North End for true Italian pastries?

chefdaddyo | Nov 17, 201808:33 AM

Very disappointing. Tried Mike's cannoli and sfogliatelle. Fair. Bova's last weekend was also fair. I asked for baba au rhum. Had no idea what I was talking about. Rum cake? Okay, I'll take two. Kinda like a basic yellow sheet with chocolate pudding and weak whipped cream. Cannoli cream was like cream cheese. Grew up in NYC and had outstanding bakeries every few blocks. Is this the new 'acceptable' type of pastries? They had so much more flavor 25 years ago.
