There are many (what I like to call) pseudo Italian restaurants all over Wilmington. They try to be authentic, but cannot. This place is not one of them. Growing up in an Italian family in NJ, I know Italian food and OC has some of the best the area has to offer. I have tried many dishes on the menu and have never been disappointed. Their pasta and sauces are delicious with the bolognese being one of the best I have ever tasted. Their pizza is hands down the best in Wilmington. It is not your "American Pizza Shop" type that you get in every other place in town. It is authentic....the true way pizza is served in Italy. And the desserts are HUGE, homemade and incredible! Order 1 to share and you will not be disappointed.
The atmosphere is an open bistro style reminiscent of the open European style bistros so if it is crowded it can be a bit noisy, but that is to be expected. The bar is large with a great variety of on tap beers, great wine and great bartenders. The staff here is always friendly, attentive and will go out of their way for you.
If you know and love Italian food, there is nowhere else you should go.
