The food was amazing, presentation beautiful, and the waitstaff was the perfect mix of friendly and attentive. Birroteca is now one of my favorite restaurants in Baltimore City.

The food was excellent as was the service. We sat outside which was perfect for our friend who wears hearing aids as the noise level was low.

Outstanding as usual, there's no reason to go there and NOT order the calamari ala planca, we get it everytime, it's amazing every time.

Had never been to the Baltimore location only the Harford county one. We loved the Harford county one but they have still yet to open since COVID. Food was great location was very nice and service was outstanding.

I love this restaurant and always have. The serving staff was understaffed this time, but I’m sure that won’t be a regular occurrence.

We have been to Birroteca a number of times, both pre- and post-Covid. Pre-COVID was definitely better, as the menu was more diverse and the service DEFINITELY more attentive and friendlier. Our two most recent visits were disappointing. The menu was trimmed, not the most important issue. Pasta was very good, but pizzas were bland and not up to standard. The service was Very Inattentive, less friendly. Indeed, the front end supervisor was curt and at times critical. We will revisit Birroteca, but not as a first choice.

Outstanding! We came during happy hour and took advantage of the drink specials. The pizza and Brussels sprouts were terrific and service was pleasant and efficient. There's a reason it's taken me a few times to secure a reservation. Definitely plan on returning!

Charcuterie didn’t have options but we we didn’t mind. Food was delicious, don’t forget to have the Italian Kit Kat bar. Ed was our server and he was fantastic and attentive. Pizzas were delicious, as always. Great to be back at Birroteca!

We had not been to Birroteca in many years. We realized that we were missing such a great little restaurant. Our serverRecommended that the portions are large enough to share entrées and salads. It was true.
Cocktail was pretty mediocre but our server made great wine. recommendation. My only criticism was that it was a little cool in temperature.

I had a lovely dinner with my family outside on a Saturday evening. The food was fabulous (particularly the Formagio pizza), as were the drinks. The service was excellent—one of our party is a wheelchair user, and the host let us know the best way to access the patio from the parking lot. So five stars for accessibility! Our only issue was that it got chilly when the sun went down. A few heaters outside would have helped. We'll be back!

This was our first time in Birroteca since the pandemic. We have always enjoyed it, but if anything they seem to have improved the quality, attentiveness and value since we were last there. The new kale salad, the Brussels sprouts, the Margherita pizza and the bar/beer selections were outstanding. The prices have either stabilized or, if this is possible, dropped slightly. Highly recommended.

We are so glad Birroteca opened back up! It's long been one of our favorites. One can't beat the brussels sprouts with black garlic aioli, and the pizza is always good. Even with a gluten free crust!

They were a little short staffed, but extremely nice. The food was amazing. We had the meatballs with ricotta, fried calamari, and a charcuterie board. It was a lovely lunch place for an early Mother's Day.

Not like it used to be. Menu choices and food was sub par. Our dinners were brought 10 minutes apart and we ordered pizzas. No utensils, plates or napkins and had to ask for them after appetizers came. Just a bad dining experience

I had a fantastic meal and felt very safe. While there were a few other patrons dining, Birrotecca's policies and practices made me comfortable. I particularly enjoyed the puttanesca pizza.

We have been stalking FB for when the restaurant was going to open up! We were thrilled to be back at Birroteca! Our “bubble” dined indoors and we had ample space from other patrons. Our server was incredible, made fabulous suggestions, and took amazing care of us! The food was on point! (And the lemon vodka wine spritzer was soooo good) We had Brussels, kale salad and thai chili wings to start. We sampled most of the entrees and everyone was pleased! The Italian Kit Kat dessert was gone in seconds! We are so thrilled to have Birroteca back on our reservations list! Cheers and bravo to bursting back on to the scene on point!
