What a great place to stop after a delicious meal in Little Italy! The gelato is great, with many flavors to choose from. I had the tiramisu, and it was divine. While there, pick up some biscotti for your morning coffee.

The gelato and pastries are great and this is a neighborhood gem! We were amazed at the eat in gelato portion size for a small....bigger than I can describe! This is truly worth a visit, but come ready and hungry to enjoy authentic Italian pastries!

We visited Vaccaro’s after dinner in Little Italy. We had wait in line, but it’s probably worth it. The Cannoli were freshly stuffed and the Pignoli Nut Cookies were very good. I thought the Gelato was just average. I really liked the decor!
