Perfect Finale to our Evening in Little Italy

We strolled to Vaccaro's at the recommendation of a friend after a great dinner at La Scala. There was a line out the door but we didn't mind at all since it was a beautiful night. Once inside, we struggled to decide on a takeout dessert. I settled on the canoli and we also ordered gelato (HUGE... read more

Heard about this place a number of times. We walked from the hotel and grabbed some cannoli's to go. Can't say they were as good as Mike's in Boston, but still fairly good. I wish I would have tried some other of their bakery goods which looked terrific. Staff was okay and helpful but a bit stressed it seemed due... More

We decided to sit for espresso and dessert rather than takeout. $24 for 2, we were shocked. Just having table service doubles the pastry prices! $7 for a sfogliatelli! It was ok but be prepared or take it to go

My wife and I came here for the all you can eat dessert and it was delicious. They just kept bringing them out, I think I gained ten pounds over the course of the meal. If you haven't been here just go already, make sure you work out after or before though.

Try not to eat too much at dinner because all Little Italy restaurants are a short walk to Vaccaro's. You will love their homemade ice creams. My favorite dessert is the cannoli - crunchy crust with a creamy filling. Go for it!!

delicious, authentic Italian deserts and the like. We stopped in at the Hunt Valley location after dinner for a decaf cappuccino and bought a special Easter cookie too - one with an egg baked inside. This is the real deal. The original location is downtown in LIttle Italy...

Best bakery in Baltimore. Almond macaroons melt in your mouth. Canton location is a great stop after a visit to any one of the fine restaurants in the area.

For many years when I am in Down Town I stop by Vaccaro's for a sweet treat. I know to play it safe and is also this time, with two cannoli with and without chocolate, I made sure to stop at the sign of the glutton of Sicilian sweets ! By the way I underline that in Little Italy of... More

The Tiramisu is just amazing. There were SO many other great looking options, and they looked really great, but I heard so much about the Tiramisu, so I had to get it. Everything I heard was true.
