I've only ever visited Caffé Vittoria during the day, when it operates as a cafe. At night it becomes more of a bar than a café, although the menus stay the same throughout the day, serving coffee, drinks, pastries and ice-cream.

Whenever I'm in Boston, which isn't very often admittedly, I always make a point of heading over to the North End and having an espresso and a pastry in Caffé Vittoria. In a world dominated by takeaway coffee and waiting at the counter to get your order, it's a delight to find an old-fashioned place with waitress service and a slice of old Italian class. It helps that the coffee is reliably good and, being an old-fashioned Italian espresso man myself, it very much hits the spot. The pastries, by the way, are divine.

if you're in the area for dinner, don't bother having dessert where you are dining, come here.

a group of 8 of us came here for dessert after dinner at cantina italiana, and it was a lovely experience.

we had cannoli - delicious, tiramisu - heavenly, cappuccino - in really large cups, and absolutely perfect, gelato - so many flavours you will be spoilt for choice, and sorbets - the lemon was perfect

service was quick, efficient and friendly

there's nothing not to like about this tiny gem - don't worry if you missed mike's pastries because of the long lines. just walk in next door and enjoy.

I try to stop at Caffe Vittoria every time I'm in the North End. I love the cappuccinos, and the tiramisu is DELICIOUS. It's right by Mike's, so it's easy to overlook...don't miss it!

The pastry + coffee was good. The servers were cool and super Italian-style. But there was a smoky smell from the back room. Not a deal breaker, but not so great either.

A great place to get a cappacino with your date or gelato with your kids or a cannoli and hot chocolate with a friend. It is a happening spot.
