Hands down, the best bakery I've been to! A great spot for after dinner/drinks, they're always open and serving the most delicious pastries around. Don't leave without a Peanut Butter Bar! Chocolate Covered Strawberries and Canoli's are superb as well. Easily surpasses Mike's!

My husband and I travel to Boston at least once a month from upstate NY and never leave the North End without getting our Bova's fix. It's worth getting off Hanover Street to support this small establishment. The waitstaff is always great no matter what time you are there.
My husband can't get enough of the bread. The last time we were there they gave us a free small loaf that just can out of the oven. We couldn't wait to eat it so we ate it while walking down the street. My favorite dessert is the eclair. The chocolate on top is the best. Make sure to buy enough to eat there and to bring home with you.

My wife and I met at Bova's so it holds a special place for us. You could say we met over a CANOLLI!! The ingredients are fresh, the staff is super friendly and you can't beat the atmosphere at the North End. For a true italian experience I highly suggest you give Bova's a try...who knows you might meet your future wife!!

I found it by accident at 2am last night and I must say that the key-lime bomb was magnificent. There weren't any tables so perhaps a cookie is a better treat if you want to eat immediately. Everything smelt great and looked wonderful- it was hard to pick.

If you want the true North End experience, then you must go to Bova's. I moved away from the Boston area over 7 years ago, and I wish I could bring a suitcase full of their amazing cookies, cannolis, breads, and their wonderful people back with me to Atlanta.

Bova's is my choice when it comes to Italian deserts. Great price, great selection, friendly service and the best part of all... its open 24 hours a day! Its also a little less expensive than ""Mike's Pastry"" and the lines are much much shorter. I will never go anywhere else!

I have been lucky to discover Bova's subs - the most amazing subs packed with the most meat I have ever seen. I usually get the roast beef, which is usually freshly roasted (coming out of the oven), housed by their bread and topped toppings. Yet toppings dont matter with all the meat! They run about $5 ea and I cannot eat more than half!
