Italian Restaurant

“Amazing Italian food! We always make the drive North to Corolla (about 20 minuntes) to enjoy an evening walking the shops after dinner. Their pizzas are top notch and we love the Local Arugula Salad. As with many local favorites, you want to get to dinner earlier than later to avoid long waits.”
