Sitti is part of the downtown renewal in Raleigh. It is an upscale restaurant in a old downtown building. The wait staff is very attentive. Reservations are needed on a Friday evening. The food was well presented. Three in my party enjoyed their food, me not so much . I asked for light seasoning, but there was so much pepper... More

Sitti is located in Downtown Raleigh on S. Wilmington Street. The inside of the restaurant is open so it makes it appear really big. There are some outside tables and a really big family table in the center on the restaurant. The menu has a lot of choices so everyone should be able to find something they'd like. I ha... More

We came to Sitti with 4 adults and 2 children during lunch time on a weekend. Instead of ordering everything at once, we started with appetizers, gauged our hunger, and then ordered a few entrees. Our server was extremely accommodating and patient, and kept the delicious pita bread coming. The kofta and shawarma we're both incredible, as was the hummus... More

Raleigh is a little short on Middle Eastern and Mediterranean restaurant offerings in general, but Sitti is a welcome addition when one tires of the usual burger or grill menus. Located downtown and situated diagonally to The Raleigh Times, Sitti offers a warm, modern upscale, yet very comfortable, dining experience where jeans or dressy casual attire are both at home...

Excellent Mediterranean food in a very classy atmosphere. This restaurant is very cool and modern. They do all of the classic Mediterranean dishes right - good kabobs, hummus, pita, and all the sides and dips that you love. It is owned by the same families that own many of Raleigh's best eateries - Raleigh Times, the Pit, etc. and it... More

After visiting NCSU, my daughter and I wanted to grab a quick bite to eat before our long drive back to NJ. She suggested this place and at first I was wary since I had never tried Lebanese food, but boy was I wrong! The service was great and the food was delicious! We came back a second time with...

I always enjoy my meal here. The atmosphere is great but, it can get a little loud at times. The sampler appetizer is a great way to get a taste of everything. Very good meal every time we visit.

Sitting is great. I always look forward to meals there. Just came back from lunch with a friend and yet again, we enjoyed a delicious meal.

Having just returned from a two week Mediterranean vacation, I wasn't sure that I would be impressed by this restaurant, but boy was I wrong! Their food is absolutely devine. The stuffed grape leaves are to die for and the garlic whip that they serve with their entrees...oh. my. god. This restaurant is trendy and a cool place to take... More
