Dalesio's, 829 Eastern Ave., Little Italy, 539-1965. The initial charm of Dalesio's small dining room faded somewhat as the evening progressed. The service diminished as the crowd grew. The food, which was nicely presented and generally good, was just enough overpriced to give us pause. No one item was out of sight, but the cumulative effect takes Dalesio's off the list of restaurants people can go to on the spur of the moment. $$$expensive. (Last visited 4/91.)

LYNN WILLIAMS Sushi Cafe, 1640 Thames St., 732-3570. The Sushi Cafe is just a five-table hole-in-the-wall, really -- albeit a fresh, cute one -- but its sushi menu is more extensive than many larger restaurants'. The bounty ranges from such ambrosia as the "many fish roll" to dangerous offerings such as the killer-spicy "nasty roll." The cafe offers a sushi club where, for a yearly fee, you can enjoy a discount on each feast. $$moderate. (Last visited 4/91.)

JANICE BAKER Fiori, 100 Painters Mill Road, Owings Mills, 363-3131. One has to feel sympathy with a structure that dates to 1767. Old, wide-board floors, stair railings and fireplaces influence the atmosphere. Service is courteous; food is Continental and Italian fitted to American tastes, with an emphasis on pastas and seafood. Recommended: a lobster crepe special, a simple grilled tuna, tournedos Madagascar and a peppery chicken Scarpariello. $$$expensive. (Last visited 3/91.)
