Famiglia is an Italian-American restaurant in Greenville, NC. At Famiglia, we know it’s all about good food and time spent with family and friends. That’s why we offer a variety of tasty Italian-American cuisine as well as a full bar and catering services.

If you’re like us, then you enjoy a nice glass of wine with a big plate of pasta. Did you know that certain wines go best with certain types of food? Here are some of our favorite wine and pasta pairings that we hope you’ll enjoy:

  • Pasta dishes that feature a tomato sauce tend to go best with a red wine, as they tend to be equal in acidity. So, for dishes like our Seafood Fra Diavolo, chicken parmigiana, spaghetti with marinara, we’d recommend a glass of cabernet sauvignon or merlot.
  • For our pasta dishes that especially feature cheese, like our chicken spinach alfredo manicotti, we think a glass of crisp and light chardonnay always does the trick. 
  • For our creamy pasta dishes like fettucini alfredo, we also recommend a glass of chardonnay.
  • For pasta dishes that feature seafood, like our white clam sauce or our shrimp scampi, we think you can’t go wrong with dryer white wines like chardonnay and rose.

If you’d like to pair a glass of wine with one of our desserts to end the meal, then we’d suggest a glass of riesling to go with our cheesecake, a glass of champagne with our Tiramisu, and a glass of moscato to go with our cannolis.
