Vacarro's is simply the best dessert anywhere. I've been going there since I was a little kid and even though I live in another city now, every time I'm back in B-more I make a point to go there for some gellato. The service is great, the food is great, go there RIGHT NOW!

This place is quaint, and has a great selection of delectable desserts! Don't be fooled by the high prices - if you are not alone, feel free to split the desserts, as they are HUGE! I ordered a single scoop gelato, and couldn't even eat 1/3 of it. The gelato was very good, and I was sorry I couldn't possibly eat more. The latte was good, but the regular coffee was weak. If you are in the area, this is a neat little shop to check out.

This place has excellent Italian pastries (mmmm Meraviglioso!) but boy do you pay through the nose for it. I alway get the capuccino, cannoli, a sfoglietelle and a pignoli. $16 a pound is too much for any pastry. I mean that's more than steak. But I am too lazy to make these myself so I always come here (especially for holidays). And every friend I ever brought here was impressed! A good way to cap off an evening and wind up a date.

We went to Vacarro's on a Monday night for the all-you-can-eat dessert, and I was absolutely delighted. Gianni, the waiter, was cordial, helpful, and unflappable in the midst of tons of customers. The tiramisu was easily some of the best I've had and the rum cake was amazing. The second round included a mini canoli and three scoops of chocolate hazelnut ice cream sandwiched between cream puff pastry. Again, the canoli was the best I'd ever had. The third round included spumoni and a sampler of canolis, a butterball, a pignoli cookie, and cream puffs. Finally! Some authentic spumoni! The pignoli cookies were surprisingly soft with a pleasant almond flavor. My husband and I had five cafe au laits between us, and they were wonderful. Even the little sugar cookie they put on the plate next to the mug is fabulous. This little pastry shop is a gem.
