One of the benefits of living in Raleigh is the cuisine around here. This week I wanted to mention our spot for a pizza and more over at Vic’s Ristorante Italiano. During the summer, there are usually some free concerts downtown that we like to check out. Vic is right by one of the popular spots for them, so it’s been a favorite of ours for great food.
Vic’s is located right off of Moore Square by the art museum (which a great place to visit on First Fridays).
I like lunch menu- besides a break in price I also enjoy relaxing a bit before the crowd comes for the evening. This is a great place for New York style pizza, two slices and a salad and I’m done. We also have been known to split whole pizzas just so we have something for dinner.
I also like their Portobello alla Baggio as an appetizer for dinner. Whenever we have friends in town and they want some Italian food, we often take them here for a casual meal. The price is right and the food is rich. We always have extra to take home when we grab a pasta dish, which I truly tastes even better the next day!
Their tiramisu is incredible. We usually split dessert when we go out, but this is just too good to share! We get our own tiramisu – it’s so light and delicious.
