Panciuto in Hillsborough, NC

Has anybody been to the new upscale Italian restaurant in Hillsborough, NC?
The name is Panciuto (Italian for pot belly). I'm curious to know what you guys think of it before I go.

  1. It is really very good. There are not too many choices - maybe 4-5 apps and 4-5 entrees (sometimes more) but they are all different and can probably satisfy whatever you are looking for. Atmosphere is elegant but also relaxed. Don't expect to eat and run - the food is not prepackaged so it takes a little longer to prepare, but I think it is well worth the time spent. It got a great review from Greg Cox at the N&O and I have heard others who have eaten there say good things as well. It isn't cheap - apps run 8-12 and entrees run 21-28, but you get what you pay for. Hope that helps. (Sorry this is so late in replying - was away and finally had time to check the site.) Hope you go or went and had a good time!

    1. I'll second that! We are actually going tonight my thrid time and they are fantastic. Pasta, bread and desserts all homade. Beats most Italian we have found around here.
