Lou from Del Prete made the best tasting Cannoli wedding cake I've ever tasted(which is a lot of cannoli cakes since we've been looking for one for over a year now). I had been searching for the best cannoli filling cake all around CT (trying all the most popular Italian bakery shops and small shops). After having his, we knew we had to have it for our wedding cake without a doubt. We tried both the cannoli filling cake with the cannoli crust inside, and with the regular cake layers inside and both were really great, but we ended up going with the regular cake layers because it was softer and it looked more like "wedding cake" when we cut into it. Being from the new haven area, it was a bit of a trip to get to the bakery in Bridgeport, however, well worth it and so glad we did. Lou also collaborated with my florist and decorated the cake with flower layers between the tiers and it looked great. The women behind the counter at the bakery were also really nice. Not only is this the best place for cannoli cake, but the cookies are awesome there too. Thanks Lou!

Our wedding cake came out perfect! It was so beautiful and tasted amazing. They were always available to speak with about the details of the cake whenever I went in or called. I would not have gone anywhere else!

The cake was as delicious as it was beautiful. In my experience, not many people eat traditional wedding cake, but when you have a cannoli cake from Del Prete Italian Pastry, guests are begging for second helpings of the wedding cake! they even decorated the cake with the flowers that the florist had left as the cake arrived later than the florist. VERY HAPPY INDEED!

Where do I begin? The two things our guests have not stopped talking about since our wedding are the music (DJ) and the cake. Del Prete is a top notch bakery that many other vendors could learn from, especially with regards to customer service. Del Prete was far more affordable (and worlds better in taste!) than their local counterparts. We scheduled our cake tasting during Easter weekend, and there was a line out the door. When we approached the counter, we learned that the owner had baked *substantial* samples for us to take with us and apologized that he couldn't be there as we tried them. My (now) husband and I sat in the car for about a half hour, not speaking, and just devouring the cakes. When we got to the yellow cake with cannoli filling, we knew that was the one. Some of our guests admitted that the cake was so good, they resorted to pilfering cake from other tables while guests were on the dance floor! There were some challenges getting in touch with the owner on a consistent basis, but all that was overshadowed by the professionalism, quality, value, and excellence of the staff and our cake. I would *highly* recommend Del Prete for your wedding cake.

I luckily tasted a Del Prete canoli cake before my wedding and was absolutely amazed! It was delicious and unique. I never even knew you could make a canoli cake - unbelieveable. Lou was helpful and made it exactly the way I wanted it. He did the three square tier cake w/ the swiss dots that looked so cute. My florist loaded it up w/ flowers. The cake was very reasonably priced and to be cost efficient I only had him make the display cake for 60 and bought a canoli sheet cake for 125. They were so nice in delivering the cake to New Haven at the exact time I wanted. Lou was even willing to change the type of icing that day depending on the weather. It was nice to be able to trust someone to make that last minute decision without having to do anything.
