    I used to live up there and we went to Ciro's a lot. Right by the "lake". Pretty decent Italian. Is castaldi's still open? Food was mediocre but with the record heat we're getting this week. I kind of like the idea of dining on the water, even if it is mad-made.

      For standard sports bar/pub food, Flying Saucer is pretty good. Great beer selection.

      You could head up Statesville Road or 77N to exit 23 and go to Lupie's.

      Amalfi's on Univ. City Blvd is ok for pizza.

        Lava Bistro is pretty good -- I'm assuming it's still there as I haven't been there in quite a while. I know it's a chain, but I like Bravo in the Northlake Mall. If you care to go to Birkdale 15 minutes North, Dresslers is very good. Near there on 73 is Mickey and Mooch -- also good. We live pretty close to the University area and are always dismayed that the new restaurants all seem to head South.
