Hello,

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.

        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.
