We wandered in here after eating an awesome pizza lunch and wow. I am a fan for life. This place blows the others out of the water. THE COCONUT CAKE!!! It might be the best cake I've ever had. It was sooo sooo good. Not cheap, but nothing in the city is. And man it was worth it. I would have paid double after I tasted that cake. Their cannoli's are yummy too. Such friendly service too! Another bakery I walked into I pretty much got my head bitten off for asking a question about an item. So we left and came here and man I will be dreaming about that coconut cake!!

So delicious! Over the course of a recent weekend, we went to Bova's twice and had the pleasure of eating Rice Balls, Calzones & Cannoli's. Everything was delicious! Our favorite calzone was the spinach and cheese, but they were all great. The ordering process is a little confusing and the person who took our order was clearly impatient, but they are very busy so we didn't let it sour us on the place. Order and get out! :)

Visiting Bova is a must do whenever we visit the city, we can’t miss it! There’s often a long line but it moves quickly. Lobster tails are the best in the North End!

Tried multiple sweets. All were astonishing and delicious. Visited all the big 3 bakeries and Bova gets our vote as the best! If you can’t find something there you just need to go home.

This bakery is in the middle of Little Italy in the North End in Boston. When we arrived about 8:00pm, the line was out the door, around the corner and down the street. Thankfully, it moved quickly.
Once we got inside, the line snakes around down the right side of the store, makes a curve around at the back and then snakes up the other side to the front. The upside of this is that it allows you to walk by all of the cases of food so you can make your choice of what you want before it's your turn to order. The baked goods are too numerous to list from cookies and macaroons to several kinds of cheesecake, cakes, brownies and of course many different flavors of cannoli's. Portions of each are huge and easily shared. They also sell pizza by the piece, calzones and riceballs.
We only tried a cannoli and a brownie, but both were fantastic.
