Charlotte is quickly becoming one of the most diverse cities in America, with transplants coming from all over the country and immigrants coming from all over the world – especially from European countries.

We decided to put together a list of the top 10 European restaurants in Charlotte (based on Yelp reviews).

They are listed geographically from West to East:

#1 Rí Rá Irish Pub


This place has truly amazing fish and chips, and bangers and mash – and if the weather’s nice, make sure you sit outside on their epic patio right underneath the Hearst Tower.

#2 Big Ben British Pub

Another toss-up between Big Ben and Sir Edmond Halley’s, but Big Ben’s reviews were slightly better.

#3 Malabar – Spanish

THE MALABAR ROYAL PAELLA, A MUST HAVE!

Pappardelle Bolognese at Zinicola in Charlotte, NC. I love a good, hearty, bolognese pasta, and I almost always order it as a second entree when I’m at an Italian joint. I enjoy seeing the different ways bolognese is prepared, as the sauce, meat, pasta, and herbs & spices all vary from one place to another. I ordered Zinicola’s pappardelle bolognese along with my flounder entree, and it didn’t disappoint. A generous portion (you can order a smaller version if you’d like) of veal and beef topped the house-made pappardelle. The meat to pasta as well as the meat to sauce ratio was on point, and I loved the flavor and consistency of the tomato-based sauce – not too thick, yet not so thin that it was runny at all. Zinicola is a newer Italian restaurant in South Charlotte with a unique indoor/outdoor bar area, a diverse menu, and attentive, personal service.
