This is a fun place to go with friends! Make reservations because it fills up quick. Great pizza and excellent service.

We had excellent pizzas at Hersh's. The mushroom one was lightly drizzled with some sort of balsamic finish, which really gave it some surprising zip. The crust was delightful. Good happy hour specials, two (smallish) beers for $5 from a good list. The drink list was interesting, but we didn't partake. The tiramisu for dessert was also excellent. The only... More

Hersh's pizza is somewhat similar to Homeslyce's pizza a block away, but the setting is much more desirable. Their thin crust pizza is great and they have a different flavor to please everyone. The gelato is also great so make sure you order at least one scoop.

They have great pizza... and much more! The peach crostini appetizer got us off to a great start. The caesar salad was easily shared among our party of four, and we all enjoyed the pasta with crabmeat, ravioli and margherita pizza. Each dish had just enough distinctive and significant flavors to keep it interesting. A word about parking -- if... More

Met 3 friends for drinks and dinner. Great bar! The bartenders are the real deal. They make cocktails by hand. No pre mixed stuff. We had great appetizers too. Pizza is outstanding as was the ravioli and the pasta. Once you go you'll be back.

If you are looking for great Italian food that isn't in Little Italy, this is an amazing place. The restaurant is listed as being in Federal Hill, but don't let that make you think that it is surrounded by bars and bros. Hersh's is tucked away near Riverside Park all the way at the end of Light Street. The atmosphere... More

Good location, not in the middle of the Federal Hill weekend chaos, Hersh's was a hidden neighborhood gem. My wife and I wanted to explore the non-pizza offerings. The anti pasti crispy string beans had a surprise but welcome kick. The gnocchis were house made and delicious. The cavatelli was al dente at its best, cooked perfectly with just the... More

I am not sure what all the hype is about. My fellow interns and I made a reservation, and first things first, they couldn't seat us together because we added one extra person unless we wanted to wait another hour. Second, to order a drink was impossible! Third, the pizza wasn't very impressive. I did enjoy the margarita pizza but... More

Pie is perfect. Pasta perfect. And just a bike ride from home. For urbanistas. With so many choices in Fed Hill, we come back again and again.

Happy hour specials on drinks was a great deal. We enjoyed a 2 for $5 draft beer and a specialty cocktail. Started with the nona's meatball and rosemary calamari. The two meatballs were just like any other meatball we've ever had despite the high quality of ingredients. For $10 or $5 per meatball, we felt these weren't worth it. The... More
