Italian Restaurants in Murphy

Meal maestros at Fontana's Italian Bistro festoon New York–style pizzas, hearty pastas, and hot or cold subs with fresh ingredients imported from Italy. After poring over the menu, diners can order six garlic knots ($2.50) to jump-start appetites or tie off half a dozen ponytails. Carnivorous incisors slice into the 18-inch extra-large meat lover's stuffed pizza ($24.99) or the sicilian deep-dish pizza with cheese and sausage ($16.99), and veggie-leaning palates can opt for the flora-filled flavor of the eggplant parmigiana sub ($5.99). Forks twirl into creamy beds of linguine with white clam sauce ($7.99), and taste buds heat up with the shrimp diablo ($10.99), a dish spicier than a tabloid feature on Posh, Baby, and Scary.

Housemade pastas, hearty Italian entrees, and New York–style pizza sold by the slice populate the lengthy menu at Cafe Roma. In the kitchen, chefs prepare chicken, veal, and fresh seafood in a variety of ways, from shrimp scampi sautéed with garlic and lemon and tossed over linguini to veal parmigiana blanketed in mozzarella and tomato sauce. Kids can practice their cutlery skills with spaghetti and fettuccine alfredo or munch on a slice of “Grandma’s” pizza topped with marinara sauce and garlic. Unlike Cookie Monster’s intervention, meals conclude with rich desserts, such as tiramisu and cheesecake. Though Cafe Roma has a comfortable BYOB dining room, the eatery also offers take-out, delivery, and catering.

In 1969, Colonel Eure opened the first Mr. Gatti's Pizza in Austin. The small pizza shop—which received its moniker from his wife’s maiden name—focused on handcrafting pies using real cheese, yeast-risen dough, and a signature tangy sauce. Today, more than 40 years later, the Mr. Gatti’s Pizza has expanded into 140+ locations across 13 states. But despite the brand’s growth, its mission to make quality eats remains the same.

At one of Mr. Gatti’s appetizing outposts, patrons can build-their-own pie with fresh toppings, or select favorite pizzas such as the bacon double cheeseburger loaded with smoked provolone, beef, and bacon. Sides including four-cheese breadsticks and spicy chicken wings round out plates, and dessert pizzas topped with apples and streusel offer a sweet end to a savory meal. The restaurants also provide hot and cold buffet bars, allowing guests to sample every item on the menu without having to sneak into the kitchen.

Even for those who have eaten at Goodfella's countless times, it can be a struggle to decide on what to order. After all, these folks know firsthand how diverse and delicious the menu is. First there's the fresh pastas paired with lobster sauce, shrimp, veal, and eggplant. Then there's the four-cheese risotto, the 20-ounce lamb shanks, and the sandwiches that bring a sense of gourmet artisanship to a casual lunch.

But for many, the main draw at Goodfella's is and shall remain the hickory-fired pizzas. Though a 900-degree oven melts the cheese and seals in the crust's flavor, the pizzas start their path to perfection long before they meet the oven's brick surface. It all begins with fine flour imported from Italy. This is combined with water, sea salt, and yeast to form a dough that's then hand-tossed and dressed with a sauce made daily from San Marzano tomatoes. Next, of course, comes the homemade hand-pulled mozzarella. The final result is a pie that approaches high art?even guests who opt for the pasta will sometimes order a pizza to take home and hang over their mantle.
