No matter what your favorite Italian desert treat, it is here in style. I get the Napoleon, but the cannoli fills the display cases, the cookies and other treats abound. I suggest eating half your dinner and a doggie bag, the walk over to Vaccaro's. There will be a line, but they serve fast and it is worth the wait.

Vaccaro's is consistent in being overpriced and underwhelming. The cookie selection is narrow and the cookie quality is only ok. I have also had more than one order botched by inattentive salespeople. While it is nice when a local restaurant or shop is popular, it is also off putting when the place is constantly unkempt looking from so much tourist... More

I am not really the biggest fan of dessert, but visited Vaccaro's with a family group on a Saturday mid-afternoon. We had planned to have dinner later, but after our dessert at Vaccaro's, no one was hungry the rest of the day. Large portions are the order of the day - you may want to share with someone. From Cannoli... More

Go hungy, very hungry! The hot chocolate was a dessert in itself. The eclair was the size of a medium sandwich & was delicious but entirely too big. Perfect for a family of 4 to share. The gelato was also delicious as well as the pizelles we got to go!

Stopped at the Little Italy stop on the water taxi and found our way to Vaccaro's. We sat in the small area with tables ad our waitress was patient as we compiled our platters of cookies from the expansive selection. I had a hot Mochaccino that was delicious and my brother in law had a huge iced Frappuccino. Not exactly... More

A friend told me about this place, so I decided to give it a try on a Friday evening before the outdoor movie started. I had a Latte and a chocolate covered Cannoli. Both were really good! It wasn't cheap, but was definitely worth it! I will return on my next trip for sure!

We came here for cannolis and they are awesome! The original kind is my favorite. They also have very good Italian cookies. Definitely check this place out if you love Italian desserts!

My husband and I visited here while in Little Italy. They place was packed and the line was out the door! The dessert was average. It was a nice way to end the evening at Little Italy. Be aware that parking in this area is very tricky! Overall not a bad experience.

Being a native New Yorker, I've had my share of delicious Italian pastries and Vaccaro's could stand with the best of them! We had the Cannoli and Coconut Napoleon and both were outstanding. The cannoli cream has a cinnamon flavor to it, not something I'm use to as most of the cannoli's in NY have an orange flavor, but it... More

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
