Sarah Gilmartin and her mother Lucy saw a window open for them when Prish Moran of Sweetness 7 made this store front available. An opportunity to fulfill a long talked of fantasy of opening a specialty shop that served only the finest and most delectable confectionaries and traditional Italian baked goods.
B. Ferrante's is open from 7:30 am to 3:30 pm Wednesday through Saturday and Sunday 8 am to 2 pm at 218 Grant Street across from Westside Stories and behind Sweetness 7 near the corner of Grant and Lafeyette in the Westside of Buffalo.

pizzelles and scones.
I am so glad there is such a fine Italian panetteria within walking distance of home. They will become a fast family favorite! Welcome to the neighborhood!
