My wife and I are constantly lamenting the sad state of restaurants in Annapolis and I was surprised by the favorable reviews about this place on this board. Don't believe it. I should have known when I saw it was associated with Mangia Pizzeria in downtown Annapolis. The food at Pesce Grande, a new Italian place on West St. was mediocre at best. The Italian "tapas" idea is a welcome one but the food was just nothing special. The pizza in particular was awful. Service was fine and the space itself was very welcoming.The place was packed which just reaffirms my belief that a casual, not too expensive bistro type restaurant with inspired food would kill in Annapolis. Anyone else have any thoughts on the wasteland that is Annapolis dining?
