kid-friendly Little Italy restaurants

Can anyone recommend an excellent restaurant in Little Italy that is also toddler-friendly? It does not have to be upscale at all, but we'd like a place with authentic Italian food (my husband is from New England and misses real Italian food, like Il Panino in Boston). We'd be happy with a sit-down restaurant or a sandwich shop, if it's a great sandwich shop.
The last time we went to Baltimore we made reservations at Sabatino's (which sounded fairly kid-friendly from what I'd read about it), but apparently reservations meant little to them on a Saturday night. We got there 15 minutes before our reservation time, and after waiting for an hour, decided that we had to leave as we still didn't appear to be near the front of the group of people waiting to be seated. We ended up at a chain as we were desperate to feed our son and ourselves by that point.

Of course, we'll plan to go to Vaccaro's for dessert.

Thanks for your help! I'm new posting to this board, though I've read it on and off and found it very helpful in picking Restaurant Week places (on your recommendations, I'm going to Tosca with friends tomorrow).
