Couldn’t get passed the extremely rude service over phone. I called to order a cake and spoke with one of the rudest people I’ve ever encountered. Went with another bakery

Although you can get a meal at Vaccaro's, I have only ever had their gelato, which is excellent with a nice selection of flavors. There is a nice Italian cafe atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit.

If you know Boston's North End , you know about Mike's Pastries. An amazing place. And, Zaccaro's is cut from the same cloth. Truly wonderful stuff. Totally worth FINDING it and then waiting in line.
