Been here before and again a great experience. My wife had the hazelnut cake and I had the American cheesecake with strawberries; both were very tasty. Definitely a place to have dessert when in Baltimore.

Came with friends for dessert after an Italian dinner. Huge servings priced accordingly. Great variety including takeout. Limited on street parking. Upstairs and downstairs as well.

The pastries were good BUT...it was super expensive! The prices were almost three times the normal. Coffee to be forgotten and forgiven

Visited Vaccaro’s with my husband and 3 kids for a midday sugar rush. The cappuccinos were really so great and the mini cannoli sampler was WONDERFUL! This place has a great atmosphere and our waitress was fantastic.

This is the ideal italian bakery that also serves night cap beverages and coffees. This is our favorite place to go after dinner in Little Italy. You can even take home the cannoli filling- yum!
