Italian
Ask any Italian-American what ‘gravy’ is, and they'll tell you it's the pasta sauce that their mothers and grandmothers cooked fresh every night. At Gravy Restaurant we take the same care, preparing our signature sauce every day using select tomatoes and locally grown herbs. The heart and soul poured into the preparation of traditional Italian-American dishes pairs with inspired modern twists and a focus on seasonal ingredients to define Gravy’s unique approach to this classic cuisine.

The food was good. They had an issue with another booking and asked us to move tables mid meal. They asked nicely, moved us quickly, comped us the appetiser and dessert, thanked us and thanked us again with gift cards. Given the situation they handled it very well.

The food was fine, but nothing special. I think it was better when Bella Monica was involved.

As always the Kale Caesar Salad was fantastic! The service was attentive, but not intrusive. The pasta carbonara was wonderful, and the Nutella cheesecake was a great finish to a wonderful meal!

Our food was delicious! The only reason I gave 4 stars was that the poor bartender was serving the whole restaurant! But he has a great attitude and we left him a good tip. They needed more servers...the food was delicious, we all got something different and everyone liked their dish!

My wife and I enjoyed our Valentine’s Day dinner at this perfectly sized establishment. The ambience was casual yet intimate. The service was spectacular, we were waited on kindly and generously. The prices were fair and we really got a bang for our buck! The variety of menu options was perfect. And the food was delicious! will return(:

great food. my boyfriends steak came out rare when he ordered medium so they made sure to remake the steak for him since it was their mistake. this was very kind, but resulted in us eating our valentine’s day dinner at different times

We went for Valentine’s Day and they were a well oiled machine. The traditional Bolognese sounds basic but you must order! It was hands down some of the best pasta you’ll eat, and I don’t say that lightly. My fiancé couldn’t keep his fork off my plate! So tasty, and all around great experience but to add the cherry on top it’s very well priced!

The salmon was not cooked on my salad and the pear slices were brown. Once the salmon was cooked, the salad was good. My husband loved the lasagna. Had a taste of the butternut squash ravioli and that was delicious. Our friend had the Osso Busco and liked it very much.
The service was good and we like the atmosphere.

The server was friendly, attentive, and seemed like good service. Drink selection is minimalistic. The duck whatever was horrible. 50% carrots in it and horrible taste. I ate it anyway so not to be a complainer. The lasagna was a 5/10 and edible, but my date didn't enjoy it. I always wanted to try here, now I don't. Would pick a cheap Italian place over this.

Recently dined here for a mid-week Pre-Theater dinner. First time at Gravy and we were very impressed. Warm, cozy atmosphere on a cold, rainy evening. We loved the garlic rolls to start, and excellent entrees for both of us...the short ribs and chicken picatta were exceptional. Friendly and attentive staff. Highly recommend.

We showed up to the restaurant 5 mins before our reservation and waited 15 mins to be seated. Then when we were seated the table was rocky. Normally not such a big deal but it was the over theme of the night and it really set the tone for the rest of the meal.

The good:
Risotto balls were great, the butternut squash ravioli were very tasty.

The bad:
Entree were really bad
Osso bucco was uneatable, the meat had the texture of rubber it was really off putting.

My girlfriend had the special moussaka she literally ate a third of it. The waitress saw the full plates when she cleared the table and thought nothing of it . When she asked if we wanted a box we let her know it wasn’t very good and would not be taking it home. That was the end of the conversation. The food took extremely long to come out. Our entrees
Came out staggered. In addition we ordered the ravioli as an appetizer and it was brought out with the mains. Over all gravy really missed the mark.

As an Italian American from good old Brooklyn New York I have yet to find a decent Italian place in the triangle.

Gravy is a fine place. It is just fine. Don’t go expecting fine dining. Go expecting fine food, with fine service with a fine atmosphere. It’s all fine. Not spectacular, just fine.

Another awesome dining experience at Gravy! Stopped in on a Saturday late afternoon and were treated to excellent service, fantastic cocktails, and outstanding Italian food. Spaghetti and meatballs, lasagna, and ravioli - not to mention delicious garlic knots!! Gravy never disappoints and is always at the top of our list of go-to Raleigh restaurants.
