We stopped by for a snack during the afternoon. The cannoli are filled as you order them, so they are fresh and delicious. The small size is quite small, and the large size can be shared with another person. Service is friendly. There are tables...More

And a delicious raspberry vanilla napoleon. So very delicious. And my kid's small ice creams (or gelatos? I'm not sure what they're eating) are actually huge. No skimping on portions. One complaint - a bunch of empty tables outside that we aren't allowed to sit...More

Visited on a Sunday night for dessert and was not disappointed. The cannoli and eclair were both phenomenal. Highly recommend both.

Went to the Italian Festival again this year and had to stop there to get a pistachio gelato and pignoli cookies. Terrific gelato ! Rich and creamy , just like in Italy and the cookies were perfect. Wish I could get to Baltimore more often

Vaccaro's is the best dessert place in all of Baltimore. It's worth the walk to Little Italy. Visitors can eat inside, outside, or take out. They serve ice cream, cookies, pastries, and coffees, teas, etc.

Don't think of skipping desert with Vaccaro's as an option. The shop has daily specials that cause the line to snake out the door for the gelato special. I selected a box of my favorite Italian style cookies and biscotti to take home to South...More

This shop was started originally in a small storefront across the street and then moved across the street and turned over to the owner's children. Whether biscotti, gelato, cakes, italian ice, everything is good. When we go to Little Italy we usually skip dessert at...More

The gelato was excellent. We sat at one of the tables and ordered the regular size gelato. This was 4 good-sized scoops ... enough for 2 people to share.
