Stagioni Ratings and Reviews
Save room for zeppoli!
The food was great: well conceived, well seasoned, well prepared. We had a nice bottle of wine recommended by our server. The meal was well paced also -- never felt in a rush, nor did we feel like we were sitting inordinately long between courses. And the coup de grace were the zeppoli, and especially the salted caramel sauce that goes with the 'pillows of heaven'. Overall, very satisfied with the experience.
A wonderful dining experience provided by true gastronomy professionals. A very thoughtful menu keeping in mind the flavors each ingredient adds to the dish, deliberately avoiding over empowerment by a single one.
Looking forward to returning, so I may try those items on the menu I passed over.
The food was very good! Great flavors, but portions are on the small side, for example octopus appetizer you only have a small piece of octopus sliced in half and fried, little tough, and quite small portion.
We had special fish of the day was great, and tried the Pasta de Pepe that as well as the octopus was one of the courses recommended by our waiter. Pasta was good!
Overall we did notice that the place was too packed with tables and poor waiters that worked very hard had to fight to get in/out of the kitchen through the swing door.
Way too loud!!! Very hard to have a conversation. Most probably will not go back because of these reasons. But loved the open kitchen and kudos to the chefs...just be more generous with your portions!
My husband and I were here for my birthday. It was our first time and we truly enjoyed the ambiance and coziness if the bar area.
The food is outstanding! Everything is wonderfully fresh, creative and not lacking in presentation or taste!
Let me not forget to mention the zeppoles with salted carmel sauce!
The bartender, which doesn't adequately describe this gentleman, Is the best in Charlotte ! Knowledgeable and creative! You can count on his recommendations and if you want to try something new....ask about his own creations!
Thank you for a special time and we will be back!
Excellent meals tonight. It is back on my list of Charlotte go too now. They have revised the menu and I can't complain about a thing. The pizza, the pasta, the steak. All Excellent. Only flaw in the evening is our waiter although very good forgot our order of pate and the desert to go. We let him know just for fyi. The place is a bit overpriced on drinks...the Basil should have been $10-12 and not $18. Good job Bruce and family.
We went for a late valentines dinner. We started with mussels and the roasted beet salad which were both incredible and easy to share. Everything was fresh, seasonal, and local and you could really tell in the flavor profile of each dish and cocktail. I am not a huge pasta fan, but the gnocchi and cavatelli changed my mind. Beautiful atmosphere and decor, but it was a little loud for me at the beginning of our dinner. Overall, it was a great experience and we will definitely be back.
Having read the reviews and talked with a friend who had been there, my wife and I were looking forward to a very nice dinner. Unfortunately, it was just "so so". We arrived early evening as we had theater tickets after dinner and there very few people in the restaurant yet the hostess sat us at what was usually a "4 top table" which had been separated to make into a pair of 2 tops and was right next to another couple. We could "reach out and touch" them without any trouble. Most other tables were empty.
I had the NC Trout and it was over cooked and very dry. My wife had the gnocchi and it two was "ok". My wife thought Maggiano's is better and that is a chain.
Service was good. Waiter was attentive and helpful. Highlight of the night.
We sat at kitchen side bar during a busy Thursday evening. The chef was completely organized and clearly in charge,but still had time to talk with us and answer a few questions. His team were all professionals working smoothly together who turned out beautifully plated meals in rapid succession. The food was spot on. Highly recommend!
The food was excellent... I've never even smelled collard greens before without the gag reflex kicking in, but they were wonderful here. The mussels were good (but Good Food does them better), pork was well cooked, the potato gnocchi nearly melted, and the polenta was worth admission on its own. Loved the strange flavors of gelati (olive oil was unexpectedly better than poppy seed), and the cheese plate - while not to my taste - was well portioned and presented. I brought my own bottle of wine, and our server happily decanted it while we tried the cocktails, (Bella Rossa > than The Alternative) and the $25 corkage fee was, while a little high, perfectly acceptable thanks to her. I felt like, in the end, I had received far more value for my money than I had anticipated and enjoyed nearly everything I ate. (Bringing the wine bottle likely helped...)
Prior to arriving I was more excited about the location than the food... this was a little bit of a letdown as it was not as secluded as I had expected from the website description. It's still a very nice place - just not quite what I was expecting. The dining room has an open layout and is a little bit loud, but not nearly as bad as it could be without the sound-dampers on the ceiling. I was sitting in the seat nearest the kitchen, which detracted from the intended ambiance a bit. The increased foot-traffic, slightly elevated noise level, and the fluorescent lighting behind me all served to lessen the experience, if only slightly. Recommend requesting a table on the side walls or toward the center of the dining room for a better experience.
Very good overall... not necessarily somewhere I will make an explicit effort to visit again, but it will definitely remain on my list of restaurants to consider for out-of-town visitors or special occasions.
As an aside, if you Uber here, check the pickup location as it appears that the app directs drivers to the back parking lot near RuRu's Tacos instead of the front courtyard)
Service is an important part of any restaurant experience. My experience at Stagioni's left me underwhelmed. The food was fine but not outstanding. Maybe it was the dishes the three of us chose. But the service was subpar. Several times we had to get the waitress's attention just to have our needs met - including to order after being seated 15 minutes. Not what i expect when I am dining out.
