Amazing

Amazing cappuccino on a cold rainy day before we headed home. I only wish I had room for one of the amazing looking desserts.

My mouth is watering, just thinking about their cookies! Every single thing we ate from Vaccaro's was amazing! This was a regular stop for us, and for folks visiting us to see the national capital sights. They have a wide variety of deserts large enough to fill a plate, so grab someone to share with, or make it your meal.... More

The specials are definitely the way to go. A local directed us to the specials saying they were always excellent and the best deal. We got two specials for three people to share. The portions were huge and there was no way the three of us were going to be able to eat it all. We would have easily been... More

Initially, I was not excited about being here. The two women behind the counter were ignoring the line for several minutes before telling us to sit down if we wanted to eat at the location. But once we sat down we had a wonderful server/waitress by the name of Kim, I believe, who was immensely pleasant, patient and helpful. After... More

We tried to get into the pastry shop at night, forget about it. The line was out the door for the sit down restaurant and the for the pastry & ice cream section. We went back the next morning when they opened, had a very nice breakfast, got our Italian cookies (expensive but fantastic) and my gelato (so good!).

Everything here is delicious! My oldest loves the gelato and my youngest son loves the cannolis. My husband and I have enjoyed everything we have tried. Don't miss it! Try to go during off hours or be prepared for a wait. And I know some people complained about the service, but I have been there 3 times in the last... More

What a great place for coffee and a snack. Everything is homemade, the variety of pastry and gelato is extensive. The shop had an old time appeal and our time was relaxing. The waitress was friendly and gave us a few moments to decide which treat we would select..... she even refilled our coffee.

Stopped for lunch and split a huge panini with my friend. Good sandwich, the pasta salad we chose as a side was mediocre. But then also split a coconut napoleon for dessert - delicious!

We walked in for dessert after Saturday night supper around the corner in what passes for Little Italy in Baltimore (nothing like, say, like the Little Italies of Boston or New York). Crowded, lots of friendly noise from tables and counter. You can do take-out here, choosing goodies from a big case full of tempting cookies and pastries and they... More
