“Authentic Italiano!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

The next best thing to being in Baltimore's Little Italy! When the famous Bocaccio restaurant closed doors Little Italy lost one of the better eateries. Most of the staff from Bocaccio has since migrated to La Famiglia and it shows. The food is wonderful and the service second to none.
The risotto dishes rotate, as do the ravioli. Try the lobster ravioli with a rich sauce. Any of the veal entrees are tasty as well.
If you don't see what you want on the menu ask the server who will talk with the chef to see if they can provide you with your request. Everyone at the restaurant seems happy and willing to help you.
La Famiglia is a great place for a private function, the room is set apart from the rest of the main dining rooms, with an open air section, too.

“Great dinner need to work on appetizers and desserts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012 via mobile

The bolognese was excellent. The mushroom ravioli was excellent. The escargot appetizer was tasteless. The tiramisu was bland until I poured some coffee over it. But I'd definitely go back as the dinners were excellent. Easy walk from hotel colonnade near Hopkins. Great neiborhood find.

“You won't regret it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

My wife and I have dined here at least half a dozen times. Food is always excellent, service is always attentive - from the valet, to the bartender, to the waiters. Plus we are always greeted by the proprietor. Does Dino ever take a day off?! Highly recommended! Great outdoor seating on the roof.
