Downtown Baltimore Italian question
Any suggestions/recommendations of the following?
This would be a casual dinner for six adults who never get to see each other, coming together from around the country...so good atmosphere, not rushed, somewhat casual...
any hints appreciated. Thanks.

Can't say that I thought the food at Sammy's was good. I remember burnt garlic and too much EVOO in the broccoli rabe dish. And don't even remember what else we got, it was that unmemorable.
Sotta Sopra is probably a little more high-end than casual. I've only had their RW food, and wasn't impressed. Not that it's bad, but I expected more from everything that I had heard.
La Tavola was my old stand-by back in the day, but I haven't been in ages. I always enjoyed the food and the service.
Della Notte surprised me. I wasn't expecting much, and came out surprised that I would like to go back. Kitschy? Yes. But the food was great, and the gnocchi were light years better than Da Mimmo's! Service was great, too.
I would recommend Chiapparellis. They are a block into Little Italy, very walkable from the inner harbor. They are very casual, no dress code so you can walk over after touring the inner harbor.
