I first ate at the King's Contrivance location and enjoyed the excellent culinary skills of Enrico and the rest of the staff. The Dorsey's Search location gives those of us on the north and east side of Howard county an opportunity to enjoy delicious Italian food. This is a true trattoria, wonderful food at reasonable prices. Actually, the food here is that of skillfully prepared home Italian cooking, far surpassing the cooking of even Baltimore's better Italian restaurants. The bruschetta, stuffed with tomatoes, cheese and herbs is a wonderful way to start the meal. The pasta dishes are excellent whether using red or white sauces. I once had a daily special, the veal with aurora suace, which combines skillful use ot tomatoes with elements of a cream sauce. The result surpassed even the best of Baltimore's Little Italy. Please go there and check it out for yourself. This place rules.
Pros: excellent food, reasonable prices, authenticItalianfood
