Amazing atmosphere and cuisine!!! We come every few months and are always impressed. This restaurant is sourced but local farms so the menu changes with season and availability.

You will never experience such extraordinary dishes as at Panciuto. From appetizer to dessert, everything is hand made only with the finest local farm products by the nationally renown Chef, Aaron Landmark. And the menu changes every night. The atmosphere is great (even when it's full, one can have a conversation with friends) and the service is superb.

Tucked in the cute downtown of the small and charming North Carolina town, with historic markers and art galleries within a few blocks, is this wonderful restaurant. The decor is nice and we found the wait staff friendly, attentive, and very much on top of things, including the ability to explain some pretty creative menu items. We began by ordering... More

Good food, locally sourced, imaginatively prepared and great service. I loved the cocktail menu, as well.

My wife and I have gone to Panciuto on her birthday for the past four years. Each year is a completely wonderful 'food experience' yet we see the same friendly faces. The chefs change their menu regularly, depending on what fresh items are available at the local markets. The waitstaff is long-standing which gives the feeling of familiarity and warmth.... More

One should not go to this restaurant with big expectations. In our case service was slow, waiter was not knowledgeable. The pasta dish was overdressed with a very fat pork meat The grilled radicchio was a barely wilted green large and long leaves difficult to handle.i sent the dish back. The dish was charged anyhow. High prices. I will no... More

This place easily the best in hillsborough. sophisticated fine dining. 4-5 stars on the food, moderately expensive but on a par with comparable paces in the triangle, excellent service.

A must-visit whenever I am in NC. I have been to Panciuto on two separate occasions over multiple years, and each visit has been memorable. The menu is constantly changing based on season and the availability of local ingredients, which means diners rarely see the same dish twice. On my last visit, I had an Italian noodle dish that was... More

We ate at Panciuto over a year ago and our meal was really not good. We sent back at least one of the dishes and the waitress agreed it was not as it should be. So it was with some trepidation that I decided to give Panciuto another try. Of course one bad meal doesn't and shouldn't make a restaurants... More

We dined at Pancuito recently with friends, and I would say it was one of the more disappointing dining experiences we have had to date. Perhaps we expected too much, with all the notice the restaurant and chef have gotten. The food was reasonably good (though not spectacular), the experience was not good. We arrived and were seated directly in... More
