  • Maria of Only the Finest Italian Cookies & Espresso did a wonderful job providing the cookies, cannoli's, espresso, cappuccino and cold brew for our daughter's wedding in R.I. We are a big Italian family from CT and while we have some wonderful Italian bakeries in CT, we were struggling to find a place in R.I. who could provide us with what we were looking for. We happened to find Maria and we were so pleased with what her company was able to do. Her communication was great even during extremely difficult times of COVID. The wedding was on and off again a number of times and when we finally settled on the event happening despite many changes in set-up to keep people safe, Maria and her staff worked wonderfully with the catering staff to ensure everything was perfect. Everything was delicious and we had many guests thrilled with the ability to bring cookies and treats home. The most important thing was the bride was very happy with her cold brew and the groom loved the cannoli's!

  • Maria does such an amazing job with her Italian cookie displays! She first did my engagement party in October 2018, and after all the amazing reviews from family and friends I knew I had to have a cookie display at our wedding as well! Her cookies were such a hit with our wedding guests - I even ordered cookies as a Christmas gift for a family member! The cookie display at our wedding in October at the Rosecliff mansion really elevated our dessert room and was the perfect addition to our dessert display. I didn’t have to worry about a thing - Maria did a beautiful job setting up and even making a special box with all of my specific favorite cookies! You can never go wrong with Italian cookies, especially at an Italian wedding :-)

  • If you want real Italian cookies, this is your vendor! The cookies are amazing and their set up at your wedding is classy and elegant. They set everything up and clean up, which they are very fast and efficient. Everyone at my wedding was talking about how great the cookies were. I added the expresso, which was a great touch. I am so glad I could have real authentic Italian cookies at a great price. Maria is a sweetheart and makes sure everything is to your standard. Highly recommend!!!!

  • I cannot say enough great things about Only The Finest Italian Cookies & Espresso. My husband and I got married in August of 2017 and the espresso service and Italian cookie display were amazing!! My husband and I wanted to provide our guests with a little something extra at our wedding. Maria was incredibly helpful throughout the planning process. Our guests are still raving about the espresso and Italian cookies over a year after our wedding! Don’t look any further, book Only The Finest!

  • I met Ana Louise at a bridal show a few weeks after I had gotten engaged. I had yet to set a wedding date or visit a single venue, but upon tasting Ana Louise's delicious cookies I knew I had to book Only the Finest Italian Cookies. Following the setting of a date and booking a venue I emailed Ana Louise to ask if she was available on my wedding day. She quickly responded and gave me a quote, but mentioned we could work together to find a price that fit with my budget. A few days later Only the Finest was booked. I was extremely happy with the price and could tell that Only the Finest would be fantastic to work with. A few months before my wedding (before the craze of meeting with vendors to finalize details so her timing was appreciated) Maria, Ana Louise's daughter, reached out to confirm details and to send some information for me to fill out. Maria's attention to detail was incredible. She confirmed wedding colors with me (so she could make sure her colors complimented mine) ... Read more

  • Ana Louise is a gem. Her business Only The Finest Italian Cookies is a treasure. If you want quality and quantity look no further. My grandson's Christening was celebrated this past weekend. On our dessert table were Wandis & Italian Cookies from Only The Finest. The Wandis were light, delicate, delicious, crispy creations beautifully displayed on a tray with coordinating ribbon! The Italian Cookie tray had a variety of all the freshness and deliciousness cookies should be. Please note that the cookies Ana makes are each made from their own dough with their own flavor. Definitely not one dough (that many places use) decorated differently. Only The Finest Cookies have their own distinct taste, beautifully decorated and just the right size. Our guests just oohed and aahed over the cookies & Wandis! If you are looking for quality and quantity to satisfy your guests and yourself, Ana Louise and her Only The Finest Italian Cookies is a treasure worth doing business with. I had her cooki...

  • Having Ana Louise from Only the finest Italian Cookies was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. My husband and I recently got married on April 2nd and we chose to have Ana Louise as a treat for us and our guests. Everything from her espresso, cappuccinos, cookies and even the presentation were amazing. Ana Louise even went out of her way to coordinate the cookies and her table presentation to our color scheme. As soon as the cookie and barista station opened there was a line the whole night. Also our venue and Ana planned everything together so it took the stress off us to plan for the Italian Cookies. Ana is a sweetheart and I'm so glad we had her at our wedding. Thank you again for everything .

  • Ana Louise's cookies and wandies are exceptional. Working with her was simply wonderful. She made 72 trays for our large wedding- one tray of cookies and one tray of wandies for every table, each tied with a beautiful bow. The trays themselves were decorative pieces! She baked such a variety of Italian cookies so there was something for everyone - they were absolutely delicious. Truly the best Italian cookies and wandies I have ever had. We could tell how much care and love went into each tray! Thank you Ana Louise!

  • We recently held a celebration for our daughter's Christening at the Dorrance. There were about 100 guests and Ana Louise's cookie display and espresso service stole the show. Not only is it the most elegant cookie display you will find, the quality of the cookies are second to none. It is very hard to find high quality traditional Italian cookies and these are the best my family has had. Ana Louise showed up with a ton of variety and each cookie better than the next. Everyone enjoyed espresso and coffee drinks before, during and after dinner and couldn't get enough of hanging around her display. When she noticed there were 15 children running around while the adults were still eating she decided to make hot chocolate for all of them! As a result Ana Louise will be doing my cousin's wedding and will be a staple at any function I do in the future. Simply the best isn't enough to describe--- her cookies, service and attitude is World Class.

  • I used Only The Finest Italian cookies for my nieces baby shower. The cookie tray presentation was beautiful and the quality and taste of the cookies equaled perfection. Obviously, Ana Louise bakes with love and top notch ingredients. I would definitely recommend Only The Finest Italian cookies to anyone planning a special event or occasion. I will totally use her again! In fact, I will be ordering her fabulous cookie tray this holiday season!!

  • Ana Louise - I cannot thank you enough for helping to leave a lasting impression on our wedding guests. The cookies and wandis were fabulous. You could tell by the taste of these cookies and wandis that only the finest ingredients are used. Also the presentation in the trays was outstanding. We also utilized Only the Finest Italian Cookies Espresso/Cappuccino station which was off the chart. From the Barrister to the espresso and cappuccino machines the service was phenomenal. The quality of the product was top notch. I couldn't ask for anything more. If you are looking for something to "WOW" your guests and leave that lasting impression with them, contact Ana Louise at Only the Finest Italian Cookies and she will make it happen.

  • Ana Louise is lovely - she is clearly passionate about her business, family, and making her clients happy. Those traits are reflected in the quality of the cookies! Not only were they absolutely delicious, the presentation was magical! Tiers and tiers of the best Italian cookies: what more could a bride need?! Many of our guests commented on how beautiful the display was. It was the perfect compliment to the cakes we ordered. I was impressed with the personal note included in the Invoice, as well as her quick response to our request. She even had another wedding that same day and it was flawless! If you want authentic Italian cookies at your wedding, Only The Finest is where you should go!!
