresh desserts, haven't tried the meals yet


Incredibly fantastic Place. Fantastic pastries. Incredible people. It's a must go. If you love Italian cuisine with A Touch of Home you will love it.

Louis Anderson

Great pastries at reasonable prices. I enjoy stopping there for a special treat. You can find a wide variety of fresh pastry items that you cannot find in a supermarket bakery section. It is a delight to have a real bake shop

Sal Gencarelli

Best FFFFF bakery in NJ. Hands FFFFFF DOWN!!!!

cindy glyck

I love to come here for lunch! The food is delicious and made fresh.

Mary Moscarello Gutierrez

When you arrive you have died and gone to pastry heaven. Trust me, nothing will compare to the delicious and delicate delights they have on hand. They treat each customer like honored guests. Highly recommend!

Seth Pullen

Wonderful Italian bakery! The only minor downside about this place is the location is a little painful to get to and the parking lot is small....other than that, this place is really great. All kinds of delectable italians pastries and sweets. Cannolis are rich creamy and delicious.


If you want authentic italian desserts this place is a must.

Samia Pendleton

One of my favorite places to eat in NJ. I love the desserts,

Mike Mann

Delicious pastry, and friendly staff.


Giancarlo is soooooo good

J Zoom

All I can say is yummmm especially to their signature cream, but parking is ridiculously limited.

Ken Black

Ask Slongzino himself to make you his special hot chocolate!


We visit Palazzone 1960 occasionally once in every few months and like it here each time we visit. Couple of times we came with our friends and they liked the place as well. There is a good selection of coffees to choose from and there is vast selection of desserts to loose onself. We have tried different varierties of coffees here, Verona, Mokaccino, Milano and Firenze and think of this place when we feel like drinking speciality coffees. This time we simply got cappuccino and hot chocolate to go and they also tasted great. We try and taste different desserts each time though lobster tail is a repetition as hubby likes it. The dessert sizes are usually mini which I like and yet they are somewhat filling. One of the times we also got assorted cookies and they were all very good, addictive actually. The service here is very cordial. The other day while we were at here, there was a kid next to us who saw a cookie and was asking her mom, meanwhile one of the staff, wonder if he is the owner, gave the kid the cookie to sample and the kid was very happy. Its always nice to witness cordial staff. Hope they continue to keep up the good spirit even in the future. Also, the gentleman who prepared our cappuccino and hot chocolate did so with patience despite the store being crowded and did a very good job. We truly enjoy coming here...

Lorena Alvarez

I love this place! It has the most amazing variety of pastries and simple Italian food. Portions are small but filling, staff is friendly and atmosphere is very homely.

tanya magliano

Real italian pastries!! Owners are nice!

Leonardo Molino

Want AUTHENTIC Italian coffe bar/pastry/restaurant experience? This is the place to go. The owners are Italian (as in born and raised in Italy), some of the staff is too, and a lot of the customers are as well. Pastries are awesome, they have REAL espresso, and the food is also great . As an Italian expat myself I highly reccomend this place. Only negative thing in my opinion is the location. It's kind of isolated and you would expect a place like this to be in some old downtown strip instead of being next to the freeway.

huti cooper

Great food

Matthew Salzano

My favorite Cafe!

Ottavio Zuccarello

I am Italian and I feel home when I visit Palazzone. This place is a real Italian pastry shop. Fabulous selection of pastry from many regions of Italy. Stupendous lunch restaurant, small menu ' and delicious. The pastry chef Giancarlo is truly an ambassador of Italian tradition. Grazie mi date sempre un emozione.

Patrice Fader

Amazing Italian pastries!!!

Bryan Aiello

This place is legit for Italian pastries. Everything is good. Shall they live forever!

Robert Genuardi

Highly recommend Palazzone 1960. Lunches are amazing, and the pastries are by far the best I have ever had. The sfogliatelle are to die for.

