“Perfect coffee and pastry spot in North End”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014 via mobile

Loved this little spot full of marble and chrome coffee machines - very Little Italy - delicious cannoli, gelato, tiramisu and coffee of course. Service was good, kids loved it, recommended by locals.

“Spectacular coffee!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

I hate this place, because now I can't settle for Starbucks after tasting Caffe Vittoria's awesome coffee! The mocha was simply amazing and has to be one of the best coffees I have ever tasted yet.

If you are not a fan of coffee, Caffe Vittoria also offers gelato. The cafe served a decent-sized portion, and the price was relatively low compared to other gelato places. Gelato itself was delicious, so the decent portion at the lower price was definitely a big plus.

However, I cannot give this place a full rating because the staff attitude was pretty cold. The staff was not a distraction from our experience but was a noticeable con.

That should not deter you from trying Caffe Vittoria's gelato and coffee though! If you are looking for a great coffee or gelato time in North End, give this place a shot!

“okay..”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

The service was terrible. When I entered.. There were many waiters standing and talking to each other not paying attention to any customers including me. When I sat down, nobody came to me. I had to come to one of them to let her know that I want to order a cup of coffee. The coffee was really good.. Little warm but okay. I wouldn't come back again even the atmosphere was good.

“THE Best Coffee!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

I heard rumors that Caffe Vittoria would have THE best cup of coffee. I was not disappointed! I arrived in Boston after a red eye flight, so caught them as they opened at 7am. I had 2 Americano's [even though the cappuccino is all the rage] and could have drank another 2 more! Very friendly service in such an incredible neighborhood. They are cash only, so plan accordingly!

“True Italian Cafe Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

Been here many times over the years...always try to stop in for pastry and coffee when in the area. Crowded, noisy, busy...just the way it ought to be! Great cappuccino. Great pastry. You'll probably have to be aggressive to get a table, just as if you were in Rome. There's not many of these old school coffee houses left, so try it sooner than later.
