Quick please, dinner tonight in Hillsborough, NC

Hey all, stole a night away with my sweetie. Afraid to hit Durham because of the pre-game madness and thought a jaunt to Hillsborough might be fun. Any thoughts out there?

    RoseViolet: Here's a review I posted a few weeks ago about Panciuto:

    I've been to Pancuito once, and thought it was pretty good. My honest opinion is that I've been to comprable restaurants in Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill, and think you can find better in these areas. For Hillsborough, though, I think this place is a great addition. I had a crab and lentil salad, which was pretty good. I also had pasta with shrimp and calamari, which again was pretty good. Nothing I had was excellent. However, my date loved his food. He had a sort of ravioli, and really enjoyed it. Neither of us were thrilled with dessert- I had a chocolate polenta cake, and he had an apple crisp sort of thing. Our bill was $125, and for that, I can think of other places I'd rather go. However, it's worth trying if you're in the area. Hope this helps!

      I'm too late to give a recomendation, but I would love to hear a review of Panciuto. I haven't been there yet & I'm wondering if it's worth the price. No matter where you ended up, please give us a full report!
