Profile

Gino’s Pastry Shop has been an Arthur Avenue institution since 1960. The place, charming in its old-time simplicity, is wallpapered with photos and signatures of famous regulars like Joe Pesci, Al Pacino, and Ray Romano. You might even see local hero, A Bronx Tale star Chazz Palminteri, stopping by to pick up a signature birthday cake filled with smooth, authentically flavored cannoli cream. The tubular pastries are the spot’s best sellers, but the small storefront is filled with dozens of other cookies, pastries, and cakes. Highlights include a boxy Italian cheesecake—dense and moist—powdered amaretto cookies that have a satisfying soft give and gentle almondine taste, and rustic little biscotti fingers made for dunking into a cup of cappuccino. The original Gino passed the business on to his son Jerome, in 1990. You can usually spot him sitting at an old messy desk chatting with customers, many of whom he’s known for years. There’s just a single small table up front, but if you manage to snag it, prepare to be regaled with stories of neighborhood goings-on.
