Just had a great meal! We both had a side salad. It was a good portion and priced right. We had the NY style pizza. It was excellent! I think it is the best pizza in town. Our server, Maria, was great! She was engaging and had a great personality! They offer great food and excellent service at a good price.

We love italian bistro. We live 5 minutes away and pick up pizza quite often and enjoy dining inside as well.We ordered medium pizza with pepperoni, black olives and red onion last night for pick up. My husband was here at the time it was time to be ready. He noticed it had meat balls rsther than pepperoni and mentioned it and they would redo but of course it mean waiting and he decided to take it.home as was.Was disappointed not only in not ad ordered as the employee repeated the order and it was barely warm and we only are a 5 minute drive away. Guess it wad just an off night.

Review №7

I have been there twice and both times the food and staff were great. They also have a delicious gluten free pizza.

Review №8

Great pizza. Caesar salad is sessions large is enough for 2 to share. They sell three house made salad dressings. We've tried the caesar and the blue cheese both are worthy to purchase again and again.

Review №9

A wonderful Italian restaurant with great food exceptional service. I would refer them to any one who enjoys original Italian food. Tell them that Mike sent you. Ps. Try the spaghetti and meat balls.

Review №10

Pasta was great but the garlic knots were like a rock. They had to be hours or even a day old.

Review №11

One of the best places to eat in Wilmington area. Great food. Great portions. Best wait staff ever. Love the entire experience.

Review №12

Italian bistro is THE best pizza in Porter's neck! Some would argue slice of life but Italian bistro is better! Oh and their pasta is FIRE; ask about their weekday specials

Review №13

The food was outstanding, the service was impeccable. We really enjoyed our experience. We will definitely go back to this restaurant. Thank you Italian Bistro for an awesome experience

Review №14

Early Sunday evening we ordered two medium pizzas for delivery. Not sure who was making the pies ..... they were the awesome. We haven't ordered from the IB in a while because we could never get consistent food quality. Suggest you hang on to who ever made our pizzas. We will definitely be back to you in the near future.

Review №15

Best NY Style Pies in ILM, period. Great sauce & crust!

Review №16

It's official. Best pizza in Wilmington! Hot antipasto was also great and our server Maria was fantastic.

Review №17

We stopped here while traveling and were very pleased with our experience. The ambience inside is very warm and welcoming. The food was delicious and the service was great. The servers were very kind and attentive. If we pass through the area again in the future this place will be on our list to stop at for sure. Highly recommend.

We've been getting takeout from here every Monday for the last few months. The pizza rocks, staff is great, love the consistency they deliver with the quality of the pizza and the pricing is good. If you haven't tried Italian Bistro yet, give them a try!

I finally found a great Italian restaurant. It's always a challenge to find real authentic Italian food and this is it! Great atmosphere, wonderful music and the food is delicious! I highly recommend this quaint place, it feels like home!

Review №29

Best Pasta Fagioli I ever had! Their white pizza is excellent also.

Review №30

Had to take out only but the shrimp parmesan was really good big old pieces of shrimp can't give you a photo I've already eaten it all

Review №31

Great Dinner. Great service. Very vivid safe.

Review №32

So far we have only ordered takeout but both times, the food was phenomenal. Everything was hot and cooked perfectly. Even our leftovers were delicious the next day. We will definitely order from them again and I look forward to eating in as well! I'm so happy to have a delicious Italian place not far from our house.

Review №33

The hospitality could've been a little better

Review №34

We ordered the lasagna and stromboli.... WOW!! Incredible meal, friendly service and great prices. We will be back!

Review №35

Our food was slightly warm and tasted delicious. It took over an hour and 35 minutes after I placed the the order to get here. We are only 1.7 miles away. I could not put my correct address in delivery address for some reason. The address finder will not find it so we have manipulate to get the order to go through. We have had some awesome drivers in the past but our driver tonight did not make the grade. I was sorry that I added his tip in advance. We will still order in the future and hope for better service.

Review №36

This hidden gem is in Porters Neck. Great food and impeccable service. The entrees are excellent. My group had a variety of dishes. The pizza is wonderful also. My favorite Italian restaurant in the area.

Review №37

Quick, friendly service. Good food.

