A small, old-school Italian restaurant in historic Federal Hill, the Old Canteen is a place for delicious food and pleasant ambiance at low prices. The Prix-Fix menu, for just a dollar or two more than the regular entrees, includes bread and butter, soup, salad or antipasto, your entee with a side dish, and dessert and coffee. The menu has a variety of chicken, veal, steak, seafood and pasta offerings. This is not a place for a quick meal, but one where dinner is to be savored with friends over the course of an evening. Expect to spend at least two hours here, but not because of poor service. The wait staff is intent on letting you enjoy your meal one course at a time.
