Fisichelli's has the best Italian pastry I've ever had. The cannoli are superb and stuffed to order, and all the cookies are delicious. Fisichelli's is also one of the friendliest places you'll ever shop. They will often give you free cookies to try. I also feel good about supporting a 100-year old business still run by the same family. This bakery is a little gem--it's worth a detour if you're in the Lawrence area or even just driving by Lawrence on Rt. 495.
This place has legit Italian deserts and pastries. I've been to both of there competitors. I have to say the customer service here is far better then both. As for the deserts themselves the huge lobster tail and the macaron brownies are worth the drive. The cake I got was a huge hit with ppl thinking they died and went to heaven. Strong recommendation to try this place.
