Someone from Baltimore mentioned this place. It's about a 20 minutes cab ride from downtown/inner harbor, so away from tourist traps. But wow! It's well worth the trip. The ambiance is friendly, professional and down to earth. The staff really knows the menu options, including descriptions of ingredients and cocktail recipes. And the food is outstanding. I had the grilled... More

That pistachio pizza is one of those meals that just sticks with you. Weird sounding but ended up being really good.

Had dinner last night at Hersh's with Friends and we had so much fun. The wait staff was lovely and attentive. The food amazing - we had Caesar Salads, the duck pasta and the shrimp pasta - I had the kale salad and the delicious meatballs. The location of course in Federal Hill is always sketchy for parking but apparently... More

We had excellent pizzas at Hersh's. The mushroom one was lightly drizzled with some sort of balsamic finish, which really gave it some surprising zip. The crust was delightful. Good happy hour specials, two (smallish) beers for $5 from a good list. The drink list was interesting, but we didn't partake. The tiramisu for dessert was also excellent. The only... More

Hersh's pizza is somewhat similar to Homeslyce's pizza a block away, but the setting is much more desirable. Their thin crust pizza is great and they have a different flavor to please everyone. The gelato is also great so make sure you order at least one scoop.

They have great pizza... and much more! The peach crostini appetizer got us off to a great start. The caesar salad was easily shared among our party of four, and we all enjoyed the pasta with crabmeat, ravioli and margherita pizza. Each dish had just enough distinctive and significant flavors to keep it interesting. A word about parking -- if... More

Met 3 friends for drinks and dinner. Great bar! The bartenders are the real deal. They make cocktails by hand. No pre mixed stuff. We had great appetizers too. Pizza is outstanding as was the ravioli and the pasta. Once you go you'll be back.

If you are looking for great Italian food that isn't in Little Italy, this is an amazing place. The restaurant is listed as being in Federal Hill, but don't let that make you think that it is surrounded by bars and bros. Hersh's is tucked away near Riverside Park all the way at the end of Light Street. The atmosphere... More

Good location, not in the middle of the Federal Hill weekend chaos, Hersh's was a hidden neighborhood gem. My wife and I wanted to explore the non-pizza offerings. The anti pasti crispy string beans had a surprise but welcome kick. The gnocchis were house made and delicious. The cavatelli was al dente at its best, cooked perfectly with just the... More
