As other reviewers have shared, the food here is excellent. Considering the quality and unusual choices the casual ambiance was a bit of a surprise. It has a casual European flair (think wooden tables with no table cloths, minimal accessories) which adds to the noise...More

This is an excellent restaurant food-wise. We stopped going, however, because it is noisy and it’s difficult to have a conversation with your dining partners. It is very pricey. But if are a foodie, don’t mind noise, and don’t mind spending a lot of money...More

I'd heard this restaurant is unusual, and good, but I didn't realize HOW good it is. The vegetables are served in more, delicious ways than I could ever imagine. Their short ribs are to die for. Wines are excellent, service is even better, the the...More

Friends raved about Panciuto and wow, they were right! It was great. My husband and I just enjoyed a wonderful dinner. The setting is warm and intimate with lovely brick walls, a beautiful bar offering a variety of high end bourbon choices and a small,...More

Check out the chef on websites. This place is one of NC's best although it is hidden in a very unpretentious location. Come prepared to dine on the finest that NC has to offer. Locals consider it a bit "pricey", Gourmets consider it "a deal"....More
