    Had the rum cake(?) and the napoleon. Unfortunately both cakes were too similar, same cream filling between wafers. I wish the person behind the counter had informed us before purchase.

    Come for the cannoli, leave with florentines, marzipan, jordan almonds, and sfogliatelle.

    Cannoli are much fresher tab Mike's. Their other Italian pastries such as the French horn are worth a try as well. It's difficult to not be tempted by the cake display...

    Best cannoli in Boston, but the real show stopper is the lobster tail stuffed to the gills with cream. It's a meal.
