My wife and I live in Wilmington on the south Side. We are 20 minutes from Kure Beach which is the southern most town on the Cape Fear Peninsula. It was early enough so we decided to go to Freddies a great Italian restaurant. When you go to an Italian restaurant your taste for the marinara sauce might be a little different than the owners. That is why I ordered a side of spaghetti with my Firehouse pork chop pizzaiola. It was absolutely superb. I even ordered some extra sauce for the pork chop. It is a very small restaurant so we got there around 6:30. There was a 30+ min wait. When we were seated the wait was already up to 2 hours. People know a good restaurant and always come back. The service was fantastic The staff was as friendly as could be. Even the hostess Hannah was very busy cleaning seating people all with a cute smile and a friendly attitude. Our waiter was Patrick aka Pasquale and he was very good and sincere.

We started off with a wonderful crab dip. It was melt in your mouth good. All in all an excellent spot whether you go there in tourist season or not. They don't take reservations so make sure you are there early and it's not raining because you will have to wait outside. I forgot to mention the salad dressing was out of this world. Go Hungry because you WILL HAVE PLENTY TO EAT!

Heidi was a great hostess and was very welcoming and Jessica made an excellent martini. The red sauce was too sweet and the calamari was very salty. The chicken fettuccine Alfredo was very tasty. The veal dishes at $27 a piece were just so-so along with the meatball with the spaghetti. With all the rave reviews for this restaurant we were disappointed with the food but atmosphere was excellent.

We put our name on the list around 5:45pm and were seated at 6:20pm. We had the crab dip as an appetizer and it was wonderful. The salad was delicious as always! We shared the Freddie's Spaghetti. They add $5 if you share, but even sharing a meal we couldn't finish it. The prices are a little more than when we had dinner here last year, but it's still well worth the money! Then service was impeccable! Never did we wait for a refill or even ask for one. The timing of the courses coming out was perfect. If you are vacationing anywhere on Pleasure Island or the Wilmington area you must try this restaurant! It's especially nice for a date night!
