    My boyfriend and I went to Cucciolo for my birthday dinner, I was super excited to try their pasta as I am gluten free and do not get to eat at Italian restaurants very often… we ordered the house green salad, the White Ragu Tajarin(They were able to substitute my noodles for GF ones), the Linguine Alla Vongole and the Panna Cotta. Everything was DELICIOUS! We loved the atmosphere and the Espresso Martini that I ordered was one of the better ones I have had! We loved it and absolutely will be coming back! :)

    The wife and I went for the Valentine's pre fixe menu and we were not impressed. It was 4 courses for $80 which seemed reasonable if the food was great. The food was ok: fancy mozeralla balls instead of sticks, a simple salad followed by mediocre pasta dishes. The pasta was undercooked (past al dente) and the flavoring was uneven. My main course was a middling cut of steak that they cooked in pork grease I think. I ordered medium rare and got medium well or well. I think two pieces had pink in them. The ambience was nice and waiter was great. He made a couple mistakes but quickly fixed them. Overall I was disappointed and can not recommend it.

    This is the best pasta I have found so far in the Chapel Hill/Durham area. Thie sauces were flavorful, the pasta was fresh and al dente. The linguine alla vongole was outstanding as was the tiramisu. They could've put more pasta or less sauce in the amatriciana. The proportions were off. The mixed salad was also delicious, esp the shredded pecorino on top! The tender lettuce leaves and radicchio were also really nicely coated in a delicious and not too overwhelming dressing. Service was also great. This is a solid two thumbs up.
