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

We were visiting from NY and decided to walk around Little Italy. You know the Cannoli is good just by looking at this place. It did not disappoint. We had the chocolate dipped. Also try the cream puffs.

We stopped for cookies and gelato. This seems a very popular place. The ice cream was great and service was very good.

Walked here after going getting fish and chips at a local restaurant in the Inner Harbor. The desserts are amazing! However, you can’t eat inside at this time which was disappointing seeing it was just about to downpour. The canolli cake was just as good...their famous canolli’s. However kids found their canolli gelato tasted like cinnamon red hots.More

I drive from West Virginia to Baltimore for my Vaccaro's cannoli fix. I always get an extra container of filling to pop in my freezer. Always treated well even though employees are hustling to get orders filled quickly and correctly. You will NOT be disappointed!

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.

I was staying around the corner at a hotel, went to dinner down the block at Mo's and after dinner took 20 steps down the block and BAM, I was at Vaccaro's. This is some spot. You can't go wrong, I bought some cannoli's and...napoleons to go. They had tables to sit at and served coffee and had a gelato bar. OMG, I am grateful that I was only in town for one day. I would have been a repeat customer every night, I will be back!!!More

No, we did not. They had a party of 9 and we could not add a chair to the table because of a fire hazard. They just needed to wait for another table to open. This had nothing to do with a wheelchair as this would have been... More
