Roko Italian Cuisine is a “casual-upscale” Italian eatery just off of Military Cutoff Road that features fresh fare that’s infused with local ingredients. Overseen by Executive Chef Jadran Peros, diners can feast on an array of seafood, steak, pasta and salads that are a perfect blend of traditional and creatively inspired cuisine.

The dinner menu is separated into Antipasti, Zuppe e Insalate (or soup and salad), Pasta, Carne (meat), Pesce (fish), and Contorni (sides.) Each course is delicious and deserves to be sampled, starting with an appetizer of mussels with white wine garlic or marinara sauce, stuffed artichoke hearts, or traditionally prepared escargot. The pasta selection is extensive, and includes more unique delicacies like gnocchi, wild mushroom ravioli, and Penne Rustica with chicken, artichoke, roasted red pepper, asparagus, and a cream tomato sauce. The carne selection is just as impressive, with classics like chicken or veal Marsala, Florentine or piccata, and more unique selections like lamb chops and filet mignon with truffled mushroom ragout. The pesce selections will thrill any seafood lover, with lobster tails, grilled wild salmon, and flounder laced with prosciutto, and every patron should save room for a classic cocktail or ever-changing dessert. Indulgent and delicious, Roko Italian Cuisine is a fine destination for a taste of exemplary Italian cuisine.

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.

Henrietta III

Henrietta III

It's hard to miss the Henrietta III as she cruises along Downtown Wilmingtontowards the open waters of the Cape Fear River. As the largest cruise boat in North Carolina, and the state's only true stern wheel riverboat, the Henrietta III has become a staple of the downtown scene in Wilmington, adding to its historic charm and southern flair for fun.
