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.

Best Italian in Raleigh! I can’t wait to return. We enjoyed the lasagna and a lovely kale salad. The Bolognanese is the greatest too!

Wasn't really happy with the food portion size. I had two medium-sized shrimp and two medium-sized shrimp on my dish.

Birthday
There was a small selection, the chicken was dry and the lasagna had more sauce and noodles than anything else. We spent over $100 for three meals but we really did not enjoy the food at all

Food was good but the service was slow and disorganized. Several tables around us had received their drinks and ordered before a waitress came to us to take our drink orders.

Beautiful patio, I didn’t even know the had one. The weather was great but it was also shaded with fans. Our server Kate was prompt and thoughtful. Everything from apps to dessert was delicious but the mushroom gnocchi stole the show. I think it’s very well priced for the quality of the food.

Service was atrocious. Started out great (with the exception that waitress messed up the cocktail order but not end of the world). Bread and apps came fast. 45 min later dinner arrived. Cold pasta. Water never was refilled. Ordered desert and espresso. Espresso never came. Absolutely went downhill for no reason. Would not recommend this place to anyone

The host was completely disinterested in his job, and had already given away our table when we arrived, so we ended up at a high top (we were admittedly about 10 minutes late). Other than that, the service was great. Food was just okay.

Excellent service, wonderful food. We sat outside, and the courtyard is so pleasant. We aren't ready for indoor dining yet and it was pretty noisy when we passed through. Still, for that food it might have been worth it!

We use to love Gravy, went there on a regular basis. Food now is just not consistently good, calamari was mushy, lasagna noodles so dry in parts I couldn’t cut it with a knife. Lasagna used to come out in a hot bubbly compote, now just piled on a plate and WAY over seasoned. Salads come out and there’s absolutely no dressing, so bland. The time before we came all the meals were cold. Not sure what’s going on!

Forgot the garlic knots. The chicken parm wasn’t good. The Bolognese was good as were to gnocchi. Bruschetta and arranchini were average. We certainly expected much better food for the high prices.
