Noble Crust Deep South Italian

Changing the menu with the seasons, our team combine farm-fresh flavors to craft creative dishes that make it difficult to taste where Italian ends and Southern begins.

With indoor and outdoor seating, social tables, an open kitchen that puts guests in the center of the action, and a bar that features crafted beers and drinks, and quality wines on tap, Noble Crust is the place to meet and dine. Our patio is designed for year-round enjoyment and invites our guests to make themselves at home. With a retractable roof, lounge furniture, and air conditioning and heaters, it’s the perfect spot to savor inspired cocktails, delectable small plates and unforgettable conversation.
