I can see why you it’s important to make reservations for this place—it’s beloved, and for good reason. Really flavorful food, fantastic homemade pastas. More authentic than anywhere else I’ve been to in the triangle area so far.

The best Italian food is all about the simple fresh ingredients.. Gocciolina nails that every single time. It is understated and it's all about the fabulous seasonal ingredients prepared just right. Portions are just the right size. Make reservations well in advance if you want to go on the weekends or popular times.

I normally don't like cannolis but these were great! The grass-fed steak may have been the best steak I ever had. The appetizers and each of our meals were spectacular. You must get the double espresso. In short this restaurant set the bar.

Solid food... sometimes I don't like going out to eat cuz my wife and I are both good cooks and you don't get your money's worth... This time that was not the case The food was really good it's worth the wait.... The one thing I would say is the bread sticks they put in the glass on your table are just not needed. I recommend getting a bunch of the antipastos they are great. It's not even that expensive for Durham.

Geat Italian restaurant. Expensive place. But great people. The fish I had was to salty but the gave me free desert for it. It was the drinks and atmosphere that I went for.

From the time walked in the restaurant, I knew I would like the place. It's a busy spot and fairly cozy. There is a waiting room with the bar at the next door so if you are the person who can enjoy a drink or two while you are waiting, this is your spot.
