Tested Travel did not eat out often on this trip to the Outer Banks.  Our vacation rental home (Gates' Getaway) had a great kitchen and we mostly ate at home.  However, we did venture out one night and stumbled upon Josephine's Sicilian Kitchen.  We are sure glad we did!

The Location

Josephine's is tucked in the corner of a non-descript strip mall.  Don't let the modest location fool you. This place is a gem!

The Ambiance and Service

Josephine's is decorated in classic Italian-style decor, with muted lighting.  Cute, but not over the top.  The dining room is small and intimate.   The service staff was attentive and creative.  When they ran out of fresh bread, they brought us some lovely pizza bread as a substitute.

The Food

In a word?  Fantastic!  The menu changes each week.  On our visit, we particularly liked the limguini with clams, pizza, spaghetti with meatballs,  and the homemade stuffed grape leaves. We comlimented our meal with the house red wine. Our meals were tasty and fresh, and served with a smile.
