Anyone been to Gino Troia in Canton?
It looks charming inside, but seems like it's usually empty. Has anyone been there?
We go there often. It's fairly new (though Gino isn't new to Baltimore!) so perhaps people haven't discovered it yet. The food is to die for. One of my favorites is recita di Mamma - "My mother's recipe" - ample fresh seafood in a wonderful wine-flavored broth. Everything is fresh, and made from scratch. The menu is organized like a true Italian ristorante - anitpasti first, then pasta, then pesce (fish), then carne (meat), contorni (side dishes, Dolci (sweets). Sausages and rapini . . meatballs . . .Steak Fiorentina - order ahead. Fabulous pasta dishes, needless to say.
It is fabulous food and you should go. It is a hidden secret. It is no longer Bruschetta.
Gino not only charms the front of the house he makes the food sing from the kitchen to your plate.
