“ONE OF MY FAVORITE PLACES!”
Reviewed May 7, 2012

OH HOW I LOVE THIS PLACE :)
Bruno and Antonio are 2 of the loveliest people ive come across in Little Italy. Their quaint bistro is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon lunch after a bike through the city. delicious pastries and home cooked italian meals. you can smell the love when you walk through the door. greeted with warm faces and hugs, ill keep coming back over and over again. all hail piedegrotta, and the inventor of tiramissu! (no seriously, antonio invented it 50 yrs ago in Italy! go to the website for proof!)

“Unforgettable...in the best way”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

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 you can't come for dinner, come for a slice of amazing tiramisu (it was so good, I'll go along with the claim that he invented it! :))

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.

“The most authentic Italian bakery in Baltimore”
Reviewed October 5, 2011

Piedegrotta lies just on the shoulder of Baltimore's Little Italy, but take the time to visit the proprietors, Carmenantonio and Bruna, they will treat you like family. For lunch and dinner the pasta bar is delicious and you get an incredible amount of food and variety. The pastries and desserts are a treasure. Fresh filled canolis with the prefect balance of sweetness and creamy ricotta. Delicious tiramasu from the man who invented it (seriously, Google it if you are skeptical). Generous servings of gelato. And my wife and I's favorite, a flaky pastry filled with marzipan and chocolate, topped with slivered almonds. Its heaven.
