Best Italian Restaurant in Little Italy or Fells Point

globalcityzen Nov 9, 2011 08:49 AM


I'm taking a friend out for his 30th birthday and was looking for suggestions for great Italian restaurants in Fells Point or Little Italy. One caveat is that he's allergic to seafood. Plan B is to go to Carmine's in DC at his request.

Thanks in advance.

    Where is Little Italy? (I've only lived here since March)

    Edit: NVM, I figured out this is referring to Baltimore.

      Guys, this isn't close. the best Italian food in or near Little Itly and Fells Point is Cinghiale.

      822 Lancaster Street, Baltimore, MD 21202

        lawhound! i completely forgot about cinghiale. it is wonderful, i agree. BUT if someone is going for a more "little italy" type of experience -- you know, smaller, more neighborhoody kind of place, this is definitely not it. no question the food and service is excellent, but it's also a "beautiful people" type of place.

          I would also say that, while Cinghiale has very good food, it also prices high enough to qualify as a poor value.

      Sotto Sopra is good, I agree, but Aldo's (on HIgh Street in the heart of Little Italy) is a very elegant and superb dining experience. I prefer it.

        Are you dead set on Little Italy? Sotto Sopra is much better than anything you'll find in LI.
