We have not been to Chips for a long time due to moving out of the area. We were back in town to see a concert and decided to go there. The meal was incredible and the service was great! We will be back in the Baltimore area in late November and are going to have dinner there again!

Early dinner so mostly empty, quiet, fast service, good sized portions. We walked around the inner harbor after and when we returned to our nearby parking there was quite a line of locals waiting for to go, so that tells you the locals like it.

The food and service was really good. There were 6 of us and we were all happy with our meals. The seafood raviolis were delicious but I felt that they were a little light on filling and we received 4 raviolis for $28. The salad was delicious.

Drooling gnocchi and chip salad were great, but the eggplant parm was terrible. Eggplant parm is a standby on many Italian menus, and
I’ve never had one before that was unappetizing. The eggplant rounds were tough and tasteless and almost devoid of cheese.

Just ok. Lackluster atmosphere, good service, very tired menu. The product was so-so. Veal piccata was good but sauce overwhelmed meat. Saltimboca was okay. Bolognase was bad as in it wasn’t bolognese sauce I asked if maybe they have wrong sauce…lacked any noticeable meat, milk or carrots. Think I was served spaghetti sauce. Wouldn’t return.

Bad service. I was disappointed in the manicotti which was a clump of cheese. No pasta shells. Highlight was the salad but the soup was salty. Probably won’t go back w so many other Italian restaurants nearby.

Overall a good dining experience. I didn't like the Fettuccine Alfredo, not enough cheese flavor, in my Tour of Italy. Salad and calamari were excellent. Everyone else loved their choices. My party of 5 dined sufficiently, with a bottle of Moscato di Asti, for under $200 including 18% tip.

This restaurant was probably good at one time but that was long gone with the unseasoned and ill prepared food. Fried calamari was frozen and unevenly cut, the arancini was also frozen and not made in house. It looked like fried mochi balls. The house salad was limp and damp. I ordered the seafood pasta and at $30 it should have been more than a mix of frozen subpar mini seafood mix in a bag that was slung together with overcooked pasta and bad white wine sauce. They obviously have lost passion for what they do and being a resident of this neighborhood, we do not plan to go back nor recommend it to any of our friends.

I wanted to love this historic Italian restaurant, but found that aside from the authentic Little Italy ambience and service from sweet nonas, the food was a little lacking. Perhaps it was just what we ordered- the gnocchi and the chicken piccata. The chicken was overcooked and over salted. Nice selection of Italian wines and fun playlist of old-times music. I'd give it another chance when in Baltimore and change my order. Seems like a very sweet, family run business.

We were vacationing in The Inner Harbor and saw the positive reviews on Open Table. Since we were within walking distance, thought we’d give it a try. Arrived 30 minutes early but it wasn’t a problem and we were seated immediately. The restaurant ambiance is charming and very clean, with socially-spaced tables. The service was attentive, filling water glasses without having to be asked. But it was the food that was the stand-out. We shared the mussels and the arancine. Delicious! My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the pescatore and linguini with white clams for our entrees. Huge portions, and after the appetizers and the large, complimentary house salad, we took home more than we ate!! Well-made cocktails, too. But please update the cocktail prices on the Open Table website.
