Vaccaro's has been a family tradition for over 20 years. Every time my parents visited from Oklahoma, we would eat dinner in Little Italy then walk over to Vaccaro's for dessert. They haven't been out in awhile so it was a trip down memory lane...More

We visited this Italian bakery in Little Italy near Inner Harbor, Baltimore, MD at the recommendation of someone who lives here. It was every bit as good as hoped.

I am very serious about cannoli. Previously my favorite cannoli was from an Italian bakery in NY. Vaccaro's Cannoli was its equal. At $5.25 it is not cheap. But it is excellent.

Vaccaro's is definitely worth the walk or water taxi ride. It's like stepping right into Italy. The quality and authenticity of the pastries and beverages is mouth watering. The staff and ambiance are both welcoming.

We frequented Vaccaro's when we lived in the D.C. area and visited Baltimore. I loved it. I was thrilled that 13 years later, it was still the amazing Italian pastry shop it had been. What a treat! We walked there from the inner harbor and...More
