We will miss this place dearly. Thank you for many fabulous meals, Gnocco!! Xoxo
Amazing. I am convinced that Sam (bar manager) slew the gods of Olympus and stole their ambrosia. Chef Lavin's cooking was immaculate as always. If you hear any rumors of him moving to California, they are dirty lies. Even if he were to move, he shall be here in our hearts forever.
Absolutely phenomenal food. Every dish is creative and balanced, and every bite is packed with flavor and texture. Can’t wait to go again.
Food and service were fantastic. One of our favorite places to eat in Baltimore!
Shared appetizers were fabulous. Entrees were shared and passed around and we’re fabulous. 2 desserts for 4 people were shared and, yes, fabulous
Very creative menu fusing pasta with other fare. Wine list is interesting and fairly priced. A good value and a real find in highlandtown. And parking is a snap.
Just a wonderfully done meal -- food was superb, the service attentive but not obsequious, the place cozy and tasteful. Not a place for a boisterous get-together. We had 5 folks who work together and it was the ideal place.
We enjoyed the atmosphere and delicious cuisine! The waitress provided excellent recommendations and service!
This must be the restaurant that should be evaluated by the Micheline guide.
Staffs are very kind and well prepared.
The number of table is small so that the atmosphere is cozy.
The food is so neat and well organized.
I love this restaurant!!!
Our group tried several items on the menu and they were all delicious. Some of our favorites were the octopus, squid ink gnocchi and lamb shank. The service was prompt, friendly and attentive, we enjoyed a complimentary dessert as well. There were many other customers in the restaurant but we'd definitely go back and give them our business!
We truly enjoyed everything we had at Gnochetto! Can’t wait for my next trip to Baltimore so I can eat there again!
The Food was as good as any we ate in Florence Italy!
Love this place.
So delicious. Consistently.
My first time here for brunch, but won't be my last. I love this spot for dinner, or even just drinks, but it's a special treat for brunch too. I was meeting a friend with a very young infant, so I was anxious about space constraints, since it's such a small place, but they were very accommodating, and fortunately, there was room for us to spread out a bit. I would never expect that at dinner, but very much appreciated their gracious hospitality and gentle service. The food was exceptional, as always, but the service was stellar- unobtrusive, but present when needed. We really enjoyed our opportunity to catch up, and I will definitely be back. Thank you!
The experience is always such a positive one. From the moment you walk in you are transported into a foodie’s dream. The staff, service, ambiance are all above and beyond. The food is next level and every bite is thoughtfully prepared.
Sam took such great care of us: prepared excellent drinks, recommended fabulous dishes and respected our space while sharing stories about the restaurant and chef’s inspiration. Don’t miss out on this fantastic experience!
Very limited menu except lots of appetizers. Seems average for the cost.
The food was so unique and very delicious. Perfect portions.
First time and yes we will be back.
What a great find if you haven’t been make a reservation
You won’t regret it!
Fantastic food. A high quality restaurant done right. One thing: the ambiance feels a little more casual than the food. We had to speak louder than desired to hear one another at times. And a candle at the table felt a little off in a room so well lit.
Food was amazing, though I wasn't thrilled with the dessert. Service wasn't anything to write home about.
Very good! We've enjoyed their pastas and nice cocktails. Very attentive, informed servers.
Octopus app was a little chewy but our entrees (gnocchi and tagliatelle) were very good and you could tell the pasta was made in-house. I wasn't blown away by anything though. The menu is small, but that may help in keeping quality high. Decor was very nice inside for such an unassuming place outside, and the service was really good. They also have a unique wine menu with many Italian wines. Maybe my experience was spoiled by seeing so many good reviews - I was just expecting something more.
Always an amazing Brunch, Food and Experience! Sam, our bartender, host, server and general good will guy make this a place to return to.
We had a fantastic dinner this past Saturday night! Lots of small plate options that are very creative and tasty. Well thought out wine list and a great selection by the glass. Our waitress has obviously worked here for a while! She was extremely knowledgeable about the ingredients and preparations of all of the dishes and the service was incredible.
Loved the food, service, and cocktails!
Shining light in a neighborhood that needs a great foodie restaurant. Creative drinks & menu highlighted by mushroom dishes (yum), nice veggies, & nice portion sizes.
This is a charming place with a tight, interesting menu that makes it easy to build a meal of dishes that are unique. We ate in the small back room which was cozy without being claustrophic. The server was the star as he directed us as to the number of dishes we would want and what were some particular specialties. The food delivery was timed perfectly and we were never rushed.
It was a first class experience and a good value.
Celebrating a big birthday—our waitress made it special with a great dessert and great service
This has been on our list of places to go for a while. Now I'm kicking myself that we waited so long to go. Food was great, unique and had good sized portions. Also, it came out super quick --- but enough time between courses. I'm not sure how they got it out so fast given that the restaurant seemed packed!! We tried 2 pastas and a few apps. The seafood apps were awesome (octopus was tender and the sauce and potatoes were great...and the seafood salad was big and super fresh tasting!). Also had a foie gras app that was very cool. They put it on top of a piece of carrot cake. The foie gras was perfect. The carrot cake was perfectly dense and moist...think a version of tres leches cake. Definitely the best carrot cake I have ever had.
The pastas (gnocchi and a burrata stuffed pasta) we're also great. The saffron gnocchi could have had a bit more saffron but was otherwise awesome. The sauces we're tasty and everything was cooked perfectly.
Interesting appetisers and a good selection of wines by the glass and beers. The roasted chestnut soup was a find, creamy with the crunch of a chopped pear garnish and drizzled with balsamic glaze. the seafood salad was outstanding: fresh, flavorful and generous. And the fried octopus-- wow! Only the pork cheeks failed to thrill: they needed a more flavorful sauce. I'd definitely go back. Service was attentative and thoughtful too
This place was lights out... amazing. We ordered the grilled octopus and oysters to start. For dinner we shared two large orders of the gnocchi and lamb ragu. The octopus was the star of the evening but all the other dishes weren’t too far behind. You’ll leave happy and belly’s full.
The service was very good and the ambiance was warm and inviting.
Super food and service
Willing to please
A definite and worth drive
Always exceptional. The fried olives are such a tasty starter. We also had the mozzarella and chicken liver mouse small plates. So very good! The pasta plates always outstanding.
Hidden gem - best restaurant in the city!
Wow! This is some of the best food I have had in a long time. Creative, interesting, flavorful. Also at very reasonable prices for what the quality. Also great wine list also at reasonable prices.
Few restaurants have achieved a limited menu with so many choices that I really wanted to try.
This is sort of an Italian restaurant,but probably not like any Italian restaurant you have been to. It is a small neighborhood restaurant that is world class.
Great place for a dining experience. Staff is very nice and restaurant is very intimate. We got small plates to try lots of things and all were very delicious.
We had a quiet dinner with an excellent server and the food was delicious.
7:30 on a Sunday, not peak time, so quiet and unhurried staff. Menu, primarily small plates, is on short side but balanced and varied with option of 1/2 portion for entrees. Nice wine selection again varied in price and region. Interior and furnishings are uninspired, not up to level of food offerings, but the latter is why you're there.
The food was elegant and elevated, but not pretentious. The atmosphere is simple, yet smart. Our server was pleasant and well educated. It wasn’t my first time at Gnocchetto and it won’t be the last.
