When a local restaurant is family owned and operated and has served its community for more than 30 years, you know it must be doing everything right. If you are craving Italian fare while in the Black Mountains NC area, head on over to My Father’s Pizza and Pasta. This special restaurant started on a journey to become a friendly, casual hangout for folks to enjoy a delicious Italian-inspired meal and a cold beverage. They soon became a popular spot among locals and visitors because word spread it was the place to go! They offered dishes using the highest quality ingredients, treated guests with the best customer service, and left folks wanting more. Their original location was just too small for their growing hot spot, so they moved a few years ago and are now located on Cherry Street to accommodate more guests.
The very minute you drive up to this family-friendly restaurant, you can tell you are going to have a fun, memorable experience. The decor is casual, inviting, and fun. You can either sit inside the restaurant in the dining area or sit at the bar. Or you can go outside on the patio and enjoy the extraordinary views of the Black Mountain and the Seven Sisters Mountain ranges in the distance. This is the perfect spot for a selfie or two.
Now that you’re settled in and ready to order, let’s explore the menu that includes everything your Italian cravings desire. Appetizers, salads, stromboli, hand-tossed gourmet pizza, hot oven subs, pasta, and desserts. But the star of the show is the hand-tossed gourmet pizza pies. There is something for everyone, every taste, and every craving. Here is a list of customer-favorite gourmet pies to give you an idea:
My Father’s Supreme
This is Dad’s favorite featuring pepperoni, ham, sausage, fresh mushrooms, green peppers, red onions, and black and green olives.
Aloha pineapple fans. This pie features ham, bacon, and sweet pineapple.
The Greek Pizza
The ultimate nod to Greek flavors including fresh spinach, kalamata olives, red onions, and tangy feta cheese sprinkled all over.
Manzo translated is Italian for beef, so this pie features the thinnest thinly sliced steak, sauteed onions, and mushrooms.
Italian Roasted Chicken
This is a white garlic pie with spinach, red onions, roasted red peppers, and savory Italian roasted chicken.
BBQ Chicken Pizza
This is a BBQ lover’s pizza dream come true. Instead of pizza sauce, barbecue sauce is the base and is covered with mozzarella, chicken, bacon, and red onion. Did someone say Yum!
Traditional Roma tomatoes, olive oil, and fresh basil make magical music together garlic is the base then topped with mozzarella and asiago cheeses.
Skinny Pig Pizza
This is for the bacon lovers in your life. Applewood smoked bacon, caramelized onions, and asiago cheese on an olive oil and garlic base is topped with fresh arugula and tangy balsamic vinegar.
Vegetarian Hippy Pig
This totally veggie pizza is made with Dad’s famous pie crust and topped with house-made shiitake bacon…far out!
Go one more flavorful step and go for, what they call Dad’s Drizzle finish. Add a drizzle of barbeque sauce, buffalo sauce, balsamic or cool ranch to your pizza for one more additional tasty layer of flavor. Salads are a perfect complement to a pizza or sub, or as a meal altogether. The salad selections feature homemade dressings, too created with the freshest ingredients. We suggest the zesty house dressing, an out-of-this-world vinaigrette with Dad’s secret blend of spices. The kid’s menu is complete with kid-approved portions of the top-rated items on the menu. Personal pizzas, spaghetti, manicotti, ravioli, and lasagne all feature My Father’s signature recipes with portions on a smaller scale.
