Panciuto is a very calm, sophisticated, low-key restaurant. They use locally sourced products, and the menu changes frequently. Special evening meals occur periodically throughout the year. The chef has been awarded culinary honors nationally. A must!

We recently ate at Panciuto to celebrate our son's birthday. He had requested it two years in a row! The food is farm to table and delicious. Service is excellent. The menu is small, so if you have restrictions, you should check the current menu on their website. The place is decorated beautifully, but is small. Make sure you call... More

We live in this little town and dinner at Panciuto is only for special occasions. This is probably our sixth or seventh dinner there and each one has been wonderful. Service, atmosphere, and food are all impeccable. The menu is small and sourced locally, so don't come expecting a variety of "out of season" ingredients. It's snug like a Paris... More

This review refers to the horrendous customer service at this place. Whenever I try to make a reservation, I have nearly had to nearly BEG to do it due to my being vegan, and in the past it has worked out, as I was guaranteed there would be something on the menu. I'm not even picky as to what that... More

My family (adults and children) went to this wonderful restaurant in Hillsborough to celebrate my birthday. The food was delicious and the wait staff well- trained. I highly recommend this little gem of a restaurant to anyone in or around or traveling through the Triangle area.

Panciuto is the one restaurant in Hillsborough that can hold its own against any other fine dining in the triangle.

Hard to believe that this jewel is found in the small town of Hillsborough! I'd expect quality of this nature in a much larger city. It felt like I had finally found a farm to table that matched that found in Philly or NY here at home. Everything from the eclectic ambiance to the menu reminded me of wonderful places... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal on Friday evening prior to "last Friday" celebrations in Hillsborough but there are a few things to know before you select Panciuto as your dining choice: (1) On Friday and Saturday nights, ordering (or at least paying for) an entree is mandatory, so if you're not very hungry and plan to just order an appetizer,...

We visited Pancuito on a Saturday night. Most tables were occupied, but the service was still prompt and friendly. I agree with some other reviewers that the choices are a bit limited, and they could do some more for vegetarians, but the summer plate appetizer was all veggies and very tasty. Both our entrees were fresh, delicious, and large enough... More
