“Good food, Loud & Boisterous Bar”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

We were cold and hungry and could see the wood burning oven so thought we'd try it. Very interesting menu with unique appetizers. We had a wonderful cheese ap with red peppers and drizzle of oil and balsamic. The steak salad is also very good. The atmosphere is fun and loud at the bar and even if you're not seated there you can hear it--not too bad though. Staff is attentive and friendly.

“Very Good Food”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

We had dinner here before a performance at Meymandi last week. They are located in the Sheraton on Fayetteville St; it's nice to have another restaurant within walking distance of the Performing Arts Center.

The ambiance is pretty casual with a semi-open kitchen. The food was very good, especially the 2 6 oz. meatballs and the Farmer's Chicken. Good selection of wines (iPad wine list). Service was professional and efficient, particularly for a new restaurant. Prices are certainly reasonable.

We will definitely be back.

“A Champion like its Namesake!!!”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

Simply Delicious!!! Great food, great people, great atmosphere. The standard at downtown Raleigh's Jimmy V's reflects the standard of its late, great namesake former NC STATE Coach Jimmy Valvano. It just feels good to be able to truly relax while dining, and have full attention of almost every staff person.

The Chef and cook staff are second to none. The restaurant & hotel management is second to none. The Bar is cool. The menu is truly amazing. They even have outdoor fire-pits and tower heaters patio-side for those who enjoy outdoors and cool temps. My goal is to try nearly every item!!! Recently open in/at the downtown Sheraton, it feels like its been there all along.

We ordered way too much food because we couldn't decide! We enjoyed everything we tried. We liked the outdoor seating area.

Reviewed November 18, 2013

My husband and I took a chance of visiting Jimmy V's Osteria on a Saturday afternoon (thinking it was going to be super busy on a Saturday) and to our suprise, we sat down right as we got in! The atmosphere was amazing,very different and stands out among the rest in Raleigh; the food and service was amazing PLUS $10 bottemless mimosas on Saturday....best deal in town. We will be back very soon.
