Enjoy a Hearty Meal in Jessup’s Little Italy

Italian food on a plate.

About 22 minutes from our Jessup apartments, Little Italy is a small but mighty community where many families have lived for generations. Visitors enjoy an authentic Italian meal made from quality ingredients and old-world techniques. 

Eateries include:

DaMimmo Restaurant 

A local favorite since 1984, DaMimmo attracts famous diners, including actresses, opera singers, and sports stars. Their pictures adorn the walls, and all guests enjoy an experience they won’t find anywhere else. Chefs prepare dishes from every region in Italy. They make the meals to order from recipes passed down for generations. The portions are large and offerings include Tuscan onion soup, meat lasagna, and linguini alla primavera.  

Cafe Gia 

In the early 1950s, the Pasquale family boarded a famous luxury Italian liner headed to America. Their final destination was Little Italy, and they boast they haven’t moved 200 feet since. The family always gathered around the dinner table, and it was this tradition that led to the opening of Cafe Gia years later. It’s reminiscent of a Sicilian bistro and features friendly service and hand-painted colorful murals. Meals include cauliflower carbonara, bass risotto, and ricotta gnocchi with shrimp. 

Germano’s Piattini 

Cyd Wolf and Germano Fabiani sparked a renaissance in Little Italy when they opened Germano’s Piattini. The restaurant is found inside a 200-year-old building and features the original brick facade and a terrazzo brass inlaid floor. Sundays bring the best jazz jam sessions in Baltimore while Wednesdays feature open mic night. In the kitchen, chefs make meals from scratch. There’s something for everyone with choices including calamari fritti, red beet ravioli, and lasagna classica. 

These are just a few of the Italian restaurants near our brand-new apartments in Maryland. If you’re searching for a place to call home, please contact us. We’d love for you to see firsthand everything we have to offer.
