For a town covered in Old Bay seasoning and the objectively insectoid crab meat, to happen across subtle, poetic Italian food was as shocking as finding out there was gambling at Rick's American Cafe. Straight up tomato soup brought the very best out of the...More

An excellent Italian restaurant that has a wide variety of well-prepared offerings. The food is always good, and the selection is equally good.

I eat here a few times a year with family, and we consider this our favorite restaurant in Baltimore. You can easily spend $50/person+, so we save it for special occasions. The food is better than anything I could find in Rome, although I didn't...More
