Little Italy: Piedigrotta Bakery

When it comes to Italian delis in Baltimore, my heart belongs to DiPasquale’s. But, in the interest of time and discovering something a little more accessible from my office, I decided to try Piedigrotta Bakery. I had a friend meeting me for lunch and nothing was more appealing to us than an Italian sandwich followed by a pastry.

When you enter Piedigrotta Bakery, it’s clearly a bakery that has a few sandwich options. There are pastry cases filled with great looking Italian desserts. But before I could indulge in something sweet, I wanted a sandwich. I ordered the Prosciutto Sandwich which was massive. In addition to prosciutto, the sandwich had fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, lettuce, and then was drizzled with olive oil and balsamic. I could barely fit this sandwich in my mouth, but when I did, it was delicious. The meat was salty, the cheese was fresh and it was a great Italian Sandwich.

When my friend and I finished our sandwiches, we each ordered a dessert. Apparently Piedigrotta Bakery is known for its Tiramisu and rumor has it that the owner invented this dessert. Personally I am not into Tiramisu, but my friend loved this and said she would order it again.

For dessert, the foursquare tips highly recommended the Lobster Tail, so that’s what I ordered. This is a flaky puff pastry filled with custard. The custard was very sweet and I liked it a lot, but if you don’t have a sweet tooth, you may find this to be too sweet.