Jean O'Reilly

A must go for the full Northern New Jersey experience for any true foodie! Visually mind blowing, best pastries around, hands down. You can sit inside and enjoy a treat & fresh coffee also. Parking is ample however, the parking lot must be approached from south to north 23 only.

Frank Venezia

A great place

Lauren Castelbuono

Worth every penny. Tried this for the first time yesterday. Their lobster tails are outrageous. Best I ever had. Makes you feel like they're right from italy!!

Elsa Cannella

Elaine Delvecchio

Best pastries and cakes ever at good prices.

Sarah Fisher

Lobster tail is delicious! If you are in the area definitely stop by and pick up a few pastries.

Erica Savi

The best pastries in New Jersey!

Branden Maffei

there lunch is awesome. there pastries are the best in the one even close

Fred Alluso

It doesn't get any more authentic than the Italian specialties available at Palazzone 1960. Everything from the zeppole di San Giuseppe to the holiday panettone, delicious coffees and the Giancarlo Palazzone is truly a master at his craft. Those visiting should be aware that the cafe is closed on Mondays, and that everyday is good for amaretti cookies. Looking forward to my next visit or order.

jennet R

Delicious pastry and cute shop .

SangHo Lee

Most delicious bakery in Wayne, nj

Bibi Rivera

This was a hidden gem for me. I passed it so many times leaving the mall and never realizing its there. So many different desserts to choose from and alot of speciality coffees.


So I have passed this place so many times and never thought to go in. Thankfully I went in recently and the pastries and the coffee are both amazing, fresh, and of good quality. The staff was also speedy pleasant and professional. The two negatives i had was walking not being sure where the line is and feeling a little crammed. I love when a place is busy and turnover is high bc provides a fresh product but they need to rearrange the front and maybe even remove the shelving product that takes away space for ppl to wait/look. Lastly i Strongly recommend having people take tickets similar to that of a deli because walking in and trying to find a line or trying make yourself known is a little bit awkward so I think just getting a ticket would make everything a lot easier and more efficient

Desiree M

Food is amazing and the people are so nice! I can't wait to come back here for lunch next time!

Bashar Hamid

Tony Belle

Eddie H

Legit Sicilian pastries and very legit espresso. The food is solid but honestly go for a cafe and pastry and you will not be disappointed.

anthony colandro

As close to Italy as you will ever find in NJ. The pastry’s are excellent and the lunch offerings are truly a taste of Italy. Highly recommend.

Leah Dillon

The lobster tails here are the best i have had! The gourmet coffees are simply the best!

William Pryor

Lobster claws are the best

Stefania Jancewicz

Visiting relatives in NJ, they brought pastries and I died and went to heaven! I'm Italian, 100%, old school all the way. This flashed me back to my childhood. The cannoli and the lobster tails were flaky, creamy and amazing! The cookies were buttery and light, with just the right amount of chocolate! Can't wait to try more!

Sheila Montanez

I went with my family I ordered as soon as we walked in we saw the tables and decided to sit down and the waitress had a big problem with that I guess it was about the tip but if she would've had better customer service it wasn't a big deal to leave something but she treated us horrible don't think I would ever go back

Mariana Mihai

Great rum cake. The best!

Lynne Sacher

The best pastries, with Bavarian cream gillings.

Antonino Dimartino

Charles Raymond

A lot of nice selections of pastries and coffee are delicious. Love their desserts. It was my first time there.

Stopped in for lunch. The sandwiches are wonderful! Prosciutto is sliced perfectly and just the right amount of seasoning and olive oil. Finished off with a terrific cappuccino.

Anthony Miranda

Very authentic Italian food that brings me right back to my roots. The food I grew up on a must try for all!! Excellent food, service and friendly staff.


Palazzone bakery is by far the best bakery in the Tri-State area. The staff is wonderful, polite and attentive. The food is outstanding. Also the owner is an extremely nice person and they make everyone feel comfortable.

