The chef is from Venice, so go with the flow and you will be happy

I live in Bmore and this is my go-to restaurant.You will have a great dinner if you avoid Southern-Italian cliche dishes. Venetian style is lighter. Fish and seafood specials are great, also the pasta with blue crab meat. The fritto misto is the best I have ever had. For meat eaters, the nightly... read more

Thought it would be a good choice to pop in on a Friday night after Craft Show @ Convention Center for Italian comfort food...was hoping for that Goliath sized portion of Eggplant Parm. They only have a small plate portion $12 on the appetizer menu, and offered to give 2 portions for my dinner. It was really tasty & I... More

Went here last night. It cost around $110 for the two of us. The best part of the meal was the espresso ice cream. I think the chef needs to learn that there is a huge world of spices available. Each bite was as bland and plain as the one before. This is the 2nd time I have eaten in... More

We waited about 30 minutes past our reservation time on a Friday night to be seated, but the staff was very friendly and seating in the bar area made our wait comfortable. There appeared to be open tables, but perhaps not enough staff to serve us if we were seating at one of those table. Once seated, our waitress gave... More

When looking for dining options in a town we're not familiar with, I usually read the negative reviews. They usually provide the balance to the over-hyped groupie superlatives from local fans. Unimpressed customers expressed a good measure of disappointment in LT, usually about service and/or food quality. Quite understandable. My wife and I were on a date night in Baltimore... More

My husband and I visited for a date night and we found the dishes very comparable to fare we've had in Tuscany. The restaurant is small and very friendly. The manager was out on the floor during our visit. The menu is quite varied. Many choices of pastas, meats, chicken and seafood. Many people in the US are used to... More

Went for lunch. 6 adults and 2 kids. Food was good but overpriced. Salad was small. Penne arrabbiata was small and not spicy at all. Kids meal of capellini was extremely small. Fish special was good size. Service was mediocre. Trading on their name, it seems.
