I discovered this place a number of years ago and it became an instant favorite. Their Tiramisu is amazing and a family favorite which we order for every birthday and holiday! The pastries are authentic Italian and you can even talk to the woman who bakes everything. Just ask her about her panettone (which is the best I have ever... More

My first time to Little Italy with a large social group and the pleasure of finding this gem. Melt in your mouth sweets and a huge variety. We had an opportunity to sample a variety of treats. The tiramisu, cannoli cakes and apple strudel were my favorites. Even the coffee was outstanding. If you are in the area, stop by... More

I arrived with a large (fun) group. We all had a sweet tooth and boy we couldn't wait to dig in. They sell deliciously large portions of food, gelato, baked goods, and sweets, sweets, sweets! They had the largest eclair I have ever seen! I ordered an espresso cake that was so light, fluffy, and a hint of sweetness. The... More

What a great find! We were looking for a breakfast spot & were just about to settle for yet another Starbucks when I found Piedigrotta listed on my GPS. We had the special Italian breakfast and it was amazing fresh fruit salad, sweet rolls, scrambled eggs, potato pie, sausage, bacon, beets and roasted red peppers. The coffee was excellent. You...

This is just a little storefront cafe/bakery, but the food is to die for! I had a meatball sub that was probably the best food I've ever eaten. Then I had some pastries. I would have eaten more, but my stomach literally would not hold any more. I was truly considering moving to Baltimore so I could eat at Piedigrotta... More

This is a quaint out of the way bakery and eatery in the Little Italy section of the Harbor. The owner is the originator of Tiramisu. The baked goods from bread to pastries are great and available for takeout. Even the gelato and tiramisu can be packed to travel. Breakfast thru dinner changes everyday depending on the owners and are... More

We walked all over Inner Harbor. We went up and down the streets of Little Italy. And now we were hungry. We tried a couple of area bakeries but there was a line at the door and they were teenage havens. We were told that the inventor of the Tiramisu still worked at Piedigrotta, and we found out it was... More

We had an unforgettable dinner at Piedigrotta. For dinner, call ahead and Antonio will have a table waiting and he will serve an elegant multicourse, delicious meal of whatever he is making that night. From the bread to the stuffed pork to the gnocchi to the tiramisu - it was a culinary experience that superceeded our meals in Italy. If... More

Have been a regular customer from North Carolina since 2003. Bruna and Antonio are the most gracious hosts and outstanding cooks~bakers. Love the tiramisu.
