We had not dined in at Brendali’s since the new owners took over and the pandemic ended. We were excited to see that they have made some renovations – new paint, comfy chairs and new tables. We had a 6:30 pm reservation for 8 people....They set the table right by the door and window. There was no one in the restaurant when we arrived. A little later, a party of 8 and party of 3 came in. They have always done a robust and brisk carry out business, and this was obvious the entire time we were there. Denise was our server. She really had her hands full and she did a great job keeping all of our dinner orders straight and giving each couple their own check. We tried the following dinners: Fettuccine Bianco, Spaghetti Carbonata, 2 Chicken Diego, Lasagna, Shrimp Scampi and 2 Chicken Marsala. Everyone liked their dinners, except for the Lasagna which had no taste. We were happy to see that the restaurant is still a BYOB with no corkage fee – always a plus for our group.More

You know the food is good when you drive from Baltimore County to Baltimore City to pick up a carry-out dinner. The food at Brendali’s is always consistent – never any surprises. Our dinners were just delicious. We enjoyed the Fettuccine Bianco and Chicken Cacciatore...over linguine. They were packaged so well we did not have to reheat them when we arrived home. The portions were very generous. Thanks again for a great meal!More

Small restaurant in Federal Hill. Parking was a bit of a challenge. Cool evening and the lack of a double door made it a little cool when folks entered and exited. Brought our own wine and had no problem with getting set up. Service was...efficient and the Flounder Florentine was superb. Heads up for those that care, the chicken cacciatore comes with a bit of cheese. Bread was excellent. Great value for the money and a pleasant meal for all.More

We decided we wanted to have two different entrees from two different restaurants. My husband picked Brendali’s. He has been saying for a while how much he wanted the Fettuccine Bianco. If you have never tried it, you should. The portion was more than generous....It is bowl of perfectly cooked fettuccine with sautéed shrimp and tender bay scallops tossed in an exquisite old bay cream sauce. It was delicious. My husband was in heaven. Our thanks to the new owners, Santos and Alex.More

You know when the food is that good that you will drive from Towson to Federal Hill to pick up great Italian food from Brendali’s. Tonight, we ordered the Chicken Cacciatore over linguine and the Fettuccine Bianco. Both dishes were hot and just delicious. We...always enjoy supporting our local restaurants during this pandemic.More

Consistency is the one thing we can count on at Brendali’s. Their food is freshly prepared and always delicious. We called in our take-out order and it was ready and waiting for us when we arrived. It was so well-packed that it was still very...hot when we got home. We don‘t mind driving from Towson to Federal Hill to get a good meal. We enjoyed the Fettuccine Bianco - fettuccine with sautéed shrimp and tender bay scallops tossed in an exquisite old bay cream sauce. It was perfect! Thank you.More

Even during the pandemic, we don’t mind driving from Towson to Federal Hill to pick up dinner from Brendali’s – the food is that good! My wife and I both enjoyed the Fettuccine Bianco – a delicious bowl of perfectly cooked fettuccine with sautéed shrimp...and tender bay scallops tossed in an exquisite old bay cream sauce. It was packaged perfectly, so no drips or spills and was still hot when we arrived home. Thank you so much – we thoroughly enjoyed our dinners. Note to the buying public, please don’t forget to tip the restaurant as their staff is providing a much needed service during this pandemic.More

We have dined many times at Brendali’s, but due to the Coronavirus, we ordered take-out. It was so easy. We just called the restaurant when they opened at 4:00 PM and placed our order for pick-up at 5:00 PM. We gave them our credit card...and requested that they add a 20% tip. We just want to remind everyone not to forget to leave a generous tip for the staff who is working so hard to provide food for all of us. It is a great way to show your appreciation to the restaurant and their staff! We did not mind driving downtown from Towson because we knew our dinners would be delicious. Our order was ready when we arrived. The food was packaged extremely well; so, there was no spillage. We thoroughly enjoyed the Chicken Francese and the Fettuccine Bianco. They included two warm rolls. Everything was just perfect. Thank you so much.More

