    We love Carpaccio. We sat outside by the gorgeous fountain. Mussel and clams were shared by table. Mozzarella caprese and Mederanno salad next. The Toscano Carpaccio is the best. Truffle oil finishes the dish . Great place for summer outdoor dining

    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.

    Great salads, meatballs and bronzino. Bad veal parm; it was breaded (rather than sautéed) over-cooked, over-cheesed and ridiculously thin. Service was attentive initially but non-existent near end. Started with drinks indoors; good atmosphere. Dined outside; setting is lovely.

    The appetizer platter was fantastic. Meats and cheeses with olives, artichoke hearts, eggplant and peppers. Only negative, the bread basket should have been replenished. All four meals were plentiful, well presented and delicious. We will be back despite the parking issues.

    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!

    We love this resturant. In the Spring, Summer, and Fall there is usually live music outside, which keeps our kids occupied and increases the overall dining experience. The food is outstanding. 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 wife and I entertained a couple over from England because of their fondness for Italian food. They were not disappointed and stated that this would become one of their favorite places. Excellent food and service as always. Unfortunately we were unable to order one of the specials since they had run out by the time we ordered.

    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.

    Located near the Western Hotel in a trendy area of Annapolis, this place was a pleasant surprise. We went during a holiday rush and did not feel rushed nor by the packed restaurant. They were full. The food is the answer but the service was great. Everyone loved what they ordered, from the lobster ravioli to the tiramisu. Weare going to come back to try out their other items . The menu has a great selection.

    In the last few weeks, I've been to half a dozen restaurants in Annapolis and they've all been good, in my opinion. But Carpaccio was by far the best one. The food was amazing and the service was excellent. It's a very clean romantic setting. The only draw back is the entire place is open... Maybe a little too open. But still a 5 star overall.

    This was my first visit. The food was sinfully good with heaping portions. The service was unbelievable friendly and efficient. There were three in our party and each of us ordered salads and entrees. By accident, we only ordered two appetizers. In the middle of the appetizers and salads, we asked the waiter to reduce our entree order to two with three plates...and we still boxed up food to take home. By the way, we're not light eaters. Even though we were stuffed, we couldn't leave without trying the toasted almond cake - outstanding! I'll be back!

    We used open table to make an 11pm dinner reservation here on a Saturday night. (Planning to have dinner after a show at the Compass Rose Theater across the street). Upon arrival, the place seemed empty. Turns out the kitchen closes at 11pm! We made the best of it by ordering 3 appetizers to share (including a namesake carpaccio!) and had a nice evening. We would return for a real dinner again at an earlier hour.

    We ate here for a birthday dinner. I love the branzino and every time I have ordered it it has been outstanding. This time was the same. The bread is always fantastic and because it was his birthday they brought out a slice of Tiramisu with a candle. That was delicious and we will surely order that again!!!!

    first time dining here. efficient front end- a little flustered when our on-line reservation was not on the list, but gave us a table anyway ( turns out someone had mistakenly counted us as already checked in) . Had a very nice wine selections and not terribly marked up- basic decent chianti was $28/bottle, we had the Mazzai Zisola nero d'avola ) locally $29 in store for $66. food was very well prepared- pizzas are wood fired. we stayed and talked for quite awhile, and although restaurant was full, there was not even the slightest hint of pressure to turn the table over. overall a very satisfying meal with friends.

    Absolutely an enjoyable dinner night out. We enjoyed our food, service was very attentive and made us feel like they were waiting specifically for us to arrive even with lots of customers around. Not a spot for a regular dinner out, but a place for a special occasion that you can guarantee a lovely night out.

    the food here is always excellent and theyy have a good selection of wine and drinks. The menu was changed since my last meal there over a year ago and was missing some of the pasta dishes I loved. We visited during restaurant week, and it was very crowded, nonetheless we still were seated within 15 mins of our reservation. The service is usually really good, but this time our waiter kept forgetting things and was not as attentive as our previous visits.
