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.

My husband and I stopped in for coffee and dessert! We were blown away with how yummy everything was! We got the pumpkin cheesecake, vanilla gelato and chocolate cannolis! If you go to Baltimore, you have to make a stop here! They also have daily to-go specials.

My coworkers gave me a gift certificate to this pastry shop and I am glad they did! Just amazing desserts. We each had a slice of their cannoli cake with their gelato and there is no way a reasonable human could finish it. They were that big. Simply delicious. We brought home a selection of their Italian cookies too. Yum.

Being New York born and New York raised, I can't get authentic Italian baked goods from where I live now. I visited Vaccaro's of Baltimore at their Canton site in May 2016, and they have the largest assortment of delicious pastries, cookies and cakes ...it was hard to choose what to buy! The Italian Wedding Cookies, chocolate covered cannolis ...where... More

This is a Baltimore institution for good reason. The desserts are amazing, and definitely big enough to share.

I arrived here already full from dinner but I could not help myself. I wanted to get a huge piece of cake or a bowl of ice cream but I restrained myself. I got a coffee and two amaretti cookies and I highly recommend! The amaretti cookies don't look like much but they are actually chew and delicious, and perfect... More

Vaccaros in Baltimore's Little Italy was a lucky discovery. The line was long so we opted to sit down and have a cappuccino, which was served in a bowl of a cup and was delish. We SHARED a ricotta cheesecake, also excellent. The desserts that were delivered to neighboring tables were huge and I think, big enough for 4 people.... More

There is something for everyone in here, and the most luscious desserts ever! I think the cannoli and eclairs are some of the best I have ever had. But the piece de resistance (for me anyway!) has got to be the CANNOLI CAKE!! Layers of cake and chocolate covered in cannoli filling....TO DIE FOR! This has graced my table at... More
