I went to the Red Sox game last night and after the game I was looking for a place to eat After striking out around the ballpark I headed back to the north end where I was staying Again I was unable to find a kitchen that was open About to give up I asked a security guard if she knew of any late night places nearby She told me Bovas bakery was open late and in addition to pastry they had pizza and other dishes Although they had no pizza at the time they did have calzones (I had the chicken parm) Just what the doctor ordered I also got a cannoli which I had for breakfast this morning Yum and double yum The gentlemen who were working were very friendly and helpful to this slightly inebriated late night customer Finding this gem late at night was one of the best parts of my mini vacation I will definitely be a repeat customer
Real Italian bakery open 24 hours
Must be new management we have always come here avoiding the tourist trap (M) not always friendly but our last visit was a whole new great experience. Love the sweets, bread and cold cuts top shelf a must visit 😍
Fantastic local spot that has been serving up amazing breads, pastries, sandwiches, and more for years. Open 24-7 and always friendly.
They make some really delicious and awesome desserts here. Everything is so fresh and yummy and the service is so friendly and inviting. Went back twice in my three day stay in Boston. Definitely try the chocolate bomb, blueberry cheesecake, and cannolis, especially the Florentine one.
Best cannoli every!
Delayed flight meant we arrived in Boston around midnight not having eaten. Luckily Bova's was 10 mins walk. Had milk in stock too
Fantastic Rice balls! Loved it!
Love the chicken pram calzone, cannolis are the best!
Best bakery in all of Boston!
Cannoli is just as good as Mike's or Modern, but shorter lines! Wish I could have tried one of everything!
My son had his first cannoli ever here today. He was not disappointed. I absolutely loved the cream puff. Perfectly chilled and delicious.
Tiramisu. Enough said! It was a beautiful experience just to walk through the shop!
Our favorite North End bakery, by far. Better Cannoli than Mike's Pastry, in our opinion. They also have great subs. Open 24hrs. The staff was always very friendly. Need a quick Calzone, stop in here.
This Italian Bakery is amazing. I have never seen such gigantic pastries. It is very popular. The lines are long but move very quickly. Our family member Bill bought us lemon squares which tasted like real lemons. The crust or the lemon squares was so light and fluffy. I definitely recommend trying this Bakery with its wide range of pastries.
stumbled across this gem while searching for breakfast; i was AMAZED and brought home way too much stuff. everything was delicious and the staff were so patient with me while i hemmed and hawed about which delicious thing to eat!
Best florentine cannoli hands down !
Only place open on xmas day
Bova's has been busy every time I go there but for good reason. I have travelled Europe extensively and these pastries are some of the best I have eaten anywhere. Put it on your must try in Boston list you will not be disappointed.
