Diner Reviews
  • "My group had such a good time celebrating 2 birthdays. The service was timely, but we did not feel rushed to turn over our table. Try to get a table in Kitty's station. She's a friendly, fun, kind, attentive waitress. As an added attraction, parking was easy and convenient."

  • "I am a long-time Sabatino's patron. Left Baltimore about 20 years ago for the Howard County area, but when I return for any reason, Sabatino's will always be my first choice. The food and service have always been first rate... the years have changed nothing in that regard."

  • "Sabatino's has delicious food and wonderful service. We are never disappointed when we have the opportunity to eat there. They are family friendly. We took our granddaughters and they loved it. They have an extensive wine list with the reds from Tuscany being our favorites. Excellent choice for any occasion."

  • "The food was amazing. Our server didn't come ask us if we needed anything and didn't ask us to box our left overs. She just took them away and we never got them."

  • "Our family enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing and delicious meal together. The servers were extremely attentive and personable. We enjoyed running into family friends there. Sabatino's is that kind of place-- like an old friend. Familiar and delightful, never lost her charm."

  • "Service was a little slow, but it was a Saturday night. The Alfredo sauce was great. The facility could use a reno, & it wouldn't take too $ much to update moderate style. But, a decent place to fine."

  • "My first time there; my Mother used to go there often years ago. The food is authentic true Italian food. It was absolutely delicious! We will be going back there for sure. The place reminds me of my Sicilian Grandmothers home. And we Loved our waitress, Kitty. She is wonderful."

  • "My family has been going to Sabatino's for over 40 years,, food is always great,,service is top-notch,,the only thing I found different on this visit was the food portions are noticeably smaller and the salads don't seem to be as fresh as they used to be,, looked like bag salad and that used to be my favorite part of the dinner"

  • "We are from out of state and had a memorable lunch at Sabatinos about a year ago. We were so happy to have the opportunity to eat dinner there this past weekend. The Bookmaker salad, eggplant parm, and baked rigatoni are our favorites. Of course, we had to save room for their unbelievable cannoli for dessert. We are looking forward to our next visit to Baltimore and eating at Sabatinos. "

  • "A well-patronized restaurant with a quiet atmosphere; a bit worn around the edges, but very comfortable and welcoming. The house salad was the only disappointment -- too many crunchy vegetables and not enough greens; it was surprising to visit an Italian restaurant with no Caesar salad on the menu. The meat ravioli was the best I've ever had -- a sublime filling in a super-thin pillow of home-made pasta; the marinara sauce was excellent, too. The house red wine was fine -- a relatively inexpensive alternative to the pricier bottles on the wine list. The cannoli were very good, just a touch too sweet. Great service by a very attentive and helpful staff."

  • "If you are looking for really good family style Italian cooking look no farther - Sabatino's has it all. They handled our table of eight with ease including gluten free requests. Servers were nice and grumpy at the same time, just as you would expect. We had fish, chicken and pasta dishes - all were great. Plenty of wine and cocktails on top of it and the check was very reasonable. We will come back for sure."

  • "I had eaten at Sabatino's several years ago, so when I found myself back in Baltimore . We were both disappointed. The Famous Bookmaker salad must apparently be famous for how bad it is. It was soaked with their "famous" house dressing, which although it is good should not overpower the salad. The shrimp looked like it came from a can and the salami was small diced pieces barely visible on the salad plate. The mussels posilipo was a generous portion of large very tough mussels, that were very fishy tasting. Pasta was average. The veal dish was also tough. The service was average, nothing terrible , nothing great. The main courses were so disappointing we did not even consider dessert. Will not be on my list of places to revisit!"

  • "I can't begin to describe how disappointing our meal was!! Appetizers were served within 2 minutes of ordering them - makes you wonder how!! We ordered the entrees when the appetizers arrived. We barely finished the appetizers and the entrees arrived. Very fast! How can an Italian restaurant ruin manicotti? The noodle tasted raw - the cheese solid and heavy. I'm not sure how it could be so hot yet taste uncooked at the same time. Only one of the 7 in our party actually enjoyed the entree. We were done and out in 45 minutes!! Not exactly what we were expecting and hoping for. "

  • "We have dined at Sabatino's several times over the past few years. The bookmaker salad remains good, but the veal was quite disappointing - a bit over done and not tender, poor sauce. Perhaps the regular cooks were not working on Mother's day......."

  • "Sabitinos never disappoints! The food is always amazing and the service is always superb. Nothing in terms of the decorum or the wait staffs uniforms has changed since the 70's but that's part of the charm that makes up Sabitinos...not to mention their fabulous recipe for their house dressing!!! I have been going to sabitinos since moving to Baltimore and will continue to go for as long as I reside in or around Baltimore. "

  • "Was pleased with the service, very accommodating when I had to change my reservation from 8 to 10. As we walked in the door the smells were mouth watering. All of us enjoyed our meals. The servings were large and almost all of us left with lunch for the next day! I'd go there again when I'm in the Baltimore area."

  • "Our family was in town for a wedding, and the 10 of us decided to eat at Sabatino's in Little Italy on Saturday night. No problem making a reservation through Open Table for 7:00pm. We have been eating at Sabatino's for many years when we are in Baltimore. I read some negative reviews recently, even someone we know from Baltimore telling us not to go there. We have had nothing but good experiences here, so we ignored the nay sayers, and we are glad we did. Everyone enjoyed their meal! I would recommend Sabatino's to anyone going to Little Italy in Baltimore. WE had a nice discussion with the owner as we were leaving about the history of the restaurant, and some of the famous people that have come through the doors. Very nice man!"

  • "You really can't go wrong among the many restaurants to choose from in Baltimore's Little Italy, but I always recommend Sabatino's because it is a neighborhood institution. The portions are generous and the atmosphere is friendly and warm. It really feels like a family run business and their secret salad dressing is almost worth the trip alone."
