Cousins Italian Deli brings warm Italian hospitality to the Cape Fear region with an extensive deli menu and special family-style meals that are sure to make visitors feel absolutely right at home. A top-rated Wilmington restaurant for years, Cousins has a number of talents under its belt, including catering, lunchtime or beach fare to go, and rich daily specials to appease any appetite.
The restaurant takes up a tiny corner of the Downtown area, with seasonal outdoor tables and a small line of interior tables that complement the exposed brick walls, and gives Cousins an inviting rustic atmosphere. Once on-site, patrons will find dozens of hot or cold subs and sandwiches to choose from, which utilize an array of Italian meats and specialties, like Genoa salami, Cappicola, Sopresata, and chicken or eggplant cutlets. There’s also a nice selection of fresh salads and desserts, although hungrier patrons will want to hold out for the daily specials, which can include anything from buttery chicken dishes to fresh Mediterranean wraps. The dinner fare is also a treat, and is available Friday and Saturday nights as a multi-course and family-style set menu.
Delicious anytime of the day, Cousins Italian Deli is a crave-worthy destination for everything from casual picnic fare to decadent Italian suppers.
