Baltimore Little Italy

Baltimore, Maryland

The basics

Dining options in Little Italy range from casual to upscale restaurants. A few favorites include Sabatino’s, which has been in business for more than 50 years, homey, mural-covered Café Gia, and La Tavola for fine dining. If you can’t decide where to go, join a food tour that lets you sample specialties from various eateries. Also be sure to stop at the area’s bakeries for Italian pastries: Vaccarro’s is famous for its cannoli.

Even if you have no plans to eat, Little Italy is worth visiting for a stroll through its charming cobblestone streets where, in the summer, you may happen upon a bocce ball game in action.

St. Leo’s Church

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Renaissance Revival–style St. Leo the Great Roman Catholic Church is the heart of Little Italy. Established in 1881, it was the first church in Maryland built specifically for Italian immigrants, and is known for its cultural as well as architectural significance, having been the site of baptisms, marriages, and funerals for many generations of community members. Visitors can attend mass from Tuesday through Sunday.
