First let me say, the gelato was very good, and a decent deal as far as artisan shops go. It was 8 bucks for 4 scoops, enough for my family to share. I also got one of the Napoleon (sp) and it was very good, and 5 bucks. Here are the gripes I had. They didn't let me sit in... More

I have been living in Baltimore for 8 years. I have eaten at Vaccaro’s many, many times. This evening I had dinner at Amicci’s with my fiancé and his family. After dinner, I suggested we get dessert at Vaccaro’s. My fiancé and I do this often because Vaccaro’s is delicious. I have had many positive experiences at Vaccaro's, but tonight's... More

Looking for dessert in Little Italy after a great late lunch. Went straight to Vaccaro's. (It reminds me of the actress Brenda Vaccaro, yes?) Boy, o boy. Upon entrance you are greeted by a display of pastries and cookies to die for. Keep on walking and you see the gelato display. We brought biscotti home: so good!! They even have... More

Vaccaro's has the best pastries in Little Italy/Baltimore. Their sliced almond cookies can make you forget about ever going on a diet!

Yep, there will probably be a line when you go to Vaccaro's. it moves quickly and it is totally worth the wait. In the past we have done the gelato. On the most recent visit we got gelato for now and cookies for later. They were amazing. Do not miss the almond cookies with the pine nuts on them!

You cannot go to Baltimore without stopping here for some pastries. It is amazing. Open late as well, so perfect for some dessert after dinner in Little Italy.

We stopped for dessert after having dinner at the Inner Harbor. My wife had an ice cream sundae. I had a cake and ice cream concoction called The Franciscan. The servings were enormous, but the quality was just so-so.

I've walked here a few times after being stuffed full of gnocchi. The cannolis here are good but the gelato is delicious. You really can't go wrong with any flavor. My favorites are probably Tiramasu and Nocciola (Hazelnut). If you're in Little Italy, you must come here for dessert.

I've been here twice now in the past week; first getting the cannoli then the gelato. Both are delicious, good sized, and not too expensive. Especially worth visiting on their "customer appreciation" days. Every day is a different value with Monday offering $3 cannoli's and Wednesday $3 or $3.50 gelato (can't quite remember). However, when you come don't expect to... More
