We had dinner at Bella's OMG the food was excellent. The wait staff was awesome and attentive. It was so hard to choose which restaurant to eat at. The prices are very reasonable I guess because they are in such competition. Very nice!

Had dinner at LaScala in Little Italy, Baltimore. Absolutely delicious all around. Portions were huge and prices were appropriate Only criticism was that the bruchetta had goat cheese on it! Very strange. The waiter tried to tell me it was "Sicilian". I've travelled extensively in Sicily, to every shore and town in between, and never had goat cheese served on... More

Go to the bakeries and splurge. Go to the restaurants and splurge. This is one of the nicer areas of Baltimore and it well worth the stop. I've never had a bad stop.

Little Italy is a district of Baltimore that's walking distance from the Inner Harbor. You'll know you're there by the number of Italian flags and dozens of Italian eateries. They seem to have all kinds of Italian foods - bakeries, pizzarias, pasta joints, etc. All of these appear to range from take-out to fancy. While you're there, check out Isabella's... More

Took the charm bus to Little Italy for a late lunch. People say it's a little tattered but is very safe during the day, I do not know about night. Walked down the first street and saw Amicci's which I had seen reviewed so we ducked in for a little pasta. The waitress was disconnected, and really not much help.... More

Tucked in the middle of Harbor East and Harbor Place, It is like a plate of Fine Food....You can't wait to eat your way into the middle.....anyone who visits leaves with a feeling of Family.....It's like visiting Home for the Holidays.... Baltimore has always been likened... More

I love the feel of this place, but unfortunately the restaurants here aren't too impressive. Aside from Vaccarro's and Isabella's, none stand out. There's occasionally festivals here and it can be pretty fun. Parking isn't too bad. Free three hour parking usually.

We were fortunate enough to be touring Little Italy during the "Festival of St. Anthony" - a massive street fair with lots of shopping, food, and drink. It was a very happy place, despite the enormous crowd! Cost was $1 per person to enter the festival. Almost anything Italian was there though - pizza, cannolis, beer, Italian Ice, etc. I... More

A short walk from the Baltimore Inner Harbor and the over priced touristy restaurants is Little Italy. I went with friends. We noticed how clean the streets where. We ate at an excellent restaurant: I had the Lasagna - excellent, one friend had Tortellini in cheese sauce and my other friend had a very fresh brochette with whole basil leaves.... More
