Stopped for lunch and split a huge panini with my friend. Good sandwich, the pasta salad we chose as a side was mediocre. But then also split a coconut napoleon for dessert - delicious!

We walked in for dessert after Saturday night supper around the corner in what passes for Little Italy in Baltimore (nothing like, say, like the Little Italies of Boston or New York). Crowded, lots of friendly noise from tables and counter. You can do take-out here, choosing goodies from a big case full of tempting cookies and pastries and they... More

While lunching in Little Italy we looked out the window and saw this bakery. A quick look on TripAdvisor told us they had to-go and table service, so we waddled over. We bought a giant slice of dark chocolate cake, a variety of cookies, a pack of pizzelles and two mini cannolis, one chocolate, one regular. They were so patient... More

I had no idea that you could actually get a full meal here, NOT JUST DESSERT! Our family of three was promptly seated in the dining area located on the first floor. Delightful smells and large screen TVs kept us occupied during the short wait for our food. Each of us ordered a mufalato, but different flavors and side. Mine... More

Not cheap, but the cookies are the best. Thee are some of the best outside of Arthur Ave in the Bronx. I wish there was an outlet in DC, well actually my waist line is better off with their Baltimore locations.

With the Canoli Cake. This Italian bakery and dessert shop has sandwiches too, but go for the pastries and desserts. There is usually a line out the door and for good reason. The service can be a little slow but if you are in Little Italy, you owe it to yourself to go. Great Italian cookies too, but my favorite... More

Best gelato around the Baltimore area. It is decently priced and is a lot of ice cream. Highly recommend the coffee and nocciola flavors.

Our Trolley Guide recommended this as a great place for cannoli and, boy, was he right! We ordered the hot cocoa and shared a trio of mini cannoli. Yummy!

Pros: large portions, good flavor Cons: no option for small portions, expensive (one espresso was $6), small seating area, very cold in winter because only one door leading to outside.

This place is always busy and my kids and I had just finished dinner at an Italian restaurant nearby. I've been here before many times and have always enjoyed it, and even in the winter, the place packs people in. Since two of my kids had gone to Italy, they wanted something authentic. My son got the cannoli which he... More
