Wonderful Meal

I went for Valentine's Day at the last minute. They had a special menu and I really enjoyed the lamb shank. The sauce was terrific and the meat was extraordinarily tender. I had the four courses that included specific choices. Everything was wonderful. Dessert was a sample plate which was nice... read more

It started with bread and olive oil which was pedestrian. The waiter knew little about the menu. The dinner included a portion of pasta as an appetizer which was bland with a creamy sauce with little flavor. The veal was tasteless and covered in a lumpy brown gravy which I think was supposed to be a Marsala sauce. The setting... More

Party of six had no problem getting a 7pm Sunday night table. Food was good, but not incredibly memorable. Black spaghetti made with squid ink was unique, and portions of everything (except lasagna) were reasonably large. But, prices were high with substantive up charges for every alteration - want some pasta with your chicken parm? Add $10. Want enough antipasta... More

Stopped at this venue for a good Little Italy lunch with friends and we were disappointed. We did the appetizer/entree combo and their house wines. The salad was overly oily and the panini which was bland. My wife had the lasagna which was bland but her soup ( fava beans, peppers, rosemary) was excellent. Our friend had the tile fish... More

Located on a corner in Little Italy we had great hands on service, wonderful food and to top it off the best dessert! We were torn on what to have so we asked our server for his advice and his passion for... More

My wife and I had an early dinner (4:30) because we just could not get away for the evening due to the children. The restaurant was so much bigger inside than we had expected and being that we were there prior to the dinner rush it was pleasantly quiet. The place was very nice and clean and the staff were...

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 meat special has always been good. The... More
