Radius Pizzeria

In the heart of charming downtown Hillsborough, sits a rustic, family-friendly pizzeria where pizza is only the beginning!  At Radius Pizzeria, husband-and-wife owners Mick & Kate and their dedicated team treat everyone like a guest in their home.  If you love the idea of ingredients grown right here in North Carolina, it doesn’t get more local than Radius, where most produce for their delicious plates are sourced from counties surrounding Hillsborough.  And believe us, you’ll taste the difference from the very first bite.



Just behind the restaurant, a patio extends with seating options under shady umbrellas and onto a grassy lawn with picnic tables, making a comfy spot for your four-legged friends to join you for a meal on the town!  Radius Pizzeria manages to strike an uncommon balance of approachable, gourmet cuisine in a laid-back atmosphere.  And though it’d be hard to turn down the allure of a sunny patio with views of the downtown happenings, Radius also has a foolproof system for takeout which sees guests ordering online and picking up their meal from temperature controlled units on the patio where hosts update a chalkboard to indicate whose meal is ready.



After an afternoon of strolling the shops and walking paths unique to Hillsborough, treat yourself to a specialty cocktail from the likes of refreshing Raspberry Martinis, summertime Palomas and delightful non-alcoholic options like the cleverly named “Marga-righta”.



If you’ve ever loved a truffle fry, you must try a basket from Radius served with garlic parmesan dipping sauce.  Although a forgivable offense when there’s a menu full of fantastic options, it might be a small crime to not partake in a signature pizza like the “Something Else” – topped with pesto, goat cheese, mozzarella, red onion, Italian sausage and spinach.  Then again, the fresh-made fettuccine and gnocchi pastas accompany your choice of decadent cream sauce, pesto or marinara, so you’ll instantly have reason to return if you can’t make up your mind! 


There’s something utterly welcoming about the red striped awning, orange bricks, and lush foliage that greet you at the door of Radius Pizzeria at 112 N. Churton St.  Weekly specials keep prices affordable and mix up off-menu selections so that there’s something new each time you dine.  Whether inside the cozy interior or outside on the sun-drenched patio, your trip to Radius Pizzeria is one you won’t soon forget.  Stop by Wednesday thru Friday from 11AM to 2PM and then from 4PM to 9PM.  Weekend hours run from 11AM to 9PM on Saturdays, and 8PM on Sundays.
