I am a sucker for any type of Italian food. I remember taking trips to Baltimore for Orioles baseball with my family growing up and we always went to Little Italy for lunch or dinner.
I am not even Italian, but it's definitely one of my favorite styles of food.
I had been wanting to try this new place since I saw it was open while going to Firebirds for lunch one day.
There is a vast menu to choose from and you can't help but enjoy the relaxing atmosphere.
The dining room is lit perfectly, the service is good and you really have a feeling of relaxation while you're there.
I decided to choose the linguine and white wine clam sauce, although it was a struggle to find just one dish to order. It was delightful to say the least.
The creamy pasta and large amount of clams accompanying it were a perfect mix.
The dish also had a spicy zing to it, which was an unexpected surprise.
I have to admit, I typically do not order spicy foods, unless I have a urge to do so. Even when I do go spicy, I never order something above mild spicy.
For most people, I would say the spiciness of the dish would range about a three or four on a 10 scale.
Despite its spiciness, I was happy with my choice and the best part is it wasn't too expensive, either.
