This place holds special memories for me as it's one of the first places I ever went to before starting at UNC-CH. It has only gotten better in the last decade! Service is spot-on fast (flashback to graduation weekend 2014 when everywhere was booked... their service was extremely prompt despite being full, and the food was delicious!). So many good... More

We returned again to 411 West because our Granddaughter insists that we take her there every time we come for a visit. We are never disappointed, and this place shows us what good taste our granddaughter, at age 10, has. Prepare yourselves for an excellent meal.

This is not your straight meatballs and pasta place. Diverse and delectable pasta dishes with vegetables, fish, and savory seasonings. Pastas / other main dishes include beautiful cuts of meat, chicken and seafood. There pizzettas are outstanding and they along with their bread are baked in brick ovens. One of our very favorites that we frequent!

We stopped in for a late dinner and found the restaurant still more than half full at that hour. We were greeted quickly and shown to a table for two by the window - so we were off to a good start. Our waitress was friendly, helpful and smart. We had a small pizza (thin crust, flavorful ingredients) and the... More

We ate here with a large group and ordered from a limited menu. I had a Caesar salad and lasagna. Both were delicious. The lasagna was fantastic - it seemed freshly made and had a nice savory and meaty flavor. Nice casual Italian atmosphere and very alive. Service was attentive and friendly. I would definitely eat here again.

Typical Italian meal with a good staff. Chicken marsala was very tasty, lemon pasta was exceptional. Parking next door and a patio opportunity. A good choice for an inexpensive dinner with family or friends

I've been eating at 411 for years and always enjoy my meal. The service is always good as well. My husband and I ate here recently for an evening out. I had one of their regular menu dishes, Shrimp Carbonara. I'm not a fan of scallions so I should have requested that they remove them because there were a lot.... More

411 has always been consistently good for us, and is one of our favorite nights out. Warm fresh bread and whipped butter start things off, and we always get the artichoke dip with seasoned pita - just outstanding. The Romaine wedge - hearts of romaine split in two with bacon, tomatoes, red pickled onions, scallions and a thin bleu cheese... More

My husband and I ended our week long 5th wedding anniversary dinner here and I must say it was as good as I remembered. Since moving to the Triangle I've enjoyed 518 West in Raleigh and this location both the same. It had been a few years since we'd been and we were definitely not disappointed. We realized we need...
