Made a reservation for 6 and was told no way you can come after 6:15. Place was empty except for one table. No one there until around 7:00.
The wait staff seemed to be more interested in talking than waiting a table. We had to ask to order a cocktail. The menu was nice but VERY limited. The waiter we had lacked basic knowledge on what was there.
Over priced and poor service translate to a slow death. AVOID!

We live within walking distance and have been regulars since it opened. It has just kept getting better and better. The ever changing menu filled with locally sourced ingredients is always interesting and occasionally challenging (that's good), When was the last time you had a dessert with berries picked from two blocks away - in the historic district? While the food is the highlight of dining at Panciuto, every part of the restaurant is clicking perfectly - from the reception to the bar to the wine list to the well trained wait staff.
Our mayor, Tom Stevens, frequently says "Hillsborough is a happinin' place." and Panciuto is one of the major factors making Hillsborough a destination for dining as well as a great place to live.

Frankly, there is no point spending your dollars anywhere else. This is superb dining in a relaxed atmosphere. The food is memorable; the staff superior. The entire evening will be most special. Definitely a very special place in the Triangle.

Panciuto is a wonderful dining experience! The food is excellent, atmosphere is refined but not stuffy. We enjoy coming here for special occasions, with out of town guests, etc.

Everything about Panciuto is excellent. Whenever we dine there the menu is interesting, locally sourced, and exquisitely prepared. It is one of our favorite restaurants in the Triangle.
