local Italian with good food

I eat here frequently because one of writers' groups often has dinner at the restaurant before their meetings at the library up the street.

Food is great, prices are reasonable. Would be interested if they finished developing the bar and turned it to table service but love the quick casual. Only issue is the volume of signs/notes on the doors. No cleats, no this, no that... this would be an ideal place to bring a sports team after a game but they forbid cleats/spikes... More

Good pizza, gluten-free option. One complaint: they wouldn't let me phone an order ahead of time for eating in. Pizzas take a while to cook, and with kids it's sometimes nice to call ahead to minimize the wait. Of course, they will take an order for carryout by phone, but not for eating in. Why not, Chef Paolino?

Great pizza and a large variety of Italian dinners and subs. Eat in, delivery or pick up yourself. The sausage is very tasty.

Stopped for lunch. The veal marsala was outstanding. I could have licked the dish clean. The flavor was wonderful. Will be back soon.

We had business in Catonsville, and were parked just beyond the edge of this restaurant's lot. It was dinner time, so we decided to give it a try. From the outside, it looks like a regular sit-down restaurant, although it isn't really. It took us a minute to get the lay of the land. You have to order at the... More

We celebrated a birthday with a nice dinner here. It is a roomy but warm place with a large selection of Italian specialties. The dining room is nice, but you can certainly dress informally. After soccer practice or work, it's very relaxed here. Everything was delish from the Caesar salad and fried calamari appetizer to our veal Parmesan, pasta dishes,... More

Order at the counter and they call your number. Serve yourself drinks too. I like this better because it's so much faster. Huge portions. I had the Chef P salad, came already tossed with dressing, thank you for that too. I'll be back. This is also great for takeout. One salad can feed 5 people.
