  • Lovely Restaurant Week Meal

    Dined on 2/28/2014
    We really enjoyed our restaurant week meal at Carpaccio. The food was lovely, especially their spicy marina sauce. Our server seemed new, in regards to how well he knew the menu/wine list, but otherwise the service was great - full water glasses, etc. The meal took about 2 hours for 3 courses, but the restaurant was packed (I'd suggest reservations, they were turning people away). The wine list is mediocre, especially in regards to domestics, and I felt it was a bit overpriced. Overall Carpaccio was a pleasant surprise, we will be back.

    Carpaccio is like going over to your Great Uncle Vincenzo's place in Philly. If it is daytime, expect the kids to be included and it will be a fun time with lots of laughter and stories and family and great food. If it is evening the youngest kids might not be there, but older, respectful-of-their-elders children will be, and it will be quieter, but with the same stories and great food. Carpaccio fits your mood and occasion because it is about the culture of family, food and love for the experience. When the weather is good you cannot beat the piazza! I go there for business meetings at lunch, family brunches on any Sunday or Easter, and dinner with my wife to remind her why we are still together after all these years.

  • The food outshined the waitress

    I've only ever ate at the bar or been there for brunch. I always grab to go food from Carpaccio to go. It was a double date night with friends that we haven't seen in almost a year. Everything from drinks to dessert was phenomenal MINUS our absentee waitress. 15 minutes to greet us, was only ever there if we had food on the table. The woman who was filling our water was more attentive than our actual server. Coming from the restaurant industry on all levels, make sure that your staff wants to be there because if they don't, I promise there are servers out there that need jobs. Thank you for a beautiful evening. If it weren't for our great company, delicious wine and fantastic food, I wouldn't come back because of the service.

    First of all, food was terrific. Everything cooked correctly, no soggy pasta, acidic sauce etc. Being Sicilian, I understand my bias and rather high standard I set when enjoying Italian cuisine. Carpaccio represented themselves well and proved to have high standards as well. The service was attentive and helpful even though it was a very busy evening (Valentines Day). My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening, we were never rushed and were allowed to enjoy things at our own pace, not the restaurants. I also felt the prices were very competitive. I have paid much more at other places and not enjoyed it half as much. Highly recommended.

    The restaurant lives up to its name, Carpaccio. So far I've tried 2 of its carpaccio dishes and they're superb. My boyfriend and I had fhe lobster and scallop special. The scallop on the shell added to the dish was missing a scallop. I brought it to the wait staff's attention and I was brought a plate of 4 more. Overall, the whole dish was delicious, served hot and pasta was done right and not mushy. Overall, from the apetizer to the dessert, this place is awesome. Returning today with my two daughters as our Valentine's treat. Ambiance was okay. Only bec the seating area seems so packed and you have very little privacy.

    My wife and I went to this restaurant as a Valentine's dinner. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and the restaurant was very well maintained. The staff was very courteous and the pricing was good for this type of dining. The only improvement I would suggest is a little more privacy between tables. The couple sitting next to us was pretentious, maybe even arrogant.

They even were expecting me due to the online reservation thag was made. I had no issues and did not have to wait. The inside was amazing. Your money will be well invested.

    The food is excellent and the location is perfect...just across the street from Compass Rose Theater, the superb new professional theater in Annapolis. Service is prompt, so it is easy to have a leisurely dinner of excellent food (many choices on the menu), excellent wine, both at fair prices, and then stroll to the theater for a show.

    This restaurant was quite a surprise. We have always walked by and from the outside, you would never know the place is jam packed with people, energy and good food! We waited a few minutes to get a table but worth the wait. The wine list is extensive and menu is great for tomato lovers (lots of marinara and ragu's). There was no delay in food (just the right amount of time - not too soon or too delayed). Generous portions too! Would go back in a heartbeat. We sat in the bar area which seemed a little less congested than the main open restaurant - this is the way to go!

  • In the shadow of their leader
    Iamartie
    Dined on 1/10/2014
    In my experience, organizations tend to reflect the attitude and personality of their leader. It would seem this restaurant is no exception. Upon walking in we were referred to a manager who was very business-like, direct and to the point; in other words, follow that person, sit down and eat. The rest of the meal progressed in the same manner, very functional, very organized but a reduced level of human interactions. When there was interaction with the wait staff, it was mostly an effort by them to up-sell menu items such as wine and desserts. Not indicative of better Italian restaurants. We do enjoy the food, the location and service. We have been there numerous times and will return. I guess we feel it could be a bit more "user-friendly".

    For our wedding, we had 18 members of our families come to out to Annapolis (where we live) from California and we originally planned on having our dinner at another restaurant in town, but when they bailed two weeks before the date, we began to freak out. We all were staying at the Westin next door and Carpaccio accommodated the large group and we knew they were good from the reviews, but had no idea how amazing this place was. Service was absolutely on point by being super friendly and fast, while the food was to die for. All of our families couldn't believe how amazing Carpaccio was, and we were so relieved to have everything taken care of for us. For a small group, to a large one, Carpaccio will be an amazing experience for you!

    Our reservation for NY Eve was at 9:15. We were seated at about 10:00, but I didn't expect to be seated on time. The restaurant was crowded and the bar was standing room only....waiting for seats in the dining room. When seats opened up at the bar, we sat down and ordered a couple of glasses of wine. I really like their wine list. When we were seated, the Manager/Owner...not sure who it was....told our waiter to give us a round of drinks on the house because of the wait. This came as a complete surprise! Once seated, the service was above average and the food came out tasting delicious and rather quickly considering how busy it was.

    Came here on recommendation from a friend who is local. Very Big Italian food menu, great portion size. Could easily share pastas. Kids could order a slice of cheese pizza rather than a whole pizza. This was NYEve and when we left at 6:45 it was fully booked. Decorations were festive for the night. It is a short drive to the waterfront or 20 minute walk. Cab from here to the waterfront was $8 without tip. There are many restaurants in Annapolis, but this one is for when you are looking for a nice Italian meal that will satisfy many.

    First time to Carpaccio and it was a great one. It is a Tuscan Italian restaurant, so it has a different flavor than most Italian places, however the food is EXCELLENT. My fiancée and I could not find anything wrong with our dishes (plus the complementary pizza bread was just awesome) and the desert (Tiramisu) was just delicious. Our services was above and beyond what we expected as well! We have been going to dinner in Annapolis for many years and this is one of the best places to eat in town, especially for Italian food! We will be back for sure!
