Dinner in Baltimore's Little Italy?
We are meeting friends in Baltimore for dinner on a Saturday night and I have fond memories of delicious meals in Little Italy? Can anyone recommend any restaurants and possibly an Italian pastry shop where we could go for dessert.? Thanks.
How much would you want to spend? What sort of meal are you looking for? Pastas, secondi, a great salad, pizzas?
Vaccarro's tends to shine in cookies, gelato, and above all Cannoli. Pastry has never been much of a draw.
Agree about Aldo's. it is my father's favorite restaurant. Da Mimmo's has a couple o good dishes. We used to go to Sabatino's for a appetizers and a bookmaker salad only.
Aldo's menu recommendations:
Pasta with clams
Wild boar pasta (special)
Orecchiette with sausage and broccoli rabe
Lobster fettucine (my mother loves it, not as flavorful a I would like YMMV)
Porcini Agnollotti (the best)
Veal milanese(pretty much te only thing I order)
The fish specials are ok. The gnocchi special and eggplant parmesan tower are to die for.
The do a beautiful cream limoncello that is homemade.
