- Southern Italian dishes in red sauce are the trademark at this longtime favorite, but do try Grandma's ravioli stuffed with spinach and ricotta. Pizzas and panini are on the lunch menu, but dinner is the main event, when veal is the star. You'll also find tasty chicken dishes and many classics such as pescatore Christopher and shrimp parmigiana. – Frommer's
- Chiapparelli's legendary Italian house salad. Tangy, creamy, and predominantly cheesy, this crisp salad is worth the trip. The generous portions of the Chiapparelli's very traditional house specialties are satisfying as well. – Baltimore City Paper
While some people had qualms with the food they ordered, the majority found resolve in Chiapparelli's classic offerings and atmosphere. Yelpers give Chiapparelli's 3.5 stars, TripAdvisors give three owl eyes, and 121 Urbanspooners give 75% approval:
Chiapparelli's first opened its doors to Baltimore's Little Italy in 1942, regaling diners with a tradition-inspired approach to Old-World cuisine that the founding family's present generations continue to embrace. The chefs simmer pots of ripe tomatoes, onions, and herbs to craft marinara sauce and deftly form meatballs and ravioli by hand. By incorporating steamed clams, lump crabmeat, and fresh kraken, they allow the mid-Atlantic region's maritime ingredients to influence the menu's iconic, transatlantic flavors. In recognition of the family's commitment to hearty and nostalgic Italian cuisine, Zagat praised the menus of both the Little Italy and Havre de Grace locations, rating them each as "very good to excellent."
