The gelato is excellent; variety of biscotti; but I love the Pignot cookies! A little on the expensive side; & crowded at times. But a nice experience. If you visit, look across the street on the corner & you'll see the little bake shop where Mr. Vacarro had his business. He was a lovely & loving man whom I got... More

You can always count on getting wonderful cookies at Vaccarro's. Set in the heart of Little Italy it is great for stopping in for a pound of cookies or sitting in the café for a hot chocolate or coffee. They also have a selection of ice cream to order. Kid friendly.

A not to be missed special institution in Baltimore's Little Italy. Go for coffee, dessert after eating elsewhere, or anytime you want something delicious and sweet. Check Baltimore summer activities for the evening outdoor movies offered right near the restaurant. A real treat - a Baltimore icon!

Any restaurant that has a dessert called "Death By Chocolate" has to be good. They even sell the cannoli shells and the custard separately, so you can go home and teach your kids how to fill cannolis and start a great family tradition. The food is actually quite good, but then you won't have enough room for dessert. Tough decision.... More

Located in Little Italy, a short walk from the Inner Harbor waterfront area, this is a Baltimore gem. An Italian pastry shop with a takeout counter, there are often lines out the door in the summer to sit or take out a delicious order of home made gelato.There is a small eat in are and three or four tables out...

We found it difficult to decide what to get when we stopped by, already full from a pasta lunch down the street. In the end, we narrowed it down to over $50 in cookies 😬. Our favorites were the ricotta and cannoli cookies, but we also enjoyed a few varieties of biscotti, lemon, and francy cookies. My husband also loved... More

Tried gelato and tiramisu. Seemed like a bunch of kids were working there. Several worked hard and were very helpful, others seemed to be playing on their phones.
