Interesting place, but not huge. I was picturing more of a market like the Amish Market in Annapolis, but this is more restaurant. Overall we had a very good experience. I liked my glass of wine enough to buy a bottle in the market after dinner. Leave room for gelato! Lots of flavors.....

I have eaten here quite a few times because it is close to the hotel where I stay each week for work. The pizza is average but again the place is close. Today I was waiting for my slices that I ordered to go. The server brought out what looked like my order and sat it on the table beside... More

Tonight we decided to try Italian Market. It is near the hotel we are staying in and it is on the hotel's list of recommended restaurants. This is an "order at the counter - they bring it to your table" sort of restaurant. They also do take-out and have a drive-up window. This is a rather large place as they... More

I was most impressed with the great selection of wines. I felt as though I was in Wine Heaven! The prices were a little high but the access to these wines are not easy to come by. You can purchase a bottle at a modest price if you cannot afford the more expensive bottles. The food was superb and you... More

Restaurant was a bit odd in that it sold a wide variety of Italian dishes at moderate prices but also sold wines that were gourmet (pricey) levels . Great food but having the "high end" wines were an unusual combination for this type of restaurant..

We stopped to eat here on a Tuesday night while in town. This is an interesting eating establishment. The seating area have several sections and you can pick where to sit down. You order up front and they give you a placard for your table where they will bring you the food. The homemade Gelato looked great but would have... More

My family and I grew up enjoying The Italian Market. The pizza, the antipasti, the gelato and the atmosphere & energy with-in the restaurant - it all use to be great. This past weekend my wife and I took our kids (3 of them) to enjoy some pizza. I called on the way to see if they had any full... More

If you want great Italian food at a reasonable price, the Italian Market is your place. We went for lunch with another couple and I ordered the meatball sub and it was delicious and the bread was awesome. Mange!

We have shopped and dined at the Italian Market ever since we moved to Annapolis 9 years ago. It's family owned and operated with a wonderful, friendly atmosphere. They have a wonderful grocery section with lots of Italian specialties that you can't find elsewhere. I do a lot of Italian cooking and depend on cheeses, pastas and meats from the... More

Pizza crust was great - thin but sturdy. It had a fresh taste easily complemented by the sauce. The best part was the cheese - great taste and right amount. The calzone was great also. The Caesar salad was the better option over the house salad. Service was great although not a big deal. You could have a conversation in... More
