Some of America’s favorite Italian restaurant menu options aren’t really from across the ocean at all. Arriving immigrants found different ingredients than in their home country. For example, America had an abundance of meat not found back in Italy. In exchange, Italians introduced new seasonings, like garlic, to Americans.

The blending of cultural cooking produced some amazing new dishes you won’t find in Italy. However, you will find many of these favorites in your local Italian restaurant. Typically, Americans rate these as their top preferred choices:
It’s one of America’s favorite comfort foods for good reasons. Gooey, melted cheese atop a tangy tomato sauce, with a crispy yet chewy crust. Who can resist?
With the abundance of meat in America, immigrants grew the size of the meatball and lowered the ratio of bread. Plus, both canned tomatoes and spaghetti were cheap and widely available. Soon, Italian cooks paired the three creating another favorite dish.
Another Italian favorite, Bruschetta, changed to garlic bread when olive oil wasn’t readily available. Butter was a suitable alternative and so garlic bread was born.
Eggplant parmigiana was a popular dish in Italy. Once again, the cheaper prices of meat in America allowed immigrants to substitute eggplant for veal and chicken.
Typically, Italian lasagna is an all-day affair of cooking. However, as the popularity of this dish spread, many cooks sought to quicken the process. The result is our Americanized version of layers of tomato meat sauce, noodles, and cheese.
While those may be the most popular dishes, you’ll often find many other items on an Italian restaurant menu. Typically, many Italian restaurants also serve submarine sandwiches, wings, calzones, and stromboli.
When brothers Mario, Vinny, and Tony started their business, they specialized in pizza -specifically NY style. People love our pizza so much that they return again and again to our restaurant. Over the years, we’ve added many more Italian menu items, but we still toss a great-tasting pie. Plus, we also offer cauliflower and gluten-free crusts as well as several specialty pies:
Our menu also includes the close relatives of pizza: calzone and stromboli. Made with pizza dough, we stuff both with cheese and your choice of topping. However, we serve the sauce for your calzone on the side while we bake the sauce into your stromboli.
Another great Italian/American invention is the submarine sandwich. Of course, we use only the freshest ingredients to create our hot and cold subs. Choose either an 8 or 12-inch sandwich and then your favorite way:
Furthermore, our menu also includes mouth-watering Italian appetizers. You can choose your favorite Italian flavors like meatballs, wings, garlic knots, and cheesy garlic bread. We also have salads for those times when you might like something a little lighter.
Finally, we also serve irresistible desserts. Cheesecake, cannoli, tiramisu, and limoncello mascarpone cake will complete your meal in a sweet way.
It’s easy to order from our Italian restaurant menu. You can view all our options by choosing your location from the drop-down menu at the top of the page. Below, we answer a few questions about our eateries.

Food has always been delicious and always on time each time I have ordered here. The pizza is amazing and the other options on the menu are very tasty as well! I definitely recommend trying Mario’s Pizza. -Joshua B. L. West Jefferson, NC
I love the convenience of their latest location. The food was delicious. I got the lunch special of a small sub, drink, and side. I had the Italian with a salad. Both were great. Their ranch dressing is so good as well as the Mario’s way topped sub. My son had the kid’s meatball sandwich with fries. He loves their meatballs. The fries are also delicious as well. Check their social media for deals. We got a free kid’s meal because my son was dressed up for Halloween. Barrie P. Winston-Salem, NC

