A Little Italy focacceria is one of the top 100 places to eat in the United States, according to the latest list from Yelp.

Joe Benny’s was named among the review website’s Top 100 Places to Eat for 2018. The eatery was the only restaurant in Maryland to make the list.

Over the past several years, Baltimore's pizza scene has blossomed, with the opening of new, great pizzerias all across the city. These restaurants tend to have a few things in common: reliance on fresh ingredients, great dough and sauces, and friendly atmospheres with a little more polish than the traditional pizza joint.

The list was compiled by Yelp based on restaurant ratings and their number of reviews, as well as quality and popularity.

Located at 313 S. High St., Joe Benny’s opened in 2014 serving Sicilian-style pizza, meatballs, paninis and other Italian sides and salads.
