Excellent fresh bread!! Get it while it lasts. All different kinds of loaves to purchase. I've heard they have great sweets, but I have not tried them.

Gemelli's offers homemade sourdough breads, fresh baked, and couldn't be better. Check the days and times they are open before visiting because hours are limited - but well worth waiting for. They offer some other baked goods and soft pretzels. They can have different items each time you visit and they sell out early, so get there when they open!... More

The most amazing bread in town. If you want the real deal this is it. I wish they were open more often, but you can now find their bread at Wegman's, so that is great.

This is the best bread in the Central PA area. Crusty sourdough and baguettes; excellent variety of artisan breads. These are supplied to many restaurants, to the delight of us patrons. Also, these are available at most State College area Farmers Markets. Tony Sapia's leadership in fine bread-baking is awesome. Try it, you will not be disappointed!

The bread and all the bakery products are divinely good. The owners are very generous as if out of this world, they have always given me presents (a cake here, another bread there etc. what have you) when i bought something at the shop.

This bakery, even if it's not run by Italians, have wonderful Italian bread. I love the Big Seedy and the Cranberry Loafs. They also have sweets and cakes, but if you go there buy a piece of bread. It's a little more expensive than elsewhere though.

We love Gemelli bread and buy it at both the farmers market and at their local small bakery. The bread is consistently very good, but expensive at $5 a loaf. Despite the price we purchase most weeks 😀
