  • Andrew Zimmern visited Boston's North End, an Italian neighborhood. He stopped by Maria's and tasted the cannoli and sfogiatelle. As seen on Bizarre Foods America.
  • Her ricotta pie is better than my grandmother's. There. I said it!
  • Sfogliatelle!
  • Very cold air conditioning and a friendly cat.
  • Maria's Pastry Shop is a no frills, simple Italian Bakery thats well worth the trip.
  • Solid cannolis. Eat like a local!
  • Cannolis are the highlight here and taste better than Mike's. Lines are also nowhere near as long.
  • Almond paste cookies.. Tiramisu! Yet to try more!!
  • cannoli lobster roll and cookies
  • The best cannoli I've ever had!
  • Cannolli are delicious!
  • Was told that they had some great cannoli & was not disappointed. But found a new pasties Picked up a Sfogliatelle and their "Lobster Tail" which were both delicious & I highly recommend them.
  • Everything. Real Italian bakery, so delish. Cannoli are fresh filled when you order.
  • The cannoli was fresh and tasty!
  • While the idiots line up like cattle at Mike's, go here instead. Way better and more authentic.
  • Good cannoli.. far better than mikes
  • Do a cannoli run here.
  • If you want a traditional cannoli, Maria's trumps Mike's and possibly Modern. The ricotta filling is thicker and not as fluffy as Modern's (which isn't a bad thing). Try the candied fruit topping!
  • Check out Maria's Pastry Shop as seen on Bizarre Foods America
  • My favorite cannoli is sold here. It is a bit off the main little Italy street (but still close enough) and you would be positively surprised and thankful if you make it here
