If you ask around for the best Italian deli in Baltimore, you will find two different types of people. People who are team Di Pasquales, and people who are team Trinacria. Di Pasquales is in Highlandtown and Trinacria is in Mount Vernon; I’ve already fallen in love with Di Pasquales but Mount Vernon is a little closer to home for me, so I made plans with a friend and I was hoping to fall in love with Trinacria.
When you enter Trinacria, the place is cluttered with Italian goodies that form a maze to get to the counter. Everything looked awesome, but it was a little bit of a sensory overload.
My friend started with a Caesar Salad which was good, but pretty unremarkable.
She also ordered Ravioli which was fresh pasta stuffed with ricotta cheese. This was your traditional ravioli, but it was delicious. We ended up picking up some stuff from the freezer case because we loved the pasta so much.
For my meal, I ordered the Eggplant Parmesan Sub, the picture doesn’t do it justice. The sandwich was massive. There was plenty of crispy eggplant, melted cheese, and tomato sauce. The sandwich was delicious.
