Father's Day Dinner in Columbia, MD

DChrissy80 Jun 9, 2009 07:58 AM

I'm taking my dad and nine year old sister to dinner for Father's Day. I know most restaurants will be crowded, but I'm looking for something nice in the vicinity...it doesn't have to be Columbia Proper. He really likes Italian food. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

        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.

          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.
