Italian Restaurants in Cornelius

Prosciutto's Pizzeria & Pub hosts an updated menu of New York?style pizza and Italian fare that earned the establishment Best Pizza and Best Italian Food. To complement the traditional pastas, white pizzas, and pies slathered in daily-made tomato sauce, a lengthy beer and wine list features craft beers, imported brews, and a wealth of red and white wines.

The family-friendly pub and pizzeria is divided in two: The kids side with video games and toys has seceded from an adult section that houses a nonsmoking bar lit by dangling icicle lights. Sports-casting TVs and athletic paraphernalia keep the vibe sporty for when the athletes return to claim their jerseys and balls. Thursday nights host cornhole tournaments outdoors on the patio.

In the kitchen at Mario’s Pizza, chefs heap cheese, steak, and sun-dried tomatoes onto oversize New York–style and sicilian pizza crusts. A white pizza covered in ricotta cheese, fresh garlic, and mozzarella reminds taste buds of eating a delicious snowman, and comes in sizes ranging from 10 inches to as large as 19 inches. Baked pasta and sandwiches, such as a philly steak or veal parmigiana, round out the menu.

Italy Cafe treats its guests to a smorgasbord of rich, flavorful Italian cuisine, from toasty paninis and subs, to bubbling pizzas and sauce-laden pastas. Diners sink their teeth into slices of buffalo-chicken and mozzarella-basil pies, or twirl forks into plates of eggplant parmigiana, carbonara, and puttanesca.
