My daughter said this was "all the rage" for Italian dessert so we went there after we ate pizza at Isabella's Brick Oven which is just one block over. We had the chocolate and vanilla napoleon and the anise cookies with white frosting and chocolate chips. The cookies were great, but I thought they were just sugar cookies - the... More

I've been going to Vaccaro's for the past 15 years. While I have never had actual food there (I didnt even know they had anything other than dessert until about a year ago!), I love their ice cream sundaes! I also love love love their Italian Iced Tea, which is brewed tea with lemon italian ice in it. SO GOOD.

Quick review ..... we stopped by after dinner in the neighborhood and grabbed 3 cannoli & a few cookies to go so we could eat later at home. Everything was great but very pricey IMHO at $22 for the 3 cannoli & 6 cookies .... for take out no less.

Pretty simple review. Go for the pastries not for the coffees. We got a cannoli which was just soooo good. Tried a hot coffee and iced latte and both were just average at best.

We went there on Friday 10/7/16 and the help at the pastry counter/gelato area was so incredibly rude. It was like we were a total inconvenience because they waited on us for few biscotti's and gelato. A friend of mine was visiting for the first time and has a major gluten allergy and had asked a few questions in regards... More

The panini was huge - big enough for two. All of the pastries and gelatto looked great. Staff was not very efficient, and every time we tried to go, it seemed like there was a long line out the door.

Great Coffee, Cannolis and Tiramasu! Napoleans and gelato are good too. Friendly Service. A Little Italy staple!! One of those places you need to stop in if you are visiting Baltimore.

If you are anywhere near Little Italy this is a must stop for all foodies especially those with a yen for sweets. Gelato, cannoli, cookies or ice cream spectaculars this is the place to go. There are two problems here. One is what to evening and the other is getting in the door on a summer evening.

Thank Jerry16
