  • 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".

  • Carpaccio was Amazing!

    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!

  • Great choice for NY Eve

    Dined on 12/31/2013
    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.

    The food was fine -- but nothing special. The scallops in puff pastry were drowned in too much cream sauce and the fish was fine but not very tasty. The bisque was quite good. But the dessert was average. The service was very good. Quick and professional.

    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.

    The food was good, prices-a bit expensive. But my BIGGEST issue was having to pay for parking. One either ahd to self-park at a charge of $5.00 or valet for $7.00. The self-parking should have been included and because it is not, I will not return.

    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!

    We were looking fora local place to take a friend out to dinner and Carpaccio's filled the bill perfectly. The service was excellent; even though they were busy, we weren't rushed. The food was well prepared (try the Salmon Casino) ,and flavor able. Our waiter was very helpful in that he suggested we get the smaller size of several items, which turned out to be perfect for our dinning needs. I would heartily recommend Carpaccio to anyone looking for a very good meal at a fair price.

    Carpaccio is the dining equivalent of a singer with perfect pitch. Service is prompt and helpful without being intrusive, the food is exquisite, the atmosphere is lively without too much noise, the décor is intimate yet open, and the menu offers diverse options without being overwhelming. It's always a pleasant experience to meet a friend and eat there.

    Lunch on Monday with a friend was wonderful. We loved this restaurant and will be planning to come back again for dinner to try more of the menu; it was hard to decide on just one entrée for lunch. Definitely try one of the appetizers the restaurant is named for. It brought back lovely memories of a dinner in Orvieto. The staff is friendly and professional; they have achieved the perfect balance.

    Carpaccio is one our favorite restaurants. We met friends there who hadn't eaten there before. They were very impressed with the menu and had a tough time making a decision between the wide array of pasta choices and the fish and chicken selections. Our friends, like us, eat out very frequently and agree that this is a place to come back to. My only wish is that Carpaccio consider offering a gluten free pasta selection. With so many delicious sauce preparations, it's a shame that many of us can't enjoy those offerings.

    And, he loved it! My husband & I took my parents out for my Dad's dinner and Carpaccio was a great choice. Our appetizer selections got us off to a wonderful start. We had beef carpaccio, grilled calamari, and oysters Rockefeller. All were excellent and huge portions. But, the oysters were amazing, clearly freshly prepared. Dinner was shared pasta, one with sausage and rapini, a second seafood. Both orders were huge and fabulous. Pasta was cooked perfectly. Our one disappointment was that they were out of the grilled veal chop special. Our waiter suggested a bold red that paired well and was reasonably priced. A wonderful evening.
