The Bodie Island Lighthouse, (pronounced "Body") is located just south of the town of Nags Head and Whalebone Junction, where Highway 158, Highway 64, and NC Highway 12 intersect. Visitors travelling towards Hatteras Island can't help but notice the black and white horizontal striped structure, peaking out over a line of dense cedar trees on the soundside.
Offering far more than hand-tossed pizza, this Italian eatery serves a range of delicious options from pasta to steak to salads to sandwiches to eat in or take out. The restaurant is spacious, with big booths and tasteful understated décor. Start with appetizers like buffalo wings or fried calamari. Main menu items include wraps, hot heroes, paninis, burgers and of course calzones. Chicken, steak and seafood ---and for vegetarians, eggplant ---dishes are also served up with an Italian flair. Pasta choices include Italian classics like lasagna, fettuccine Alfredo, penne with vodka sauce, baked ziti and cream scampi. A selection of beers include domestic, imports and microbrews, and specialty bar drinks are also served. Frozen smoothies are available for non-drinkers. More than 16 kinds of brick-oven baked New York-style pizza can be ordered, whether called in to pick up or enjoyed on the premises.
