Need Recs Bel Air, MD

I'll be in Bel Air and am looking for an Italian restaurant, not too expensive or fancy. I'd like to try something other than Bertucci's. thanks.

  1. My Three Sons in Edgewood is decidedly not fancy (there are tables, but you order at the counter), but it's very good.

      Thanks.....hope to try it.....

    2. This place is divey but Tamborino's has the best dang subs i have ever had in my LIFE! i am sure the other food is great but i can never get past the italian sub.

      1. Definitely try Italian Sensations. Excellent italian. Carry-out style with tables and waiters and they serve wine. I drive from Baltimore County just to get their pizza.

        1. Scotto's Cafe is really good. Also, not in Bel Air, but Basta Pasta (Fallston),, and Enotria (Forest Hill) are both great options.

            I second Scotto's, on Route 24 near Business Route 1. Good cooking, friendly and efficient staff who give honest advice. It's a place where you can go for a night out, or take the kids.

          2. Scotto's or Savona's. Scotto's ia bit more upscale of the two, but the food is consistently solid. Agree with Carey - Italian Sensations is an excellent upscale pizza joint. Pastas are surprisingly fresh.
