The food was divine. We got bruschetta and burrata for starters, red house wine, and seafood linguini. All pastas are homemade, pretty much everything was homemade, we also got frozen cake at the end, which was suberb. Sea food was loaded, and it was delicious.

By coincidence we were there on a 3 for 33 and wine pairing for 50. Best Italian in a long time. Small but good beer selection as well.

We can't wait to see you again - the Neri has been our signature dish since it was named the best pasta dish in Maryland in 2017, but I think there's some other menu options that rival it for sure!

The food and the staff are amazing. Each course was as enjoyable as the last. The staff absolutely love their jobs. They were very engaging, knowledgeable, and friendly. Farm to table fresh and cooked to perfection in perfect Venetian fashion. Would highly recommend.