Frank Schiavone

Great place for lunch. It makes me feel like I'm back in Italy.

Soody Nelson

A wonderful piece of Italy in NJ! We have had many of the daily specials, sandwiches, soups, pastries and cakes. Each is fresh and delicious. The owner’s passion for great food and service is obvious.

Doreen Mahon

This place is amazing, friendly, great fresh ingredients, service fast. Highly recommend!

Jonathan Papamarkos

The best bakery, period and the price is very reasonable. Fresh, Italian pastries in an Italian Cafe atmosphere. A real pasticceria outside of Italy. Palazzone 1960 is our only choice when we want to bring pastries to our family.

giselle herrera

Their pastries are delicious. The place looks very clean. The workers are very nice and friendly. The employees actually knew the answer to any questions we had about the pastries, unlike many other places I have gone to. Not sure if it was the owner (but it appeared to be) and he was very friendly. Especially to my daughter. The environment is great. Will definately be going back !!

carlo carlo

Great Place, great people, great food, of corse if you Like Italian. Pastry are exceptional. Bravo

Nazly Shariati

It is hands down the best pastry shop in NJ. If you havent tried their gelatos, please do. Ever since I discovered them last year, I have stopped going to NYC to get my pastries. The staff is also very pleasant ALL THE TIME!! No matter how busy they are. OUTSTANDING SHOP!!

Gloria Mejia

Visually appealing like the displays in cafes in Italy. Taste does not disappoint!

cisco zap

This place has the absolute best coffee and italian baked goods. Such a lively atmosphere and real Italians come here and eat and speak italian. It truly has some delicious baked goods. Really fast service and you come in and enjoy your baked good there in their tables inside.

Zack Biskup

The cappuccino from this place made by Alexa was phenomenal. The environment in here is relaxing and family oriented.

Lobster tails and the cannolis and the cream puffs are amazing and they're super friendly I love this place I feel like family every time I go in and they're espressos and different type of coffees are amazing too just everything about this place is amazing you have to go

Maciej Leja

This place is great. The parking is a little small but the pastries are unbelievable. Lobster tails are the best

Heather Crawford

I’ve hesitated writing this review for a few years because we wanted to keep this gem of a place to ourselves, but I see the secret is out! Do yourself a favor and just go. Everything is delicious, fresh, and homemade. The lobster tails are to DIE for (our family has given up having birthday cakes in lieu of a bunch of lobster tails set up to look like a cake with a candle stuck in the middle! Yes, they are that good). We have been to Italy several times and every time we eat a pastry there we look at each other and exclaim “it’s better at Palazzone!”


Service is excellent Food & Pastry is to die for

Russ Miller

Great expresso and delightful Italian pastries. Go for lunch, the sandwiches are great.

Jim Benevenga

Always a good experience. Excellent pastries

Prianka G

Love their tiramisu cake!!!

Youssouf Sanogo

The place is amazing! You really get a taste of what it is like to be in Italy! Amazing coffee and amazing pastries. You are missing out if you have not eaten here.

Loryn Gannon

Hot chocolate and coffee drinks are amazing! Rated 4 stars instead of 5 due to lack of dessert options. Better for take out for pastries and cakes not for having dessert there.

JEM Realty Group

So so good. Love stopping in for a Latte and Cannoli

Gregory Nie

Great bakery , best lobster tails in the tri-state area .

Chad Tobin

Get the truffle ravioli for lunch and a lobster claw for dessert and have one of the best Italian meals of your life.

Clara Novotny

I give it a 5 star. I love this bakery. The presentation of the pastries are very nice and also they taste delicious. The cakes are decorated beautiful. They have a lot of customers that shows that the place is good. It is a very clean place and has a good atmosphere. The staff that works there are very helpful in explaining what the pastries consist of when you ask. I would highly recommended it.

Earl Grosser

Delicious and nominally priced desserts are a most if you've ever thought of trying out this location. Teri9038
