Great Italian food; location is attached to Ramada Inn so parking is very little unless you use the hotel's parking which makes the guests upset.

A family style Italian restaurant, they accommodated a party of 15 pretty last minute and the service was great. Had 3 servers always on top of drinks, wine, salad, and all helping when that many dinners came out at once. Basic Italian food but good and fresh. Will try again when out that way.

We came down from Wilmington,de to attend our cousin's bridle shower. We went with a bunch of cousins, because we didn't know the area. The food was horrible! I had the Mediterranean sauteed seafood over pasta, my wife had the crab cakes. The pasta dish had no taste, I think they ran out of seasonings in the kitcken and nobody... More

Our waitstaff person wasn't the least bit interested in providing any service. The food was mediocre but not worth the frustration of slow and inefficient staff that harding seems to care. This included the manager, who when informed of our poor service, hardly had a response. Don't bother. Many good places around this part of Pikesville/Owings Mills.

We went for our holiday party. Big mistake. They had our table jammed against a wall and so close to another party table that we couldn't move or hear anything. There was plenty of room that we could have been pulled out into the center of the room further. The food took FOREVER to arrive. Several of us noted it... More

Decent take-out pizza/salad/bread deal at a decent price. It was convenient and filled a need but wasn't anything really special.

Most dinners are accompanied by all you can eat salad and bread sticks. A nice extra if you eat light fare.

Went for dinner because it was recommended by an local associate . The A/C seemed to have not working as the restaurant was warm on this July evening. We tried the stuffed Oysters as an appetizer, they looked pretty but lacked flavor except for cooked Mayonnaise , lumps of tasteless blue crab that was perhaps pasteurized and the oyster lacked...

We eat regularly at this restaurant at least twice a month because they have the best crab cakes. On this day we arrived to a pack restaurant and decided to wait for a booth. We informed Crystal the hostess and she told us it was about a 15 minute wait. After waiting for 30 minutes (no problem) a booth opened... More
