We feature traditional Italian ingredients and preparations—including a wood-fired oven—as well as produce and seafood sourced from local farmers and fishermen. Our menu is more in keeping with what you may find at a seaside café in Italy than what you would see at an American chain Italian restaurant.
Most of the wines on our list are Italian and show the wide range of styles produced in Italy, including some great values from less-familiar wine regions along with excellent examples of the great Italian varietals from the country’s most prestigious appellations. We have a full bar and a cocktail list containing a few classic cocktails as well as some re-imagined classics with a slight Italian twist.
One of North Carolina's "exceptional places to eat"
Our State Magazine
"Pescara is perfect. With Italian seaside cuisine and a rich wine list, guests can dine simply with tapas-style small plates or have a traditional multi-course meal. . . Do not miss this restaurant."
"The tantalizing menu, inspired by coastal Italian cuisine, includes house-made pasta and fresh local seafood such as yellowfin tuna, shrimp, lobster and clams. Pescara’s kitchen also boasts a wood oven that churns out succulent wood-fired flatbread, lamb and chicken."
