Modern Pastry: Good Gelatos
This place has good gelatos! I've never tried their cannolis here, but it looks wonderfully rich. You can see the staff filling these things with yummy/creamy goodness, so next time I'm here, I'll definitely buy some.
Favorite Dish: gelatos, other tasty treats

Modern Pastry: Italian Pastry!
I stood in line here on a Saturday afternoon for over 30 minutes just to get a cream filled cannoli. Let me tell you that it was well worth the wait! The shell was light and flaky, obviously baked fresh that day. The filling was cool, light, and slightly sweet but not overly so. They also have many other baked goods including cakes, tarts, breads, and cookies. I'm sure they're all fabulous.
Seriously, if you come up to Modern and there's a line, stand and wait. You won't be sorry.
Favorite Dish: Cream-filled cannoli
Modern Pastry: Modern Pastry
A REAL Italian bakery. All the guidebooks tout Mike's pastry (which is a couple blocks down) as a must see. Honestly the lines ar longer and the pastry just isn't as good. Modern is smaller, family run and has excellent pastries!
Favorite Dish: Cannolis & Biscotti
Modern Pastry: North End Pastry Shop
Mike’s Pastry is the most famous of the North End pastry shops, but I’ve always preferred Modern Pastry, located right across the street. A slightly smaller selection than Mike’s, but also a smaller crowd, and I know many who consider Modern to have the best cannolis in the North End.
Favorite Dish: My personal favorite is the carrot cake - the frosting is amazing.
