Pinelli's Cucina is a terrific hidden spot for authentic Italian food. It is located in a strip mall, but don't be fooled or scared away, the quality of the food is excellent and the waitstaff are efficient and friendly. Their salads are always fresh and the dressing is very tasty. The antipasto is excellent and can be easily shared. The chicken parmesan is fantastic and the shrimp scampi is (or should be) a specialty of the house. It can get crowded on weekends, so we always go a little before the rush, but on occasion we have had to wait...but it is always well worth it. Also, I should mention that the sauce for the pasta is wonderful...must be an old family secret. You don't have to drive to Federal Hill for authentic Italian cuisine...Pinelli's Cucina is close by!
