I loved this place. I live 45 minutes away but I'm going to plan a trip back just for these sandwiches!

I ordered a North Ender (prosciutto, fresh mozzarella, sun-dried tomatoes, oil & fresh basil) for $6.50 and I split a plain cannoli with a friend. They were SO good! I wasn't joking about driving all that way just for a couple of sandwiches. We both loved it!

The cannoli was great, too. I'm a bit of a cannoli connosieur, so trust me on this.

I knocked off a point for the limited seating; there were only about 4 small tables outside and 2 inside. When we arrived (around noon on a Sunday) the place was packed, standing room only.

You don't have to go into East Boston to get some super Italian pastries. Just go to Virgilios. Everything made on the premises including some Portuguese delicacies as well. We were very satisfied. Wish they had more choices for their cannolis. They were delicious.

Picked up Italian shortbread cookie w/ raspberry filling and a cannoli...both were delish.
The cannoli was the best I have ever had...the creme filling was perfect...will definately go back again!
