All in all, let me preface the review by saying Curt's is not a bad restaurant at all. The restaurant flies its flag as an Italian restaurant, and in large part, it holds true. The food did not blow me out of the water, even in comparison to some of the other Italian establishments in the Sandhills/RTP area. Three major... More

I decided to write this review but first would like to say that I think this place is just just not for me & I did not want to hurt but to hopefully help this business improve service. We were a party of 4 who went based on 1 members great experience there in the past month. On arriving the... More

Well, not quite, but both are close. We dined here on a Saturday night, on the recommendation of friends. Our initial impression was not good - shakers of Romano cheese and college-dining-hall salt and pepper shakers on black vinyl tablecloths - but we stayed and are very glad we did. Frank, our waiter, was friendly, articulate, and informative, even cautioning... More

We had the opportunity to take a Chef friend with 20+ years experience in 5 star Hotel/Inn from out of town to Curt's and he give major compliments to Curt. We started with the Calamari appetizer which is always excellent with a light batter adorned with fresh basil and homemade marinara gravy. He remarked the bread was very tasty and... More

You know when you walk in the door of a restaurant, that if it smells really really good, there's a great likelihood your food will taste great as well. This is true about Curt's Cucina. Walking in the door, you are seduced by the wonderful of great Italian cuisine. The calamari was abundant and cooked to perfect. The Saltimbocca was... More

With some of the best Italian food in the Sandhills it's no wonder the chef has been named one of the tops in the state and has been selected to compete on the Food Channels "Chopped" series. We had dinner there again last evening and it was excellent. Service is friendly and knowledgeable, prices are very moderate, the wine list... More

Plain no frills décor. Friendly staff and adequate wine list. Pretty good carbonara, but my wife's Tilapia was delivered in a sea of tomato sauce. Somewhere underneath was the fish. Worth another try after the US Open when prices come back down.

We stopped by on a whim and were treated to a delightful evening. I moved from a City that had multiple Italian restaurants and Curt's would be in the top 5 of the list. My lasagna was flavorful and creative, my dining companion had the chicken picata and it was great. Family friendly and has a nice buzz. Come early... More

OK...it's the US Open down here in the Pinehurst area. Thousands want to be feed! So do locals. What to do??? Call and make a reservation..like you do every week. End result...the best Italian food in the Sandhills....the best wait staff, hostess staff, bartenders and, of course, Chef Himself! Week after week we and our family and our friends have... More

Curt is the best chef in town. His national accolades are only surpassed by his dedication to the local community. Curt's food is always top notch. Watch out for his specials, he sprinkles in Italian masterpieces with old favorites from his past menus. The quality and consistency of his food is why he has the most loyal and fervent following...
