  • Would give 0 stars if I could. My wedding venue Marina Del Ray partners with this bakery so they confirmed with them 1 year before my wedding that they could make my dream wedding cake- they told me they could for an added charge of 600 dollars which I gladly paid. All year I was so excited for this cake. The day of my wedding when I saw it I was super disappointed. It looked like a cheap knockoff version of my cake. My matre d who was absolutely amazing immediately got them on the phone and the baker told him to put me on speaker. This baker was completely nasty to me on my wedding day telling me it looks exactly like the picture. I was standing with 7 other workers from the Marina who agreed with me that it looked horrible compared to picture. This baker continues to tell me that basically I’m blind and to him it’s identical. Obviously I’m aware at this point there’s nothing that could be done but I would have at least expected an I’m sorry or we’ll make it right in the ... Read more

    We’d like to respond to some of the comments that you made. We did not charge you $600, the venue did. A great deal of the expense of this cake was the Swarovski crystals. At no point did you come in or speak to us directly. You did everything through the venue. We knew about this cake for a couple of months, but had you taken the time to come in, or at the very least, look at our website, you would’ve seen examples of our cakes, you would’ve seen the height of the cake that we normally make. If that was such a priority to you, it seems that you should’ve made arrangements to talk to us directly. As for the conversation that took place the night of your wedding, while i was driving, I pulled over to look at the picture you sent. You kept on referring to the shape, which was not the complaint as it turned out. Your complaint was about the height of your cake, which I figured out when I got home. Each tier was bit shorter than the picture, but again, had you spoken directly to us, we would’ve shown you what are cakes typically look like. Had the height difference been made clear, we could’ve resolved this. We would’ve had a discussion about how taller cakes would have more sponge and that the normal ratio of sponge to filling would then be off. At that point we could’ve decided what the best course of action would be. We do understand and are sorry you were disappointed, but we feel that the failure to communicate was shared, not solely ours. We sent a picture to the maitre’d, and there comment was that “it looks better than the original” But at NO point did I call or infer that you were blind. We’ve had actual blind people in our family and would never stoop to that. I get you being disappointed & after giving this some thought over the past few days, I should’ve insisted that you come in prior to your wedding. (That will be the protocol going forward as a result of this, if it’s not from our website of over 1000 pictures, we will require speaking directly to the person ordering the cake.) Perhaps had we spoken after the event, as opposed to during, while you were at the event and I was driving, we would’ve come to an understanding and work something out, but that’s fine, perhaps we’re simply not a match.

  • Our wedding was on 6/30/2018 at Mulino's at Lake Isle, and they have a contract with Sal & Dom's Bakery for wedding cakes. I am so happy we ended up going with Sal & Dom's instead of choosing another bakery ourselves. I wanted a 4-tier simple white cake that would then be decorated with flowers from our florist. I chose vanilla cake with whipped cream and fresh strawberries for the filling. The cake was beautiful and all of my guests were raving about how great the cake tasted! I'm not a big cake person myself, but I ate the entire piece because it was so fresh and delicious! The cake looked great with the flowers and we were so happy with how everything turned out. Highly recommend!

  • Both my and my husband's families have been going to Sal & Dom's for decades, so there was no question that we would go to them for our wedding desserts. People raved about the Italian cookies and pastries - everything was fresh and delicious, as always! We asked if they could do a giant cannoli stuffed with mini cannoli as our "wedding cake" and they did not disappoint. Literally a highlight of our wedding. Nothing but love for Sal & Dom's. Still some of the best cannoli in the Bronx. Thank you!

  • Excellent Cakes!! My venue had a contract with Sal and Dom's, After all the weddings we have gone to and trying their cakes I knew we couldn't go wrong. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. I must have changed my design 3 times and gave me up until 2 days before my wedding to change my mind! We highly recommend them. Their fresh strawberry filling with whip cream made a hit! Thank you so much Sal and Dom's Pastry!!

  • They were able to create the most beautiful nautical wedding cake for me. It wasnt on their list of cakes they designed. It did not cost extra for a custom cake. They cake itself was also delicious! I did not even want to save my cake until next year. We ate the cake over the week after our wedding!

  • Beautiful and delicious. My cake was amazingly perfect in every possible way. Thank you to the staff at Sal & Dom's but mostly a big thank you to Carlo. He designed my cake, he created it and he went himself to Villa Barone Manor to deliver and put the finishing touches on it. EVERYONE said that the cake (marble cake) was delicious but they couldn't stop complimenting how beautiful it was. I am a perfectionist so a perfectly sculpted cake was a must at my wedding. Carlo from Sal & Dom's made sure that my cake was perfect, it didn't even have a single flaw. Thank you Carlo from the bottom of my heart for giving us such a beautiful wedding cake to always remember. We'll be by soon for some cakes and pastries!!!!!!!

  • As always, Sal & Dom made amazing desserts and most of all a beautiful cake for our wedding. They recommended amazing flavors that were just what we were looking for. We went through their website and found a design we liked and they found the exact color we needed! Day of the wedding, the cake was absolutely beautiful and oh so tasty! We absolutely loved it. I've been going to their bakery for years and always loved it but this cake absolutely was amazing.

  • I used Sal and Doms for my wedding cake. My husband and I made an appointment to meet with the owner Carlo on a Sunday morning. Carlo was extremely patient and helpful. He spent over an hour working with us to create the vision I wanted for my wedding cake. We went over every detail, and every detail was written on the invoice as well as a sketch he made of how the cake should look. When we left there I felt very confident that my cake would look amazing! However the day of my wedding when I saw my cake I was a little disappointed because one the bow we wanted was centered on the cake instead of being on the side of the cake and two the second tier of the cake was completely missing the swirl design that was supposed to be on it. Now I understand mistakes happen, but after our appointment with Carlo I really did feel confident the cake would be perfect, he was so thorough and attentive not to mention EVERY SINGLE detail of the cake was written on the invoice. So I’m not quite... Read more

  • I'm not a big cake person, but I was certainly impressed. I wanted something simple, but elegant and Sal and Dom's created just that! My wedding cake was absolutely gorgeous and the whipped cream filling was amazing! My wedding was just a little under a month ago and I am still getting compliments on my cake!
