OUR STORY



Fourth Street N and 83rd Avenue N mark the culinary intersection of fine Italian cooking and Southern ingredients at north St. Petersburg’s most current, casual Italian eatery. 

With a polished yet well-worn vibe and a menu that features locally grown seasonal ingredients, Noble Crust turns traditional Italian dining into a whole new experience – an experience we call Deep South Italian. We’re proud to be known as one of the best Italian restaurants in St. Petersburg, Wesley Chapel and Tampa (Carrollwood). 

“Farm-fresh flavors to craft creative dishes make it difficult to taste where Italian ends and where Southern begins.”

Changing the menu with the seasons, our team combines 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 Italian restaurant 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.
