While most of the restaurant options around Raleigh/Durham Airport are chains, Babymoon Café is a nice alternative option near the airport hotels. They offer both inside and outside seating with quaint and relaxing feels. In the evenings, you can actually dine under the starlight with either option, it’s just that one is artificial starlight. I enjoyed the outdoor dining area that was bordered with plenty of nice vegetation, but you do have to be okay with the sound of an occasional plane to dine there. If you prefer the hermit lifestyle, then Babymoon Café has you covered with pickup and delivery options for hotel guests of the area.
Babymoon Café has a pretty good selection of Italian cuisine on their menu, and this includes appetizers, salads, sandwiches, calzones, pizza, pasta, other entrees, and dessert. They also provide bread and oil before your meal, so be sure to keep that in mind when ordering. They have a few different specialty pizzas, and I tried the margherita. I found my ten inch pizza to be a little doughy with too high of a crust-to-toppings ratio, but it’s likely that the sixteen variety improves upon that. The cheese was light in quantity but high on taste, and the sauce was okay. The basil actually stood out as pretty flavorful in bites that contained it.
I recommend Babymoon Café if you need a good Italian meal while staying by RDU. Otherwise, some of your options include Waffle House, Hooters, Cracker Barrel, KFC, and Taco Bell. If you are looking for pizza specifically, then Babymoon Café is an okay choice, but it might be worth looking into other options that may require a bit more of a drive.
