  1. Stella Note is a cool place with good food. Rt. 40 Ellicott City

    1. not italian but very good is Victoria Gastropub on Snowden River Parkway. Excellent food, reasonable prices, nice atmosphere and staff. google it and check out the website and menu

      1. I second Dining with Doc's suggestion of Victoria Gastropub.

        For Italian, you could also try Aida Bistro off Rte 175. It's a little more pricey than Victoria so check the menu online.

        1. If you want a more casual dining recommendation near Victoria Gastropub -- try CoalFire pizza. They have more than just pizza on the menu. If it's too casual for Father's Day - it's an interesting alternative in the area.