Review №38

Good food, nice selection. Friendly staff

Review №39

Shockingly awful service. I arrived shortly after five on a Thursday, to a mostly empty restaurant, one single table that was sat, so I understand the terrible strain on the restaurant's workforce at that time. I walked toward the register, where a half dozen employees were loudly shooting the breeze, none of which greeted me into their establishment. I began to browse a menu, standing 3 feet away from the cash register, of which all of the employees were playing behind. I looked at the menu for 10 minutes before sitting down at a table and another 10 minutes before a female eventually came to greet me. She brought a water then walked to the other side of the wall that runs down the center of the restaurant, and then loudly chatted up with whoever was there. For 15 minutes I watched the register area and could see into the kitchen, where to my surprise, I did actually see a middle aged gentleman doing something that resembled working. After that 15 minutes I walked out of the restaurant. Halfway to my car, the female server opened the front door and shouted at me "DID YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND?." Yes, I changed my mind, and will not be back. I feel sorry for the one guy working and having to deal with a staff like that.

I like the place and do use it fairly often, however, the food is generally of average taste... this is my opinion and recommend you try it yourself.

Review №41

BEST PIZZA IN WILMINGTON! My husband actually asked me to call them just to tell them how good it was! (we ordered take out). We've also dined in before on the patio and service was great. They are usually always busy when I order take out, but always take the time to help me right away. Hands down, our favorite. Taste is amazing and my kids love it too!

Review №42

Excellent. Recomend there food. The workers are the best.

Review №43

Pizza To Go. Excellent! Can't wait to go back and order different dishes off the menu. They look great. Sorry, no pictures.

Review №44

Good food fast service.

Review №45

Tasty pizza. Haven't really explored the menu beyond the pizza. Further rating to follow

Review №46

The food is homemade and everything we have tried was magnificent. The owners and staff are very pleasant and make you feel right at home.

Review №47

Tonight was our first, but certainly not our last visit. We had the most amazing meal. Our server Maria, was awesome!!! She had great suggestions. She knew the wine and food menu, backwards and forwards. Her bubbly personality, complimented her knowledge. We had a 4 course meal, and everything was spectacular. We are definitely going to become regulars.

Review №48

The Italian Bistro in Porter's Neck was fantastic. The quality of the food was top-notch and the staff was incredibly friendly. We went in at an incredibly busy time 5 p.m. write for the dinner rush. And while we did have to wait for our food it was completely understandable and the staff was very amenable. The sizes of pizza are very generous and their pasta is delicious. The portions for soup and salad are very small and are not Unlimited. Overall a very fantastic experience

Review №49

I love their chicken parm and pizza!

Review №50

The Pizza, Pasta, and salads are great and we love half price wine on Sunday nights. I am not one that likes to do these online reviews, but the Lasagna last night was amazing. The food here is always consistent and the wait staff is always friendly. Maria is awesome and always very accommodating. Great Food and Great Service!! See you on Sunday!

Review №51

We had excellent service from Sara and her quick reflexes saved my wife from chocking. She was very calm but confident in her actions. The food is always great and service outstanding! The bistro is a gem!

Review №52

Amazing Restaurant, chill vibe and literally the best wait staff in town. The manager, Kyle is a true leader and belongs in the service industry. Ginger, the guy whipping Pizzas up front is absolutely KILLING IT with the specialty pies, and Scott is an absolute prodigy in the realm of pasta dishes! TRY THE MARCO! I have never received anything but the highest quality food, fun, and professionalism from a single place. 10/10 would recommend for any occasion.

Review №53

Absolutely fantastic food. My wife had chicken parmesan, I had manicotti, and we both had a ceasar salad. The staff was terrific and attentive, kudos in particular to Maria and Adam. A good selection of beer, at very very reasonable prices! Great local business to support!!

Review №54

Very good pizza and alfredo

Review №55

Very fresh and awesome!

Review №56

My preferred spot for tasty Italian food. I love snacking here. I will be back with my friends. Reminds me of a place in New York I liked to visit.

Review №57

Go here all the time, past couple of times crust was like cardboard. So dissapointed!

Review №58

Small local Italian restaurant. The food is amazing. The people who work there are very nice and accommodating. Great food, great people. I highly recommend this place.

Review №59

Great little place for some seriously authentic Italian food (I had the spicy sausage pasta and my wife had the Jimmy) great pizza, great environment for the kiddos. We'll be back!

Review №60

Food was delicious and service was exceptional

Review №61

Awesome little quaint Italian eatery with delicious pizzas and pastas. We love ️ and get their Monday pizza special every week. It's always consistent and delicious as well as affordably priced. The staff are always super friendly and very accommodating. I definitely recommend this eatery! 5 stars

Review №62

Great food and staff , Maria and the other girls will take care of you

Review №63


Review №64

Service was slow. Excellent wine selection. Pizza pasta and great food. Very traditional Italian menu.

