The first time I went there I was taken aback by the prices also, then my food arrived. The presentation was great, the taste was wonderful and the cost no longer was an issue. I had the stuffed (white chocolate and raspberries) waffles - you've got to try them - absolutely to die for. Everything I've tried there on subsequent visits was equally as good - no disappointments here.
Little Italy is good Italian food, but crowded on weekend evenings.
If you're interested in good crabcakes and are out near BWI try Timbuctu - great crabcakes.