Now that you’ve seen our great menu for all ages and tastes, let’s check out some fun stuff to do in Greensboro!
From a textile mill town to a vibrant sports and cultural metropolis, Greensboro is one of America’s most diverse cities. Whether you’re looking for excitement or connecting with nature, the city has both modern-day attractions and historic sites. Below we list a few great things to do.
If you’re a resident, you know the story of Nathaniel Greene and the battle with Cornwallis’s army in 1781. You can visit the site of the battle where the armies met at the Guilford Courthouse National Military Park. Other local historical sites include Blandwood, International Civil Rights Center & Museum, and the Greensboro History Museum.
Maybe you’d prefer tours covering other cultural aspects of Greensboro. Do you know the stories of ghosts who haunt several buildings in the city? Or perhaps you’d prefer a taste tour with visits to the city’s best restaurants and food shops.
Spending time at a museum offers people a fun way to learn. Museums can also inspire and help us connect with others. Aside from history exhibits, Greensboro has many museums offering a wide variety of interests. Some of the more popular destinations include the Science Center, Children’s Museum, Weatherspoon Art Museum, and the Richard Petty Museum.
Greensboro’s gardens offer a place to relax, enjoy nature, or take photos. With special plantings, display gardens, and sculptures, you can connect with nature to reduce stress and improve your mood. Sometimes, you’ll stumble across a wedding party since these are popular sites for photo shoots. Best of all, admission is free to these gardens:
Many people love to shop whether they’re buying for themselves or another person. Greensboro boasts some great stores to find everything you need from new to antique. One of the most popular shopping destinations is Friendly Center.
An outdoor shopping mall, Friendly Center has over 150 unique stores. For example, if you’re looking for unique women’s clothing, stop in Anthropologie. This store is a unique, full-lifestyle shopping destination carrying a large assortment of accessories, clothing, and home decor.
Afterward, visit a sweet shop for a sugary treat. For over 100 years, See’s Candies have been making and selling a variety of chocolates, lollipops, and brittle.
What about perfume? Scent Workshop is a studio where you can attend workshops to learn how to create custom candles, lotions, and perfumes. You can create a personal, signature smell that tells your story.
Of course, this is only a very small sampling of all the shops you can find at Friendly Center. You can view the complete listing of stores in the mall’s directory.
After spending a day out and about, who wants to go home and cook? However, if you’ve been out on a family excursion, eating out can really add up. Unless, you stop by Mario’s Pizza. To help your budget stretch further, we offer lunch and dinner specials as well as daily deals. Plus, we also have a kids’ menu with options at $5 or less.

Here at Mario’s Pizza, we use authentic Italian recipes to create delicious dishes, including our famous Brooklyn-style pizza. However, pizza is not your only option at our restaurants. We also serve a variety of other Italian dishes, including some of the best Stromboli near me (if we do say so ourselves!).
While many of our family recipes have roots that go back to Italy, Stromboli was actually created in the 1950s in Philadelphia by an Italian-American restaurateur named Nazzareno Romano. The original Stromboli contained ham, cheese, and peppers, along with sauce, wrapped inside pizza dough. Today’s version can contain any ingredients you would typically find as pizza toppings.
Stromboli are similar to another type of Italian entree: calzones. There are three main differences between Stromboli and calzones:
Calzones are from southern Italy and grew in popularity as a street food to eat on the go. With a calzone, you have the ingredients within a half-moon piece of dough, and in America at least the sauce is served on the side for dipping (though in Italy the sauce could be baked inside). On the other hand, Stromboli are more rectangular or roll-shaped, with the sauce always baked inside. Often, calzones have ricotta cheese while Stromboli do not, but exact ingredients are up to you.
Of course, both Stromboli and calzones come in different sizes. However, in many cases, people buy a Stromboli to share with their family (like a pizza) in slices and buy a calzone to eat themselves. It really depends on your appetite, though! Along with this delightful dish, we also serve the best calzone near me in the Triad.
We are, of course, a big fan of pizza! We wouldn’t be a top pizza restaurant here in North Carolina if we didn’t absolutely love our family recipe for delicious pies. However, there are a few reasons why you might want to order a Stromboli instead:
We encourage you to try both to see which you like better. Both pizza and Stromboli can hit the spot depending on your mood that day.
Stromboli, calzone, and pizza are just three of the many Italian menu options here at Mario’s. In addition, we serve up pasta entrees, subs, salads, and more for dine in or takeout in Winston-Salem, High Point, Greensboro, Clemmons, and the surrounding areas. Here are just a few:
We also have a selection of traditional Italian desserts, including tiramisu, cannoli, cheesecake, and limoncello mascarpone cake with white chocolate curls on top. So, if you need a sweet ending after trying the best Stromboli near me, we’ve got you covered!
