” Love the food and staff! I moved to Sugar Mountain about a year ago and was introduced to this place by a local. I have been here once a week ever since! Headed there now! Better than the “competition” on their worst day! Thanks for making me feel at home! “

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 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 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 keep the freshness and quality of the food everyday. 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.

Use the take-out drive up window or come in and carry-out your meal. So, whether you dine in our restaurant or in your home, it can be said that “simply great food” is to be found in the mountains of North Carolina at the Italian Restaurant. Come break bread with us!
