Bakery across the street from Sorriso's (Astoria)?

Does anyone know the name of this bakery? I can't seem to remember it, and have been asked about it. Any recommendations on what's good there? The place is always hopping on early weekend mornings. Thanks!
That's the Gian Piero, my favorite overall Italian bakery in the neighborhood. You might find a place with some item done better, but it's one of the few that does virtually everything well. Very good bread (especially the more rustic styles) and taralli, properly delicate butter cookies, great cannoli, sfogliatelle and other pastries.
Terrible Italian bakery. All the breads have the same spongy texture on the inside, no matter what type of bread they seem to be from the outside. I haven't had the cookies or cakes, but if a bakery can't make good bread, it doesn't bode well for the rest.
Sorriso's, on the other hand, is amazing.
get the croatian olive oil at sorrisos if they have it ..its great..they supply it to piccola venezia
