As your tour of the town takes you from one old country to another, Carpaccio Tuscan Kitchen in Annapolis is the perfect next step in your journey to this city! Open every day of the week at 11 AM and closing at 10 PM on weeknights and 11 PM on weekends, this eatery holds a special spot in our hearts. Perfect for celebrations, special occasions, or for random Wednesday night dinners, every dish is perfectly prepared and authentically delicious! Oh, and their Limoncello Martinis serve dual purpose, as they taste like a dessert in a glass!
Located at 1 Park Place in Annapolis
The cobblestone streets outside Carpaccio and the stone walls in which it is housed may be pure Annapolis, but the inside is all Italy. Sleek, modern, and stylish, the upscale surroundings are loved by all who visit. Elegantly proportioned and designed with glass accents, a wall of wines hint at the pleasures you are about to imbibe. Outside, a small patio adorned with a fountain that could have come straight from the Piazza di Trevi offers a quiet place to enjoy your pasta on a cool summer night. As you sit at your table sipping on your favorite cabernet, the sight (and scent) of meals going to other tables may make you salivate more than a little, but you can rest assured your dream meal will be out in just a minute!
The Menu of Carpaccio Tuscan Kitchen
There are no wrong choices on the Carpaccio Tuscan Kitchen menu, just famously delicious options. Start with the Oysters Rockefeller—just a plateful to stimulate your appetite—and prepare for an explosion of flavor. As you peruse the menu, you’ll discover a large selection of expertly prepared dishes. From appetizers of grilled calamari to salads filled with locally sourced vegetables and classic main dishes you’ve loved all your life, these dishes never fail to please.
Offering pizza created with hand tossed crusts and baked in brick ovens, Italian sensations such as Risotto Pescatore and Pappardelle Bolognese, and a choice of perfectly prepared chicken, veal, and seafood meals, the most difficult part of the evening will be deciding on just one dish! Side dishes that include roasted brussel sprouts, truffle mac & cheese, and creamy polenta with shaved parmigiana will bring guests a new appreciation for a part of the meal they probably didn’t pay much attention to before this. Carpaccio Tuscan Kitchen in Annapolis has new ways to create classic dishes and you won’t miss the old ways at all!
Building Up an Appetite
The dishes served at Carpaccio are hearty and delicious, making you wonder if you will be able to clear your plate. Leftovers reheated in our fully equipped kitchens are certainly a delicious bonus to your stay, but if you are seeking ways to build up your appetite before you enter the doors to culinary heaven, well, we have more than a few suggestions!
First and foremost, we suggest that you get out and walk! The fresh air and views of the Chesapeake Bay make walking in Annapolis one of our favorite past times, especially when our journey leads us to City Dock. City Dock is the hub of our bayside town, offering opportunities to watch the boats drift in and out of the city limits. In the summer, this is where families gather, enjoying ice cream cones from Storm Brothers Ice Cream Factory, take pictures with life size bronze statues, or simply browse the shops nestled along the roads. In winter, cooler weather has our thoughts turning to the gourmet hot chocolate offered by Kilwin’s Chocolate and Ice Cream, located at 128 Main Street. And although Main Street is about 5 minutes away from City Dock, it is definitely worth the journey! And because you cannot go far in Annapolis without running across a historic landmark, the life size bronze statue we were talking about earlier? It is actually a rendition of Alex Haley reading his classic book Roots to a group of thoroughly engrossed youngsters! Have your children slip in between the statues and your annual Christmas card photo is handled for this year as you take shots both candid and poised at the Kunte Kinte-Alex Haley Memorial!
Fun for the Adults
After a huge meal at Carpaccio Tuscan Kitchen, traveling adults may not be willing to head back to the comfort of their At Home Annapolis vacation harbor, and because Fado, Irish Pub is basically right next door, you will not have far to go to have some fun! Sip a pint or two of any of their domestic or international brews as you soak in the authentic Irish atmosphere in a space where everything was designed and built back in the old country. During winter nights, a seat by the roaring fire is a premium, but there are no bad seats in Fado, just some spots that are warmer than others!
La Vita Bella
When you’ve folded your napkin neatly in your empty plate, taken your last sip of your Limoncello Martini, and prepare to head home to your At Home Annapolis vacation escape, you will truly know you are living the most beautiful life of all!
