Eating one's way through Little Italy

A lot of us on this board kind of overlook Baltimore's Little Italy. Yeah, we know it's there, and we discuss it once in a while, but we seldom really delve into it. This got me thinking about the possibility of eating my way through Little Italy, essentially going to every place once - at least the nominally Italian places.

Of course, such a task would take a good bit of time, and one wants to maximize the chance of pleasure along the way. Here's where you come in, fellow Hounds. I'm looking for the "gotta try" or "best dish in the house" for each restaurant in Little Italy. After all, if one wishes to try every place at least once, why not hit the high points at each?

I'm NOT looking for "Don't bother going to <wherever>, it's yucky and I hate it". Assume that going to <fill in the blank> is a given based on the rules. The object here is to steer anybody reading this thread toward the best thing to order at each place in Little Italy. Yeah, some will be better than others, but we're looking for the best at each place, no matter how far down on the totem pole they may be in comparison to other places.

And yes, I've already thought that one could do similar things in Greek Town or perhaps with the various Korean places in the area, or the Baltimore "Bars that serve food" genre, but one has to start somewhere. Maybe we could organize this into a sort of "Chow Tour" on a semi-periodic basis - pick a night of the week and do Italian the first week of each month, Korean the second, and so on.
