Cugino Forno is located in the Golden Belt Campus and serves up delicious Neopolitan-style pizza, salads and dessert. My favorite is the Margarita pizza- it is SO good!!! It is a casual restaurant with a big inside seating area with large communal tables and also some outdoor seating. There is also a large grassy area for kids to run around. A fun place to hang out with family and friends.

Great spot for Napoli pizza in Durban’s Golden Belt campus. Ultra thin crispy pizza the way I like with a slight char. We loved their Blanco, Funghi, and Marinara pizzas! Wish that they had options with beef and chicken, but they are amazing none the less! Also, their salads are extremely fresh and taste amazing! By far the best salads I’ve had at a pizza spot. Their desserts are really good too, tried the tiramisu and berry fruit tart. Check out @raleating on Instagram & TikTok for recommendations on Triangle food spots!

I've finally found it, best pizza in Durham! That's if you're looking for a true Neapolitan pie. I highly recommend dining in, as the best way to enjoy this type of pizza is straight out of the oven. Take out is still great but just not perfection. Also recommend the salads, they're enormous, delicious, and really a steal at their price

The pizzas here were one of the most authentic I've had. The crust is perfectly made, and baked using wood fired grills...

Okay, why is a guy who can't eat pizza (wheat intolerant) rating them? They offer 3 fantastic salads Creative,tasty, large salads. Their Verona is over the top.

I’ve eaten A LOT of their pizza and cannolis since they opened. Each pie has been perfection. They’ve become one of my all time favs. Happy to have them in Durham! Recommended!

Great pizza and salads. Liked the condiment bar where you could add more sauce, parm, or seasonings. Didn't see any light beer available, would be a good option since there is a micro brew next door if you want the heavy beers.

We’ve gotten take out from here a few times now. The pizza itself is simple, but with very high quality ingredients and a perfectly cooked crust. I’ve gotten the Bianca, and I love the ricotta on this pizza. Also their desserts are outstanding!! Especially the tiramisu!

If you are looking for an awesome pizza, this is the right place. 1 pizza is enough for 2 people. There is a brewery next door: they also serve drinks so that you can drink beer and pizza :) Their cannoli is also great! I am really happy to see that this place in Durham

Every since leaving NY, it's been hard to find a good pizza place in NC. Cugino Forno does not disappoint. The Funghi, Margeritha, and Bianca are my favorites. Perfectly made, and the taste is amazing. I cannot recommend this pizza enough. The pizza tastes amazing dine in, take out, or with delivery.
