We took our 4 kids for a short walk from the hotel and are here. It was a cozy atmosphere. You can sit down and order or carry out. We were there right at 9 and had the restaurant to ourselves. The sampler {cannoli, cookies, cream puffs} was perfect for us and we carried some home. The coffee was delicious... More

On a recent Baltimore visit, we stopped in here after dinner and a walk in the Inner Harbor area. Parking is tight on the local streets, so recommended you park as nearby as possible and walk in. This place was busy and we discovered quickly why. Many of their signature desserts can be twice the size of typical restaurants at... More

I once gave a bad review for Vaccaros because of an issue with being turned away from sitting. It was the only time I ever had an issue in all the times we had visited this place.....Well, today we went for cookies and a first time lunch and I was IMPRESSED. They have MORE THAN made up for a stupid... More

We had just had an outstanding meal at Aldo and walked past this pastry shop and stopped in. WOW. Filled with hundreds of home made pastrys and other after dinner drinks. We had the Cannolies and they were to die for.

We order cannoli's to go. I thought is was weird that they gave you the shell and the filling separate so you could build your own, but after trying I see why! The shell stays crispy, and you can put as much or as little filling as you want. Smart idea, epic cannoli!

This place was busy! Expect a wait. The coffee was delicious and the cookies that I had were good- I'm sure the rest of their eats are delicious.

Little Italy is full of great Italian food at their many restaurants, but for dessert :) you need to go stand in line for Vaccaro's cannoli's, as they are AMAZING! There always seems to be a line, especially in the evening, as everyone knows you'll be treated to a real "taste of Italy" if you want a sweet to cap... More

You go to your favorite restaurant in Little Italy and, as usual, you eat and drink too much. The thought of having dessert is enough for your stomach to say, "No more, please!" But wonderful Vaccaro's is a few minutes walk from almost every restaurant in Little Italy. This little stroll is a memory itself...but for your tummy, it will... More

Evidently I am not a fan of the types of Italian pastry I bought. It all looked yummy and sounded delicious. I just wasn't my cup of tea. I like stronger flavors over just sugar sweet. With that said...if your sweet tooth is calling you can get your fix here with a dandy assortment of sweetness.

Thank BaltimoreRedbird
