Trinacria Cafe in Baltimore MD: Not a Destination, but Fine Lunch Joint for the Locals.

By Johntalbott

Trinacria Cafe in Baltimore is an offshoot of Trinacria Foods -  Italian Deli and Gourmet Grocery, which has been in business since 1908.  Why it took a century plus to figure out that Baltimorons wanted/needed an Italian eat-in/take-out joint on the Westside Downtown is a mystery; but it matters not, it's a fine addition to the city's lackluster restaurant opportunities.  Colette and i went on an impulse and a fine impulse it was.

She ordered a Greek Salad (1/2 of which she took home) and I had Trinacria's "Famous Sausage" on a margheritta (not really) "thin crust" pizza, of which I took home 1/4th. They have oodles of olives, wines, biscotti and gelati for sale and take out.

Our bill, with a bottle of Sangiovese and two espressi, was $35.37.

Go?  If from out of town or local and at the Walters - yes, it's a nice safe harbor for lunch.  As a destination for fine dinner dining, no.  The manageresse is terrific.
