Italian Cookies

A Taste of Italy is Just Around the Corner.

Nestled among the side-streets of the historic Old Uptown neighborhood of Harrisburg there sits a corner shop of culinary delights; a place where carefully preserved Old World recipes and imported ingredients come together as freshly-made Italian breads, desserts and pasta. Alvaro's Bread and Pastry Shoppe brings an authentic taste of Italy home to Central Pennsylvania. Come inside and enjoy!
