There are two dueling bakeries in the North End that are known for their cannolis. This is my favorite as they fill them fresh when you order them.
AAA Inspector Notes
Classic. Do not miss out on the sublime fresh and from-scratch pastries at this must-try spot. In the heart of the North End, this place gets high marks for its fabulous giant lobster tails—homemade pastry shells filled at the time you order with what might be a blend of mascarpone and ricotta cheeses. Guests also revel at the taste of hand-made Italian cookies, Boston cream cupcake and ricotta pie. This city landmark has been family owned and operated for over 70 years.
