I'm not Italian, but if I was I imagine my Grandma would feed me like for lunch like they do here. Everything is FRESH and from scratch. It's a tiny spot but you can dine outside on a bench, or on the bocci court outback.

Every time we are in Baltimore we make it a point to stop here for lunch. It is a must and the home made pasta salad is to die for.
