    Thanks to Open Table, we were pleasantly introduced to this restaurant within walking distance to our hotel, O'Callahan's. Although we arrived on a very busy football weekend night, very request, from an outside table near the lighted fountain, to splitting a salad that was presented on two plates for us, was accomodated. The authentic Tuscan food was delicious and abundant, served with hot, fresh bread even at 9:00 pm! In a city known for fresh seafood, don't overlook this excellent choice where you can also get traditional Italian AND seafood. Live music outside at a perfect volume made for a perfect evening under the stars. A plus is being located right on the city trolley line for those staying near the harbor.

    This was our first time dining outside at Carpaccio. We had eaten outside at Fado, which shares this outdoor seating area with Carpaccio, but Carpaccio's food and service is better. It was a perfect night to eat outside. Comfortable temperature and humidity. I had the seafood risotto, my wife had the lamb risotto, and we had a nice chianti. Later as we were finishing our bottle of wine, the lights in the fountain came on, and we were sitting right next to it. It was a great dining experience, which is what we've come to expect from this restaurant.

    Beautiful restaurant with a great outdoor dining scene. Our service and waiter were terrific. Great menu which the waiter explained and made helpful reccomendations. We had the scallop appetizer with pesto sauce which was excellent. We split an entree of fusilli with pancetta which also was excellent. We will be back.

    We chose the place based on its proximity to our hotel. It met expectation on that. The drinks were a little pricey and not that good (Long Island iced tea). The food combinations were fantastic, and the entrees were good,but that was it. The eggplant appetizer was not well executed. The eggplant was bland and mushy. I would order an entrée and dine in the room next time, but when traveling it is probably better to find a good restaurant to visit.

    I've written several reviews about Carpaccio's, and this one is no different. Outstanding food and top-notch waitstaff who *know* how to serve wine. The waitress brought a decanter over with the wine and asked if I wanted it decanted when its opened (so the bottle never left my sight). Seriously top-notch place. I go out of my way to stop there whenever I'm around.

    The carpaccio was fabulous. As was the tomato and mozzarella appetizer and ravioli special. And a rather descent selection of wines by the glass. But what happened to our server? She was non-existent. We would have ordered more wine but she didn't come around again until we were finished with our entrees...asking if we wanted dessert. Service needs to improve.

    Carpaccio's is a great spot, a bit off the beaten path on West Street right by the Westin Hotel. We dined there two years ago while staying at the Westin, and enjoyed the outdoor seating by the fountain and a top notch meal. We returned this year and found it equally satisfying. On nice evenings it is great to sit outside by the fountain. The food is terrific, and the service has been excellent both times we were there. They have great cocktails, and a very extensive wine list. You can't go wrong here for a wonderful evening at reasonable prices.

    Seize the opportunity to eat at Carpaccio's. In a delightful departure from the usual rolls with frozen butter, Carpaccio's provides complimentary marinara-topped garlic bread slices and herb rolls that were outstanding! For my entree, I ordered the POLLO SCARPARIELLO - supposedly a single chicken breast (must have been butterflied), providing two generous portions of chicken, with wild mushrooms in a rich marsala sauce over butter-soft chunked potatoes. My wife ordered the organic spinach salad, with a refreshing combination of fruits, cheese and macadamia nuts, moistened with a raspberry vinaigrette. I was very tempted by the specials, but the $30+ price tag for an entree made it a no-go ... as was the case with quite a few entrees.

    The server didn't have much of a personality and wasn't all that friendly. When ordering, she failed to provide options as far as the type of sauce we wanted. However, I was displeased that an option was not given considering there are different types of sauces. I would only hope that servers are consistent with how they treat their guests, especially by providing them with options.

    There is something very European about dining outside at Carpaccio. We shared the polenta and mushroom app. It was very good, but a bit filling. Our entrees were the Pollo Sunrise and Vitello Porcini. Both were very good and there was enough of the chicken to take home. The truffled Mac 'n Cheese did not excite us the way we thought it might. The down side was the kid on the skateboard who was doing circles on the bricks through most of our dinner. I was surprised to realize that his parents were sitting at a table out of earshot of the noise the skateboard made.

    We had a great meal outside by the fountain. The weather was perfect and people watching was entertaining. I was worried about all the comments about bad service, but we had a great experience. The food was delicious, but my entree's lemon butter sauce was too heavy handed. My husband and two teens really enjoyed their meals. Two tables near us had their small dogs. The restaurant supplied them with water bowls. It is very nice to see Annapolis becoming pet friendly.

    Stopped in for lunch with my wife and daughter. Food is elegant, well proportioned and fairly priced. Started with an outstanding dirty martini, bruscetta and flash fried calamari. Lobster ravioli was luscious and filling, my daughter had three shells from heaven...and they were! Some of the best food in Annapolis, I am never disappointed. Stop in when you want to impress someone with an excellent dining experience. Sit outside by the fountain if the weather is nice!

At one point we were eating here at least twice a week. We have never had bad service or a bad meal. Sit at the bar, outside, or inside and you will have a great experience.

    My husband and I had dinner on a very busy Friday night. Initially, the service was excellent. We artived an hour early and they seated us immediately. It was colder than we thought outside, so they quickly moved us inside. Wine and appetizer came fast. Then we waited and waited. Our salad never made an appearance. We poured our own second and third glasses of wine. When our entrees were served, the waitress came over to apologize for the kitchen. Our desserts were on the house, but it would have been nice to receive an apology from the manager.
