great desserts.

Excellent Italian pastries. The cannolis are super fresh and delicious.My suggestion is get the three pack to go. It is 3 cannolis with half of a pint of creme to fill yourself .Plenty creme for 5 cannolis. And many other choices there but we usually get the tried and true cannolis.

I had a family with small and teenage kids come into town last weekend and we took them to Vaccaro's for lunch. I told them to eat light entrees as dessert in the thing to get here. Everyone shared the rather generous sandwiches, muffalatos, and italian grilled cheeses we ordered. Then came time for dessert. The kids all got some... More

I go here any time I am down in Little Italy, and always after Easter Sunday dinner. Best cannoli I've ever tasted and the gelato is so good! Really everything is good. If you've been to Little Italy but haven't grabbed dessert at Vaccaro's, then you haven't been to Little Italy. It is a very small place inside and so... More

Do yourself a favor and take your spouse here for a cappucino, a cannoli and a stroll down memory lane. Best cappucino in USA. Authentic as it comes.

Eight of us had dessert at Vaccaro's after visiting the Italian Festival in Baltimore. The desserts of humongous and delicious. When you order, make sure you share with another person and possibly a third person. Different things we tried were regular size coffee gelato (Huge amount -- suggest ordering a small); Apple strudel sundae and bocci ball which was cream... More

We got a late start. Took a chance to see if we could make it in time for breakfast. Vaccaro's serves breakfast all day. We both got the bacon, egg and cheese panini. Huge amount of food. Next time we'll split one.

Love the atmosphere and the menu selection at this little shop. They have 3-4 large cases of Italian treats, but I like to sit and enjoy a couple scoops of pistachio gelato.

We found this place in Little Italy while searching for a quick and affordable lunch. The paninis are delicious; enough to share. Service was prompt and friendly. The dessert special was AMAZING! Would love to go back again and try another dessert.

We were there twice in three nights! We ate at the tables indoors for dessert. Although expensive, the portions of the desserts are large. We had the cream puffs, which were very good! We also had the gelato and there were many flavors to choose from. Worth a visit.
