We were in Pilot Mountain for the first time. We were visiting Pilot Mountain State Park. It was a pleasant relaxed meal. We had the vegetarian pizza. We had their thin crust - the crust had the perfect texture and flavor. It was loaded with vegetables and cheese. I would have liked there to be more flavor in the sauce... More

Both dishes that my wife and I had were good tasting and a the right price. A lot of dishes seemed to be hand made which is rare these days.

We almost didn't eat here because of the lack of cars in the parking lot. We drove down the street to Aunt Bea's, and asked a gentleman exiting what kind of food they had and if it was good. Then we asked him about Rigatoni's...he said the pizza was excellent so we went back to R on his suggestion (also... More

I decided to try this restaurant. My waitress was nice. The food was not good. The dessert was smaller then I expected and tasted like one of the ones you get at the super market in the frozen food case. The pizza was at best alright. The steak sandwich which I had was bland and unforgettable because of how un-tasty... More

The pizza is quite good, and reasonably priced. House salad is iceberg lettuce with a small amount of grated carrot, 4 half slices of cucumber, two wedges of tomato, and one olive. The ceasar salad is much better. The tomato sauce on all pasta dishes is straight from a can and applied heavily. Service is always excellent.

My wife and I were really disappointed with this place. The bread was obviously an unwarmed store bought loaf. The wine was flavorless. The "Tour of Italy" (a sampler of lasagna, ravioli, and stuffed shells) was awful; sauce straight from the can drenched everything, while the meat and pasta were of low quality. The service was decent, but overall you'd... More

My husband and I tried this out while staying in the area. Everything we ordered was disgusting. From "Italian bread", which was simply a loaf of plain bread, to tomato sauce that tasted like cheap Chef Boyardee, to a glass of wine with no flavor, I completely lost my appetite!

This eatery is on the main street of Pilot Mountain, NC. The wait staff are wonderful. The food is just plain good! All the locals eat here, so expect a wait. Don't forget to save room for homemade desserts!

If you like your Italian food with no herbs or garlic, this is your spot ! Tomato sauce seemed to be straight from the can, kids might be happy here.
