These pastries were a large part of my childhood but after my Nona passed away we hadn't had these sent to us for several years - after tracking down her favorite bakery and making an opportunity to stop in (we live several states away) the...flavors are all the same - which is top tier true Sicilian pastries. We put in several large pastry orders and staff were quick and very sweet. Thank you guys for keeping up with your traditional recipes and letting me have a taste of my childhood and remember the lady who wouldn't buy cannoli's anywhere else! We will be taking advantage of the shipping option in the future!More

I last visited Vaccaro's nearly 30 years ago. At the time, I thought their cannoli was pretty darn good. Through the years, I'd built it up in my head as being the best. So on a recent trip to Baltimore, I made sure to revisit...Vaccaro's and give their cannoli another go. It wasn't at all what I remembered. It was BETTER. This cannoli was off the charts amazing! The ricotta filling was like velvet. So flavorful and not too sweet. The shell was crispy perfection. And the whole experience was, without a doubt, the best cannoli I've ever eaten. If you're in Baltimore you have to stop here. Have you even had a cannoli if you haven't had one from Vaccaro's?More

A trip to Baltimore isn’t complete without a stop at Vaccaro’s. We love the cannoli’s , they are always made to order which makes the shell so crispy. The filling is so rich and yummy. We also love the assortment of cookies.

Won't go to Baltimore without a visit to this bakery. Bought a friend a cannoli and she exclaimed it was the best she'd ever had. I have to bring home an assortment of cookies for my family and some doggie biscotti for my pup. Try...the Italian ice tea on a hot day. So refreshing and tasty!More

Very slow table service. Waited 10 min for someone to take our Gelato order. Not only did she screw up the order, the Almond Joy Gelato had NO coconut in it! Our ordercwas presented melted. Tasted better in NYC. Disappointing..

My family and I decided to go to Vaccaros after mass. However, they seem to have new staff, and they are not doing a good job on the tables. I had to wait a lot of hours for my food, and a staff member told...a family that they cannot eat at the restaurant because the group was too big (5 people) even though they have a table for big families. So, I will not recommend eating in the restaurant because of the staff.More

On my way back from Virginia, I had to stop for a treat. Over the past 18 months, there was no traveling anywhere. Now that our traveling is resuming, I had to stop and pick up some cannolis and eclairs for the ride home. We...had some tonight and were so delicious. Wow 😯 what a treat!More

Stopped for an afternoon treat on the way to the hotel from the aquarium. We decided to dine in and we’re treated to a host of classic Italian pastries from fresh filled cannolis to the delightful Pasticiotti “Vaccaro’s Style Pie!” Gelato was a refreshing choice...and included classics like chocolate and strawberry and more original styles like peanut butter fudge. Full coffee/espresso menu and cordials and other grown up drinks too. So many sweet choices.More

Stopped by and had an Éclair and Napoleon and both were huge portions. The coffees with whipped cream and booze were massive, too. Many cookies and pastries left with us also! Attentive and nice waitress.

We have been to Vaccaros a few times but this last time it seems to have gone downhill. Bought one and a half cakes that had been frozen. Don't know if they were frozen on purpose or by accident but either way it makes for...a cake less than appetizing. At the expense of $15 for a half cake and $22 for a full cake, I am expecting something great! I suggest you save your money and don't bother with VaccarrosMore

Walked here after eating dinner at a restaurant in Little Italy. Glad we decided to stop there. The website stated they closed at 7pm on a Saturday night but on the door it showed they closed at 8pm. The party ahead of us were getting...lemon water ice in a large cup with ice tea poured over the water ice. It looked refreshing. We got individual cannoli chips and dip ($3.95 special on Saturday) and some cookies (ricotta, chocolate covered coconut, and chocolate filled). Everything was delicious.More

Cannolis are some of the best I’ve had. Filled to order. Shells were crisp and the custard was sweet and creamy but not overly so. Great selection of gelato flavors and a generous serving. However they do not currently have any seating (due to Covid?)...and the closest benches or park are two blocks away and the sidewalk outside is pretty narrow, so if your getting gelato especially with kids take that into account as it might be a hassle to walk with dishes of gelato.More

We stopped by 2/12. We got in line behind 18 others waiting in line.NO SOCIAL DISTANCING AT ALL. Two young guys were trying to handle orders ,and they were overwhelmed. At one point, I counted 21 people in line. If you have been there, you...know it’s a small store. Finally, we bought 1 pound of cookies. Not remotely exceptionalMore
