Overview

Sip a strong espresso at an outdoor cafe, grab a quick pizza for lunch or dine in style at a gourmet Italian restaurant in this historic section of the city, also know as Little Italy. You'll know you have arrived by the huge arched gateway, with a bronzed pinecone, which marks the entry to the neighborhood.

Federal Hill is the equivalent of Boston's North End. The restaurants and the atmosphere are well worth the trip. We love Camille's and come here from Boston. Valet parking, and dining prices are cheaper than Boston and the food and service are excellent. It seems...More

We wandered around after having lunch and found a few interesting food stores-quality Italian groceries sometimes hard to find--and lovely bakeries. The area is mixed as far as cleanliness and maintenance--some obvious almost derelict stores-but the ones in business , for the most part, are...More

Good food, not much else. We expected there to be more shops in the area. It is probably hopping more in the summer, but it was dead there in March.