Review №65

Done with them. I had pizza there some time ago and it was good but little too expensive in my opinion. I have been back for slices to go about a half dozen times and each time the pizza is worse than the one before. Flavorless unless you get one topped with lots of stuff, but then still less than good. Today, a simple cheese pie was so bland I couldn't taste it. Oh, and the last three times I have been there, flies were in the case where they keep the already made pizza.

Review №66

Very good food, good prices, good service

Review №67

Great food. Friendly waitpeople. Reasonably priced. First rate Italiano cuisine. Pizza specials!!!!

Review №68

Wonderful food an service

Review №69

The food is great if you eat in. We've had multiple issues getting delivery. They either forget something or we get the wrong order. They don't even make it up to you, only offer you a refund on your NEXT order for the wrong item.

Review №70

I absolutely love their food.... but the service has sucked every single time I've been!

Review №71

This has been one of my favorite places for about 5 years. But as of tonight 1-6-19, I will not be back! Food is great but service is terrible and was asked to move to another table during our meal so they could seat more people. Although seating is first come. Well done losing a customer

Review №72

Wonderful food, exceptional service. Only complaint is I wish they would allow DoorDash to deliver to Hampstead!

Review №73

Very good food! Place is smaller so if you have a large party might want to plan ahead on it. Prices are very reasonable! Build your own pasta was fantastic! Going to try some pizza next time I go.

Review №74

Great food here and what I think are the best Stromboli's in town and possibly I've ever had!!

Review №75

Great food! Awesome staff!! They have gluten-free penne pasta!!

Review №76

I've only been here twice. The first time, I had chicken marsala. Delicious. Second time, I had a sandwich, (ham, salami, pepperoni, lettuce, tomato, sweet onion and balsamic vinaigrette on a tasty roll. Delicious. I will return to try something else, most definitely.

Review №77

Great Food! Very slow service because a catering order was placed just before our order. There were four of us. They need to do a better job in that regard.

Review №78

Always delicious food and great service.

Review №79

Great pizza and salad with everything homemade and fresh!

Review №80

Fantastic food! They even make there own cheese sticks. There are only a dozen tables, but well worth the wait!!

Review №81

Service has always been excellent. Food is good every time we've been here.

Review №82

Good food, good service

Review №83

Amazing! Waitress was so kind and knowledgeable. The alfredo sauce is literally the best I've ever had. I will be back!!!

Review №84

I stopped in to order a quick bite to go, and it was beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Italian Bistro . This staff was so friendly and the food was so good that even the dogs were let out going there to eat...see my pics! Definitely will go back!

Review №85

Great food and customer service.

Review №86

Being from NYC, my palate may be harder to please. The food is ok, depending on what you have. I cannot recommend the risotto dishes. Very oily. The staff is friendly!

Review №87

Very good food and service

Review №88

Food is delicious, always good. Huge portions and friendly service.

Review №89

This is more than a pizzaria! With build your own pasta dinners and salads, it gives a great variety of delicious choices!! Service is great too!!

Review №90

Food is always superb. House Merlot is very good and I don't really drink red wine. I usually get the manicotti. Occasionally a slice pizza and small salad. Husband usually gets the spaghetti and meatballs. We always bring home leftovers.

Review №91

Authentic and affordable

Review №92

Decent Italian food for a good price and portion size!!

Review №93

All of the guys are really cute.

Review №94

Best pizza in Wilmington

Review №95

Good food at a great price!

Review №96

Went here for the first time, trying something new with the missus... The food wasn't very good at all and the atmosphere was very closed in and kind of claustrophobic. There is a bathroom that juts out of one of the side walls right in the dinning area. There were also a lot of flies, I was able to kill two of them in my marinara dipping sauce by covering the top of the sauce bowl when they went to eat from it. Will never eat here again.

Review №97

Incomparable to any pizza joint in Wilmington. Worth the extra few miles outside of Wilmington. You won't find find fresh ingredients and homemade sausage like this anywhere close. In the mood for a pasta dish, try the Marco, an employee favorite. Pizza? Try the Chachi, no explanation needed, you'll come back for more, guaranteed.

Review №98

We honestly feel this is the best pizza in Wilmington. We have ordered pizza from here five times in two months and every single time it is delicious. I highly recommend this pizza.

Review №99

Our new fav pizza place and love there wings!!!! The chachi pizza and hot naked buffalo wings..yum yum
