    Dined on 4/23/2013
    Well run small restaurant with an exceptional selection of Italian dishes. I found the rabbit and mushroom with pasta to be outstanding. We also had an outstanding Alfredo pasta with chicken. The desert and wine selection is very good. Our choice of the terimisu was an e cells t choice. Service was exceptional. The only down side was the loud group of 6 next to us. When they left the evening was even more delightful.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 12/28/2012
    We have dined here twice, and both times, were not particularly impressed. The food is decent, but nothing to write home about. I ordered the special of the day which was chicken stuffed with prosciutto and provolone. The chicken tasted like it had been frozen. Our waitress was nice, but not very attendant; our drinks were empty for most of our meal.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 12/15/2012
    A group of us had dinner here prior to the showing of the Nutcracker. The service was ok, but quite a little bit on the slow side. The small plates were pretty good, but out of the 8 in our group only 1 of the entrees was good. Most of them were incredibly watery and of fairly poor quality. The table next to us got the Mac and Cheese and that looked awesome as well as the pork chop, which nobody in our group got. The one dish in our group that was pretty good were the meatballs (sans pasta). I would probably not go back given the quality and price.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 12/13/2012
    They were very busy with "pre-show" dinners, being located at The Nutcracker venue in the Stevens Center. They were also under-staffed. We had time and were patient and they were very nice, but the service was slow and we either did without (bread, coffee refils, etc). They seated us in a tight corner with no view and I requested to be moved. They did and the seats were great. Thank you!

    This was our family's second meal at Dioli's Trattoria. On both occasions the food was excellent. We enjoyed tomato mozzarella salads and traditional home-cooked Italian fare such as manicotti and mushroom risotto. Excellent! Service is friendly and efficient. Some families were seated on the small sidewalk outside. The restaurant is one block from the Benton Convention Center and adjacent to the Steven's Center, the NC School of the Arts auditorium.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 10/26/2012
    The food was very good, but the portions were not big enough, especially for a man. This is an Italian restaurant, and generally, the pasta at such a place would provide more of it. 2 medium size manicotti was hardly in keeping with their price. The antipasto plate was good, but very little on it, with the salami being the best part. Also, we've never been to an Italian restaurant that didn't put a basket of bread with an olive oil dip of some sort on the table. If we wanted bread, we would have had to order it with a charge. Ridiculous!! The food is very tasty, but they need to improve several areas of their offerings. Unless it changes, we will likely not go back again.

    Appetizers were good, but our two entries were poor. They make their own pasta. It was not aldente but tough, chewy, and clumpy. If this is how you make homemade pasta, then serve Brailla store bought pasta.

    I've eaten here several times and will go back. I can't say it blew me away, but its better than your typical restaurant in this genre. Its location makes it a first choice in this area. There are quite a few options for dinner in the area, and this one is worth checking out.

    We went here for the second time before a show at the theater next door. Wonderful food, EXCELLENT service... I wouldn't classify this as a child-friendly restaurant necessarily (for those adults looking for a night out without your kids it's great) but both times we've brought our 11 year old with us and it has been a great experience. We will definitely come back again!

    We thought the food was good. The appetizer proscuitto wrapped cheese/tomatoe was really bland, but mushroom risotto and totellini was really good. The waitress was professional and attentive. The only negative was that the female manager kept talking very loudly to another employee across the room... you could hear the staff discussions of the evening which we felt should be done in private. It made the ambience seem a lower scale. Overall, we would eat there again just hope the staff reads this and modifies that behavior.

    Not exactly sure how to reconcile the great reviews on here with my experience. The place is nice on the inside and the service was good. My issue was the food. From the appetizer to the entree, it all was sub par. The only thing I can tell you to do is try it yourself. Maybe I went on a night when the chef was having an off day.

    My friends greatly enjoyed their meals. My soup was wonderful but the manicotti was fairly bland. Service could have been better after we were seated. The hostess could not find my Open Table reservation but believed me and worked us in without much delay, even comping drinks while we waited. The server was obviously overworked.
