“Sweet Treat”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Gelato was good, very refreshing on a warm day. And... The cannoli was great!
A must when in Little Italy, Baltimore.

“Mmmm , best place for dessert after a good meal in Little Italy!”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Vaccaro's is awesome! All of the Gelato is fantastic and the Cannoli's are the best...highly recommend this place for dessert after a nice meal at Sabatino's or Amicci's right down the street.

“Ok”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

Went here because one of my co-workers said that this place has the best cannolis in the country. My husband is a huge fan so we decided to take a drive to Baltimore to visit this place. In addition to cannoli we got some vanilla napoleon. Vanilla napoleon are not good. The cream tastes like pudding and not the cream. I had many, many napoleon that were much better. My husband said that the cannoli are good, but not the best that he ever had. Overall the place is decent, but not worth the special trip to Baltimore.

“Tasty gelato for an after dinner treat”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

My significant other and I came to Vaccaro's every night of our stay in LI after dinner for gelato. We tried several flavors, vanilla bean, raspberry, and mint and chip and all were delicious. The portions are generous so start with a small and order up the next time if it's not enough. There's usually a line, but it moves fairly quickly so you can get to the counter and get out usually within fifteen minutes. They have many other options for pastries, but since we only sampled the gelato, I can't comment on the taste.

“Sensational Gelato”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

Stopped here with a group on a Wednesday night-- didn't have to wait very long and they were having a special-- a medium gelato (two HUGE scoops that you can mix and match) for only $2. What an incredible bargain! The gelato is just the right texture and not too sweet with very fresh ingredients. Even at full price (under $5) this is a dessert you just can't miss. Pastries looked amazing but I didn't get a chance to try them. Next visit to Baltimore I will skip dinner and just come here for pastries and gelato!
