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.

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.

Freeman Park

Freeman Park

The northernmost coastal region of Carolina Beach is home to the Freeman Park Recreation Area, a stretch of shoreline that is well known to adventurous, beach-loving 4WD truck owners. Unlike other stretches of the barrier islands off the coast of Wilmington, this park is special because it is completely undeveloped, and allows beach driving to off-roaders who like to cruise along the sand.
