Italian Cuisine & Causal Sophistication in the Southport Corridor


Southern Italian cuisine coupled with neighborhood charm can be found at Coda di Volpe. The first collaboration between hospitality veterans Billy Lawless (Gage Hospitality Group), Ryan O’Donnell (Ballyhoo Hospitality) and Executive Chef Chris Thompson, Coda di Volpe (Italian translation of "tail of the fox") is named after the white grape variety that is indigenous to Italy's Campania region.

Chef Thompson brings his passion for the lesser-explored regions of Southern Italy to a dynamic menu comprised of seasonally-evolving handmade pasta dishes and house-cured meats. Using the restaurant's Stefano Ferrara wood-fire oven, Thompson crafts traditional VPN-certified Neapolitan pizzas served with authentic pizza shears to uphold the integrity and history of each pizza. Decadent desserts from Executive Pastry Chef Marjorie Easley complete Volpe's menu. Craft cocktails or a glass of wine from the award-winning wine list (one glass and the Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator).

Coda di Volpe's ambiance, mid-century decor and versatile seating options make this Southport Corridor gem a perfect destination. From group gatherings, showers and luncheons to cocktail parties and celebratory dinners, the long, cozy dining room is matched by a wrap-around bar where guests can sip on cocktails or from the award-winning wine list.
