A Taste of Italy has New York roots and a prime location in the heart of Wilmington along College Road – a combination that has helped solidify this market’s reputation as one of the best delis in the Port City. Opened in 1994 by a pair of brothers from NYC, patrons will find a world of inspired flavors that bring the taste of traditional New York Italian delicatessens to the Cape Fear region.

The deli menu is extensive and is perfectly suited for take-out lunches, family style meals, big catered events, and meats and cheese to enjoy with gusto at home. Patrons who are craving a quick lunch or dinner can order one of the signature sandwiches or salads, which include a Philly cheese steak, Sabett Hot Smoked Sausage Wedge, and grilled or blackened shrimp or chicken salads. Hungrier patrons can feast on a wide selection of fresh pastas, like pasta primavera, shrimp scampi, or Pasta Carbanaro with bacon, onion and Alfredo, or dive into a hearty meatball, chicken or eggplant parm sandwich. There is also a selection of breakfast items, as well as plenty of meats, cheeses and other gourmet foods that are sold by the pound and can be utilized for any home-cooked Italian dish. Always fresh and surprising, A Taste of Italy is a prime spot for Italian fare lovers to quickly, and completely, appease an appetite.

Bijou Park

Bijou Park

Bijou Park is a hidden gem of a "blink and you'll miss it" attraction in Wilmington, and is a perfect spot for weary shoppers and strollers to find a quiet bench, stretch out their legs, and relax. Located in a rare gap in between downtown buildings on 225 N Front St, the park straddles the heart of Downtown Wilmington and a Riverfront parking area, but the section in between is quiet, peaceful, and buffered from the sound of the downtown traffic by the two tall but historic buildings on either side.

Wrightsville Beach Vacation Rentals

Wrightsville Beach Vacation Rentals

While Wrightsville Beach has a collection of hotels and motels, the primary type of accommodations in this region are vacation rentals. There are literally hundreds of vacation rentals in the town of Wrightsville Beach, which are scattered throughout the landscape and are found along the oceanfront, soundfront, and in between waterfront regions in the interior section of the island. Because of the sheer geography of this skinny barrier island, guests in vacation rentals will never be far from the town’s top attractions, which include the local beaches, the waterfront boasting, fishing, and paddling scenes, and the variety of shops and restaurants that are found throughout the area.
