Fodor's Review

The gamble of importing an entire Italian bakery direct from Brescia, Italy, definitely paid off. Most days, the sandwiches, fresh baked breads, and pastries sell out even before lunchtime. All products are made fresh daily (except Monday), beginning at 4 am, by a team of bakers who can be seen hard at work through the café's glass windows. Customers line up at the door early in the morning to get their piping-hot artisanal breads, later returning for the scrumptious paninis and decadent desserts. A second branch, five blocks east on Las Olas at 704 East Las Olas Boulevard, called Gran Forno Pronto, offers full service and a more extensive menu seven days a week and stays open until 11 pm.
