Overview

Sip a strong espresso at an outdoor cafe, grab a quick pizza for lunch or dine in style at a gourmet Italian restaurant in this historic section of the city, also know as Little Italy. You'll know you have arrived by the huge arched gateway, with a bronzed pinecone, which marks the entry to the neighborhood.

There is certainly an abundance of Italian Restaurants but I must say on a cold winter day in early January I was not left with any great sense of occasion walking around Federal Hill. I suspect the weather had a lot to do with it...More

If you love authentic Italian food, then you'll be like a kid in a candy store. Incredible stores where you can buy meats, cheeses, breads, desserts and prepared foods. And so many restaurants - it was hard to choose just one!

Yum, such a cute area/street to walk, lots of shops, markets, restaurants. We got some fresh pasta and sauce from one of the markets/delis. They had fresh canoli and tons of food that looked delicious. Also bread! If we lived closer I’d be here often.
