The Velleggia family first laid their roots in Little Italy in 1970, establishing a specialty grocery store where they began to sell a combination of imported and housemade Italian foods. Relying on time-tested traditions and natural ingredients, they continue their culinary venture in much the same manner today. The highlight at Casa di Pasta is the store's homemade and hand-cut pastas, from gnocchi and tortellini to 26 kinds of ravioli stuffed with the likes of butternut squash, lobster, or smoked mozzarella and mushroom. Premade pans of lasagna and frozen italian sausages round out the selection of homemade goods that customers can pick up for nightly dinners or to feed groups at parties. Coolers and shelves also brim with olive oils, vinegars, breads, sweets, and cheeses imported directly from the Old World.

Three menus, one location. That might be a lot for some restaurants to handle, but not for Alonso's. Both welcome guests during lunch and dinner with their own menus?with some overlap?and a third that takes care of hungry dwellers in the bar area. With all those options, It can be hard to make just one dining choice here. Alonso's dinner menu is home to American classics and Tex-Mex flair, with an emphasis on the kitchen's famous burgers and pasta dishes.
Each suite at the Brookshire Suites contains a bedroom and a separate living room furnished with a sofa and oversized desk, providing you with all the amenities that come with the territory and none of the tigers that guard it.

Type-A guests who like to multi-task will enjoy full access to Brookshire Suites' business center, high-speed Internet, long-distance calling, and complimentary Bible and phonebook (don't mix them up). You'll also be steps away from Harborplace, home to many of Baltimore's finest waterfront restaurants, attractions, and hotspots. Come the dawn, you can load up at the Cloud Club's full breakfast buffet before heading home.
