Located in Little Italy, a short walk from the Inner Harbor waterfront area, this is a Baltimore gem. An Italian pastry shop with a takeout counter, there are often lines out the door in the summer to sit or take out a delicious order of home made gelato.There is a small eat in are and three or four tables out...

We found it difficult to decide what to get when we stopped by, already full from a pasta lunch down the street. In the end, we narrowed it down to over $50 in cookies 😬. Our favorites were the ricotta and cannoli cookies, but we also enjoyed a few varieties of biscotti, lemon, and francy cookies. My husband also loved... More

Tried gelato and tiramisu. Seemed like a bunch of kids were working there. Several worked hard and were very helpful, others seemed to be playing on their phones.

Stopped in before heading to a show. The eclairs are huge and delicious. Can definitely share. The cannoli is fantastic. The service was great and very helpful. Will certainly be making this a regular stop.

The coffee is ok, and the cannoli, which should be wonderful, is just average. the filling is rather dry and bland, sadly. but some of the other pastries are tasty.

Our nephew and our niece both advised us to check out this shop for their cannolis (sp). We should have done that. We got sucked in by all the wonderful ice cream treats. They were wonderful but we each ordered our own and that was a big mistake. The portions are enough for 4 people to share. We felt bad... More

Great pastry shop. Very friendly staff. A huge selection of sweets. Free coffee and mini cannoli for uniformed soldiers or if you have a military ID. The cannoli are very good and they fill them after you order them. We had many different items and they were all very good.

My wife and I were in Baltimore for the Army/Navy game and had Friday morning to kill. We were looking for a local bakery shop for something to eat. We did not want a chain like Dunkin Donuts. Stumbled across this place. Wow is all I can say. We were a little overwhelmed with the selection as everything looked good.... More

Went to Little Italy for some Italian sandwiches and found this pastry shop. The Original mufalato was good and the portion is huge and the waitress recommended that we share it. It came with a side and we decided on the artichokes which we enjoyed. We were looking forward to the cream puffs and sad to say the pastry was... More
