This nothing-special restaurant offered average food and size too big for Eurpeans. If you plan to discussion over the table it will be a chalange as the music played too loud.

Thanks for your feedback. I do not understand what happened, since our music does not play loud. If it was a bother, we could have easily turned it down. Can you please contact me so I can better understand your concerns. Thanks. Joe at 410-953-0500.

A perennial favorite, we were happy to partake of the fine & generous choices for this winter’s Restaurant Week. The Lobster Arancini, Lamb Risotto, and Roasted Trout were delicious as were the dessert choices.
