I was excited to try this place as the hubby and I have toured Italy a few times and are in love with Italian food. It's a bit out of our way so even if we loved it we probably wouldn't visit often but I still have a mixed review. I think it was the owner that seated us immediately... More

This is a classy place to eat. The owner, Ralph, is authentically Italian and goes home to visit his mom in Italy almost every year. He is super nice too and really strives to put his all into his own restaurant. This place is like his little baby. He's got more pricey plates from chicken picatto to sandwiches like Philly...

Place can't keep help food is decent but service not good at all and super slow. Not bad if you take it to go though, really good grilled chicken salads and steak and cheese sub. Wish they would hire better people.

Ate here after church with the family. We eat here fairly regular and the service is generally friendly and fast. Food is good and prices are reasonable. I enjoy coming here.

Loved the pizza and the service was fantastic. We took home half of the pizza, and it was still great reheated the next day. Would definitely recommend!

Having grown up in the Northeast, finding my pizza and "common" Italian food is a priority for me now living in the Southeast. There are very few good places within a reasonable distance from my home, and "A taste of Italy" is average at best, and Slightly more expensive than average. The food here is almost good, the wait time... More

We've been going to this restaurant for 8+ years and keep going back. Raphael, the owner, is from Sicily and his cooking is wonderful! In addition to the traditional Italian entrees, he also has invented some of his own recipes. Never had a bad meal here. Of course, the pizza is as close to NYC pizza as I've found here... More

I ate here several times over a week long stay in this small town near Winston Salem. A Taste of Italy is located in a small strip shopping center with four other restaurants. The exterior is unpretentious, but I found the food delicious. The fettuccini in white clam sauce was truly exceptional. The menu offers pizza and a selection of... More

The food is not bad but the price of some of the dishes are. The service is is not bad at all. My recommendation would be spaghetti or a pizza.

My wife and I dropped in here on the way to Blowing Rock last week and we were both very pleased with our experience. We had an order or garlic knots, a cheese pizza and a ceaser and side salad. Both the salads were good and the pizza was excellent! The garlic knots were good but they need to bring... More
