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.

I've run through the sandwich menu and most of the bread/pastry at Virgilio's. Never disappointed, sandwiches are always on point, bread is fresh, cannoli are unreal. Believe the hype.
