"Scotto's Cafe is our favorite Italian restaurant in the Havre de Grace - Bel Air area. We ordered our usual - my husband ordered the chicken parmesan, and I ordered the Napoli. We dined right before the Super Bowl, so the restaurant was rather empty. Considering fewer patrons in the restaurant than normal, the service was rather slow this particular evening. The shrimp in my dish were a little chewy, but the dry scallops were wonderful."

The Milton Inn, a 273 year old field-stone building in Northern Baltimore County,is counted among Maryland's historic treasures. It is believed that construction of the Inn began in 1740 and it has grown and changed over the years to become one of the premier country dining spots in the United States. The tradition of excellence has continued to grow under the current ownership Milton Fare Inc, who purchased the business in 1997. Executive Chef/Owner Brian Boston was named Chef of the Year by the Restaurant Association of Maryland in 2011.Chef Boston has also received many other awards including The Five Star Diamond Award by The Academy of Hospitality Sciences , The DiRoNA Award,and top ratings from Zagat. The Milton was named The Best restaurant in the Counties by The Baltimore Sun . Over the years , the Inn has engendered a legacy of romance and numerous couples have become engaged in its candlelit dining rooms and open air garden terrace. Many return year after year to celebrate!

"The ambience was great, the wait staff were wonderfully informative and attentive, and the food was absolutely delicious. For starters, I had the pan seared foie gras, and my husband had the cream of crab soup. I also had the warm baby spinach salad. My husband and I each ordered one of the specials for the evening. He had a trio of filet mignon, lobster tail, and vichyssoise. I ordered a rack of lamb (4 chops) with side dishes of pureed sweet potatoes and asparagus with hollandaise sause. We ended this gourmet feast by sharing a ramekin filled with apple cobbler, accompanied by a scoop of vanilla ice cream and homemade caramel sauce. Scrumptious!"
