"Liberty, Equality, Fraternity"

  The OSIA Little Italy Lodge #2286, in the heart of Baltimore's century-old Italian neighborhood, welcomes you to its home.      We invite you in - to immerse yourself in the old-world charm and rich cultural heritage of a thriving Italian community, to participate, no matter how far away you may be, in the timeless Italian traditions of hospitality and generosity, to find comfort and joy in discovering that, yes, family and good food and laughter can still be found in a too-often fragmented and melancholy world.    

  Explore our home, drop in often and celebrate life and family with us.


Ray Cossentino passed away March 26, 2015. At the time, he was at the Lodge carrying out his responsibilities with his exceptional brand of devotion, loyalty and selflessness that will never be matched. All of us will miss Ray enormously. May his fine soul rest in peace.
