If you know anything about NC State and Raleigh, then you've heard of Jimmy Valvano... but have you eaten at the eponymous restaurant? Located in the Sheraton building on Fayetteville street, the Jimmy V Osteria + Bar features the largest patio in Raleigh and serves an incredible pizza named after the legendary coach. The Jimmy V pizza is composed of house sauce, pepperoni, salami, cappicola, and mozzarella—a meat-lovers delight! Grab a seat at one of the outdoor granite-top tables and enjoy downtown fireside dining. To drink, we recommend the house-made limoncello (lemon rind soaked in Everclear for 8 days and mixed with simple syrup) as a sweet way to wash it all down! Beyond the warmth of the fire and the flavor of the food and drink, another perk is that 2.5% of the proceeds go straight to the V Foundation for cancer research.
