Oklahoma City Italian Restaurants - Talk About Spaghetti Westerns!



Oklahoma City is known for our steakhouses and barbeque restaurants, but Oklahoma City Italian Restaurants are also excellent.

Oklahoma City Italian Restaurants range from national chains such as the Olive Garden and Carino's Italian to many excellent local restaurants.

I'll focus on the best local Italian restaurants on this site.


Bellini's Ristorante & Grill

Bellini's is located in the Waterford complex at NW 63rd and Penn and has a great view of the Waterford Pond.

Sophabella's Chicago Grill

Sophabella's is one of my favorite Oklahoma City Italian restaurants.

Besides the regular Italian fare such as lasagna and ravioli, you can get wonderful Chicago-style pizza and excellent steaks such as the gorgonzola-stuffed filet.

The ambiance is perfect for a date night with my wife, with low lights, soothing jazz music and great food.

Sophabella's is a past winner of polls proclaiming it one of Oklahoma City's best Italian restaurants.

Most entrees are under $25.

Rococo Restaurant & Fine Wine

Rococo reminds me of the Italian restaurants that you find around Philadelphia and other East Coast cities.

It has an intimate, dimly lit atmosphere with a red and back color scheme and red and white table cloths. My favorite seating is the "gangster booths". A jazz band plays on the weekends.

The Italian food, steaks, and seafood are excellent. The crab cake appetizers are a "must try", with mostly large chunks of crab and a little breading. Chances are owner/chef Bruce Rinehart will stop by your table to make sure that everything is going well.

Most entrees are under $25.

Cafe 7

If you are looking for excellent Italian food that is also inexpensive, then you need to try Cafe 7.

Cafe 7 Oklahoma City

Every entree on the menu is $7 and they strive to serve it in 7 minutes or less.

There are 7 entrees per category, which include salads, sandwiches, pasta, and pizza. You walk in and fill out a color coded card based on the four categories and turn it in at the counter.

About 7 minutes later you are in 7th heaven munching on some of the best Italian food in OKC. I had the garlic, chicken, basil pizza and it was delicious. Cafe 7 only has about 20 tables, so lunch time can be a little crazy, but there is also some outside seating.

Most (all) entrees are under $10

The Wedge Pizzeria

If you are looking for the most unique pizza offerings in OKC, then you need to try The Wedge Pizzeria.

The produce used at The Wedge is bought from certified organic growers or is locally grown. You can sit inside and watch Chef John Gatewood and his brick oven or try the wonderful outside patio seating.

Hideaway Pizza

Hideaway Pizza was one of my favorite places to eat when I was going to Oklahoma State University at Stillwater, OK.

Now the original Hideaway Pizza has expanded into the Oklahoma City metro area with five locations. Hideaway pizzas come with an amazing choice of 11 meat toppings, 7 cheese and fruit toppings, and 15 veggie toppings.

Hideaway has won many Best Pizza in OKC polls. The fried mushrooms with marinara sauce or Hideaway ranch are a "must try". Hideaway also has some excellent baked pasta dishes and sandwiches.
