Our dinner was so very good

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... read 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

Recommended by the hotel we took a short walk to LaTavola and boy were we happy we did. 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

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

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
