After my delicious lunch at Eovaldi's, the guy behind the counter suggested that I go to Vitale's Bakery for dessert. As a girl with a sweet tooth, I just had to try it out. He told me that the cannolis were first class, but I really ought to try the ricotta puff (kind of like cannoli filling inside a doughnut)
Vitale's is just what I imagined as an Italian neighborhood bakery.
There were rows upon rows of cookies, breads, eclairs, tiramisu, and all kinds of tasty goodies.
I walked out with an entire sack of deliciousness including 6 cookies, 2 brownies, 2 cannolis and 2 ricotta puffs (which rocked my world).
Two special notes: There is an entire case of sugar-free goods for those who want (or have) to limit their sugar intake. And, Vitale's does not accept credit cards, so have your cash or check ready.
Whatever you do, go there. Seriously.
