    I want the pumpkin cheesecake! but I think it's seasonal cause it was there In December but not February.

    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.

    For my money they have the best cannoli in Boston. My guilty pleasure every time I am in town.

    The mini cannoli is just the right size and sweetness. Crispy too!

    I had the cookies-pinoli, pistachio, almond macaroons but the cannoli is supposed to be the thing to get

    Very busy at most hours, and a direct competitor to Mike's Pastry down the road. I personally get the ricotta pie and/or ricotta cookies during the holiday season!

    Canolli with chocolate chips. Yum! Seating inside of you want to stay instead of taking your order to go.

    In general I am not a fan of cannoli. It was ok but not worthy to do the line. Lobster tail was good.

    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...

    The chocolate-dipped pistachio cannoli will make you the happiest. These are legit.

    Competes with Mike's Pastry, sometimes less busy, less selection of cannoli flavors.

    If you're not a cannoli person, try their tiramisu, napoleons, and carrot cake.

    French Horns are delicious! Solid cannolis too-- the new expansion makes the interior more comfortable when it gets busy.

    They expanded! Cash only, smaller variety than Mikes, but I feel like its quality over quantity. Anything with PB was fantastic
