We came, we saw, and we ate cannolis. Piedigrotta's is on the books as the only true Italian bakery in the Baltimore area. While Vaccaroo Kangaroo catered to the loud college fraternities with their day-old Tasty Cake items, and 7-11 had their donuts from Safeway, only Piedigrotta's had real Tiramiso and cannolis. We actually saw the other pastry shops have the Tasty Cake trucks pull up early in the morning to drop off boxes of day-old pastries, but Piedigrotta's actually baked their pastries overnight in their own ovens. Carmintonio was the established creator of Italy's best selling pastry, the tiramisu. But now we only have McDonald's, Vaccarro Kangaroo, and 7-11 for our stale croissants and rubber donuts.
