Wimpy-skippys! They sound ridiculous, but they are pepperoni/spinach calzones that are better than any calzone you've every had. Also make good pizza and right near Pastiche for dessert. Get take-out and go sit on the fountain in the nearby square for a perfect Federal Hill experience.

A wide range of restaurants and outdoor cafes (mostly Italian). Everything from simple home meals (Angelo's) to handmade pasta, to fancy candlelit dinners. Venda Ravioli is a great market to check out! There is usually live music on weekend summer nights near the big fountain.
