“The World's BEST Bakery!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2014

As a kid, I used to walk 2 miles, one way, for fresh bread for my "Nana's" homemade spaghetti sauce. 40 years later, it's even better. Having not lived in Gloucester for that many years, I've traveled back occasionally to visit family. However, I have never missed an opportunity to score some Virgilio's bread to take back to Virginia. It's always a fight with the sibling's! However, I always make sure Dad get's his childhood staple!

“Great Bakery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

Everything very fresh. The bread is to die for. All cold cuts and deli meats are excellent in quality. They have many daily specials everyday.

Best everything! Try it all. True Italian goodness in every bite. Nice people, busy place, the best cannolis on earth and that is NOT overselling.

“Amazing Sandwiches”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2013

We were recommended to go here by a local and we were not disappointed. There was a line at the door (always a good sign) on our Saturday afternoon stop. We had a large array of sandwiches (9 friends) and everyone was delighted Bread baked fresh daily and it really tasted like it Highly recommend it (and the Dean Martin music playing on an outside speaker as you wait)
