Harbor East: Chazz

Update – Chazz is now closed.

When you’re craving Italian food in Baltimore, the obvious place to look would be Little Italy. However a friend and I had already parked our cars in Harbor East because we were planning on eating someplace else that had a wait time of over an hour. My friend said she could go for pasta so I suggested Chazz which was around the corner from where we were.

Chazz Palminteri from the Sopranos owns Chazz and their menu focuses on “Bronx-style” pizza, and homemade Italian American dishes. This includes, freshly made pastas as well.


We were fortunately seated without a wait and after looking over the menu, decided to share the Homemade Fried Mozzarella Stack which came with a side of tomato sauce for dipping. These were a little on the greasy side (what else can you expect from a fried dish) but they were loaded with gooey cheese and it was delicious.

I’ve had the pizza at Chazz before and it’s not bad, but it’s not wonderful either so we both decided to stick with pasta dishes. My friend ordered the Spaghettoni All’Amatriciana. The dish contained guanciale, onions, tomato, and pecorino. The pasta was cooked well and very tender and the sauce was full of flavor.

For my main course, I ordered Spaghettoni Bolognese. This had the same delicious tender pasta as my friend but mine was topped with slow roasted meat sauce which was a combination of beef, veal and pork. This was perhaps one of the best bolognese sauces I have ever had.
