Sip a strong espresso at an outdoor cafe, grab a quick pizza for lunch or dine in style at a gourmet Italian restaurant in this historic section of the city, also know as Little Italy. You'll know you have arrived by the huge arched gateway, with a bronzed pinecone, which marks the entry to the neighborhood.

Not quite NY Little Italy but nice

Ate in Federal Hill at night and it was nice. Live music in the middle of the strip. Nice to hang out. Go to Pastiche for dessert later...yum

Federal Hill is definitely a fun place to visit. There are so many excellent Italian restaurants - Camille's, Sienna, Pan e Vino, and you cannot miss a visit to Pastiche for a fabulous dessert. The Italian markets like Venda Ravioli is fabulous and there are several excellent bakeries. Definitely a fun place to wander around!

Went twice trying to understand the draw and couldn't find it. I suppose its worth seeing for the history - just don't expect anything special.

I LOVE Federal Hill, not just sort of love it, but this is my special treat to myself when I want comfort food or want fresh pasta.
