If you want fine European pastries this is the place to go. It is family owned and run by a husband and wife. Limited days and hours but well worth adjusting your schedule to pick up some of these delectable treats. His patience and experience shows through his work. Every pastry is hand crafted and designed to perfection. He and his wife are very nice and love to chat with their customers when time allows. After coming home with these Awesome pastries our guests raved about them and asked where we got them. We were sure to tell them, Giancarlo's Fine European bakery. We will be back for sure.

This family owned bakery has the BEST cakes ever. I am not a cake person myself, but this cake was great! They do custom order cakes, which we took advantage of to make a White Chocolate, Lemon, Raspberry cake with Vanilla Buttercream. The cake was not too yucky sweet. It had a great fruitiness that you'll rarely find elsewhere. The buttercream was so light, fluffy and airy. Since we don't live in VA, my daughter was very disappointed that she won't be able to get another cake next year, or for any other family events/birthdays. The cakes are amazing! If we're ever back in the area, we'll have to stop by and get some type of treat, because this cake beats all. (Including some of the slices we had in France!!!)
Highly recommend this place!!! The cakes are amazing, and so is the price!

Found this out of the way place on Trip Advisor, and it was worth it! We were warmly greeted by the owners, and soon were chatting as if we were old friends. It was so interesting listening to Giancarlo and his love of creating great desserts.
We had the cannoli, croissants, éclair and a apple pastry, All great, but the cannoli was fantastic! Loved the cream inside, the sheep's milk does make a difference. They are only open Friday and Saturday, so next time we are in the area we will be back!