The food at Brendali’s transports us back to Italy each time. Tara and Diane made us feel so welcome. We just love the BYOB with no corkage fee. They always start you out with fresh baked rolls – so good. Each couple split a Caesar...salad. It was fresh romaine hearts topped with croutons, parmesan cheese tossed with their homemade Caesar dressing. My daughter and husband had the fettuccine bianco (sautéed shrimp and tender bay scallops tossed in an exquisite old bay cream sauce served over a bed of fettuccine). My son-in-law had the chicken diego which was a chicken breast sautéed in white wine lemon sauce with rosemary and topped with fresh spinach and mozzarella cheese. He was in heaven. I had one of my favorites, the chicken cacciatore. It was loaded with sautéed chicken with bell peppers, onions, mushrooms and marinara sauce over linguini. We all were so pleased with our entrees. Oh, but there is more, we had to end the evening on a sweet note. So we shared a Cheesecake, a Cannoli and the Ferrero Rocher Chocolate Cake. They were all delicious.More

When we want delicious Italian comfort food, we head to Brendali’s in Federal Hill. We love that it is a BYOB with no corkage fee. We were really glad that we had made a reservation, as the restaurant was packed. It had a really lively...vibe. Our friend ordered the Penne Christian (grilled chicken breast tossed with fresh spinach, garlic and virgin olive oil). She thought she would not be able to eat it all, but it was so good that she ate it all. I thoroughly enjoyed the Chicken Diego (two chicken breasts, sautéed in white wine lemon sauce with rosemary; topped with fresh spinach and mozzarella cheese) over linguine. I brought half of mine home for lunch today. My husband did not tell me that he was disappointed with his meal until we were in the car on the way home. I wish he had said something when we were in the restaurant because they would have corrected the dish immediately. He ordered the Veal Saltimbocca (veal sautéed in a white wine lemon sauce with sage, topped with prosciutto ham and mozzarella cheese served over a bed of spinach). He said it did not taste the same as usual. We finally figured it out. The chef added asparagus to the dish which made it very chewy. Even with that mistake, we were still pleased with the service and the rest of our dinners.More

We were visiting a friend and decided to order in. We each ordered from a different service. This was the first time I ordered from Grub Hub. My wife and I wanted Italian, so we placed the order for food from Brendali’s in Federal Hill....We were impressed by the quick and efficient service we received from Grub Hub. Most of all, our dinner orders arrived hot and right on time. My wife and I shared a Caesar Salad. We both savored our main courses of Veal Francese and of Chicken Francese over linguini. Everything was just perfect.More

Imagine our surprise when we arrived Saturday night at 6:00 PM, to find the restaurant packed with customers totally enjoying their dinners. There was a great vibe; albeit, rather noisy. The one suggestion I will offer is to make a reservation for dinner, especially on...the weekends. We had a reservation for 12 and our table was waiting for us. Tara and Diane, our servers, were both at the top of their game. How they managed to keep us all straight was remarkable. Brendale’s is a BYOB with no corkage fee which our group loves. We all ordered something different. My husband had the chef prepare for him one of his favorites – veal Francese (tender slices of veal sautéed in a light lemon butter white wine sauce) with a side of oil and garlic linguine. My chicken cacciatore over linguine was loaded with sautéed chicken with bell peppers, onions, mushrooms with marinara sauce. Everyone really liked their dinners and the restaurant. Thank you for taking such great care of us. It was a fun evening!More

We had a great time at Brendali’s. We popped in for dinner. Joyce took excellent care of us. They always start you off with freshly baked rolls – yummy! Our friend went for something spicy and ordered the Shrimp Fradiavolo with a side of meat...sauce. She asked that they serve it over spaghetti instead of linguini, which they did. The restaurant is always so accommodating. My wife savored one of her favorites, Chicken Cacciatore, and I enjoyed the Fettuccine Bianco. We decided to be bad and ordered desserts, which we shared. Our friend had the Cannoli and I had the Chocolate Temptation – what a sweet way to end a delicious meal. BYOB with no corkage fee is always a plus for us.More

We just love introducing our friends to Brendali’s. We did it twice this week. On both Wednesday and Sunday, we met friends for an early dinner. Here you will experience great Italian food in a quiet and friendly atmosphere. The service is always spot on....Joyce and Tara took excellent care of us. We truly like BYOB with no corkage fee. The food is always fresh and delicious. Our friends, my husband and I enjoyed Chicken Cacciatore, Veal Francese, Two Fettuccine Bianco, Cheese Ravioli, Two Chicken Francese, and a Chicken Parmigiana. Pedro, the owner/chef, came out to chat with us, always a nice touch. Brandali’s totally impressed our friends. We truly had delightful evening on Wednesday and Sunday. Thank You!More
