Viva l'Italiano, Outer Banks style! If you notice the pizza places from Corolla to Ocracoke, you could stop about every other mile or so to grab a slice! Of course, many of these places deliver, so you could also just stay at your house and enjoy a pie...or two...or three – an affordable way to feed a big group, for sure. Pizza is one way the Outer Banks spells Italian, but we also spell it with authentic dishes straight from the old country. With chef/owners who cook from generational recipes at Outer Banks Italian restaurants, you'll feel like you're sitting in a piazza! Of course, they make their own meat sauces and marinara, and you can tell the difference in the rich tastes. And, while they certainly include fresh, locally caught Outer Banks seafood in their dishes, if you're ready for a break from all the ocean's bounty, our Italian restaurants are a good option. All of them include fresh-made pizza on their menus -- but they go well beyond the pies. And you must leave room for their homemade desserts such as tiramisu, Amaretto biscotti or mascarpone with chocolate sauce. Several of these Outer Banks Italian restaurants are very popular, so calling for advance reservations is probably a smart idea, especially during the summer months.
