The food is terrific. We are huge fans of Chef P's pizza. If we are dining in, we order dinner and a pizza so we have leftovers for the next day. I highly recommend the Chef P's salad as well as the fettuccine Alfredo. Note to the newcomer--order at the counter and they will bring the food to you when... More

Good Italian meals for a good price. It's not fancy, in fact you order at the counter then they bring the food to your table. You get your own drinks at the sofa fountain, too. Great family restaurant. Very laid back and casual.

We had a large group (12 young, 10 parents) for lunch. They moved tables around so we could sit together. The food was delicious and despite the big crowd, we were served quickly and accurately. Always a great place to eat!

We've enjoyed eating at many of Chef Paolino's restaurants. The pizza is very good, love the garlic knots and good pasta dishes too.

I ordered an Italian Dish that included seafood, angel spaghetti i with Mariana sauce. The servings were enormous and delicious. I had to take the meal home and did not have to cook for four days! . I know I will return and try additional meals.

Food is mediocre, service is ok, but the owner is nasty. Far too many rules to follow to sit and eat in a local pizza joint. Have giftcards sitting and going to waste as we will not return.

Lovely family owned and managed restaurant. Never had a bad meal. Service is wonderful. On Wednesdays in Catonsville they have a raw bar. Great steamed shrimp.

We go so many times but have never reviewed. The place is always clean, good specials, great food, good variety and friendly service. You order first then self-seat which may present a problem for people that want total service. Great Saturday evening get together place. Lunch is usually very busy. ..a must do in Catonsville.
