Welcome to The Italian Restaurant in Pineola, North Carolina

The Italian style of cooking is simply great food to be enjoyed and shared with family and friends.

Our name, The Italian Restaurant, is simple, and that is as it should be. We believe in fresh, premium ingredients prepared with great care to ensure ”simple, great food.”

We offer savory, tasty appetizers such as garlic bread, salads, cooked pastas, and hearty specialty dinners, along with an extensive variety of pizza and calzones with many different toppings. Try one of our specialty pizzas, such as The Veggie Lover, The Meat Lover, The Special, or even the White Hawaiian pizzas, made to order in small, medium, and large pizza sizes. Traditional Italian pizzas, calzones, and strombolis top the list of favorites, whether its a single-size or a giant-size family order. Draft, domestic, and imported bottled beer and a fine selection of new wines by glass or bottle are available with your meal.

All menu items are made with the very best products available on the market. Pizza dough, pizza sauce, Alfredo, and marinara sauces are prepared fresh daily in our kitchen, along with all of our pasta entrees, salads, and more, to maintain the freshness and quality of the food every day. From our table to your table. After your meal, try one of our delicious desserts, like our homemade tiramisu, cheesecake, chocolate triple cake, carrot cake, lemon cake, or spumoni Italian ice cream.
