I love the fact that you can find items from anywhere across the country. I live in Texas and a lot of the things I love from growing up in CT and NY they just don't have here or the quality is not good. Honestly, everything was great of the things I have ordered.
Maria A. - San Antonio, TX
We can not find struffoli in Virginia and it is my husband’s holiday favorite. Thanks to Goldbelly, we can have the BEST struffoli and Italian cookies from Ferrara’s shipped right to our door!

The chocolate truffle cake was to die for - excellent!
Jane M. - Thornwood, NY
"My husband, a native New Yorker, was delighted! Seems they just don't make those pastries right in western rural Pennsylvania! In addition, when he lived in NYC, Ferrara's was actually the bakery he used to visit! The pastries are just as he remembered, and he enjoyed them very much!"
Lori D. - Jeannette, PA
"It was perfect. I care for my mom she is 92 with a brain tumor. I could not get to the city for vacation to get her favorite cakes. Goldbelly came through for our last holiday with her. Thank you oh so much."

Michelle E. - Chester, NY

Donna W. - Gloucester City, NJ

Michelle B. - Port Charlotte, FL
Everything not only tasted fabulous, it arrived right on time for Thanksgiving! Wonderful!
Kimberley H. - Dunlap, IL
The cheesecake, tiramisu, and chocolate cake were all spectacular - simple ingredients, done the right way. A bit pricey but it seems all of the ingredients is good stuff - and these days a lot of stuff is poor-quality. If you want a consistently excellent bakery, Ferrara Bakery is a good choice - and that’s based on a number of orders I’ve placed over a number of years.
John M. - Lisle, IL
I am in seventh heaven. I ordered strufoli (honey balls) and pignoli (pine nut) cookies, from Ferrara's in NYC. It's two of the desserts my mother used to make when I was a child and a taste of old times is a good experience. They both were almost exactly what she made. Good service, received them exactly when promised. They were shipped well packed, saran wrapped tightly, so no broken cookies or messy strufoli.
Terry W. - Hendersonville, NC
I love the ability to get excellent Ferrara Bakery cookies sent all the way from NYC to California. They were packaged well for freshness.

Having the ability to order foods that you've either had before & realllllly enjoyed, ya know.... foods that evoke great memories....OR trying something new that just looks so good, like you can almost smell the amazing aromas through your phone.... Is such an awesome treat !!!! I don't have to travel hundreds of miles to eat something that brings me back to another time in my life....

I made a mistake with the order. Emailed Goldbelly and was responded to. immediately. Problem solved in 5 minutes. Shipment arrived on time with the correct amount of product.
Mary V. - Winchester, MA
Oh my gosh, these Sfogliatellas are amazing. Without a doubt, all I can say is these are probably the best I have ever had in my 86 years. After baking them for 30 to 40 minutes, they come out with a beautiful slightly crispy crust and filled with delectable filling. I wish I could take them with me when I pass from this earth.
Charles S. - New Port Richey, FL
Delivery was fast, product in box came perfect not crushed, and when I called for help the woman was so kind.
