Little Italy in Baltimore

Baltimore's Little Italy has a few streets filled with Italian restaurants. (See a full list of restaurants here.) Of course, that isn't to say that there aren't great Italian restaurants throughout the city. My husband and I recently dined at the Enoteca Cinghiale, a few blocks away from Little Italy.

We enjoyed two pasta dishes:

Hand Formed Tortellini Filled with Prosciutto, Mortadella, Ricotta, Rosemary Sauce
Squid Ink Farfalle with lobster

Everything was delicious and the atmosphere was very contemporary-Italian, with a beautiful, wooden bar and center work area where waitstaff were slicing cured meats and assembling bruschette.

Looking forward to returning to Baltimore for another meal! What's your favorite Italian restaurant there?
