My husband and I have been going here for more than 14 years. There are a couple of EXCELLENT dessert places but when the lines are too long, we usually end up going to Caffe Vittoria which almost always has a couple of open tables...More

Had an affogata that was so good. Also had cannoli and a regular espresso. The atmosphere was busy and fun. Only downside is they are cash only.

The coffee was pretty good (Lavazza) but the place was so small. We ended up sitting in the back and it was dark and small. Would recommend coming here for the coffee.

Seriously. Do. The cappuccino here is amazing and along with cannoli makes an absolutely lovely pairing. Everyone is so very friendly and talkative with visitors. I can’t wait to be back again!

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church
