All that Sabatino's now has, is it's legendary name and decent salad dressing. The resteraunt has obviously lost what it once had and what once made it one of the top resteraunts in Baltimore. I recently went to Sabatino's anticipating a great meal and looking forward to eating the same high quality, gourmet food that I once had when I was young. I was highly disappointed with every part of the meal, from the appetizer to desert. Thankfully, other resteraunts in Baltimore's Little Italy stepped up to take the place of what Sabatino's once had.

Sabitinos's has past its prime. What was an excellent resturaunt, while its still good, has fallen to cliche. It's a great place to eat late at night but if out on the town in little italy......i would recomend somewhere else.

My wife's Braciole was fabulous and my Shrimp Scampi was wonderfully subtle. Scampi often reeks of garlic and drips with too much butter. This sauce was delicate and not the least bit oily. The cannoli was very good but I've had better desserts.

Pros: They care, we weren't rushed

Cons: It's BUSY, stairs

I was really disappointed in the meal served at Sabatino's last night. The atmosphere was wonderful, and everyone is very nice, and even the mozzarella and tomoato appetizer teases you into thinking the main course will be wonderful. What a let down. The vodka sauce was too thick and was just pasted on what had to be a pound of rigatoni. (Not that there is anything wrong with making sure people are full when they leave, but a huge portion like that usually suggests lesser quality food). And the veal was overcooked, leaving the lightly breaded coating to resemble chicken fried steak. We looked forward to better things, and were very disappointed in the so-called authentic italian food served. The only reason I will remember this restaurant is the stomach ache that remains the next day. Overpriced and overcooked.

Pros: Ambience, Mozzarella and tomato, location

Cons: Annoying valet parker, food, price

.

I ate at Sabatino's last night and it was quite possibly the worst Italian food I have ever had. The veal tasted like chicken fried steak and the pasta could have come out of the frozen section in the super market. For the price of this meal, I expected to eat something that tasted a little better than shoney's. The mozzarella and tomato appetizer was actually very good, but it stops there. I would definitely not recommend this restaurant to anyone that knows what good italian food tastes like.

Cons: expensive, food was awful

Everyone in my party was very impressed with their food. This is "drop your fork" good Italian food. And everyone was so stuffed that they had to take a doggie bag home. Oh, did I mention that we got the 1/2 sized lunch portions? If you want great Italian food, choose Sabatino's.

As soon as you walk in, you just think to your self, why me? The staff is not only dum, but rude aswell. The Italian food you buy at your local market is five times better then the slop they call your entre'. If you want to sabotage a business meeting, take your clients here.

Cons: tooo big, old and dilapidated, surviving on memories

I have been going to this resturant since I was a child. It is by far my favourite resturant and will always be. the food and service is excellent. The prices are well worth it!

Several years ago, dear friends Josie & Reds, who have been going to Sabs for over 40 years, took me along and introduced me to Vince, Phil, Baron, Peaches (or Peachy to some) and the rest of the gang that makes up the Sabs family. I was immediately "adopted" into the fold and have been a loyal fan ever since. I take visiting friends from NYC and they always look forward to the welcome they receive - even at 3am. PS: the food is great, too!

Very romantic, quaint, and delicious food and atmosphere. A true Italian setting of food and ambience.

I was downtown with my family today for one last fling before school starts. We walked over from Port Discover (on their recommendation) for lunch. We were seated promptly, treated like family, and had a WONDERFUL lunch. The waitress was kind enough to suggest half orders and it's a good thing. I can't imagine how anyone could possibly eat a whole order of anything here based on the size of the half orders. The ravioli were homemade - and it was obvious - they were delicious. My son had a multitude of food allergies and even during a busy, busy lunch, the chef came out to discuss his needs & cooked his lunch to our specifications. I was impressed beyond words. Thanks, Sabatino's, we'll be back soon!!!

Pros: accomodating, homemade pasta, felt like family

Sabatino's is by far the worst italian restaurant that I have dined at in Baltimore. The food tasted more like a microwave dinner than an authentic italian meal. Was the marinara sauce out of a jar? Please look elsewhere for the best italian food in Baltimore because Sabatino's is NOT it!!

Couldn't believe what I was reading. I NEVER write reviews, but felt I had to comment. Sabatino's is, without a doubt, a WONDERFUL place for Italian food "like grandma used to make"! I am no food critic, but I know a good meal when I've had one, and I've always had outstanding meals and service here. I always feel welcome and always love my dinner. Try the bookmaker, try the garlic bread, try the Baked Rigatoni, and don't forget a Cannoli for dessert.

From the minute I walked in the door until the valet brought my car back, I was impressed beyond words. The people were really nice, the server was great and the food was outstanding. Can't wait to go back again.

Pros: Great food, Valet Parking, Fun

Cons: a bit dark

Piles of gummy pasta laden with canned tomato puree ain't Italian food, folks. Do yourself a favor and try someplace like Sotto Sopra sometime. Places like Sabs can be fun and filling when you're trashed at 2am, but they shouldn't be confused with real Italian food.

I would not recommend this place to anyone. The rest was very dissappointing. It came with high praises from others but the food was extremely disappointing. I have gotten better Italian food and less expensive food at a pizza parlore. Avoid the veal at all costs, it is like rubber.

Had dinner here a few weeks ago. Met some of the nicest people ever. Our waitress (Peachy was her name, if you can believe it) was incredible. She was very efficient & kept us laughing all night. The food was really great too - just beware of the portions - they're huge! Peachy was even nice enough to tell us when she thought we were ordering too much food - we should have listened to her! Try the Clams Casino and the Veal Francaise a la Sabatino! That's what I had. Can't wait to eat here again.

My family and I have been visiting Sabatino's for years. The food is ALWAYS delicious! Sometimes I visit because I get a craving for the House Salad and incredible salad-dressing! I recently arranged a client-dinner with Sabatino's. Again, the service and food were superb. 25 customers with enough food served for 40. The client is still talking about the experience. Great job Sabatino's!

I have eaten often at Sabatino's when visiting relatives in baltimore. I love the place and their food, but my favorite dish is: Veal alla francese and I keep ordering it.
Try it, you will like it, I am sure!
See you there.

Pros: Good food, Inexpensive, Welcoming

Cons: Too large portions

I was in town with a group of firefighters for a convention. A large group of us (about 40) had dinner at "Sabby's" Friday night. We were seated in our own room, had our choice of the full dinner menu (which is really big), and had the time of our lives! The service was friendly - and efficient! And the food.....FANTASTIC! This is the way Italian food should always be. It was one of the most satisfying dinners I've ever had. Wish I had a Sabatino's in my home town......I wonder if they'll consider a second location...........

I've eaten at Sabatino's many times over the last 20 years...I've always been greeted kindly by the same gentleman at the front door, I've been seated promptly, I've had excellent, friendly service, and always, ALWAYS, an incredible meal.
The portions are large, the prices are reasonable, the atmosphere is like a Sunday family dinner at my grandmother's house, and the food is simply delicious. This past Saturday was no exception. I'll be back again, as always, and hopefully soon!

Everytime, and I mean EVERYTIME I go here, it is a special treat. The food and service is fantastic. I really don't know how some of these other reviewers could have had a less than great time. I have been here with a large group and also with just my husband and it never fails my expectations. This is real Italian food, not "Spaghettio's" quality. Our favorite is the baked ziti and garlic bread. They also have one of my favorite waiters (Sean) that works there. He is top-notch and not bad to look at either!
