Please help chowhounds!! Need Italian cookies and pastries for a shiva visit for tues afternoon. I go to La Dolce italia bakery on Metrop in forest hills for cakes tarts and black and whites, but don't like their italian cookies...are there any great italian bakeries left in Queens? Used to go to C maretta in Bayside years ago, but they went way downhill...don't want to do greek pastries, and astoria is out of the way...can anyone suggest a great Italian bakery with FRESH italian cookies---it's not easy to find really fresh ones!! Is there one perhaps in Glendale or middle village area?
Thanks for the help!!
